My longing The Eiffel Tower

Paris is a dream destination for all tourists. I think this is actually the first place which we all should visit. Paris has so many attractions so familiar that even people who have never been there felt as though they have. Among many attractions Eiffel Tower is my hotspot sight in Paris.

This sublime and monumental architecture has towering impact on tourists mind. Even if one is on a virtual tour, this iconic tower never fails to leave its impression on one’s mind.

And for all those curious who must be interested in knowing a little bit of history of Eiffel Tower, here is a small dose of it. The Eiffel Tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris, named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower. Erected in 1889 as the entrance arch to the ‘1889 World’s Fair’, it has become the cultural symbol of France and one of the most recognizable historical structures in the world. The tower is the tallest structure in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world. The tower stands 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building.

Got Bored! I understand some of us hate history. I had friends in school who used to hate history books. But I love history. My history teacher in school happened to be a good-looking handsome guy. Most of the girls in my class even those who hated history were infatuated by him. In fact, he was my first crush. Hey guys, I am sorry for driving away from the topic “ Eiffel Tower”. Getting away from history to some cool facts about Eiffel Tower.

You get to see maddening crowd outside the Eiffel Tower. Dancing and singing! Euphoria in the air! Wanna go to the top of tower, take the elevator up and enjoy the enchanting view. Amazing and mesmerizing!
