What a wonderful site for photos of my favourite city in the world.
These photos only go to prove how many modern architects can dehumanise our cities.
Baron Hausmann was a genius!!

This thread shows well how "Actual Paris" is way more interesting and beautiful than other some touristy places in Paris

Plus magique! Je ne m'attends pas pour les nouveaux photos - ben, comme d'habitude. Paris semble un peu different, pas comme de carte-postale. Il y a plusieurs lieux encore qui ne sont pas balayés

I agree. Some of Paris' most beautiful areas are outside of the touristy corridors and sections. I've heard 2 or 3 people tell me in person that they were dissappointed with Paris. When I asked them where they stayed and what they saw they usually mention the area around Montmartre/Moulin Rouge/Pigalle or Bastille which concentrate many of Paris budget hotels. Those are very touristy areas (ironically) despite them being quite unattractive and dirty areas. Some people return home with that specific image of Paris along with boring museum visits organized by tours (I love Museums when they show things I personally want to see like artifacts from Antiquity and the Middle Ages which I appreciate greatly but anyone who is dragged from museum to museum is likely to get bored and frustrated because it's almost forced, and that is what I mean by "boring" museums.)

Paris is more than the tourist traps and bus tours, people! That goes for any city that is very touristy

Well there is the Paris Syndrome which is quite well documented these days. That's the one where thousands of people come to visit Paris and go home disappointed. The main reason for it, is the romantic image that forms in their heads over their lifetime and when get finally get there, they find it dirty, smelly and crowded.

It's not that it is a particularly dirty or smelly city. It's just that in their romantic imaginations of the city, they don't take into account it is actually still a real, living, giant, working city.

I find Paris to be a very romantic city and I also love many other aspects of it, from the hustle and bustle so present in any major European city, to its architecture, smells, sights, infrastructure (well, for the most part), public transport etc. I don't particularly like Montmartre.

And I also generally like the Parisians and don't know why people complain so much about them.

They're the capital of a great nation, so they tend to be a little arrogant
Nothing special, most people of the capital tend to be a little obnoxious

I tend to agree with you. I personally love Paris.

But you are also from Europe and used to the dense and historical architecture. People from many other country's who don't have such history in their cities may not be prepared what this actually means. Not all historical buildings are palaces and many of the older buildings are of course quite pokey and small and crumbling at the edges. Afterall, they are old.
