Translated from armenian. Angelina Arzumanyan’s journey.
One of the most famous cities in the world, Paris, has become the aspiration of millions.
Some are drawn to original architecture, some to the kitchen, some just want to see the Eiffel tower and take pictures.
Having spent almost a week in the city of love, I can assure you that you will not regret it if you visit. It is simply impossible to overlook the buildings of the city. Its narrow streets make for unbelievable pleasure. In every corner of the city you can try the masterpieces of French cuisine. Every hour of the day is different. You should check the temperature of the day / hour in advance. You must have a raincoat or waterproof jacket for safety. If you get lost or don’t find the place you want, you can ask locals in English. Knowledge of French is not required. In addition, Google map works very well and you can quickly navigate with your smartphone.
If you are in Paris, then you should definitely take pictures of the Eiffel Tower. If you have enough time, I recommend climbing the stairs instead of taking the elevator. The view that opens from the tower is simply incredible. Evening lights are bright and the round-the-clock tower shines. There is also a zip line on the tower. Active entertainment lovers will definitely like this. The Eiffel has three floors. Inside there are shops, food shops, but I wouldn’t recommend shopping there. In France, everything is expensive, and more on the tower.
You can’t imagine how excited I was to visit the Louvre Museum. It was the most important point for me in Paris. One can easily get lost there. The unique masterpieces of art were dizzying. One day it is not enough to explore the museum. It should take at least a couple of days. You can turn around with the guide or pay at the entrance to get the audio. The choice is yours. There are also shops and food outlets here. You will definitely have nothing to lack. There are a variety of souvenirs and stationery in the Louvre that can only be found there. Despite the high price, I think it’s worth getting some.
Not less interesting is the Orsay Museum. It is famous for its self-portrait of Van Gogh. This multi-storey building will not leave anyone indifferent. Everyone will find their works of interest here.
I think it’s the dream of many to be in Disney land. Unfortunately, I must say that you will not enjoy it and your perceptions will not be justified. You have to stand in line for about an hour. You must queue at least two hours to enter each attraction. I assure you this is a senseless watch. If you can’t imagine your visit to Paris without attractions, I have a better idea for you. The Jardin d’Acclimatation Park is a great option for hiking with friends or with children. The park was built in 1860-70. After 9 months of repair, on September 4, 2017, it received a new breath. 17 new attractions have been added, and the old ones have been renovated and now there are 40 attractions in the park. The park has no age limit. Both children and adults can find interesting things for them. You can watch 3D movies about animals, sit down for extreme attractions or just take a stroll. A small part of the garden is a farm. There are different animals and birds. Another is Asian-style Seoul Park. In short, you will not get bored.
Anako boat is a great place to spend the evening. Every Friday there are parties dedicated to the music of different nations. I was there when it was Armenian Day. Apart from the Armenians, there were representatives of other nationalities who studied Armenian songs and dances with great pleasure.
Of course, I can’t help mentioning that Paris is a really dirty city, especially the subway. It is not a good option for a long-term stay. Anyway, you can go to Paris to study. Visiting one of the universities there, I realized that I wanted to go back to that great educational environment.
In Paris, you are very likely to be mugged. Be alert as much as possible. Always keep your hand on the bag, otherwise, pickpockets will easily take its contents.
This was, of course, the least I presented from Paris. If you have decided to go to Paris, search in advance and find the one that interests you most. Don’t forget about beautiful photos.
