  • After the first three pictures I went to the exit. Nothing artistic or imressive in the paintings. It's only about Napoleons victories.

  • While the Hall of Mirrors is the most famous room in the Versailles palace, this one is just as amazing and not to be missed. It's one of the longest, if not the longest one with huge paintings...

  • The best gallery that i have ever been in my life. Trough this huge room the France histary is narrated by huge paints from 500 B.C. until the 1800 B.C. It is more large than the mirror gallery and according to me it is more beatifull and well made!
  • Very beautiful inside. A lot of magnificent paintings and luxury. Very opulent.
