Parisian architecture: classical and modern

Paris is known throughout the world to be one of the most beautiful cities. Its charm is undeniable in the tree lined avenues and parks, bistros and cafés, and the effortlessly chic style of the Parisians. But what we are most captivated by is the elegant architecture that dominates the City of Light. The typical Haussmann buildings with black iron railings and hanging baskets are the epitome of Paris and what we excitedly await to see and photograph when visiting. The more Gothic structures, such as the Notre Dame Cathedral and the mesmerising Sainte Chapelle, add another dimension to the architectural beauty of the city. Then, of course, come the fascinating and more creative modern structures, such as the Fondation Louis Vuitton and the George Pompidou, that fit more to the 21st century architectural style.
