I was curious to see what this decorated Metro station entrance was all about. It's kind of Bollywood and cool.

One of the most ornamental entrances of all the Metro stations and the artwork is known as “Kiosk of the night owls”. The metro station is located between the Louvre and the lovely Palais Royal gardens.

The decoration of it is Christmas-like, or maybe something that reminds me of fairy tales. Anyway, it's a pretty and different one. Even if you won't take the subway, you'll still have nice photos of it.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
