That’s the bridge connecting the louvre and the art school, where couples used to place locks on its side then throw the keys in the Seine. I think they removed literally tons of locks because the bridge started to collapse.

The Arab World Institut is an institution that were created as a representation for the Arab world in France founded by 18 Arab countries in France to provide information about the Arab art and culture. It consists of a museum, library, auditorium, restaurant and offices.

It is famous for its beautiful architecture and geometric motifs formed by photo-sensitive motor controlled shutters that can close and therefore control the amount of light/heat entering the building from the sun. This building was designed by the famous Architect Jean Nouvel.

They serve different types of Couscous, Tajines and other oriental meals. I personally don’t like desserts there because they are too sweet but their mint tea is delicious, it’s must-try!
