Le Pont des Arts.

The new version of the bridge was built between 1981 and 1984 "identically" according to the plans of Louis Arretche, who had decided to reduce the number of arches from nine to seven, allowing the look of the old bridge to be preserved while realigning the new structure with the Pont Neuf. On 27 June 1984, the newly reconstructed bridge was inaugurated by Jacques Chirac – then the mayor of Paris.

Nowadays the bridge has become a hotspot for couples who attach a padlock to the railing and throw the key into the river below.
