Hello travel-hungry folk and welcome back to our travel blog. Have you ever been to Paris? Well, I have and will tell you that, there something magical happens every single time. The city gets under your skin and at the end of the trip, you simply feel like you are in a real relationship with a freaking city. But what is so special about Paris?
I can’t be really sure, but I have a hutch it is a mix of everything. Architecture, heritage sites, food, and probably people as well. Paris is an old metropolitan city and there is no surprise you will find many interesting sights no matters the preferences. If you are an architecture sucker like me then you will be amazed 100%. On the other hand, if you are a nature lover, craving parks like Vivi, then you will be amazed again. Looks like this city can fulfill many different tastes..
History, Art and Culture
Sophisticated cities are well-known for these three subjects and Paris is no different. If you are in search of any of these you will be satisfied for sure. There are many galleries, museums, libraries, they even made art out of strip shows. Moulin Rouge cabaret is a freaking institution. Not only that, I think everyone should be in Paris for a month at least to check most of it. Our next visit will be long-term for sure!
Ahh yes, architecture photography is a thing and here in Paris, one will be very busy with it. It doesn’t even matter, old or modern, you will find something for sure. I was impressed by the cathedrals and their lush look. Do you still remember the Notre Dame fire? Here is our article about it and how important are other things, rather than this.
However, Saint Michael astonished me much more. Can architecture photographers wish for anything more? PS: If you are into architecture photography, please check our posts.
As you probably know our blog is mostly about hedonistic satisfaction, and food might be on the top of the list. French cuisine is one of the most famous and there is a reason for this. They started making something more out of the ingredients far back in time. French royalty was one of the most spoiled brats, and they requested only the best. We are still dreaming about our macaron hunt in Paris. After all, Michelin Stars are coming from France and some famous world restaurants are holding french cuisine even if they are in another food paradise. You can check our Le Normandie Review and see by yourself.
Is Paris Good for Photographers?
Yes, yes and yes. Your camera will burst there, no matter the preferences. Cityscape photography or street photography, it doesn’t matter. On every corner you will find your next subject. Our plan for next visit of Paris is to have even a new camera and new lenses. To step up our game for this stunning place.
What About the Night?
Another city of lights another good place for shooting night shots. Sometimes I get carried away and makes some abstracts.
Is It All Gold and Honey?
Naaah, of course not, Every big city has its own big problems. In Paris is probably the biggest minus – Immigrants. Sometimes you will have the feeling you are on the street of Senegal and running black “merchants” in front of cops is a no rare phenomenon here.
But there are too many good sides of Paris, so you will easily forget on bad. If you have a chance, visit it. After Corona time maybe. 2024 will be a good year!
