The Pont Royal is a bridge crossing the river Seine in Paris. It is the third oldest bridge in Paris, after the Pont Neuf and the Pont Marie. Thanks to Sherry Lynn Felix for helping me with the name of the bridge.
The Seine is a 776-kilometre (482 mi) long river and an important commercial waterway within the Paris Basin in the north of France.
There are 37 bridges within Paris and dozens more spanning the river outside the city. The river is only 24 metres (79 ft) above sea level 446 kilometres (277 mi) from its mouth, making it slow flowing and thus easily navigable.
The river is a popular site for both suicides and the disposal of bodies of murder victims. In 2007, 55 bodies were retrieved from its waters; in February 2008, the body of supermodel-turned-activist Katoucha Niane was found there.
