To the Louvre

There is much to be said about Paris, and especially about the Louvre. Napoleon’s ideals about conquering Europe may fall under debate, but the impressive feat that is the Louvre will not. I have been to many cities and seen many museums, but none like this.

Aside from the fact that you can stand in front of world-famous pieces like the Venus de Milo, the Winged Victory of Samothrace and of course the Mona Lisa, you have to realise that the Louvre itself is a work of art, an architectural wonder in ever sense with intricacies and embelishments that depict the true nature of its contents. You’ll find no traces of modernism here, everything is ornate, everything is artistic no expense is spared in making the experience a humbling one.

I could spend years in this place.
