The Eiffel Tower, seen here from the Alma bridge, is a wrought-iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars in Paris, France. It is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.
Constructed from 1887 to 1889 as the entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair, it was initially criticised by some of France’s leading artists and intellectuals for its design, but it has become a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognisable structures in the world.
The Eiffel Tower is here accompanied of the Orthodox Cathedral of Paris whose full name is The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity. It is an Orthodox cathedral of Byzantine and Russian architectural styles, surmounted by five traditional bulbous bell towers in composite material covered with matt gold, and an Orthodox cross.
