The next stop of our tour in 


 is the 


. This monument was originally constructed for World Expo 58, and it symbolizes the atomic age.
There are 9 spheres, and people can access 6 of them where exhibition halls are.
Spheres are connected with tubes, with corridors and escalators inside, and there is an elevator inside the middle tube. A restaurant and an observation deck are located in the top sphere. I wish I could get there!

 which exhibits models of the most famous buildings in Europe. I wish I could visit it!
Unfortunately, there's little time for everything with guided tours.
So we went further.
