The system of classification newly-developed for the second World Exhibition in Paris and covering all industrial and cultural products and goods, as well as all forms of human activity, was accompanied by revolutionary architecture. Walking just once through a huge oval in the exhibition palace, it was possible to see all the products of a nation or of one type. In the park around the exhibition palace, the nations of the world erected their own pavilions for the first time. Artistic water spectacles were presented and stalls and foreign restaurants and cafes were erected, giving the public the opportunity to relax after the exhausting tour round the mammoth show in the exhibition palace. This World Exhibition was also a great success on the diplomatic front and was visited by almost all the aristocracy of Europe.
