The acquaintance with France begins, of course, in Paris. All the most Europe-shocking innovations took place there, all the creative ambitions of the geniuses were realized in the French capital. If all roads lead to Rome then all dreams lead to Paris.
Paris…a dream came true. Fantasy of the best architectures became reality in numerous architectural masterpieces, fantasy of the gardeners found expression in the most fascinating parks with shady lanes and sweet-smelling flowerbeds, fantasy of fashion designers resulted in the multitude of the most trendy goods displayed in illuminated shop-windows. One should obligatory visit Paris. At least once in a lifetime every person should stroll along the cozy streets hand in hand with his or her beloved, dine at a restaurant with a bottle of wine and simply breathe the air of the capital!
To the west of Paris spreads out a captivating European world of the Disney heroes. American settlements, exotic lands, fantastic corners and even the cities of future are reconstructed there. The Disneyland consists of the Disneyland Park and the Walt Disney Studios. Disneyland Park is a theme 138 acre park. It’s divided into five Lands: Main Street USA, Frontierland, Adventureland, Fantasyland and Discoveryland. The Walt Disney Studio is devoted to the relationships with the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studio, so everything is connected with the movies. One can see how the thrillers are shot, look at the work of the costumiers and feel the atmosphere of a real cinema. Disney have ensured that nothing is left to chance. From the smallest detail in planning to the largest construction everything is made to the highest degree of accuracy. This is a real entertainment for kids and their parents alike. Don’t reject yourself a treat to order an excursion to the Disneyland!
It’s hard to find another place where one can meet so many castles built in XI-XVII centuries. You are awaited by a meeting with the history of France which is often sad. Many people say that this historical side of the French capital is no less interesting than Paris with all its glamour and magnificence.
And don’t forget to go to Normandy or Brittany, the backwoods of France. This side of France is very interesting. To have a complete view of the country one should try to understand the meaning of the leisurely way of life the French province has been leading for centuries.
The trip starts right at the Belgium border. In the nearest French city Amgen one can find the Notre Dame cathedral constructed in the XIII century. It is the biggest cathedral in France.
Another wonder of this corner of France is Mont Saint Michel (Mount Saint Michael). This is an impressive granite rock crowned by a monastery and a huge cathedral, devoted to archangel Michael. The uniqueness of this “architectural wonder” lies also in the fact that it stands on the small island connected to the continent by a big dike.
And certainly one should visit the castles situated in the valley of the Loire river. Along the road you will make stops in the French villages where the French peasants will treat you to the real Camembert and the apple vodka Calvados. Step by step (stop by stop in this case) you will become a real connoisseur of local wine.
It’s possible to talk about France for hours. To understand its charm and fascination one should come to the country at least one time. Everyone who comes to France finds something to his or her liking. Once in France, you fall in love with the country. It captivates you and doesn’t let you go. So make no resistance. Surrender!
