About the Eiffel Tower
Built by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World’s Fair, Eiffel Tower became the world’s tallest man-made structure until the Chrysler Building in New York was finished in 1930. Although it is one of the world’s most visited tourist attractions now, it was not accepted well by the French at the time. Also, it was supposed to be taken down after 20 years since it was meant to be only a temporary exhibit. Fortunately, Gustave Eiffel convinced the government to keep the construction and use it as a radiotelegraph station. There are 1,665 steps leading to the top, but you can take the stairs only to the second floor. A lift takes you to the top floor. Originally, only the second floor was open to the public, but now all three levels are accessible and boast award-winning restaurants. In the evening, Eiffel Tower is illuminated with 20,000 light bulbs.
