40 things to doin Paris
The main symbol of Paris, which attracts all the travelers of the world, the steel tower, which became the hallmark of the City of Lights.
Eiffel Tower, Paris
If to ask any person about the main architectural sight of France everyone without any exception will name the Eiffel Tower. Wherever it is, everyone knows, not to notice the 300-meter world-famous building is almost impossible.

Creation History
The steel tower in the heart of Paris is named after its creator Gustav Eiffel, although the first author of the sketch of the high-rise tower was Maurice Keschlen. But only after the rework of Emil Nugyo the project took on the form as we see it nowadays.

"300-meter tower" (as she was called by the creator) was built in 1889. Construction lasted for two years, two months and five days. All the beams were fastened with millions of rivets, and should not weigh more than 3 tons, because otherwise it would not be possible to raise them to a higher altitude. First, the lifting was carried out with the help of high cranes, and when the design surpassed them in height — the work was shifted to mobile cranes constructed for this purpose.

It was very difficult to realize the idea of ​​ascent to the top of the tower with help of an elevator. It was decided how many meters the first lift would go up, after that, at an altitude of 175 meters, passengers would need to change seats to the next one.

An interesting fact is that in 1940 Hitler wished to climb to the impregnable tower, but the grand construction refused — the elevator stopped working, and the Fuhrer never managed to conquer the "patriotic Parisian". German engineers tried to repair the elevator for 4 years, but they could not. However, in 1944 lifts again mysteriously begone to work. But since they could not work in the cold season, in 1983 they were replaced with electric elevators of the brand "Otis".

Height of the Eiffel Tower
Until 2010, the height of the tower was 300.65 meters above ground level, now the height with a new antenna is 324 meters. Until 1930, it was the tallest building in the world, almost twice as high as the famous pyramid of Cheops or the Ulm Cathedral. Only when the Chrysler Building was built in New York, surpassed her in height.

"Iron Lady" color
Today we see a tower in brown, but it's been painted only for the last decade, there is even an officially patented "brown-eiffel" color. To avoid corrosion, the tower should be painted every 7 years, so she managed to try on the colors from red-brown to bright yellow.

Radiance of the Eiffel Tower
Since the opening day, the steel beauty has been lit by 10 thousand gas lamps and 2 floodlights at the top. Since that time, the tower has never plunged into darkness, especially at night. In 1900, gas lamps were replaced by electric lamps, and in the new millennium it shone with 20,000 light bulbs. The view was so magnificent that over the course of many years every hour for 10 minutes you can see a magnificent light show, which you can enjoy from almost anywhere in the city, absolutely free.
