The Royal Palace of Monaco on the edge of a cliff
The Principality of Monaco (Principauté de Monaco), referred to as Monaco (Monaco). Speaking of this country, perhaps the first person to come to mind is the majestic Princess Grace Kelly (Grace Kelly). Some people often confuse it with Morocco, a North African country.
The Palaisprincier de Monaco (Palaisprincier de Monaco), built in the 13th century, is located on the edge of a cliff and is the seat of the Monaco government. Princess Grace, who brought glory and legend to Monaco, once lived here. Today's Royal Palace of Monaco is half of the royal family's private residences and offices, and the other half is a museum. I have seen the magnificent palace buildings of other European countries. The pale yellow palace of Monaco does not feel luxurious and magnificent, because the palace with its unique location was originally a military fortress and served for military purposes until the 17th century. The forts cast in the Louis XIV period are displayed around the Palace Square, which seems to be a silent account of history. Standing on the northeast side of the square, you can enjoy the scenery of Monte Carlo Port. Every day at 11:55 noon, there is a changing of guard ceremony in the square. The guards with focused and serious expressions performed a series of ritual actions in an orderly manner in the marches played by the band, accompanied by the rhythmic slogans of the captain of the guards. This is one of the items that tourists love to watch when visiting Monaco.
The luxurious Grand Casino of Monte Carlo
As one of the four largest casinos in the world, the Casino de Monte-carlo (Casino de Monte-carlo) is a landmark of the Principality of Monaco. It has a history of more than 100 years. Louis Charles Garnier), the world-famous Opéra de Paris (Opéra de Paris, also known as Opéra Garnier) is also his work. The "trench" of Monaco can be seen here. The whole building is extremely luxurious like a palace, beautiful reliefs and portraits are scattered in various game halls, gorgeous and bright crystal lights make the hall bright as daylight, and every corner is meticulously carved. A dazzling array of luxury shops, luxury hotels, top hotel clubs...the luxury cars at the entrance of the casino are also a dazzling sight. In this situation, the cognition of "wealthy" has been completely refreshed. If you don't have the arrogance and confidence to spend a lot of money, think twice carefully before going to the gambling game. According to local laws in Monaco, nationals are prohibited from entering Monte Carlo for gambling, but tourists are welcome. Ordinary tourists over 21 years of age can buy tickets to enter the casino, but they must dress neatly, and they need to wear formal attire at night.
The world-famous Oceanographic Museum of Monaco
The Monaco Oceanographic Museum (Musée Océanographique de Monaco), opened in 1910, is the world's first oceanographic museum. The museum with the back of the mountain facing the sea, the front of the gate and above the lintel are carved with images of mermaid princesses, sea gods, sea animals and turtles. From decoration to arrangement, every scene touches the heart to remind people of the wonderful ocean world. The Oceanographic Museum benefited from the founder of the sea, Prince Albert I of Monaco, who used the large amount of income derived from the franchise to open a casino for marine scientific research. The prince devoted most of his life to marine research, and was therefore known as the founder of marine science. The museum and the basement have 5 floors. It has the richest marine collection in the world. There are more than 6000 kinds of marine life for visitors to enjoy, from the aquarium to the series of natural history exhibits, from the shark hall to the turtle island on the panoramic terrace. This rich museum provides the world with a unique opportunity to learn how to recognize, love and protect the ocean. This unique experience not only satisfies tourists' curiosity about the mysterious ocean, but also the rich ocean knowledge that draws people's attention to the issue of the ocean. The protection of natural ecological creatures is closely related to each of us. The individual is a drop of water in the ocean, and the ocean is made up of every drop of water.
The "Pearl in F1 Crown" Monaco Circuit
Circute de Monaco (Circute de Monaco), also known as Monte Carlo. I think racing fans should already be familiar with this track, which enjoys the reputation of "the crown jewel of F1". This street-shaped circuit, which is surrounded by Monte Carlo and Condamin districts, is one of the four most famous circuits in the world. It is as famous as Indianapolis in the United States, Le Mans in France and Newburgh Green in Germany. Monte Carlo is also the shortest track in F1, and is especially famous for having the slowest corners and a tunnel in F1. Because of its combination with the street, the track is very narrow and the difficulty is the most difficult in the world. Driver Nelson Piquet once said: “Driving an F1 car on the Monte Carlo circuit is as difficult as driving a helicopter in the living room. A small mistake may cause the car to crash into the guardrail and stop work early.” In this way, winning at the most challenging circuit in Monte Carlo is also a strong proof of the skills of the racers. On this short track, countless brilliance and legends have been born. What is committed to moving forward in the limited is the eternal desire to transcend life.
