The Louvre (7/11)

A renowned place of great beauty and a source of presumed envy from other European leaders across the continent, the Louvre Palace was the seat of French monarchistic power until the reign of the great King Charles XIV when he moved to Versailles. Covering 210,000 square metres, it is so big that the contemporary building is split into the ‘old’ and ‘new’ Louvre. It is now one of the most famous art galleries in the entire world, attracting millions of visitors every year.
