Entry relat­ed to loca­tion: Cologne

The tra­di­tion of love locks has been around for quite a long time, although there are no reli­able sources of its ori­gin. In Europe, love cas­tles began to appear in the ear­ly 2000s, and in Rus­sia they even built a spe­cial love bridge in Moscow

The love locks were crit­i­cized by the city author­i­ties, the may­or of Cologne even want­ed to demol­ish them from the bridge, but even­tu­al­ly relent­ed in the face of pub­lic oppo­si­tion. There is also a bridge of lovers in Kyiv, where the peo­ple of Kyiv in love for­ev­er bind them­selves with the mys­te­ri­ous bonds of a snapped lock
