Fun fact to add to your article :

"Pont des arts" is so famous worldwide that the city of Paris instruct their officers to remove, each years padlocks locked to the bridge.

It is not because they don't like padlocks, but because, as @Saha99saha said, there are so many padlock that the bridge could be broken in reason of the total weight of padlock.

It is one of the oldest bridge in Paris and doesn't support too much weight on it.

If you put your padlock in 2020, it will be certainly removed in 2021 to make some place for new padlocks.
