The legendary Palace of Versailles has long been not just one of the most visited sights of Paris. This name in the minds of people all over the world is strongly associated with luxury, style and impeccable taste. Ordinary tourists, world celebrities, and business tycoons, accompanied by dazzling beauties of the Paris girls escorts class, and even representatives of monarchist families strive to get here.

History of

The architectural masterpiece of the era of absolutism owes its appearance to a famous historical figure - the French king Louis XIV. Once he saw the mansion of his own Minister of Finance Fouquet, the monarch literally lost peace. He ordered to build a palace in the desert area on the outskirts of then-Paris, surpassing the home of his own citizen in all respects.

The construction of a grand building, occupying a plot of 6 hectares, began in 1661 with an unprecedented scale. It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s funny that the “hero of the occasion” himself - the very minister Fuke - took the most direct part in financing the construction.

After 21 years, all work was completed and Versailles acquired the status of the main government residence. In addition to the palace complex, consisting of more than 3,500 premises for various purposes, a park was located on the adjacent territory, which contained all the latest trends in landscape design of the time.

Situation in our day

Huge spending on construction and luxurious life, which led the \"Sun King\", was one of the reasons for the fall of the monarchy, which happened after a hundred years. But today, the symbol of medieval luxury is a very significant item in replenishing the budget of the Fifth Republic. Many curious people from all over the world, rich people in the company of VIP escort ladies , famous people and celebrities annually leave here hundreds of millions of euros.

Today, more than 1,000 rooms are open to visitors. Among them, the most popular are:

• Mirror hall;

• Large and Small chambers;

• Enfilade of Battles;

• The Opera House.

The beauty of decoration, impressive engineering solutions, the wealth of materials, open spaces and the play of light really make an indelible impression. You can enjoy all this magnificence from April to October, on any day except Monday, from 9 to 18 o\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'clock.
