    Streets of Paris

    Historical street in Paris

    Paris rebuilt for many and many times. The great rebuilding was the result of the French revolution. The government’s aim was to destroy small streets and build direct boulevards. This style of city planning had to help the government to control people walkouts or armed conflicts. Narrow streets of old Paris is a rarity in modern city.

    what you might see on a stroll

    when in Paris, walk as much as you possibly can. You will miss out on so much if you take the easy way out - the Metro. you will be delighted by what you see, be it murals and other artwork, flowers, flowers and flowers, great architecture, a random cat sunning himself here and there, or youngsters out for a roller-skate.

    OPERAs de PARIS : The step brother : Opera Comique

    by mariev Updated Jan 15, 2005

    Facade de l'opera comique
    1 more image

    Also known as 'Salle Favart' (it's first name) the Opera Comique, (re)built in 1887 (on the location of the previous Comte de Choiseul's private theater) is now just a secondary implementation from the Opera Garnier.

    Initially dedicated to opera comique (a now vanished form of opera) and operette, it has lost importance since the decline of those genres and the creation of the Opera Bastille.

    It now hosts the "Centre National d'Art Lyrique" (part of the opera school) and the only performances presented are french opera works sung in french (along with the new opera singers auditions).
    But, in 2006, the Opera Comique may find a new youth, after undergoing a renovation (2005), it will gain the status of 'Theatre National' (and that means more budget...)

    Address : Rue Favart/Place Boieldieu
    Metro Richelieu Drouot or Quatre Septembre

    A house made of ceramics : the Galerie Paradis

    Galerie Paradis - wall detail
    4 more images

    If you happen to stroll rue de Paradis (the "crokery and china" street of Paris), you may notice, among the surronding non descript buildings, a very special looking house : the Galerie Paradis
    Built in 1900 by Jacottin, it was initially the Ceramic fabricant Boulenger's main store (the factory was located in Choisy le Roi).
    The facade looks like an italian theatre and the walls are decorated with pictures made out of ceramics.
    The designs are from Arnoux and Guidetti who were also the Maison Boulenger's main designers.
    From 1978 to 1991, the house used to host the Musee de l'Affiche et de la Publicite now situated in the Louvre (in the Pavillon de Marsan).
    If you are lucky enough, you can enter the courtyard and have a closer look (or else, just catch a glimpse though the railings).

    The "Jewish capital" of Paris is Rosiers street, located in Marais. The roses that justified the name are gone, and now the street houses many restaurants and commercial houses.

    Garden in the roof

    Paris - France

    I was sorrow for having no opportunity to visit one of the buildings that surround the "Arch du Triomphe". Atop of it is clearly visible a dense garden replacing the roof.

    What is it?

    "Walking around" is one of the best "things to do" in Paris. There is always an interesting shop window, or interesting person, or perhaps pairs of shoes hanging from a telephone wire!?

    I have no idea where we are. But there was this huge vent on the side of the street that was always blowing up air. So we thought it would be fun to stand on it.
