Paris. Champs Elysees

Uritsk Andrey • 3 minutes read • August 7th, 2016
There are two most magnificent streets of Paris in neighborhoods close to the

Seine

in the north: the

Champs Elysees Avenue

, where numerous hotels and shops are located, and much more elegant Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, where the Elysee Palace is situated. The appearance of the gardens, which stretch along the Champs Elysees, virtually unchanged since they were laid out by the architect Jacques Hittorf in 1838. These gardens were also used as the venue for the World Expo in 1855.
Though the Avenue des Champs-Élysees is one of the brightest sights of

Paris

, it is located quite far from the city center.

The arch of 50 meters is decorated with expressive bas-reliefs and sculptures, and on November 11, 1920 at the base of the arch the body of the Unknown Soldier who died during the First World War was buried.
