Sergiyev Posad Local Customs: 8 reviews and 15 photos
As in some other cities, also Sergiyev Posad has a bridge where married couples clamp padlocks on the railings. Usually the key should be thrown into the water underneath the bridge.
The love padlock is seen as a symbol for the never-ending love. This custom is known since the early 1980's when it started in the city of Pecs (Hungaria).
The bridge with the love Padlocks can be found near the southern end of the small park which is situated to the south of the monastery.
