Beautiful! Versailles' looks heavenly... and Place Stanislas' is wonderful as well... and what to say about the Petit Palais'... just stupendous. India's is subtle but elegant... in the end they're all beautiful in a very different way

Thanks for the pics.

It may not look like it, but this triumphal arch in St. Petersburg is entirely made of cast iron. It was not some kind of communist excess, but it was built in 1834-1838

Some amazing examples there! I'm in love with elaborate gates.


Nothing comes close to French and Indian gates, anyway.

From 1897, the geological museum, Copenhagen, Denmark:


Apartment building, 1889, also Copenhagen:


Same gate:


And the entire building:

France has the most mezmerizing gates in the world, hands down.

I especially love the black-painted cast/wrought iron ones with golden highlights and many playful details, especially when featuring Art Nouveau, baroque or Beaux Arts architecture.
