如果你有机会去法国,一定不要错过这些地方!


WHEN you say the word "France", the Eiffel Tower (艾菲尔铁塔) or the Louvre (卢浮宫) may be the first things you think of. Let's get to know the most famous buildings in Paris, the capital of France.

Arc de Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe (凯旋门) is a famous monument (纪念碑). It is more than 50 metres high. It is the largest triumphal arch in the world. Once a brave person even flew his plane through it!

In 1806, Napoleon Bonaparte won a great battle. He then asked to build the arch to celebrate. It was finished in 1836.

Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) was a French general (将军) and politician (政治家). He ruled (统治) France from 1799 to 1814. Napoleon and his soldiers took most of western and central Europe. But he lost the Battle of Waterloo and became a prisoner (囚犯)

The Louvre

The Louvre Museum is a large and famous museum. It has some of the best art works in the world. The building lies in the centre of Paris, and used to be a royal palace (皇家宫殿).

Among the thousands of paintings in the museum, the most famous one is the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. Among the well-known sculptures (雕塑) are the Winged Victory of Samothrace (胜利女神) and the Venus de Milo (维纳斯).

Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower was built in 1889 to remember the French Revolution (法国革命). It is 300 metres high and was the world's tallest building until 1930.

People love the Eiffel Tower today. But its birth was difficult. At that time, many French people, like the famous writer Guy de Maupassant (莫泊桑), didn't want the tower to be built. They thought it didn't look nice. It was almost pulled down in 1909. But it was saved as it was used for radios at that time.
