1. Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower (French: la Tour Eiffel) is a steel tower in Paris, France
, which has become the main symbol of Paris today. From its opening on March 31, 1889, until 1930, it was the tallest building in the world. It was designed by French engineer Gustav Eifel.
2. Sainte Chapelle
The Sainte-Chapelle was built between 1244 and 1248 by order of the French king Louis the Saint. It was deliberately intended as a storage place for holy relics: King Ludwig had acquired part of the lance with which Jesus should have been pierced. In addition, an alleged piece of the cross and the crown of thorns of Christ were recorded in the chapel. At that time there was still a strict standard of thought: the relics were only accessible to the nobility and the clergy and remained closed to the common people.
Montmartre is the name of a hill in the north of Paris and an earlier village located there. The 18th district of Paris, created in 1860 by incorporating the villages of Montmartre, La Chapelle and Clignancourt, also bears this name. The Montmartre hill is the city's highest natural elevation. The Sacré-Cœur basilica, which can be seen from afar, crowns its summit at a height of 130 m. The famous stairs and a funicular, the Funiculaire de Montmartre, lead up the hill.The village of Montmartre was an artistic and literary stronghold and a popular destination in the 19th century. Today, the artists who exhibit their work on the Place du Tertre and make portraits, caricatures and silhouettes mainly attract tourists. Another attraction is the vineyard of the Commanderie du Clos Montmartre, the more acidic drops of which are cultivated by a committed community of the artistic milieu.
4. Notre Dame
The Roman Catholic Church Notre-Dame de Paris is the cathedral of the Archdiocese of Paris. The church dedicated to Our Lady, the Blessed Virgin Mary, was built between 1163 and 1345 and is thus one of the earliest Gothic church buildings in France. Her name is Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris in French, often just Notre-Dame. Its characteristic silhouette rises in the historic center of Paris on the eastern tip of the Seine island Île de la Cité in the 4th arrondissement of Paris with the altar in a direction about 30 degrees south than east. The towers, which are symmetrical on both sides of the other branch of the main axis, are often referred to collectively as the west towers, and are locally distinguished as the north and south towers. The two natural stone towers are 69 meters high. The interior of the nave is 130 meters long, 48 meters wide and 35 meters high; it can accommodate up to 10,000 people. The slim wooden roof rider reached up to 93 meters in height and also served as a 5th-order measurement point.
5. Centre Pomidou
The Center national d’art et de culture Georges-Pompidou, colloquially also Center Pompidou or Beaubourg, also called La Raffinerie by the locals, is a state art and culture center in the 4th arrondissement of Paris. It was designed by architects Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers and Gianfranco Franchini on the initiative of former French President Georges Pompidou and opened on January 31, 1977 after a five-year construction period.
6. Tuileries garden
The Tuileries Garden doesn't seem to leave anyone indifferent-it 's the oldest park in Paris and it will feel like an open-air museum, as the garden houses various historical sculptures (the most famous of which are Mercury riding Pegasus (1701-1702), Theseus and the Minotaur (1821), Nymphe (1886)). And that's not all-the Tiler Garden has chairs that can be moved easily, making the park an perfect location for a picnic.
7. Shakespeare and company book store
Shakespeare and Company bookstore is noteworthy not only for its historical beauty and variety of books, but also for the fact that it has been in the heart of Paris since 1951. True, only 13 years later did the bookstore get its current name-its founder, George George Whitman, renamed Shakespeare's bookstore in 1964 in honor of William Shakespeare's 400th birthday. In the bookstore, everyone will find a book that suits their tastes in a variety of genres, while those who do not want to buy books but read books are invited to sit comfortably in one of the store's chairs, choose any reading material from high book shelves, and enjoy reading books with magic.
8. Musee du Louvre
It is housed in the former royal palace of France, the Palais du Louvre, and is located on the right bank of the Seine in the center of Paris. The inner courtyard with a glass pyramid, the main entrance to the Louver, is located on the historic axis from the bell tower of the church of St-Germain-l'Auxerrois to the Champs Elysées and the Grande Arche in La Défense. Under the reign of Philippe Auguste (1190-1202), the Louver originally served as a castle in the Middle Ages to protect the city of Paris. In the second half of the 14th century, Charles V changed the purpose of the Louver and became the residence of the Kings of France for almost 700 years. In 1793 the Louver became a museum, and since then the Palais du Louver has been used to preserve and present thousands of works of art.
9. Musee D’orsay
If the Louver takes the honored 1st place as the most visited museum in the world, the Orsay Museum is not far behind-it is the 10th most visited museum. The museum is housed in the former railway station and its collection consists mainly of French works of art from 1848 to 1915, represented by the most popular artists-Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Georges Sera and others. Be sure not to miss the most emblematic icon of the museum, the clock that offers a spectacular view of romantic Paris, including the Sacred Heart Basilica mentioned above. All you've got to do is enjoy!
10. Palace of Versailles
The biggest and maybe the most famous palace in the world is not anything to take lightly. A testament to the opulence and luxury of the imperial empire, Versailles developed from a hunting lodge in the 17th century to the supremacy of domination in the century that followed. André Le Nôtre, who created the French formal garden style, and the virtuoso artist and decorator Charles Le Brun, were only two of the masters who made their mark in Versailles.
