The bridge of lovers in Wroclaw

17th June 2016

Wroclaw is popular with tourists but one of the landmarks is 
" Bridge of Lovers". It started in 2008. People who are in love put padlocks on the bridge but the keys throw to the river so it means their love should last for long time or forever. I think it is a nice custom.




Have a nice Friday.

  3. I'm afraid this has caused quite a problem in Hawaii because the locks have caused the railings at a popular walkway to rust and people throw the keys into the ocean which has harmed the sealife.

  4. It's a lovely idea but have heard of a few bridges having to remove because of the weight of the locks.

  5. Very soon, there will be no place left to hang new padlocks.

  7. I had first learned about this custom some years back when reading about a bridge in Paris. I've seen some bridges here in Spain with a few locks but nothing at this level.

  8. It was a charming idea but it has caused environmental problems.
