Eiffel Tower
When it comes to Paris, many people think of the Eiffel Tower in the first place. The tallest building in Paris is located in the Champ de Mars on the Henan coast of Seine. It was built in 1889 and its name comes from its designer, famous architect and structural engineer Gustave Eiffel. Although it is the youngest of the four coordinates of Paris, it does not affect its reputation and status. Although today we saw that the tower took it for granted and was in harmony with the surrounding environment, but when it was built, it caused an uproar. In 1880, France was drawn from the Franco-Prussian War. In order to demonstrate national strength, in 1884, the French Parliament decided to hold the World Expo in Paris from May 5 to November 6, 1889, with the theme of celebrating the 100th anniversary of the victory of the French Revolution. The original Eiffel Tower was not as popular as it is now. After its construction, the elites of the Parisian literary and artistic architecture, including the writers Maupassant and Xiao Zhongma, held strong protests and signed the opposition against the construction of the Eiffel Tower. Protest book. The French people also have their own concerns: I feel that the tower will become a huge black chimney, which is incompatible with the ancient atmosphere of Paris. Some even predicted that the tower would collapse, and its lights would even kill all the fish of the Seine... But the facts speak louder than words, and the Paris Tower was quickly recognized and worshipped by the world. Its simple and graceful posture not only does not contrast with the surrounding ancient buildings, but harmoniously blends with it. It can be said that the perfect combination of technology and art, power and beauty.

Arc de Triomphe de l’Etoile
The Arc de Triomphe is in the center of the Charles de Gaulle Square, the western end of the Champs Elyses, the largest arch in the world. As its name suggests, this is the door to an triumph of the army welcoming the war. After the completion of the Arc de Triomphe, it actually caused inconvenience to the traffic. In the middle of the 19th century, a circular plaza and 12 roads were built around the Arc de Triomphe. Each road was 40-80 meters wide and radial, just like the stars. The splendid light, so this square is also called the Star Square, the Arc de Triomphe is also known as the "Star Gate." In 1970, after the death of General de Gaulle, it was renamed General Charles de Gaulle Square. The 12 streets of the city of Paris are centered around the Arc de Triomphe and radiate to the surrounding area. Standing here, I really feel that the horizon is very open, it is a bit of a domineering world. It seems that great buildings will suffer from twists and turns, and the Arc de Triomphe is no exception. In 1806, in order to commemorate the victory of the Russian-Austrian coalition in 1805, Napoleon ordered the construction of "a great sculpture" to welcome the French soldiers who were about to triumph. But then Napoleon was overthrown and the Arc de Triomphe project stopped midway. It was not until 1830 that the Bourbon dynasty was destroyed that the project could continue. After 30 years of intermittent operation, the Arc de Triomphe was finally completed on July 29, 1836.
