Paris has everything: it has existed for so long that it has fantastic history and monuments that go way back in history, beautiful architecture, hundreds of museums and art galleries where the most famous artifacts in the world are displayed. It has palaces, cathedrals, churches, catacombs and amazing cemeteries. You can find every aspect of culture there and there is something to suit every taste: opera, ballet, concerts, jazz, pop concerts, sports arenas, high fashion and couture, parks and gardens, stunning statues and handsome squares, a lovely river along which you can cruise with an interesting assortment of bridges . It has amazing shops that offer everything you could think of.
Paris, as you probably realise, is the capital of France and is on the river Seine. It is in a northerly direction from the geographical centre of France.The most interesting part is obviously the centre with Notre-Dame Cathedral on an island mid- river. There also is the famous Louvre there which used to be the residence of the royal family and is now one of the world's largest and most impressive art museums on the opposite bank. In the suburb of Versailles there is the most beautiful palace in the world that stands in stunning gardens with fountains and hundreds of statues.
It would take months to write about it all in detail. Paris, Paris, Paris captures me wholly
