Many Parisians and tourists have already noted that a beacon on the top of the Eiffel Tower was out of order for some time.

Crisises or bad weather… Paris remains Paris – one of the most popular touristic destinations for millions of people around the world! Only in the first six months of this year, Paris had received foreign tourists by 14.9 percent more than in the first half-year of 2016, and the total number of visitors of the city grew by 10.2 percent. This data is published by the official Ille-de-France department on tourism.
Air temperature in Paris is really summer so there is nothing surprising in that city dwellers and guests of the capital want to refresh themselves and swim. Of course, going to Paris, we realize this city does not belong to the number of water resorts – its charm is based on absolutely different things. But, nevertheless, having the opportunity to plunge into the cool water (without buying a ticket for a special pool) is always a good moment when we have a heat on the streets.
