The Louvre in the last rays of the day

Although many people think that the modern glass pyramid in the centre disfigures the Louvre, I do not agree with them. It’s like the highlight which highlights the Louvre from the rest of French chateaux. It seems to connect the past and the present. And certainly it pleases the photographers! I almost have not seen pictures of the louvre without the pyramid.

Amazing Fact:

The Louvre has 8.5 million visitors a year and is the most visited museum in the world!

Pirate ship

Pirate ship holds of which are full of gold! Childish dreams come true in Disneyland. From the time I was a little kid, I was dreaming about going to Disneyland, but the first time I did it I was 32. When I went there I was not really hoping for something special and was quite skeptical. But I was wrong. Disneyland allowed me to feel like a kid again! It is a great place both for adult and children.

Amazing Fact:

In 2012 Paris Disneyland had about 15.5 million visitors compared to 8.4 million for Paris’ Louvre museum and 6.6 million for the Eiffel Tower.

Château de Chenonceau

One of the most famous and visited castles in France. It is unusual by the fact that it is located entirely on the river. The castle is about 500 years old. Château de Chenonceau has many well preserved interiors, so it is very interesting not only outside but inside as well. Not many people know, but it is privately owned, and thus turned into a museum and is opened to public.

If you like old castles, I strongly recommend you to go by car through the Loire Valley in France. There is a huge number of ancient castles located just 20 minutes drive from each other, or even less. I am sure you will love it!

Amazing Fact:

Château de Chenonceau was preserved from destroying during the French Revolution, only because it was used as a bridge to cross the river, being the only one within many miles.

The View of the Eiffel Tower from the park

To take a photo of a sight which was previously captured by millions before is a big challenge for me. We all have seen the Eiffel Tower: the real one, on the photo, on TV or even in Las Vegas! What is the sense of any next photo of the Eiffel Tower taken from the common position? So for me it was much more important to take a photo of it in an unusual way. Spending some time on walking around the tower I was able to make this shot.

Amazing Fact:

Millions of people climb the Eiffel Tower every year. And it has had over 200 million unique visitors since its opening. By the way, the Eiffel Tower has 2,500,000 rivets in it.
