1. The Arc d’Triomphe was commissioned by Napoleon in honor of his victory at the Battle of Austerlitz.
2. He gave the order in 1806 but he has never seen the end result.
3. It’s located at Place Charles de Gaulle, the busiest square in Paris.
4. Under the Arc de Triomphe is an unknown soldier buried.
5. There is also a flame next to the grave of the unknown soldier. It’s an ever-burning fire, to commemorate all in the unknown soldiers who where killed during the first and second world war.
6. The Arc d’Triomphe is 50 meters high, 45 meters wide and 22 meters deep.
7. This one is my favorite fact – In 1919 a pilot named Charles Godefroy made some history and flew with his airplane underneath the Arc d’Triomphe! In 1981 a pilot named Alain Marchand copied the trick and he lost his pilot’s license. You think everyone was warned but for the last time, in 1991, a unknown pilot flew underneath the Arc d’Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. Little boys never grew up!
8. There is an elevator but it won’t go to the platform, there are still a few steps you have to make. The elevator is only available for disabled people, old people and pregnant women.
9. The Arc d’Triomphe has 284 steps and it feels like forever to walk all the way up!
10. The Arc d’Triomphe is the second-largest in the world, after the Triumphal Arch in Pyongyang in North Korea.
I was walking through the streets of Paris with Google Street View, until I ‘arrived’ at the Eiffel Tower. I looked up and saw this creation?! Somethings wrong here.. ;’) For the people who’ve never been to Paris.. the Eiffel Tower isn’t that weird!
I know that in strong winds, the upper part of the Eiffel Tower can move for 15 centimeters. But,I’m pretty sure that it doesn’t look like that. To refresh your brains: This is what the Eiffel Tower looks like!
Wow, that someone really lives there (I guess, maybe it’s a hotel or something?) But, just the thought that someone owns that building makes me a bit jealous. I have to find the owners so I can kick them out and make it my own place *evil laugh*. Alright Daniëlle, WAKE UP! That’s not gonna happen in a long, long, long time.. but hey, keep your dreams alive! So, I daydreamed a bit of what I would do if this was my own penthouse.. easy to answer! I would wave all day to the tourists on the Eiffel Tower. No lie and believe me, I waved a lot at my own mirror so, I won’t disappoint them with an inexperienced wave :) And after a fun day of waving and smiling, all my followers would be welcome for dinner during the sunset! Of course with champagne that tastes much better than the one on the 3rd floor of the Eiffel Tower, haha!
Use a bit of imagination, what would you do if this was your penthouse?!
