We spent a wonderful 3 days in Disneyland and Paris! We had little sleep time and many to visit Disneyland’s two parks – the Disney World and the Disneyland studios – ran on more than 30 attractions in the country of fairy tales, entertainment and discoveries. An impressive impression was made by the visit to the National Museum of Art d’Orsay in Paris, where the main composition is the work of famous Impressionists and post-impressionists. Seeing the work of Monet, Renoir Van Gogh and others, we still have the strength to explore the beautiful city of Paris with its glowing Eiffel Tower and the Cathedral of Our Lady of Paris. We have not forgotten to try traditional dishes – French onion soup and snails. Time flew extremely fast, but the impressions will last for a long time!
