When the Monte Carlo casino in Monaco opened its doors it became a huge success and brought in enormous crowds where big dollars were spent and won on a daily basis. Before the Monte Carlo casino was built, Monaco was one of the poorest states in Europe and on the edge of declaring bankruptcy.
Today, the casino in Monte Carlo is where many famous people come to enjoy a night of excitement and see how the luck of the draw plays out. The casino is full of life and there is never a dull moment to be found in Monte Carlo, Monaco.
The exterior was designed by some extremely talented architectures and the interior is in the Belle Epoque style adorned with elaborate chandeliers, marble and gilt. The gardens that surround the Monte Carlo casino are carefully tended to and scattered with ponds where reeds and water lilies grow. The back of the casino faces the sea and is bordered by terraces that can be enjoyed in the brilliant Mediterranean sun.
