France is known for its ornate and extravagant monuments, and Pont Alexandre III is known as the most ornate and extravagant bridge in France. The bridge is a sight to behold. It was inaugurated in 1900 for the world fair and has been amazing people since then. The games and nymphs of the bridge are famous. The bridge had to be so beautiful and extravagant because of its location. This is a bridge which you cross when going between Champs Elysees, Eiffel Tower, and the Invalides. Champs Elysees is literally named after heaven, so any bridge near it had to be amazing. There are 4 gilt statues who keep a vigilant watch over the bridge. These include Fame of the Sciences, Fame of Commerce, Fame of Charlemagne, and Fame on the industry. Each of these, as the name suggests, celebrate something different. The fact that they are gilded gives them a beautiful gold shine. There are also two Nymph reliefs on the bridge. Both of these Nymphs celebrate the Franco-Russia alliance. One of them is called Nymphs of the Seine and bears the arms of France, while the other is called Nymphs of the Neva, and bears arms of Imperial Russia.
