Trees of Love

Luzhkov Bridge, popularly called “The Wedding Bridge”

It is a Russian tradition that newly married couples kiss on a bridge on their wedding day. As a symbo; of the strenght of their union they also attach a padlock with their names to the bridge, and as long as is kept locked they will remain together, so in many cases after placing their padlock they trow the keys to the River.

Because Moscow’s day-to-day bridges are clogged with traffic, the city built this romantic pedestrian bridge over the Vodootvodny Canal of the Moscow River (the access point is at the Prechistinskaya Embankment) so couples could smooch in peace. A group of three scultures trees of locks has been “planted” here so that newlyweds may fasten a lock inscribed with their vows.
