About this title

Synopsis:

From the Publisher: Did you know? 20,000 bulbs light up the Eiffel Tower. Although beloved by the French, croissants actually originated in Budapest in the late 1600s. 17,000 people were beheaded during the French Revolution. Priests at Notre-Dame Cathedral hear confessions in eight languages: French, English, Spanish, Italian, German, Portuguese, Arabic, and Japanese. In this follow-up to the popular Little-Known Facts About Well-Known Stuff, David Hoffman delves into the stories behind some of our favorite places. Little-Known Facts about Well-Known Places goes beyond the obvious to reveal the tidbits that we have yet to discover. Covering every aspect-from food, film, and fashion to people, history, and art- these collections of offbeat facts and figures are guaranteed to delight a first-time visitor and surprise even the most jaded local. Packed with a wealth of revelations, Little-Known Facts about Well-Known Places is a must-have for know-it-alls, information addicts, curious readers, armchair travelers, and pop culture junkies of all ages.
