Paris Eiffel Tower belongs on every must-see list is out of the question. What for us is one of the top sights of Paris means much more to the French – it is the national symbol of the country. Built by Gustave Eiffel to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution, it is now considered the tallest building in the French capital with a height of 324 metres. Nearly 7 million people travel to Paris every year to admire this magnificent building, making it one of the most visited landmarks in the world. Their way leads them to the 7th arrondissement of the city centre, to the northwestern end of the Champ de Mars, near the bank of the Seine. Even if only the sight of this impressive building is enough to feel connected to the history of France, in my opinion it is still important to take a closer look at the construction of the landmark.
The construction of the Eiffel Tower took no less than 2 years. While on January 26th, 1887, the foundations were laid and only half a year later, the tower feet were erected, the completion and the following opening took place only on March 31st, 1889. Of course, the opening was also duly celebrated: The French flag was hoisted personally by Gustav Eiffel – who thus not only created the landmark of Paris, but also lent his name to the Eiffel Tower. Today, the Eiffel Tower is an essential part of French culture and history, listed as a “monument historique” and part of the list of historical milestones in engineering.

The three Giza pyramids must have made an unreal impression on the observer – abstract geometric symbols stood at the edge of the desert, huge bright white triangles visible from afar. The Giza pyramids with the Cheops pyramid as the largest pyramid of all are the only still existing wonder of the ancient world. Every theory of pyramid construction must be measured against it. Only those who pass this test can speak of a functioning pyramid construction method. The Cheops pyramid is the measure of all things in this area, what works here must also work with the other pyramids!

Love beyond death – a message that fascinates the whole world with its architectural beauty: The Taj Mahal is India’s landmark. The snow-white building with its round domes, impressive decorations and spacious gardens attracts millions of tourists from all over the world every year. Its beauty and uniqueness have made it one of the world’s seven new wonders. Couples visit this place in India to experience eternal love, but the dramatic story of the Taj Mahal shows that immortal love can be dangerous.
Taj Mahal literally means “Crown Palace”. Jahan wanted it to be the most beautiful building of all time – more magnificent than all known wonders of the world. The powerful ruler wanted to build a home for eternity for his favourite wife Mumtaz Mahal, who died at the birth of her 14th child.
Mumtaz Mahal means “beloved jewel of the palace”. So the Taj Mahal is the palace where Jahan buried his beloved jewel. The shining white building is to remind for all times of the love of the two.
Shah Jahan brought the best master craftsmen from all over South and Central Asia – a total of over 20,000 people. And more than 1,000 elephants brought Asia’s finest building materials: marble, sandstone and 28 different types of precious stones.
After 18 years of construction, the magnificent Islamic mausoleum was completed in 1648. There is, however, another source according to which the Taj Mahal already stood in 1644. And the Indian government officially speaks of 1654 as the year of completion. But actually the exact date does not play a big role.
