  • At the beginning of the 20th century in the dormitory the Bateau-lavoir (floating Quay) lived the most talented artists of the time. Picasso in 1907, created here his work "Avignon girls". A large part of the dormitory was destroyed by fire in the early 1970s. Now here's workshops young artists. You cannot get inside. Nearby, the small square in the heat can be rested in the shade of a tree near the fountain.

  • Once in this House full of Bohemian life-Picasso, Akhmatova, Modigliani, Matisse, Mofra and other great people lived or visited here. Appalling conditions-one water faucet on all heating stoves-burzhuek, creaking floors, lack of electricity and gas-do not hinder the work. However, in 1970, receiving laundry "burned almost to ashes, stayed only a facade on the Piazza of Émile-Goudeau, where curious installation (after the fire House was rebuilt of concrete).

  • It is a place where at various times stayed such famous personalities as Picasso, Akhmatova, Appooliner, while still quite poor and unrecognised; i.e., this House was advertised as housing for the poor artists, etc. Is located in Montmartre, on the lively square with cafes, street artists.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
