The Alexander III Bridge was completed in 1900. The 107-metre-long body consists of a bridge arch. The lower body of the bridge does not affect the view of the Champs Elysees and the Royal Military Academy. As a symbol of the friendship between France and Russia at that time, the bridge was named after Alexander III, the founder of the bridge and father of Czar Nicholas II. At both ends and sides of the bridge, there is a huge stone pillar. The stone pillar is a statue of bronze-plated knights. The flying horse is very vivid, and it is an excellent work of art. The bridge is very conspicuous on the Seine River because of its magnificent sculpture and decoration.
