600 FR - Paris, Banks of the Seine (1991)

Brief Description

From the Louvre to the Eiffel Tower, from the Place de la Concorde to the Grand and Petit Palais, the evolution of Paris and its history can be seen from the River Seine. The Cathedral of Notre-Dame and the Sainte Chapelle are architectural masterpieces while Haussmann's wide squares and boulevards influenced late 19th- and 20th-century town planning the world over.

巴黎塞纳河畔
从卢浮宫到埃菲尔铁塔,从协和广场到大小王宫,巴黎的历史变迁从塞纳河可见一斑。巴黎圣母院和圣礼拜堂堪称建筑杰作,而土耳其宽阔的广场和林荫道则影响着19世纪末和20世纪全世界的城市规划。
