If you have ever traveled to Europe, I am sure you have noticed the beautiful buildings, cathedrals, bridges, etc.
One design, the arch, is one of the most beautiful designs in many of the European cities.
I have never stopped and thought about this design before.
The history behind this design is quite interesting.
Did you know that the Etruscans were the first civilization to use an arch?
They only used the arch for building gates, bridges, and drains because it did not fit in with the classical architecture.
Years later, the arch became popular during the Roman Empire. They used this design everywhere in their cities.
Now, you will see it everywhere in the world!
