The most instagrammable bridge in Paris
Paris. Of all the beautiful bridges that cross Paris, my favorite was always Alexander III. Because of the golden, of course, but above all because of the opulence and sumptuousness that makes our hearts beat a little bit faster. I guess it’s quite predictable that such a majestic bridge had been built in honor of the Russian Czar Alexander III (due to Franco-Russian alliance). I mean, there is something very Russian about boldness. Considered as one of the most amazing 19th-century engineerings, it is impossible to remain indifferent to the bridge and everything around it, from the Invalides to the Eiffel Tower. which is seen from one side, not forgetting the Petit and the Grand Palais.

And of course, I would never miss the chance of photographing there. Despite the wind, the people and the sky threatening rain, the photos turned out exactly how I wanted. Truth is, the bridge itself is absolutely photogenic and absolutely amazing. Probably one can’t even count how many pics were taken there already.
So, if you want great photos I suggest you wake up early and be there as soon as the sun rises. That’s what I do most of the time. But here, here I was just another tourist pretending I was a Parisian. What do you think, yay or nay?
