In Las Vegas you can see a lot. For example FRENCH Eiffel Tower. Initially it was planned to build a tower in its original size, but due to the location that situated near the international airport, it was decided to build a replica in scale 1:2.
Real Eiffel Tower was built in 1889 and consists of thousands of metal parts, held together by 2.5 million rivets. A copy is made of welded steel and all the rivets are not real, and made for the maximum resemblance to the original.
Copy was completed in May 1997 at an estimated cost of $760 million.
