Vive La France
The French celebrate their independence day on July 14.
On this day in 1789, the medieval fortress and prison known as the Bastille was stormed and was the flashpoint of the French Revolution. Known as "Bastille Day", this national holiday is celebrated with fireworks, great food, but also with the largest Military Parade in all of Europe.
The Bastille Day Military Parade
begins on the morning of the 14th and has been since 1880. It features cadets from the Ecole Polytechnique, Saint-Cyr, Ecolde Navale and other infantry troops, motorized troops, and so much more. The ground and sky are full of color, to pay homage to Bastille Day.
These days, the French still flood the streets of this neighborhood in search of new entertainment, in form of food, drinks, or new artistry. With five metro lines converging at Republic and three others at Bastille, the young and fun seeking crowds have easy access to this center point of nightlife action.
If your plans are to become a Parisian this summer, bring your
with you. A single ticket to the
Bastille Opera House
will cost around 118 euro. A visit to the
Maison de Victor Hugo
or other local museums will vary in price. After, Rue de Lappe will have plenty of bars and Rue de la Roquette will have an array of dinning options for your indulging pleasures.
