Description: Le Grand Palais de Paris:
The greatest glass-and-steel art nouveau exhibition hall in the world.

The stunning Grand Palais is set to reopen after major structural repairs and the recent renovations lasted 12 years.

With its giant glass cupola that stands out over the low Paris skyline, the Grand Palais is one of the City of Light's most visible landmarks, located between the elegant Champs-Elysees Avenue and the River Seine.

Built for the 1900 World's Fair (just as the Eiffel tower was), the Grand Palais soon showed signs of structural vulnerability. A 1910 flood of the Seine damaged the foundations, and subsequent changes in Paris' water table further undermined stability. In 1993, a glass panel fell 148 feet from the dome. Although no one was injured, authorities had to close the central hall.
