En: Since i found out we were moving to France ,i knew i wanted to visit The Palace of Versailles. The night before the big visit i barely slept. You know that felling when you are almost in the place you wanted to see the most and you have butterflies in your stomach?

             In 1661 , Ludovic the XIV decided to move out of Paris and so, on Versailles domain , one of the most luxurious and powerful Palace was built ,here rested the supreme royal chateau. First we took the “Luxury Road” , where with each step we took we were reminded of the power and wealth of the “Sun King”: The Royal Apartments decorated with marble and gold , the beautiful Mirror Room with those huge 17 mirrors ( in that time mirrors were extremely expensive) , silver furniture, golden chandeliers ,damask curtains.

It took 40 years for the gardens to look the way they look now because Ludovic the XIV considered that the gardens were as important as the Palace.

 

             The Gardens of Versailles have 200.000 trees , hundreds of statues ,1700 fountains and pools. In this dreamy natural space over 210.000 flowers are planted each year. It’s a work of art , a green universe , it’s a piece of heaven on Earth …

Ro: Din momentul in care am stiut ca ne mutam in Franta mi-am dorit sa vizitez Palatul Versailles. Cu o noapte inainte de mult asteptata vizita abia am reusit sa inchid un ochi.Stiti senzatia aia de fluturi in stomac cand aproape, aproape ai ajuns la locul mult visat?

2   In anul 1661, Ludovic al XIV -a s-a hotarat sa se mute inafara Parisului si astfel , pe domeniul de la Versailles , unul din cele mai maiestuoase palate construite vreodata, aici a luat nastere resedinta regala suprema. Intai am luat “drumul luxului” : Apartamente Regale decorate cu marmura si aur, minunata Sala a Oglinzilor cu ale ei 17 oglinzi imense( de stiut ca pe acea vreme oglinzile erau incredibil de scumpe), mobilier din argint, candelabre aurite , draperii din damasc.

 

Dar nimic nu ne-a pregatit pt ceea ce a urmat, nici faptul ca din Sala Oglizilor se vedea putin din gradina. In momentul in care am pasit in curte ne-a intampinat o priveliste care taie respiratia. Gradinile se intind pe aproximativ 815 hectare , iar pt a ajunge la forma finala a durat 40 de ani. Ludovic al XIV-a a considerat ca aspectul gradinilor sale este la fel de important ca si palatul. Aceste gradini cuprind peste 200.000 de arbori, cateva sute de statui, 1700 de bazine si fantani . In acest spatiu natural de vis se planteaza anual peste 210.000 de flori. O opera de arta vie in poate cel mai minunat loc de vizitat in Franta, un univers verde, un colt de rai!

Enjoy and stay chic…
