For last century Paris has been visited by hundreds thousands travellers from different corners of our planet, and this tourist stream does not become less year after year. And here we can ask: why?

Paris is an ancient city, and it has quite a lot of interesting beautiful buildings of different historical periods.

“Why do people paint? Because everyone in comparison with great Velazquez looks scammer and pretender?” A similar phrase was heard in the conversation of the famous French painter Edouard Manet and poet Charles Pierre Baudelaire.
