Type - Architecture, Monuments
The Casino du Monte Carlo is listed among the oldest gambling establishments in the world (this casino was the first in Europe). Of course, people have different attitudes to gambling, however, the country has managed to survive the economic crisis at the end of the last century with the income of «gambling» activities.

Monte Carlo CasinoThe year of the Casino du Monte Carlo opening is 1863. But soon, the first building was almost completely destroyed by fire, and the architect Charles Garnier, specially invited for this purpose (the one who created the building of the Opera de Paris), has been engaged in the construction of a new casino. The casino opened its doors in 1878. (Since then, his appearance remains virtually unchanged; only later, a fountain and a green lawn appeared in front of the entrance).

Furthermore, people who are absolutely indifferent to the game of poker and roulette, also visit the Casino du Monte Carlo. The reason for their visit is one of the most beautiful rooms called «Hall Garnier», which houses the Opera of Monte Carlo. (The Russian ballet performances of Sergei Diaghilev and the famous singer Fyodor Chaliapin took place back then there).

The Foyer of the Opera is decorated in gold and red, there are many pictures with allegorical scenes, beautiful sculptures and bronze fixtures in the halls of the casino. A large hall Atrium is also interesting, the marble floor is surrounded by 28 Ionic onyx columns.

Slot machines are located here in the Atrium and in the Salle Blanche. (The casino has several playrooms - in addition to the above, there is the Salle Europe and the Salle des Amériques, the Salle Médecin and so on). Only certain games are palayed in each room (Blackjack, Baccarat, American Roulette, British and European and Punto Banco).

The Casino du Monte Carlo can be visited on a daily basis - from 14:00 until the closing of the slot machine room. Persons authorized for entry must be over 21 years (the presence of your ID card is a prerequisite).

An entrance fee will be charged (about 10 Euros for a tour of the building and common playrooms, 20 Euros - for a tour of private game rooms. The entrance to the room where they play roulette is 200 Euros).

Note the presence of a fairly strict dress code – they do not let anyone here in jeans or shorts (men should necessarily wear a jacket and a tie). Players in a private room are not allowed after 20:00, even in sports shoes, as well as in military uniform or religious robes.
Tourists with familiarization objectives can enter the Salle de la Renaissance, the Salle Europe, the Salle des Amériques, the Salle Blanche and the private Salle Médecin and the Salons Touzet. Working hours: From 9:00 to 12:30 (tickets should be purchased up to 12 hours).

However, do not worry if you are not able to visit the casino. You can admire its beautiful interiors by watching films such as Coco (about Coco Chanel), To Catch a Thief by A. Hitchcock and James Bond series (Never Say Never Again,  GoldenEye and others.)
