The Eiffel tower is a very famous landmark of the famous skyline of Paris and it was built in 1889 as an attraction for the World Exposition.

At the end of therontais, the Eiffel tower is reachable only by elevator. It was constructed at a height of entertments park and was named after its engineer designer Gustave Eiffel.

Gustave Eiffel was the only person allowed to handle the tower.

The Eiffel Tower is 300 meters high and tower has a regular solution in its monthly puzzles. Each small segment of the tower was built in a different color, so as to identify it easily among the huge wall of the tower. When the tower was being built, an observation platform was built just below the middle of the tower. This platform was named Orientation Centre, it was made to allow large numbers of people to watch the construction process of the tower and used as an example many years later, when the tower was nearing completion.

Eiffel Tower – a tourist destination

The Eiffel Tower was inaugurated in 1889, just a few months after the completion of the six-level foundation. The tower was then raised on the foundations until its completion in the spring of 1889. Just a few months after the completion of the tower, the foundation of the tower was found to be ready to suffer an even greater disaster.

On May 28, 1889, a powerful earthquake caused a collapse in the foundation of the tower. This caused the elevator to tip, causing the tower to come down. The top of the second level washer was thrown into the air and several people were killed. The tower then went down on its other side.

Several things happened that day that day that can still be today described as a miracle. The ground started to shake, buildings toppled, huge fires broke out in the interior, the horses left in the stable were trampled. The tower started to collapse right beside the entrance to the 1889 World Exposition that was about to open.

Construction of the snakelike structure

The event that shook the tower was the fermentation of the Carnaval de Duelling in the Vieux Museum. The Duelling ring was to be opened the next day, May 29, at 10 am. This is what we got. The Carnaval de Duelling celebration was, in fact, the last event of its kind in Paris.

The next day, May 29, 2004, began like the previous one, with the construction of the snakelike structure of the trailing arm on the outside of the tower.

The Eiffel Tower was inaugurated on May 7, 1894. It was built by Georges-Eiffel. Due to its popularity, the Eiffel Tower waseither rented out, or in use by various airlines, until the tower was repaired in 2003.

For the next few years, the Eiffel Tower was used as a means of artistic welcome. It has been built in a different style , giving it a very different appearance.
