Built at the end of the 19th century for the Universal Exhibition, the Pont Alexandre III is one among the elegant bridges of Paris. Named after Tsar Alexander III, the first stone was laid by his son Tsar Nicolas II to symbolize the French-Russian friendship. Decorated with Art Nouveau lamps, cherubs, nymphs and winged horses, this ornate link is simply a marvelous wonder. A grand example of the excellent engineering of Jean Résal and Amédée d'Alby, the four gilded bronze statues of Fames are the most illustrious features of the bridge. One among the many photographed sights of the city.
