Eiffel Tower - THE IRON LADY


The Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris, named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.


Erected in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair, it has become both a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world.


The tower is the tallest structure in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world; 7.1 million people ascended it in 2011. The tower received its 250 millionth visitor in 2010.


The tower stands 324 metres tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building.


The tower has three levels for visitors. Tickets can be purchased to ascend, by stairs or lift, to the first and second levels. The walk from ground level to the first level is over 300 steps, as is the walk from the first to the second level.


The third and highest level is accessible only by lift - stairs exist but they are not usually open for public use. Both the first and second levels feature restaurants.


The tower has become the most prominent symbol of both Paris and France, often in the establishing shot of films set in the city. As a global landmark, the Eiffel Tower is featured in media including films, video games, and television shows. (Wikipedia)









Torre de Belém – Portugal


Belém Tower (in Portuguese Torre de Belém) is a fortified tower located in the civil parish of Santa Maria de Belém in the municipality of Lisbon, Portugal.


The tower was commissioned by King John II to be part of a defense system at the mouth of the Tagus River and a ceremonial gateway to Lisbon.


It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site (along with the nearby Jerónimos Monastery) because of the significant role it played in the Portuguese maritime discoveries of the era of the Age of Discoveries.


The tower was built in the early 16th century and is a prominent example of the Portuguese Manueline style, but it also incorporates hints of other architectural styles. The structure was built from lioz limestone and is composed of a bastion and the 30 meter, four story tower.


It has incorrectly been stated that the tower was built in the middle of the Tagus and now sits near the shore because the river was redirected after the 1755 Lisbon earthquake.


In fact, the tower was built on a small island in the Tagus River near the Lisbon shore.

Prague zoo in Prague

Prague Zoo is the most visited zoological garden in the Czech Republic. Annual visitor numbers are around 1.3 million. Prague Zoo is a few kilometres outside the city centre, but fairly easy to get to by public transport.  
There are 5000 animals and 650 species at the zoo, well organised over 69 hectares. 

 
The grounds stretch from a lush river valley up a steep, rocky escarpment to rolling meadows. The views at the summit are spectacular. Over the course of 4 or 5 hours you should be able to cover most areas. Animals range from penguins, sea lions, lions, tigers and elephants to Markhor and Ibex - superbly held in mountain enclosures. Giraffes also have a huge valley to roam through. The Prague zoo keeps Przewalski’s horse,the tiger cat, the Cuban boa, the Cuban ground iguana, the Malaysian giant turtles and giant Asian pond turtles, the European ground squirrel, the Common barn owl and the European bison.
Prague Zoo is well worth a visit, not just for the animals, but also for the pleasant countryside.In the studbooks there are accurately registered all the animals of the particular species that are being bred in human care.
