Paris from a retro postcard

by Alexandra Rozhkova

Paris as most people know is all about a geometry of straight lines of Grands Boulevards, constructed under the supervision of Baron Haussmann in the second half of the 19th century. It’s at this time that the little wonky houses and narrow streets were replaced by classical Parisian buildings. And even if many of them are lost forever, Paris is still full of these hidden treasures, like from a retro postcard. Thanks to this path you’ll discover quaint shops with their old storefronts, tucked away in little courtyards, or peaceful covered arcades that have barely changed since the times they were built. This path is covering mostly the area of Rive Droite (the Right Bank), and reaches out almost as far as Bois de Boulogne (Jardin des Serres d’Auteuil) in the west, and Saint-Ouen neighborhood in the north. All the other places are located in the heart of Paris, offering charming strolls and appealing to the eyes of a curious “flâneur”.
