When you think of Paris, you think of Louvre, one of four representative buildings of Paris (Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral) and must-see attractions in Paris. It is also first of four major museums in world (Louvre in France, British Museum in UK, Hermitage in Russia and Metropolitan Museum of Art in USA).
The pyramid-shaped glass entrance in front of Louvre was designed by renowned Chinese architect I. M. Pei. In early days of its completion, this caused controversy, and most of people of Paris considered shape of glass pyramid inconsistent with classical European architecture of Louvre. But over time, it seems that vast majority of people appreciate this architectural art, which combines modernity and antiquity.
The Louvre houses a statue of Venus with a broken arm, an oil painting of Mona Lisa and a stone sculpture of Goddess of Victory, which are known as three treasures of world. The oil painting "Mona Lisa" is full of people. The painting is size of a computer monitor. The stone sculpture of Goddess of Victory is located in middle of stairs. It is relatively easy to see. There are very few people around Venus statue with broken arms. Many local tour groups are in a hurry. I came with three treasures and left after reading. I met two Chinese people at museum and asked me where exit was.
I can't fit into a crowd of people
In fact, Louvre is a large book, which is divided into six parts: Museum of Greco-Roman Art, Museum of Egyptian Art, Museum of Oriental Art, Painting Room, Sculpture Room and Decorative Arts Room. We rented an explainer and arrived early in morning. There was a sense of urgency. A day has passed, and we still got a lot of pleasure from watching it. If we really followed explainer and listened slowly, we might not finish it. in a week. I like it. History, donkey friends who love art, you must visit it carefully in your life.
