Bridge of Lovers

Bridge of Lovers is the name for a cable-braced bridge across the Tura river in Tyumen. The bridge, which used to bear the name Peshekhodny ("Footbridge"), was constructed in the 1980s at the site of the wooden bridge ruined in 1979. The bridge is one of citizens' favourite resting places; you can always observe a lot of young people there, as the bridge is situated next to several institutions of higher education. To make it easier for lovers to make rendezvous, a clock was installed over the bridge entrance. Brightly illuminated at night, the bridge is bound to be visited by all the newly married couples on the day of the wedding. There is a tradition to hang padlocks on its handrails to symbolize a family union.
