  • At the entrance to the place of the Nation, you will first see the two columns of the throne and its two booths created in 1797 by the architect Claude Nicolas Ledoux. They formed a barrier of grant at the entrance to the course of Vincennes. In 1845, two statues of Philippe Auguste, and St. Louis have been added to their Summit. You can see all the sculptures on these columns as well as the booths. These columns have been classified at the Historical Monuments in 1907. Then the place of the Nation itself, is on the sculpted group "The triumph of the Republic" of the sculptor Jules Dale inaugurated in 1899. You can see in detail all the characters and the fineness of the sculptures. Look at the pictures. Come by metro, station "Nation".

  • The square itself is not worth a visit. However, it is a focal point of Parisian roads and ball of the various subway lines that can reach almost every point. The area is also excellent for stay given that at night it's pretty quiet and there are several bars and restaurants.

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.
