Mar 28, 2013
In March 2013 internet magazine melonrich.ru in cooperation with ingustravel.com has posted an article about my trip to Paris. Later that year in April they have decided to make a print version of it and put it in the magazine. Here is a quick overview of it. The original article is in Russian.
When one thinks of France, Paris immediately comes to mind, and yes, the capital and largest city of France is home to important monuments and museums such as the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and the Basilique du Sacre-Coeur, but wine lovers will want to visit Bordeaux, the world's major wine producer. The best wines of the world come from Bordeaux, but wine isn't the only tourist attraction in this port city.
It is called "City of Art and History" (it has 362 historic monuments, and it is a World Heritage Site for its art and arquitecture. The Saint-Andre Cathedral is one of the oldest monuments of the city (it was finished and consecrated in 1096), and Luis VII married Eleanor of Aquitaine here in 1137. The Place de la Bourse, the Grand Theatre, and the Basilica of Saint Michael are other important monuments. Tourists will continue to love Paris, but more and more visitors are checking out lovely cities like Bordeaux, Nice, Marseille, Toulouse and Strasbourg that offer plenty to see and do as well.
