Palais BerlitzInaugurated as the Hanover Palace, at the crossroads of the Boulevard des Italiens and rue de Hanover, this beautiful art deco building is called Palais Berlitz when the language teacher of the same name settled here... It seems impossible to imagine that here from September 1941 to January 1942 the exhibition "The Jew and France" was held here. During the occupation, anti-Semitism had become commonplace in the capital, where the flags of Nazi Germany are everywhere. This propaganda exhibition, organized by the Institute for the Study of Jewish Questions, was intended to denigrate the Jewish people, based on the work of George Montandon, the anthropologist and author of the shameful book "How to recognize the Jew?". Despite the wooly nature of his scientific theories, "The Jew and France" managed to attract 500,000 visitors.
The National Archives MusuemAs the name suggests, the National Archives Musuem at 60, rue des Francs-Bourgeois, has a rich collection of unique documents, most of which are more than a century old: manuscripts of great Revolutionaries, the constitution of 1789, historical trial reports, war declaration posters, but also photos, engravings, atlases ... impossible not to leave without being moved by the reality of the facts that have changed history. And to have a little rest after the visit, take a walk in the musuem's beautiful gardens, usually very quiet which are more than pleasant.
Swedish CoffeeA cultural center with an inner courtyard that turns into a sunny terrace in the afternoon. Pass through the blue gates of the Swedish Institute at 11 rue Payenne, and you will discover the Swedish Café, surrounded by its many deckchairs. In the kitchen, you will be seduced by Swedish specialties maded with elderflower or traditional Kanelbullar, a kind of cinnamon bun. Protected by the walls of the Hotel de Marle, the hubbub of Paris will seem far away, and yet the Swedish Café is in the heart of the Marais.
Hôtel de VilleIf you look up, you will see the coat of arms of Paris. The boat refers to the Nautes Gauls who were the first to trade on the Seine. The blue and the red correspond to the colors of the city, white is the color of the monarchy ; this is also the reason why the French flag has these 3 colors. With the attacks of November 13, 2015, the Parisian Coat of Arms saw a surge in popularity, as its motto "Fluctuat nec Mergitur", or "He is defeated by the waves but never sinks" was a symbol of courage and hope for Parisians, from all nationalities, in the face of obscurantism. For this reason, the motto was painted in several parts of the city by the graffiti group Grim Team.
Statue of Montaigne"To know by heart is not to know: it is to retain what we have given our memory to keep", this quote from Montaigne must have inspired many students, which is why a long-standing tradition at the Sorbonne is that students go for a walk in front of the Montaigne statue before their examination at 56 Rue des Ecoles. To give themselves some courage and a bit of good luck, they touch his shoe and greet the French philosopher. Located at the Sorbonne's entrance of honor, the statue of Michel de Montaigne has been there since 1933 in the small square Paul-Painlevé, with the foot slightly burnished from the numerous caresses.
The Cluny MuseumThe Cluny Museum at 6 Place Paul Painlevé, is now an institution dedicated to medieval art with its famous centerpiece being the tapestry of the Lady with the Unicorn. And yet the hotel de Cluny previously had plenty of other functions. Originally the residence for the priests of the order of Cluny, in the 18th century it became the workplace of a printer who adapted the chapel to install his printing machines. During the revolution, like many buildings, the hotel de Cluny was damaged. It was converted into an observatory - the tower was used as a strategic point of observation, and in 1833 it became the cabinet of curiosities belonging to a master of the Court of Auditors, who placed his art collections in a few of the rooms. Finally, the Cluny thermal baths, of which you can still see some its remains, were an ensemble of 2000 year old Roman baths...
