The oldest standing bridge over the Seine river has a long and colorful history. It was the city’s link to it’s heart, the Ile de la Cite; a lively centre of crime and commerce. The last Grand Master of the Templars was executed here by burning. In the 18th and 19th centuries, it was the hangout for gangs, street performers, quacks, false limb makers. The rise of the boulevards led to the Pont Neuf’s decline as a city centre, and soon it was just another bridge to cross.So what is it like today? After some extensive reconstruction and restorative work, the bridge was given an entirely new character. It’s a spot to watch the river slip by, from the extended bastions. It’s a spot for people photography. It’s a spot where boys drop to their knees with a ring in their hands. It’s a spot to fall in love.
- The extension has experienced much repair and remodel work, incorporating modifying of seven compasses in the long arm and bringing down of the roadway by adapting the curves from a practically semi-roundabout to curved structure.

Pont Neuf is the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris. It stands by the western (downstream) point of the Île de la Cité, the island in the middle of the river that was, between 250 and 225 BC, the birthplace of Paris, and during the medieval period, the heart of the city.
My favourite place to pass some agreable moments with friends by the Seine river bank... 😎😍😊
