Hello! My name is Yana. Welcome to my blog, devoted to my hobby — collecting tickets. I like to travel and to visit different interesting arrangements very much. I keep tickets from every travel, concert, exhibition or cinema. For now I have a little collection of tickets from several countries and I wish to make it bigger. I will appreciate everybody who can send me:
- transport tickets (bus, train, air tickets, etc.);
- tickets from museums;
- ticket from exhibitions;
- tickets from places of interest;
- tickets from cinema or any other tickets you can send me.

It is my address:

Ticket from France

Musée des Arts Décoratifs, a museum of the decorative arts and design, 107 rue de Rivoli, Paris 1er, France. It is part of Les Arts Décoratifs.

Located in the Louvre museum's western wing, known as the Pavillon de Marsan, the museum was founded in 1905 by members of the Union des Arts Décoratifs. It houses and displays furniture, interior design, altar pieces, religious paintings, objets d'arts, tapestries, wallpaper, ceramics and glassware, plus toys from the Middle Ages to the present day.

The collection is primarily composed of French furniture, tableware, carpets such as those from Aubusson, porcelain such as that by the Manufacture nationale de Sèvres, and a large number of pieces of glass by René Lalique, Émile Gallé and numerous others. And there are modern examples by designers like Eileen Gray, Charlotte Perriand, and those of the Art Nouveau and Art Déco styles. However, the deep holdings range back to the 13th century when Europe became the capital of culture in the Western world.

Of interest to the public are the period rooms. Examples include part of Jeanne Lanvin's house (decorated by Albert-Armand Rateau (1884–1938) in the early 1920s) at 16 rue Barbet-de-Jouy in Paris. Others are graphic artist Eugène Grasset's dining room of 1880, and the 1752 Gold Cabinet of Avignon. And, peculiar to a French museum it seems, there is the 1875 bedroom of courtesan Lucie Émilie Delabigne, purportedly the inspiration for the main character in Émile Zola's novel Nana (1880).

There is a famous ceiling there once owned by the famous Jeanne Baptiste d'Albert de Luynes, mistress of the then duke of Savoy.

Some of the museum's vast number of exhibitions has been distinguished. Yvonne Brunhammer, a curator and then director of the museum for over four decades from the early 1950s and the person who rediscovered Eileen Gray, organized the 1966 exhibition, "Les Années '25': Art Déco/Bauhaus/Stijl Esprit Nouveau". The exhibition served to coin "Art Déco", the term that came to describe design between the World Wars, particularly French modern design.

The museum is somewhat on a par with similar and venerable decorative-arts and design-focused institutions such as the more international Victoria and Albert Museum in London and was the inspiration for the Hewitt sisters' collection in the Cooper Union (the ancestor of the no-longer-affiliated Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum) in New York City. However, due to the large number of fine-art exhibitions mounted at the Paris museum, its focus has been diluted and caused its name—Musée des "Art Decoratifs"—to be a misnomer.

Ticket from Italy

The Rome Metro (Italian: Metropolitana di Roma)

The Rome Metro is an underground public transportation system that operates in Rome, Italy. It opened in 1955. There are currently two lines, A line (identified by the orange colour) and B line (blue). A third service, the green C line, and a new branch of the B line, are currently under construction. Plans have also been revealed for a fourth line. The current network (38 km) has an X-shape with the two currently existing lines intersecting at Termini Station, the main train station in Rome.

Rome's local transport provider, ATAC, also operates several other rail services: the Roma-Lido, the Roma-Pantano and the Roma-Nord lines. The first of these, the Rome-Lido railway line, which connects Rome to the sea at Ostia, is effectively part of the metro network, is run along similar lines and using trains similar to those in service on the A and B lines. The Roma-Pantano line, although officially designated as a railway, is a narrow gauge tram line while the Roma-Nord line is a suburban railway.

Rome's metro system is considerably less developed when compared to many European capitals and has only 38 km of track, in comparison to 150 km (+330 S-Bahn) in Berlin and 400 km in London.
