Day 1 Paris – Pont des Arts – 1st Arrondissement (Part 4 of 4)

As I was walking along the Seine, I came across Pont des Arts, which was covered with love padlocks. I believe these have now been removed (?) due to the weight of them affecting the integrity of the bridge. Directly across from the bridge is the Institut de France.

The current bridge was built as a replica to the original bridge in the early 1980s, after the original bridge was damaged during WWI and WWII, and then a barge in 1979.
