Casino de Monte-Carlo first opened its doors in 1856 as a gambling casino. The idea for a casino in Monaco came from Princess Caroline as a way to save the House of Grimaldi from bankruptcy. Over the years, the casino changed owners and locations and underwent renovations. Casino de Monte-Carlo is still open to this day as a casino and entertainment resort.
