Alexander Bridge in Paris, France
The building of the bridge took place in late nineteenth century and lasted almost three years. The structure was made in a factory and then transported and assembled using a huge crane. It is built of steel and stone in Art Nouveau style. The result is a 107.5 meters long, 40 meters wide and 6 feet tall bridge.
The bridge is decorated with lanterns, angels and nymphs. At the bridge ends are gilded with gold statues perched on pillars 17 meters high. Each ornament of the bridge was created by various artists. Although construction of the bridge began in May 1897 the first stone was laid by Tsar Nicholas II in October 1896, it was inaugurated only in 1900 at Exhibition UniversalaÂ. Bridge, which is the symbol of Russian-French friendship, was named after her father Nicholas II, Tsar Alexander III.
