Paris: City of Light and Fascination

9 Apr

“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”

Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast


Breathtaking places, great boulevards stretching on forever as if melting into dusting horizons, golden domes and lively bistros; Paris has everything.   Over centuries many cities have their charm lost, have their glories faded in the course of time. But Paris has preserved its natural beauty, fascinating us with its palaces and parks, with its grand squares and enchanting small streets. Even nowadays, Paris continues to evolve, confidently mixing past, present and future, summoning memories, ghosts and hopes, affirming the city’s voice as a queen and lover for present and future visitors; the city is a generous home to the avant-grade cultural scene, and to the continually flourishing modern one – together with the ancient monuments of Napoleon and Hausmann stand monuments of the modern age.
Considered as one of the most beautiful cities, Paris also has the reputation of one of the most romantic cities in the world and this is not accidentally. No one knows how to enjoy the balance of life- the simple things and the pleasures in life – more fully than Parisians.  It is hard to think of something more romantic than standing on the steps of the Basilica du Sacre- Coeur and looking down at the whole city center with the Eiffel Tower looking back up to you.
