Pinsteps. Saint-Michel, Paris
Places to visit in Paris. Languages: en, ru, he

The Saint-Michel square was rebuilt during the renovation of Paris by Baron Osman. The area was to be in harmony with the new wider bridge of Pont-Saint-Michel. Indeed, from this square, you can see some of the monuments of Ile-de-la-Cité, including Saint-Chapelle and the Palace of Justice. The fountain of Saint-Michel (fountain of St. Michael) decorates the square. It was designed by Gabriel David in 1855. The original central fountain statue was dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte, but this concept has been criticized by opponents of Napoleon III. After much debate, it was decided to place a statue of St. Michael, the Archangel (St. Michel in French), with two dragons pouring water into the fountain.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?
