Each collection is located on the first floor, second floor, ground floor (ground floor) and the basement (lower ground floor). On the floor of the visitors are spoiled with a collection of paintings, decorative arts and antique objects from Egypt, Greece, and Rome.

But of course, the most interesting collection of enthusiasts on the first floor is the painting "Mona Lisa" by Leonardo da Vinci. Rusian visitors gathered in front of the paintings on display at the Italian paintings made ​​between the 13th century and 15th century.

Paintings made ​​in Florence, Italy, between 1503 and 1506 was besieged the visitor which scramble the picture. Unlike other paintings on display it with the frame on the surface of the wall, "Mona Lisa" is coated with a transparent protective frame sort of a small table in front of him.

There is a distance of about three feet between the crowd with the "Mona Lisa". Distance is also the access for visitors who use assistive devices for walking, such as wheelchairs.

Some officers keep a special "Mona Lisa", unlike other painting unpunished. There are up to three guards who guard on the left and right of the painting "Mona Lisa", sometimes more if the line more and more.

It was mid-July, coinciding with summer vacation. Visitors from a number of States of Europe, America, and Asia to meet the museum.

The visitors who want to perpetuate the "Mona Lisa" could not linger stood in front of the painting. The problem will continue to urge other visitors from behind.

There are only less than a minute to be able to capture the image and repeat once or twice more if not satisfied. For visitors who come alone, visitors will usually be light enough hand to help take pictures with background "Mona Lisa".

One of the officers of the Louvre that day vigil near the painting "Mona Lisa", Ludovic Giboyou (34), said the summit would take up the crowd ahead of the Christmas holidays in late December. "That's why I always take off my right at this time," joked her.
