Travel Photo – The bridge of everlasting love

What`s this thing about padlocks all over the bridge? And what`s the connection of a padlock and everlasting love? Love locks can be found several places in the world. The Tumsky bridge in Wroclaw is one of the places where lots of couples lock a padlock for everlasting love. Almost every day a couple attach a padlock with their initials and dates, and then throw the key into the Odra river so their padlock remains locked forever as a symbol of their eternal love. You will see the padlocks all along the 52 meter long bridge.
