I went to visit Louvre Museum at morning. When I reached in front of the museum it was a huge line. I thought it will take me to reach to enter museum nearly two hours. Few step after when I was in queue I saw a poster, that poster was written that 30 minutes will take from here to ticket office approximately,  So half an hour after I reached to ticket office, entrance fees is 10 euro. I bought a ticket and asked that guy who is selling ticket ‘which way will take me to see the museum very easyly’. He answered me if I will go to 1st,second floor there has 1. French paintings,2. French drawings, 3.German, Flemish, Dutch, Belgium, Russian, Swiss and Scandinavian paintings and Temporary exhibition halls, where I saw paintings in temporary exhibition halls, where I saw those great paintings like (A) The Lacemaker by J. Vermeer,(B) self-Portrait of A. Durer,(C). Gabrielle d’Estrees and Her Sister, (D).The Virgin of Chancellor Rolin J. van Eyck, (E) The Card-Sharper G. de La Tour (F) The Turkish Bath J.-A.-D. lngres.

Then I went to first floor where has 1.Decorative arts,2. Egyptian antiquities,3. Greek Etruscan and Roman Antiquities, 4.Print and Drawings 5.Temporary exhibition halls. In front of the entrance was no (C) The Winged Victory of Samothrace and a huge crowd to see it. Room (A). where I saw the famous painting Napoleon 111 Appartments. Room(B) one of the most famous painting Seated Scribe. Number (D) The consecration of the Emperor Napoleon 1, J.L David. And when I enter(E) number room I couldn’t understand why so much people fighting to see one painting, 200-300 people together want to see 60 cm by 60 cm one painting. I was fighting with them to reach to see what was happening there. And ultimately I astonished that it was a great painting by Leonardo de Vinci called Mona Lisa. Few minutes I was just looking that painting and very very happy.





Then I let people come to take my place, that painting really remain in my heart and continue my visit next hall number(F) where I found another one great painting, The Wedding Feast at Cana, Veronese.

Then come downstairs to ground floor,  where has one sculpture Near Eastern Antiquities Greek, Etruscan and Roman Antiquities, Arts of Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas, there were great sculptures which really touched me, (A)Code of Hammurabi,(B) Colossal Statue of Ramesses II, (C)Aphrodite Known as the ” Venus de Milo”,(D) Psyche and Cupid A.

One great day in my life with happiness, couple of hours that sunny day hope i will never forget in my life! till can close my eyes and see those great painter and there painting like a statue in front of my eyes , thousand time thank You for your creation’, It is a great mark that you gave us and that’s why You are forever in our inspiration!’
