This bridge over the Seine is the mostly lovely bridge I've ever seen with views of the Eiffel Tower, Grand Palace, Invalides, and other landmarks. The bridge itself is adorned with gold sculptures and gorgeous lanterns. We had family photographs taken here.

That is just a bridge... but what a bridge! This is a must-see. The golden sculptures are beautiful. And don't forget to look at the sides of the bridge!

Built for the 1900 Universal Exhibition, the bridge, named after a Russian czar, celebrated the new France-Russian alliance. The bridge shows off fine sculpture work, including cherubs, nymphs and winged horses on both ends. The gilded allegories atop pedestals on the right... More

The must see bridge in Paris to celebrate friendship between France and Russia (100 years ago or so).

Pretty bridge but that is not that much to see. Worth the visit of course, nice statues and everything. Best to go there when you go to the Petit and Grand Palais because they are very close to each other.

The Bridge is stunning. I understand it was opened by Tsar Nicholas II as it is dedicated to his father - Tsar Alexander III. I consider this one of the best places to view the Tour Eifeel from.

Pictures does not do this bridge justice. It is the most beautiful bridge I have ever seen. It is definitely a must see. My daughter didn't believe me until we were walking across the bridge and she didn't want to leave. Wow! Breathtaking!

Aesthetically I think it is one of the most beautiful bridges of Paris, from here you take great photos with the Eiffel Tower in the background. The peculiarity of this bridge are finely carved and gilded ornaments, luxury and elegance turn it into an attraction of high artistic value.
