Paris
Paris is so unique and unmatchable that it is definitely worth visiting at least once a life. The sights of the city are so famous that one can describe them for long not even having ever been there. Revolutions and ages, wars and empires – Paris has seen a lot. And Paris has saved the evidences of what it witnessed long ago. Streets and parks, cathedrals and palaces, where the events described by Dumas and Hugo took place and seem to still be sensible, delicate taste in art, architecture and music – Paris has always been the center of the world’s attention. Paris became cultural dominant of Europe, just like Eifel Tower once had become vertical dominant of Paris.
