Paris is the capital of France and a major city in Europe. It is known as the City of Lights and its 19th-century cityscape, with Rococo- and Neoclassic-design architecture, and its historical churches, centuries old, bring visitors from around the world. Paris is known for it stately museums and galleries with fantastic art collections, and its culture. Not to be forgotten are the designer boutiques along the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré and the cafes and restaurants with their irresistible food. It is all of this that draws millions of people to Paris every year. The 19th-century cityscape is crisscrossed by wide boulevards and, of course, the River Seine. World famous landmarks including the Eiffel Tower and the 12th-century, Gothic Notre-Dame cathedral are simple not to be missed.
