The Eiffel Tower

The most well-known landmark in the world is the Eiffel Tower. It announces to all that observe it: This is Paris. It dominates the skyline of Paris and is a very significant landmark of building construction history.


Not anything like it had ever been built like the Eiffel Tower. It is a 984-foot (300-meter) loom of wrought iron and open-lattice. The Eiffel Tower was the tallest arrangement in the world until the Chrusler Building was over in New York City in 1930. Otis Elevator Company had intended glass-walled elevators, which climbed the legs of the tower to get to the first and second platforms. From the second floor to the third platform, which is near the top, four balanced elevators go up and down in the region. If you looked on a clear day, from the top platform, the view stretches for 50 miles (80 kilometers). On the first height are three-glass-confined structure, there are two height. They both contain one restaurant: Le Parisian on the lower level and La Belle France on the higher level. The third part is teh Salle (hall) Gustave Eiffel, where there is space for business, conferences, expositions, cultural events, and social meetings. There is a souvenir shop and a snack bar situated on the smaller second floor. Even from this level, it is very possible that an excellent view of Paris can be seen without having to go to the pinnacle.
