To tell that France is one of the most romantic countries in the world it is to tell nothing! Everybody knows that Eiffel Tower is the symbol of the country. According to the leading tourist agencies data, France belongs to one of the most visited country in our world. Beauty of its sightseeings is beyond any disputes. Paris with silent waters of the Seina, Notre-Dame De Paris, marvelous white sand beaches, amazing natural conditions, monuments, lovely mountains, delicious cuisine, exquisite wine and, of course, friendly people. Moreover, if you decided to stay not in Paris, but either in the North or South of France, your staying won’t be too expensive. What else you have to visit in France? A great number of castles, sometimes it seemed that you are in a medieval country full of knights and kings. And all these castles are waiting fro you to become their Queen. The Alps are a great temptation to any traveler, even experienced one. On the South the Riviera is waiting for you. The Provence is full of small but adorable villages
French architecture is famous for already not one century. The most important buildings and monuments were made in the time of Carolingian dynasty and during the Roman Empire. During the first periods a lot of innovations came into French architecture. The second period brought buildings of Byzantine and Eastern origins. This period is famous for its churches and monasteries. Speaking about France is impossible about mentioning its cuisine and wine, especially champagne. To tell the truth France is not only one of the most visited city in the world, its cuisine ca be named as one of the most tasteful and delicious. Frenchmen are mad about cooking, cookers from France can be treated as the best cookers, they are highly attentive to each detail, even to minor details, while making even a simple dish. Be careful, its region has its own cuisine, sometimes there are even mixtures of other European cuisines.
As to my mind, French wine is even more popular than the Eiffel Tower. Frenchmen have been making their delicious wine since the Middle Ages, but in that times it was used only in monasteries. Only after the French Revolution it came into masses, a lot of vineyards were ruined, some confiscated. Wine regions in France are: Alsace, Beaujolais, Bergerac, Bordeaux, Bourgogne, Champagne, Jura, Loire Valley, Rhone Valley and the Languedoc-Roussillon and so on. Most Frenchmen drink wine as an aperitif, they drink it everyday, but fines for drunken-driving are rather high. By the way, a lot of French recipes contain wine as one of the ingredients, because here wine is not only a profitable business but an integral part of everyday life. Remember, that name and type of wine depends first of all, on the type of grape.
And, no doubts, there is no France without the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower is an icon of Paris and France; it is the most recognizable man-made constructer in the world. This Tower is named Eiffel because of its designer Gustave Eiffel. This Tower weighs 7.300 tons. It is amazing but the top of this tower sways from 5 to 7 cm when the weather is windy. Tower is prone to destructing and erosion, so each year it is painted in the new colour. Currently, it is brown-grey. Building of the Eiffel Tower took 3 years, nobody liked it, the public met it rather cold, people considered The Tower to be awesome, huge and eyesore. According to its designer the Tower had to live not more than 20 years, but during these years people got used to it and the Tower wasn’t demolished in 1909. Now, it attracts tourists from all over the world and made Paris the world’s famous capital!
