France and the Palace of Versailles

France and the Palace of Versailles

The trip to France was remarkable. One day, everyone has found themselves dreaming of getting to know this country! When I went to Europe for the first time obviously France was included in my script.
As the theme for my first post about this trip I chose the beautiful Palace of Versailles.
When it comes to monuments and gardens, there is nothing in the world that surpasses those in France and I can say that this Palace is the most beautiful in the world.
To get there, you need to take the RER train that connects the French capital to the suburbs.
The Palace is close to the train station in the city of Versailles and we can walk there.
When I saw the entrance gate I was already dazzled, impossible not to be. It’s really beautiful, big and imposing. Indeed, this was the ultimate symbol of the French Monarchy.

The interior of the Palace with its beautiful details: a luxury!

The interior of the Palace is wonderful not only for the beautiful construction and its rich details, but also for the decoration. And what impressed me most was the grandeur: there are corridors, rooms, windows, doors and huge objects. It’s as if you were in a history book and transported to the Monarchy. During the visit we can learn about French history, we receive a headset and every room we enter we can find out what it represents and what it was intended for.
Really impressive are the “Grands appartements”, divine is little to describe!

The gardens need no introduction. I believe they are the most famous in the world and with good reason! They are huge and the end is lost on the horizon, I don’t think I can describe it through this post.
The main garden is beautifully designed and perfectly maintained. It still has beautiful lakes and monuments. You can’t get to know the whole garden by walking. You need to take a train to get to know it.

Beautiful lakes and sculptures, this place is perfect!

It is redundant to say that a visit to the Palace of Versailles is mandatory for anyone going to France, but the intention was to share with you this unique experience in my life: knowing France and being in a Palace that represented so much the history of a country. Above all, it’s about remembering school days and now understanding what history teachers used to say about the French Revolution!
