The Eiffel Tower was designed for the Paris exhibition, which was held in 1889. The aim was that the tower is a symbol and main attraction of the exhibition. Maintenance of world exhibitions is lifted by one building that became a symbol of the exhibition. The Eiffel Tower was built of beautiful grid iron pillars, and its height is 320 meters.

In the tower, there are three plateaus, which can be reached by elevator. Spiral stairs lead to a further top of the tower, where there is a scientific laboratory. In the laboratory, scientists study temperature, air currents, clouds, wind and precipitation.

The Eiffel Tower can be seen from almost every part of Paris, and as a tourist attraction is almost unsurpassed. It is located in a very nice part of town, and while the visitor climbs the elevator, in front of their eyes there is a panorama of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

The tower was created by French engineer Alexander Eiffel, builder of many extraordinary bridges across France and the world. Eiffel, for example, built an observatory with a movable dome in Nice, France, and also the construction of the Statue of Liberty which is located at the entrance to the New York harbor. Eiffel is the inventor of movable bridges, but also the first designer who has studied the effect of air currents on the aircraft, using aircraft models in wind tunnel.
