Undoubtedly, the Eiffel Tower in central Paris is the most important metal construction of the nineteenth century. Tower foundation was made in 1887 by Gustave Eiffel, who said that the tower is a monument in honor of the French Revolution of 1789, which opened the way "a century of industry and technology."
Initially, the Eiffel Tower was 300.5 meters, but after placing a television antenna, its height is 320.75 meters. Weight, of 9700 tons, was reduced after the renovation, with 1340 tons. Approximately 5 million tourists visit the tower each year, which became the emblem of Paris.
