Near points of interests were once again long queues of those wishing to visit the Eiffel tower.
The Eiffel tower, which for two days was closed because of a strike by staff on Friday re-opened to the public.
“On Friday, August 3, the Eiffel tower is open and taking visitors from 9:00 a.m. to midnight,” reads a message posted on Twitter on the work of Eiffel tower.
The tower was closed in the afternoon on Wednesday, August 1, due to the strike of the staff. Dissatisfaction of employees is due to the huge queues at the entrance, which began to arise after the company-operator of the tower increased the number of pre-sales of tickets at a certain time of the visit to the monument and highlighted for visitors with these tickets separate elevators . As a result of other elevators began to accumulate a long queue of those buying tickets in the normal queue on the day of visit.
Meanwhile, local media reported that on Friday morning near the landmark were once again long queues of those wishing to visit the Eiffel tower.
Recently, the Eiffel tower was struck by lightning.
