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

    Thank you for the tour, Alexander. I haven’t yet gone to Versailles. I admit I’m a little intimidated by the crowds.

    • 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.

  9. 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 😉 🙂

      • Thank you, Hanna. I appreciate your kind comment. I am not professional and not looking for competition. The most valuable things for me are all the comments, likes and visits of all of my dear friends, followers, and occasional visitors. You inspire me to take pictures and share with all of you.
        Thank you again.
        Have a nice weekend! 🙂
