Top 10 Admirable places to see in Paris
Arc de Triomphe
This arc had been built by Napoleon and though his triumph wasn’t long lasting, this construction survived many decades and goes on admiring us with its monumentality and laconic brevity of design.
This tower is a great example of good PR-company. It is not the tallest and not the most complicated from the point of view of construction tower in the world. But who may dare arguing that it is not the most famous one. Seeing it is a must in your program of visiting Paris.
This is the place where Frenchmen and Russians or Americans forget about their nationalities, where a schoolgirl can be cooler than a policeman, where all childish dreams come true no matter how old you are. Welcome to the Disneyland – the best landmark in Paris to visit with children.
Père Lachaise Cemetry
Who said that a cemetery cannot be a city landmark, especially if it is the oldest cemetery in one of the most beautiful cities in the world? This romantic, philosophical and a little bit sad place is covered with legends and can become a great break from noisy city.
A Walk through Montmartre
Dive into the world of noisy street, crowded with talented people – painters are selling their works of art here, singers are practicing new songs and mimes – new roles. In all this cacophony of sounds and colors there hover Muses of all possible kinds of Arts.
Catacombs of Paris
First “citizens” of this underground cemetery were the victims of plague and St. Bartholomew’s Day massacre. They say about two million people had found the last piece here.
Notre Dame de Paris
So many books, films, theater shows and songs has been devoted to this thousand-years old building that barely there is anything else to add. Though visited by crowds of tourists daily, still this place has its’ own, a little bit ominous spirit.
Those lucky ones who have become students of this university know – annually the building of Sorbonne attracts thousands of tourists, and it Is not surprising – this is one of the most well-known universities in the world.
Jardin du Luxembourg (Gardens of Luxembourg)
As any other architectural and natural ensemble in Paris and in the whole world, this place strikes with amazing combination of the nature and human genius reflected in the architecture.
Don’t be scared of the long lines – yes they exist, but the Louvre – the biggest museum in Europe if not in the whole world – worth waiting and wasting time in lines. The collection of this museum is so huge that probably its workers themselves didn’t see all the displays of the Museum.
