Happy Birthday, The Eiffel Tower!

One and only, The Eiffel Tower is celebrating its 125 birthday today! Full of sparkles, lights and timeless magnitude, it is one of the most recognizable monuments in the world.

French engineer Gustav Eiffel’s work was erected for 1889 World’s Fair. Initially, the 323-metre-high structure was to be dismantled in 1909, however, the city decided to keep it regardless of the early criticism from the French art community of that time. Today, we can’t imagine Paris without its iconic tower.
