Place des Vosges

6:06 PM Imke Db 27 Comments


Even though I have been living in Paris for about a year in total, I still discover new places and facts every week; today my friend Nicola and I went to Twinkies Breakfast to have brunch, which was so good! If you are in Paris and craving a good American, English, French or Scandinavian breakfast, go there, they serve the best! While eating, my friend told me about this place in the Marais, Place des Vosges, which is so beautiful and has such a rich history, and also perfect to take pictures! I must admit I had passed by this place sometime, but never gave it the attention it deserved...

So today, after our brunch, we took a long walk through Le Marais, and walked to Place des Vosges. Apparently, it used to belong to the Royal family of France back in the old days, and when Googling this place, I discovered that also Victor Hugo used to live in one of the buildings surrounding it, and that this is the oldest square of Paris. Who knew Sundays could be so educative huh?

  2. I'm glad Sunday ended up being educative and eventful for you:)
    I think we can always rediscover a city we live in (or stay in), because there is always something new to see. I often discover new things in the town I live in, especially when I show it around.

    Paris must be a dreamy place to live...I would sure love to visit one day. One of my cousins spend almost her whole life there, she's my granny's generation and is an awarded and accomplished painter. I loved seeing her paintings of Paris- she used to paint only rooftops--so interesting!

    1. Thank you Ivana for your sweet and interesting comment. I totally agree; I always discover new things every day, and the city becomes more and more part of me. My family is visiting me right now and I love showing them my favourite parts, and telling them new things they didn't know yet, and it makes me so proud of Paris, my city :) It really is a nice place to live & you should most definitely visit! I'm sure you will love it! Painters & Paris are a wonderful combination and it's so nice to hear your cousins lived here for so long. I'm sure her paintings are so beautiful! XOXO

  16. You can live billion years on a big city and there's always gonna be a new place to discover. I mean, I've been living in mine for almost 7 years, and I'm now starting to really get to know it.

  17. Het klinkt als zo'n fijne dag! Heerlijk om op zondag lekker te eten en wandelen, en al helemaal als het in parijs is!

  18. Wow!!! Ja, echt zo'n plaats waar ik een hele dag kan doorbrengen. Parijs is mijn favoriete stad.. heb er altijd willen wonen, vanaf kleins af aan.. ik zou modeontwerpster worden in Parijs! Het is iets anders gelopen, maar goed, everything happens for a reason. Leuk te zien dat jij mijn droom hebt kunnen waarmaken.. you go girl!

    Liefs,
    Lucia
