Louvre Museum in Paris

The Louvre is beautiful and huge. Everyone who comes into it will receive a shock (aesthetic, of course). Lost in the Louvre is a tricky business. We will help you navigate in this oversaturated place with beauty. “Mona Lisa” by the unrivaled Leonardo da Vinci. A canvas masterpiece covered in legends and secrets. Nothing attracts tourists so much as the bewitching smile of Gioconda. The second star of the Louvre (only in a row, and not in significance) is Venus of Milos. The creation of the statue of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, dates from about 120 BC. The ideal proportions of the goddess fascinate and attract to itself. According to legend, the creator of the statue died in the arms of his model in a fit of passion. The work was not finished, so the masterpiece was left without hands. Here is a woman! (This refers to the Continue reading

The Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower is a symbol of Paris, located on the Champ de Mars. Almost twice as high as the Cheops pyramid, the building has been leading among the tallest buildings in the world for more than 40 years. Only in 1930 she lost the championship to Chrysler Building (New York). The architectural landmark bears the name of its author – designer Gustave Eiffel. During the creation of the metal structure, no one assumed that the entrance arch would become a world celebrity. More than 7 million people visit it annually. Unfortunately, a survey among tourists in 2007 showed that more than a quarter of them are disappointed with the attraction. The crowded inside the structure does not fully enjoy the views from the tower. Indescribable beauty lighting design: she wrapped herself in 40 km of wire. About 20 thousand light bulbs (it took 4.6 million euros) give the creation of the Eiffel a fabulous sparkle. In 2008, the tower sparkled with blue, strewn with stars (France was then the EU presidency and the radiance of the tower resembled the flag of Europe). You can visit the ice rink at the bottom of the structure. About two dozen times it was sold, several times – for scrap. This landmark of Paris survived the fires of 1956 and 2003. False mining reports and suicide cases have occurred in the history of the Iron Lady. We do not want to intimidate you, but we have no right to hide such facts. The Eiffel Tower is a place of Continue reading

City and resort of Marseille

Marseille is the largest Mediterranean port, located in the southeastern part of France at the mouth of the Rhone on the shores of the Gulf of Lyon. Multinational, multifaceted and multicultural city. Marseille is the westernmost resort of the Cote d’Azur, although Toulon, Cassis and Hyeres also claim this title. Air traffic: direct flights and flights with transfers. Located thirty kilometers from Marseille, Marseille-Provence International Airport (MRS) is not connected by direct regular flights with either Moscow or the Northern Capital of Russia.
