One of the places I would throw everything away just to get a chance to visit is France.
I can only imagine how wonderful it would be to step foot in the country that prides itself on romance and passion and style and fashion.
However, those things wouldn’t be the reason why I want to go there.
Yes, yes..it’s the “City of Love” and the Fashion Capital of the world…but there’s a side of France that I want to explore. A more historical and stimulating side that goes beyond the romanticizing of rom-com movies and Woman’s literature.
Everyone knows that France is the perfect place if you are looking a little
excitement and passion in your life.
But if there is one place that I am extremely excited about…the place that would be a million times better than kissing a hot French person with… is the Chateau de Versailles or, to roughly translate it in English,
the Palace of Versailles.
Where do I even begin…“how do I love thee? Let me count the ways”
Of course, the fact that I have never been in the place makes it weird how
much I adore it.
But…come on! How can you not love it?
I mean, just looking at a picture makes your heart beat fast!
The Palace of Versailles is just one of the most popular tour spot in France and judging how magnificent it is, I’m not really surprise. I swear there will never be any dull moments in the palace.
The Palace of Versailles just screams splendor everywhere you turn.
The eminent palace is beautifully decorated with luxurious gold brushed furniture, beautifully quilted four-poster beds and verdant lawns that stretches as far as the eye could see.
You won’t believe just how huge the place is and there is no denying that The Palace of Versailles is one of the most beautiful palaces in the world.
With its array of beautiful art works and elaborate design, this place is nothing less than beautiful.
The Palace of Versailles is just one of the beautiful
architectural masterpieces that Paris is famous for.
But The Palace of Versailles is more than just a beautiful palace
where tourist can take pictures of.
Because of my obsession regarding the place…I looked up every information I could find about the subject and I realized that behind the glorious and magnificent architecture and the beautiful decorative approach lies a History that is the complete opposite of the splendor that most people see.
I learned that before the French Revolution, around the years 1789 to 1799, the upper class men of Paris and the French monarchy lived a life of absolute luxury, while the poor people of the
country experience the hardships
I have to say that nothing much has changed since the same
thing is happening during our own time.
I found out that the rich completely ignored the poor while they suffer
living in filth and going for days even weeks without anything to eat. During the reign of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI, the country has experienced a
crisis where all workers of the country couldn’t even afford a single piece of bread.
Though to tourists, the palace is just another stop to a wonderful vacation in a foreign country, to the people who live in Paris and whose families
lived the history of the palace, The Palace of Versailles was built to signify the power and splendor of King Louis XIV but it also represents the huge
line that separates the rich people of France and the poor people of France.
This just goes to show that behind every thing…there is a story waiting to be told.
But in spite of it’s dark past…the Palace still holds an air of beauty and elegance to it that is reflected in the magnificent art works and brilliant
Truly, one of my biggest dreams is to experience the grandeur and
magnificence of The Palace of Versailles.
Hidden among the buzzing of the modern world, this wonderful and majestic
European castle that resides the outskirts of Paris is a perfectly preserved
example of the architectural brilliance of Paris, France.
There is a certain magic that exists in the presence of
The Palace of Versailles and someday...I know I will experience that magic.
