Everything has a story behind it. Whether it’s a painting or the building across the road from you. And with time, the stories are forgotten and not many live to know the actual history and secrets behind them. While all of us are well familiar with the Eiffel Tower, The Golden Gate Bridge, and the Mona Lisa, there’s still A LOT you don’t know about them and the great mysteries behind these famous icons. Here’s a list of some of the most intriguing ones for you to take a look at.

Eiffel Tower

Gustave Eiffel, the man who designed France’s most famous monument, built an apartment for himself on its topmost floor. The apartment contains a kitchen, bathroom, two bedrooms, and a living room which now serves as a museum. He often used it to rest and receive guests and once he had a long conversation there with Thomas Edison too.
