Palace of Versailles

Paris, VersaillesVersailles. It is a place where you not only enjoy the works of art adorning the Palace of Versailles, but also wander through the alleys of the park, sit by the fountains, enjoy the boat ride on the pond, admire the sculptures and flowerbeds. Tourists can discover the numerous architectural details of the Palace for hours.
King Louis XIV enlarged a hunting lodge in brick and stone into a royal palace. After the work was successfully advanced he proclaimed Versailles as his principal residence and the governmental center of France.Panorama, Palace of Versailles, Main Entrance

  1. So very beautiful, fantastic colours! Very interesting too, you just made me curious of Versailles. Definitely a place to put on my “want to go to” list.
    Thank you!

    • It is definitely better to visit it off tourist season, but nobody can guaranty the weather. Versailles is beautiful from inside and outside. Park and fountains are awesome. Unlike Louvre here you do not feel crowd as terrible.

  2. I like the light colours and stile in your pictures, Alexander. The first picture could be from a competition in architecture skills , the one that wins 😉 🙂
