Paris: Louvre Museum

17 Aug

Louvre museum is one of the must visit places in Paris and considered the most visited one in the world. I have been to museums before but surely not like this one, my first reaction was “ITS HUGE!”, once you get inside, its like a maze, a very artistic one though.

The Louvre is originally was a fortress that was built in the late 12th century and started extending by time and actually there’s a section inside the museum just to show you how it started and how is it right now. What amazed me was the whole structure, it’s just very hard to believe that all this art was made long LONG time ago, the details are just fascinating.

Once you are in, you have many sections to choose from, you might get lost if you are looking for something specific, but it’s definitely was fun. The place was kinda busy, there was a long line at the gate, but within 15 minutes we were in. I tried to see everything i could put my eyes on, you will walk walk and walk, but don’t worry there are many places to rest and have some snacks.

All I can say is that am very much into arts, but if you really into paintings, you will definitely spend a whole day inside the Louvre admiring all the paintings and how amazing they look. Ofcourse most of the people were looking for the famous Monalisa..and i was kinda disappointed to find a small painting between huge ones and i just didn’t get the feeling of wowness!

Anyway, ill leave you with more pictures now, enjoy :)

      I think you mean “you had to wait along time at the gate” and no, the line was so long, but within 15 minutes we were in :)

    Great photos! I visited the Louvre about 3 years ago and was amazed by the many paintings and the size of the place. I didn’t see even half of the museum. Surely, it would take a couple of days to really do the place right. Especially with all that wonderful artwork to take your time with!
