Pont Neuf is one of the oldest bridges which stretches across the river Seine
. Ironically Pont Neuf
, translated into English means 'new bridge'. Standing at the western point of the Île de la Cité
, (island of the city), the Pont Neuf bridge connects the left and right banks of the city. The bridge was officially inaugurated in 1607, by King Henry IV. The attraction and specialty of Pont Neuf is that, it was one of the first to have pavements. Parisians love to socialize and hang out here, and hence there is no doubt that the bridge is one of the most visited spots in the city.
