The district is a really nice mix between classical and contemporary architecture.
The July column (10 min walking from the BNB, is a really emblematic monument for France. It celebrate the revolution of July 1830.
You can also find some non touristic street hidden and so typical of the old Paris.
The contemporary architecture of the Opéra Bastille is really in an interesting opposition of the Haussmanien old kind of building of the capital.
In the Opéra Bastille is playing the National Opéra of Paris, one of the best of the world. Making Paris the a major destination for tourists.
And the district is not just the opera’s elegance. Just walk randomly around and you will find some typical artisans shops in that part of Paris.
What is more typical of Paris than a french Baguette ?
