  • The 16th arrondissement is the most West of the capital, side right bank of the Seine. It is the green lung of the West of Paris with the vast Bois de Boulogne, which has many places of interest. To the North are, the Jardin d'Acclimatation, La Foundation Louis Vuitton, the Bagatelle Park. This part is served by the metro station "Les Sablons" line n ° 1, located approximately 600 m. Longchamp Racecourse is on the West end near the Seine. In the center of the wood, we can go see the said Lake below and the garden of the Pre Catelan, then the Serres d'Auteuil. The Hippodrome d'Auteuil is at the South of the wood end. This district is then enclosed in a large meander of the river Seine, between the East side in Paris right bank and the West boundary with the municipalities of Puteaux, Suresnes, and St. Cloud. The bois de Boulogne is a creation of Napoleon III, who in 1860, wanted to equip the new Paris, extended with its 20 districts of green spaces. It occupies part of the former forest of Rouvray, so named because only planted with Oaks, quejigos. Facilities date from this time, to create workplaces in the style of English gardens. Wood is traversed by roads and tracks, as well as footpaths and cycle tracks. During the creation of the borough under Haussmann in 1860, the communes of Passy and Auteuil are integrated. The wall of the farmers-General, is shot down and channels are expanded, including Victor Hugo and Kléber avenues. Haussmann also creates the Avenue Mozart to serve as a link between the North and the South of the borough which is Auteuil. The rest of the borough in its part is, is very bourgeois with large shaded avenues, plush buildings, many of which are "Haussmannien" style. This district has nearly 155,000 inhabitants. In addition, we find places of interest such as: the Chaillot Palace with superb gardens of Trocadéro, and their impressive waterjets, facing the Eiffel Tower. In this space of "Art Déco" style there are: the Museum of man, in the West Wing, the National Museum of the Navy in the West Pavilion, the city of Architecture and heritage, in the Pavilion is, and finally the aquarium of Paris in the garden. To the North, visit the inevitable Arc of triumph of the star and its place, that he shares with the 8th district as well as the Avenue Marceau, which is the limit is. The Palais de Tokyo, Museum of Contemporary Art, is located at no. 13 avenue Pdt Wilson, on the edge of the Seine, and hosts many exhibitions; Located in the eastern part of the Palace, the Museum of Modern Art of the city of Paris, which dates back to 1961. The style of the building is monumental, simple and uncluttered with clean lines, the basins and the sculptures. This museum is dedicated to contemporary creation in all its forms: painting, sculpture, etc. The collections present the various currents of the art of the 20th century: School of Paris, Cubism, abstraction, new realism... Thus, one can admire the works of Pablo Picasso, of Henri Matisse, Alberto Giacometti, Georges Braque, etc... Not very far in the No. 6 place of Jena, the superb present many works of Asian art Guimet Museum. I go there a few times and it's always with rapture I discovered old works from including the old Indochina. Finally in the same area, you can visit the Galliera Museum at no. 10 avenue Pierre Ier de Serbia, which in a great Palace and sumptuous decorations, is the Museum of the city of Paris fashion. Maison de Radio France, is located at no. 116 avenue President Kennedy. It is round in shape with a central building and in 1963. It can be visited and many concerts are held throughout the year in the auditorium. The concerts are always quality with prestigious elements, into rooms and good-quality audio. For lovers of remarkable building, there are the No. 14 Street Jean la Fontaine, West of the Radio House, a building in style "Art Nouveau" of beauty from 1895. For football fans, the Parc des Princes is in the southern part of the district near the door of St. Cloud; Same next door, we find the Pierre de Coubertin Stadium and the Tennis Club of Paris to no. 82 avenue Georges Lafont. These places are served by the metro station "Door of St. Cloud" line no. 9 the neighborhood of Passy, who was a village on a hill overlooking the River, before its integration into Paris under Napoleon III in 1860, is very much alive. Its streets are shopping including the Passy Street with many shops and market covered, in a relaxed atmosphere. But this place is not very touristy, even if we find a little "Village" atmosphere, with still a few cobblestone streets. Along the Seine side Paris, it is pleasant to walk on the docks, including the quai Louis Blériot and the Mirabeau bridge. Further we can admire the statue of liberty in its version reduced to the level of the bridge of Grenelle and hang out on the island in the Swans with his shady driveway. Further to the centre of Paris, the Bir Hakeim bridge at two levels, to have a view of the Eiffel Tower and the gardens of Trocadéro. It has a lovely romantic space where the newlyweds "make pictures". The subway, which passes over the top of the bridge, has its "Passy" side right bank station, line no. 6. The borough is largely served by the metro and the RER C, which goes through the House of Radio and then runs along the bois de Boulogne.
