The Louvre Museum was established in 1793 in Paris and since then it has become the largest art museum and historic monument in the world. It holds 38,000 objects from prehistory to the 21st century at an area of 72,735 square meters. One of the most famous landmarks of the museum is the painting of Mona Lisa, which is visited by millions of people each year. The building’s architecture is memorable and unique and it is a sighting on its own for those who occupy themselves with this area of expertise.
Many walls and roofs are covered entirely with paintings.
