Photographer's Note

Last year in 20 sept. I was in Paris.
This is the Cite Metro Station.
It has a nice ambiance inside the station.

Paris Metro:-

Evidence of plans to build the mιtropolitain (or the Nιcropolitain, as it was dubbed by one wit) existed as early as 1845, though the first line was not completed until July 19, 1900. (Line 1, as it is still called, ran from Porte de Vincennes to Porte Maillot; it has since been extended — from Chβteau de Vincennes to La Dιfense.) Following the construction of the Eiffel Tower by eleven years, this elegant transportation system stole the show, and remains to this day a model of efficient public transportation.

While the engineer Fulgence Bienvenόe was in charge of construction, architect Hector Guimard is credited for the charming Art Nouveau entrances. The system boasts 211 km (131 miles) of track and 14 lines, shuttling 3500 cars on a precise schedule between 380 stations (not including RER stations), 87 of these offering connections between lines. It is said that every building in Paris is within 500 meters (3/10 mile) of a mιtro station. Roughly 6 million people per day patronize the mιtro, which employs over 15,000.
