• Alexandre III Bridge - a destination not to be missed when traveling to Paris France

    Today, when the splendid Paris city of France is becoming a favorite tourist destination of people near and far, the Alexandre III bridge is the place that attracts the most tourists to visit.

    Introduction of Alexandre III bridge 

    The Alexandre III Bridge (French name Pont Alexandre-III) crosses the poetic Seine River , located between District 7 and District 8 of Paris, France. 
    This bridge was started in May 1897 by two engineers Jean Résal, Amédée d'Alby and architects Cassien-Bernard and Gaston Cousin, but in October 1896, the first stone was laid. 
    This is also a symbol of friendship between Russia and France because it is a gift from Emperor Alexander III to France on the occasion of the International Exhibition in Paris in 1900.
