After spending forenoon in Reims it was time to go to Paris.
When we entered the city I was like whooow!
The City is huge! Everything in Paris is so big, big streets, big buildings, big monuments.
First thing that got on my mind was, OK I’m going to get lost here!
Our first destination was Montmartre.
Montmartre is a hill best known for the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré Cœur and as a nightclub district.
Also is the place for the Artists. In the end 19th century the district become the artistic center of Paris.
Many of famous painters worked there like Vincent van Gogh, Picasso, Renoir, Degas
Basilica of the Sacre Coeur is a roman catholic church, placed on the highest place in the city.
Also known as The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris was built from 1875 – 1914.
On the basilica you can see the statues of king Saint Louis and Joan of Arc.
We went up the stairs to the basilica. The best thing about Montmartre is the view from the top of the hill.
It is really magnificent. We enjoyed the moment just looking on the City. After we went for a walk.
Walking around Montmartre is just great.
There are many painters so you can get your portrait taken or buy a picture if you are interested in Art.
Also you can try a famous Onion soup or just sit down and listen to a girl playing a violin.
At the Montmartre you see the truly artistic side of Paris. Just beautiful.
After spending some time there we went to see the Moulin Rouge.
From the outside it is a very small building. I really didn’t imagine it like that.
From the beginning Moulin Rouge was used for dances and dance performances, primarily for Cancan.
It was built 1889. Unfortunately we didn’t go inside , but they told us that the inside is bigger. Maybe some other time. It is pretty expensive.
That was it for that day. We went to our hotel to get some rest for tomorrow.
