Louvre Pyramid is a symbol of Paris. It has been completed in 1989 by Chinese architect Ieoh Ming Pei and even though at the beginning the citizens of Paris considered it an audacious construction, too modern compared to the surrounding historical palace, it has soon became one of the most appreciated landmarks in Paris. And as you know, there is also an inverted pyramid, part of the Carrousel du Louvre shopping mall.

Old buildings in Pienza are decorated with colorful flowers :) And between 1st and 10th of May there is a flower and plant fair which is held every year. The central market in Pienza, Piazza Pio II is completely invaded by flowers and it looks simply amazing. This is indeed the "ideal city", as Pope Pius II wished to create. Because initially, Pienza was just a small village (called Corsignano) but Pope Pius II transformed it into a classical Renaissance ideal city. He did a great job! :)

Those narrow houses on the canals are so typical for Amsterdam! 17th century old renaissance buildings, with big narrow windows, they used to belong to rich merchants, lawyers or doctors. And because of the lack of space, the houses had less than 9 meters width. Now they are a symbol for Dutch architecture and it is extremely pleasant to take a walk on the canals and admire all these colorful houses!
