It's there, ruling and watching over Paris. Nothing new can be said about her, just that she's simply amazing. And beautiful. And one thing you must see before you die. Once, twice and all the times you want. When it was built, it aroused fierce opposition. It was called "hollow candlestick" or "pitful lampost". Inagurated in 1889 for the World Fair, the Tour Eiffel became one of the best-known monuments on the planet. Key figures: 324m high 1,665 steps 2.5 million rivets 50 tonnes of paint needed to decorate it 20,000 light bulb that sparkle at the beginning of each hour.

Beautiful pics, the layout of Paris is awesome.

Can't even remember the last time I've been there, I was about 7 years old.:(

For me Paris is too big to be beautifull...at least for someone who visited Paris only once (and stayed only 7 days). As you Singidunum said, it's size is scary! I think population is 6 million...God, that's like whole Albania!

Paris stricto sensu, or intra-muros as we say = 2,2 M
Ile de France (something like the greater London) = 11 M

Whole Serbia :D

Actually I don't know. I only know that Adolf made a picture of himself standing in front of the tower when Nazi army occupied Paris :colgate:

Very useful information, ha...

^Palais Trocadero? I always called it the Palais Chaillot.
You're right :doh: :doh: but to me it has always been only "Le Troca" , hence my mistake.
Indeed, it's "Palais de Chaillot", the real "Palais du Trocadéro" was this "thing" : :puke:

yup, that's where I got an autograph of Der Kaiser during the World Cup
And another time a whole group of scots came with their kilts, and not much else :lol:
Anyway, you can clearly see where I lived, since you can see pretty much 60 km around :p
