Château de Versailles


Château de Versailles is perfect for a spring day trip. It is only a 40 minutes train drive away from the heart of Paris (20 km). Your visit to Paris would be incomplete without wandering around at this gorgeous palace!


In the 17th century, Versailles was transformed into the official residence of the king. Louis XIV built a grandiose palace. His purpose was to have a big comfortable residence in the country and to move the court from Paris to Versailles to have better control. Therefore, Château de Versailles is not only famous as a building but as a symbol of the system of absolute monarchy. Additionally, Louis XIV wanted to leave something glamorous to the next generations, something that will show his greatness and power.




Louis XIV was building Versailles almost all his life. He never saw Versailles ready because he had always new ideas for building or rebuilding, so Versailles was under construction till his death. Every corner and every smallest part of the palace and of the garden was build under his dearest care. The royal family and the court were forced to leave Versailles in 1789 after the first days of the French Revolution.

  16. I absolutely love Versailles! I visited it once in october, when it was still very cold. I'm now in Paris until July, and when it's warmer (probably in June), my sister will visit me here and we'll both go to Versailles to have a photoshoot there! I can't wait for that. Have a nice weekend and enjoy your easter! X
