Eiffel Tower, France

From series “15 Unofficial Man-Made Wonders of the World”
Year: 1889. Height: 324 meters.

It's difficult to find someone who would be unfamiliar with the main attraction of Paris, the Eiffel Tower. This architectural landmark was named after the author, the architect Gustave Eiffel. The unusual tower with an arch was built for the opening of the World Expo, which took place in Paris in 1889. The structure served as the entrance arch. Initially, the tower, whose height is 324 meters, was planned as a temporary structure, but after the end of the exhibition it wasn’t taken away.

Eiffel Tower, France Today, the Eiffel Tower is considered the most visited of the paid-for sights in the world. It's also one of the most photographed buildings in the world. Each year, the symbol of Paris is visited by more than 7 million people. During its history, the tower was visited by a little less than 300 million people. Costs for construction of the grand tower were incredible. However, since the opening of the exhibition, it had such a success among tourists that costs were returned in less than two years.

Currently, one of the most famous towers in the world is essential for the practical usage. It is home to dozens of television antennas and radio equipment, cell towers, and even a unique weather station that monitors the radiation level in the city and the level of air pollution. Tourists can visit the tower at a reasonable cost. They can go up to its upper levels, ride vintage elevators, and admire the panorama of the city from dedicated lookouts. The ground floor of the tower houses the famous restaurant 58 Tour Eiffel, as well as some nice souvenir shops. Next - Christ The Redeemer

Top destination around Eiffel Tower - Paris

Famous Louvre is also one of main symbols of Paris . A former royal palace, starting from 1793 Louvre has been turned into a world-famous museum. It has gained an international fame, and one of main reasons for such a success is great works of art, including "Mona Lisa" and "Venus de Milo", that are exhibited here. The Louvre features a rich collection of paintings and sculptures that represent different eras until the XIX century. Here you will be able to see Eastern, Greek and Roman art, sculptures, and much more. The Egyptian collection occupies a significant part of the museum. Paintings by French artists of the XIV-XIX centuries, as well as works of Italian and Flemish artists are also very popular with visitors. It is better to devote one-two days to visiting the Louvre, or you will see only a very small part of the exhibitions. Louvre is not only a museum, but also a beautiful historic building, which also belongs to the French cultural heritage.

The Tuileries Gardens are located in the immediate vicinity of the Louvre . This is a perfect place for slow walks. In the XVII century, Colbert (who was, among other titles, the supreme commissary of royal buildings during the reign of Louis XIV) ordered garden architect Andre Le Notre to make a beautiful park. The garden looks today just the way it looked during those days. If you walk through the park, you will find yourself on Concorde Square , which is decorated with a Luxor obelisk of Ramses II. Walk a bit further, and you will reach Place Vendome famous for its numerous jewelry shops.
