Pont Alexandre III

Previous Index Next

If one walks from the Hôtel des Invalides over the Esplanade des Invalides in direction of the Seine, one can see the golden statues of the Pont Alexandre III from quiet a distance. The 108m long bridge, which spans the river in one arch, is a very decorated iron construction. It was constructed 1900 for the world exposition. Its name is due to the russian czar Alexander III.

At the northern bank of the Seine before the bridge there are the "Grand Palais" and the "Petit Palais", of which the two roofs can be seen sticking out on the left and on the right.
