France is the most popularist and Paris capital of France is the heart of tour. So, in Paris, there are many famous cultural assets. Today, we introduce architectures of Paris to you. Now, let’s go!

First, when we think about Paris , Probably we would think of the Eiffel tower, which is a symbol of france. It indicates an art of architecture
That iss very grand and named after its architect, Eiffel,

Second, The Louvre is the greatest museum and also indicates art of architecture.
if you are In front of the Louvre, you would be fascinated.
the form of the Louvr is triangular and resembles a Pyramid.
There are many cultural assets, but they were plundered by French soldiers.
Even cultural properties of Korea have been there.

The Arc de triomphe was founded by Napoleon.
Its purpose is to celebrate those soldiers who fought for France, but Napoleon was dead so he couldn’t see its completion
Now it is one of the most populor sites

Next, palace of Versailles is one of the most luyxrious structures in the world.
It shows grandiosity, splendidness and ritziness to tourists.
When we talk about noble life of the Europe in King Gyonerdra’s absolute power, we cite Varseille palace.

Finally, the cathedral of Notre Dame is famous and is sritten about in the novel the Hunchback of Notre Dame. Like the novel, the gargoyles on the Cahtedral of Notre Dame are very impressive. And the soaring spire of the Cathedral seems to reach the sky.

Discussion questions.
1.In the Louvre, there are many cultural assets plundered by French soldiers. What do you think about the fact the Louvre possesses cultural assets of other countries?
2.In the palace of versailles, there weren’t any toilets, so people living in the versailles have to go to the garden and then in there people did their business. What do you think about the fact is that there weren’t any toilets?
3.The arc de triomphe is the symbol of imperialism. This means that the Arc de Triomphe can be painful countries that had been colonized by France. What do you think about that?
