About Paris

Paris is known around the world as the “capital of love,” and even if you don't understand the history of Paris at all, you certainly know about such cultural symbols as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe, and Notre-Dame de Paris. In addition to visiting famous tourist sites, as a cultural capital, you can also explore the art museums of Paris, stroll through the "left bank” of art and literature, look for street art in Montmartre, and visit the homes of famous personages. Of course, how could you come to Paris without trying authentic French cuisine! Leaving aside the top Michelin three-starred restaurants in Paris, the streets and alleys are all bursting with a variety of French restaurants. Paris is a city that will meet all your heart’s desires!

Louvre (French: Musée du Louvre) is located in the heart of Paris, France Seine River North, ranked first in the world's four major museums. Founded in 1204, it was initially a French palace, lived 50 kings and queens of France. It is one of the most precious Renaissance buildings in France, with a rich collection of classical painting and sculpture throughout the world. Now the Louvre museum, covering about 198 hectares, divided into two parts old and new, the glass pyramid entrance in front of the Palace, covers an area of 24 hectares, is a Chinese architect IM Pei design. August 10, 1793, the Louvre Art Museum was formally opened as a museum. The Louvre has become a world-renowned art gallery, one of the greatest art treasures. It is the world-famous Palace of Manpower. Another contribution to the Louvre Museum President Mitterrand made is to invite famous Chinese-American architect IM Pei to design a new entrance to the museum. Mr. Pei, after careful consideration, proposed the construction of a pyramid scheme. This pyramid as the Louvre museum, but also for the city of Paris has added a new dazzling brilliance. With this pyramid, the audience is much more reasonable to visit the line. Here visitors can go directly to their favorite exhibition hall, as in the past without having to go to a showroom and several other through the rooms, sometimes even bypass seventy-eight meters: a modern museum, logistics facilities in general half of the total area. Past the Louvre Museum only 20% of the city for logistics. With this pyramid, the museum will have enough service space, including a reception hall, office, storage room and a ticket office, post office, canteen, locker rooms, lounges, the Louvre museum services and therefore more complete.

On April 15, 2019, the world was stunned to learn fire had ravaged Notre-Dame Cathedral in the heart of Paris. In a matter of hours, centuries of history that had survived revolution, two world wars, and natural disasters was swept from existence. It is with heavy heart we mourn the loss of these cultural treasures.
