Now the French depart from shock after the grandiose fire which strongly damaged one of the main monuments history of mankind. The well-known bell ringing of Notre-Dame will not begin to sound any more. After the fire on the island of Site in the center of the French capital it became unusually silent. The day before in this area sirens sounded, to see the fire by own eyes to Seine Embankment there were thousands of people. But everything that they could, it to observe how one of the main symbols of France burns as hours fall and falls a spire, the journalist Natali Zhiron tells. Natali Zhiron is a journalist "They surrounded to Zita the fire began to make the way on that perimeter where there are architectural works. Plus the most awful — a symbol which was watched by all on TV is a spire of cathedral which failed. It is necessary to tell that it is a masterpiece of world architecture, it in general is not subject to restoration". Videos of the fire broadcast all world TV channels. According to the mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo, the emergency services made all efforts as soon as possible to put out fire. However very many people among whom there was also an U.S. President Donald Trump asked a question: why the fire is not extinguished from air? Conditions did not allow, the expert in the field of fire safety Konstantin Kaluzhin explains. Konstantin Kaluzhin the expert in the field of fire safety "Difficulties in suppression because the roof burns, that is it means that the fire high-rise in itself. It turns out, from the helicopter it is impossible to extinguish because the roof can unambiguously collapse". Notre-Dame was under construction about two hundred years, the latest works were completed in 1345. For centuries of the very difficult history Notre Dame became the place of a crowning of Napoleon, it was nearly born by Robespierre, but it was. However, the cathedral came to desolation subsequently. The well-known novel by Victor Hugo gave it new life. The cathedral turned into a world famous sight, and in 1841 it was restored. After that the authorities did not pay special attention to Notre Dame. Last year the Catholic church urged to help cathedral with financing as the building began to collapse. As a result money for restoration after all found, according to the plan of work about 20 years had to last. Now term should be reconsidered. But now the authorities will not stint financing - it is a question of prestige, the journalist Andrey Zhvirblis says. Andrey Zhvirblis is a journalist "Certainly, it is shock absolute for very many. After all it is a symbol of France, and not only religious, and in general common cultural. They say that confusion and anger very much at many because, apparently, it was connected with some repair work. That is such mix of feelings because it is a symbol more symbolical, than D'Eiffel oh
