Discover the Palace of Versailles

I was actually playing an RTS game, when I met a guy with a character name, “Legnakrad Le Versailles;” his last name actually caught my attention. I randomly asked him where did he derive that name from. He actually said, “I am a fan of this Japanese metal band named Versailles, which was originated from a manor house in Île-de-France region of France.” His statement alone piqued my interest, not with the band, but with the manor house. Why would they use a royal château as a name for their band?

Today, we’ll be exploring not the mainstream stuff about France. Let us see the beauty of this country house of nobility. Feed your brains; discover the Palace of Versailles!

Hall of Mirrors
Hall of Mirrors

If you want to discover the Palace of Versailles, then you shouldn’t miss the most famous room, also known as the Grande Galerie. A 75-meter-long ballroom with 17 huge mirrors on one side and, on the other, an equal number of arcaded windows looking out over the formal gardens.

This same room later witnessed one of the defining moments of 20th-century European history when the Treaty of Versailles, ending the First World War, was signed within its walls in June 1919.

Gardens of Versailles

A garden which actually took 40 years to complete. Europe’s quintessential royal residence was the principal home of French kings from Louis XIV to Louis XVI. One of the most special aspects of the gardens is the 50 fountains which act as focal points, enhancing the geometrical design.

The garden alone gives a pleasurable visit. This can be spent simply perusing paths and admiring fountains and flowers without setting foot inside the palace or Versailles’ other notable buildings.

Grand Trianon
Discover the Palace of Versailles-Grand Trianon

The incredible array of pink marble buildings was built in 1687 by the famous architect Mansart, as a tranquil getaway from court life for Louis XIV.  Setting the benchmark for Italianate garden conservatory design, the elegantly long and low palace of pink marble and porphyry features geometrically-ordered rows of columns and windows, topped by a balustrade roof.

While the Grand Trianon is open to the public, it is also an official residence of the French President.

Official Website

One of the best ways to learn several facts about the Palace of Versailles is through their official site. The site alone provides information categorized by The Palace, The Garden, The Grand Trianon, and Marie-Antoinette’s Estate.

An interactive map optimized for tablets and smartphones is accessible on the official site.

How to Get There

Versailles is some 10 miles (16 kilometers) from Paris, and is easily accessible by car (parking available), taxi, bus, or train. The RER C line links central Paris with the Versailles Rive Gauche station — five minutes from the palace on foot. Trains also run from Paris Montparnasse to Versailles Chantiers and from Paris Saint Lazare to Versailles Rive-Droite, each a ten-minute walk from the palace. The RATP bus 171 runs from Pont de Sèvres metro station to Versailles.

When to Visit

There’s no bad season to visit Versailles, but its extensive gardens are at their best in spring and summer. While the gardens and park remain accessible, the buildings of Versailles are closed on Mondays.

Japan 2012

Before getting directly to the one of the most visited destinations in Japan, let’s talk about Tokyo. The capital is actually the top tourist destination in the country.

Top 5 Foods in Sweden

Today, let’s talk about food. Have you been to Sweden? The country in between Norway and Finland, the most generous country in the world regarding aid to poor countries. It is the only nation where donations exceed 1% of the GDP. Enough of these brain-feeding facts about Sweden. Let us feed your tummies today with these cravings you shouldn’t miss in Sweden.

Just so you know, Swedish food is about more than just meatballs. There are so many tasty things here that I genuinely had a really hard time coming up with the list because as soon as I put one item down, I ended up thinking of two more that I like equally, or more so. However, after food-tasting and surveys about the most delicious Swedish foods of them all, here, we give you today the Top 5 Foods in Sweden!

1. Princesstårta
Top 5 Foods in Sweden-Princesstårta

First-timers and natives of Sweden had never stopped loving this color green marzipan dome cake: the famous cake of Sweden. So basically, it has layers of sponge cake, jam, and almond paste; to top that, it has plenty of whipped cream. If it sounds too sweet for you, then you are mistaken. The Princesstårta is not too sweet nor too filling, it is ‘just enough or right’.  Simply, it is delicious and always worth the try. This cake is mostly given in events as gifts to celebrants.

2. Västerbotten Cheese
Top 5 Foods in Sweden-Västerbotten Cheese

For your info, this is not just a cheese. Yes, it is a cheese – infamous at some places – but it’s the known cheese of Swedish people. If France was renowned to be the “Cheese capital of the world” for its soft cheeses, Sweden might not have that title but they have a rare and versatile cheese that you can use in all-around cooking, baking or whatnot. It is actually firm with a bitter taste like parmesan and yes, it’s made from cow’s milk. Those who have tried eating this are satisfied with just bread and the cheese alone.

3. Flying Jacob
Top 5 Foods in Sweden-Flying Jacob

Have you ever imagined mixing banana with chicken? Never heard of the recipe yet? Well, you should try Sweden’s Flying Jacob. It’s a chicken recipe which has banana as his partner. Just savour the idea of a chicken with soft and sweet bananas, crunchy and salty bacon pieces, plus nuts and creamy sauce. Travelers were even shocked that bananas can taste that delicately with chicken. That was merely the description of the Flying Jacob, it is still best if you’ll try it yourself. For a simplified recipe, click here.

4. Gravlax
Top 5 Foods in Sweden-Gravlax

Of course, who doesn’t love bacon? To love it more, try the Bacon of the North which was considered as Sweden’s Best Food. Well, it consists of raw salmon, cured in salt, sugar, and dill. To get an idea of the taste, it was said to be a cross between smoked salmon and sashimi. It’s beneficial in a way that is rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals in which the salmon itself is a good source of Vitamins B6,  B12, magnesium, and omega-3 which will promote joint health and aid in brain development, and will reduce cardiovascular health risks. Tasty and healthy!

5. Smörgåstårta
Top 5 Foods in Sweden-Smörgåstårta

When it comes to healthy food, then all you need is a cake. This is the cake that will not make you fat. Well, it is not literally a cake, it looks just like one though. But, this sandwich cake is basically a huge multi-layered sandwich, filled with paté, sliced meats, smoked salmon, shrimp, and then it’s covered in a good layer of something like crème fraîche and mayonnaise — decorated as above –and then served up in slices. I am still wondering why a list is showing that Smörgåstårta is part of the most terrible Swedish foods. I don’t think so.
