Pont Alexandre III by Léonard Cotte

Spanning the Seine in Paris, the Pont Alexandre III is one of the most opulent and photogenic bridges in the French city. Decorated in the Beaux-Arts style, the bridge is decorated with statues of cherubs and nymphs and illuminated by ornate lamps. The bridge is named for Russian Tsar Alexandre and was built in honour of the Franco-Russian Alliance in 1892. The bridge’s style is reminiscent of the Grand Palais, which sits at the bridge’s north end. (Paris, France)
