Upon arrival at the western end of Champs-Élysées, the Mysticals stopped by the grand Arc de Triomphe. It is the victory monument of Napoléon I to honour the triumph of his Grande Armée at the battle of Austerlitz (1805). Under the arch rests the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
The Unknown Soldier was put to sleep in the year 1921, in honour of the 1.3 million soldiers of France who sacrificed their lives in WWI.
“Look here. This surface has the names of the generals and battles from the First Empire and the Revolution,” noticed Orak. Before leaving, the four climbed the 284 steps of the monument and got a fantastic view of the Champs-Elysées, The Louvre, and the 12-avenue star on which the arch stands.
