19th Arrondissement

The Nineteenth arrondissement is located on the Rive Droite (Right Bank) of Paris. This part of Paris is known for its canals, parks, museums and exhibition centers. It is also known as a center of music, and not only because it hosts numerous concerts, but also because it is the sight of one of Europe’s largest and most prestigious conservatories. There are indeed numerous sights and attractions in the Nineteenth which draw people to the area and its Paris apartments.

Paris apartments in the Nineteenth have the fortune to be near the Parc de la Villette. This park is unquestionably a jewel of Paris. It is replete with splendid follies and structures that are inspired by the deconstructivist architecture. The sights of all of the follies give promenades through the park a feel of a modern art museum visit. Through the park also runs a peaceful canal that is crisscrossed by bridges. Across a lawn from the canal is the largest science museum in Europe, the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie. The size of this museum truly permits it to have everything. The interior of the center, along with its numerous exhibitions, has an impressive aquarium and planetarium. Dry docked outside the museum is the former French navy submarine the Argonaute which can be toured. Only a hundred meters or so from the Argonaute is La Géode. The Géode is a geodesic dome (spherical structure) with a mirror finish. In the interior of La Géode is an Omnimax (altered IMAX) theater. The Parc de la Villette also gives music a similar treatment with the Cité de la Musique. The institutions of this musical conglomerate include amphitheaters, concert halls, and a music museum. The music museum has an incredible collection of classical music instruments that date back centuries. Soon enough (2012-2014)the Cité de la Musique will also become the home of the Philharmonie de Paris. The Parc de la Villette is further infused with music through its numerous concert halls, including Le Zénith, Cabaret Sauvage, and Le Trabendo. These concert halls are the sites of shows that can accommodate any tastes. Beyond science and music the Parc de la Villette is also a great place to enjoy theater, not only through productions but also through acting workshops, at the Théâtre Parc-Villette. For the big screen there is also the Cinéma en plein air in addition to La Géode. The Cinéma en plein air is an open air movie theater that serves as the site of an annual film festival. Clearly the Parc de la Villette is far more than an ordinary park. A Paris apartment in the Nineteenth is an idea place from which to enjoy all of the attractions of the Parc de la Villette.

A Paris apartment in the Nineteenth is also pleasantly located near the Parc des Buttes Chaumont. This public garden is built around an island in the middle of a lake. The island itself ascends immediately into the sky. At the peak of the island’s cliffs is the Corinthian- style Sybil (temple) that is influenced by the ancient Roman Temple of Vesta. The park also contains a magnificent grotto which was created from an old limestone quarry. Inside the grotto is a cascading waterfall. Walks through the park are enhanced by the quarry, waterfall, cliffs, and vegetation. The vegetation in the park is especially pleasing because it includes numerous exotic Asian varieties. A relaxing walk through the park can be accompanied by a meal at one of the park’s three restaurants. For those lucky enough to be in Paris during September, the park also hosts the annual Silhouette Short Film Festival. This festival is a special treat not just for the movies, but also because it gives visitors the opportunity to visit the park at night. With such a beautiful park, who wouldn’t want a Paris apartment in the Nineteenth?
