Energy prices have skyrocketed in Europe
The main attraction of Paris will be left without illumination for the sake of economy
Paris Mayor's Office said the lights on the city's main landmark should be reduced to save energy amid rising prices.
This year, due to the conflict in Ukraine and the end of the pandemic, energy prices have risen sharply in Europe. Electricity is getting more expensive, so Europeans are trying to save it as much as possible.
The queue has reached the symbol of Paris, France and all of Europe – the famous Eiffel Tower. Now it is illuminated for 4-5 hours from sunset (20:00-21:00) to 01:00. The tower has a complex system of 336 spotlights and 20,000 light bulbs that give it that golden glow.
