Gorgeous and interesting buildings to visit. Collections in the Louvre Museum was absolutely superb! What a pleasure to see amazing art treasures in the world. Louvre is stunning both inside and out. It is good for art lovers. History of humanity is well showcased here. Could learn many things from there. It is a nice place for family and couples to have some quality time. Sheikh Zayed Mosque is place to go if you want some peaceful time. Words struggle to describe the beauty of the mosque. Every angle of the mosque is just bewitching. I like to give 5 star because of its exceptional charm and serene ambience. I want to tell you guys you make a visit here and I think you will enjoy it.
