Paris, France: walking around/Прогулка по Парижу

Let's go to Paris, it's faster by train than by car. Much faster, almost 200 mph.

Поехали в Париж. На поезде. Быстро едет.



We have arrived.

Приехали.
 The streets are washed every day.

Улицы по утрам помыты.

Гостиница ничего так.

The hotel is nice.

 View from the window and a mini-balcony.

Вид из окна и мини-балкона.
 But let's not sit around and let's go explore the city. Paris is a nice place in general, and it is especially nice for those who like hiking. All the main sites are within a walking distance. One would have to walk several miles, but even the walk is worth it, weather permitting.

Но не будем рассиживаться и поедем смотреть достопримечательности. Для любителей ходить пешком Париж подходит потому что здесь все рядом. Станции метро находятся недалеко друг от друга, поэтому если погода позволяет и есть желание, то до всех достопримечательностей можно дойти пешком.
The Eiffel Tower.

Проходим мимо Эйфелевой башни.
Street signs.

Такие указатели улиц.
The Arc de Triomphe. It's been here for almost 200 years.

Триумфальная арка. Стоит тут уже почти 200 лет.
Very elaborate work.

Массивная конструкция.
 Moving along.

 Идем дальше.
The city has lots of historic monuments from different times, mostly from Napoleon though.

В городе много старинных памятников. В основном из эпохи Наполеона.
The state buildings and schools have the French motto written on them, which is "Freedom, Equality, Brotherhood."

На административных учреждениях и школах написан французский девиз: "Свобода, Равенство, Братство".
Streets.

Улицы.



A church. Let's come inside.

Церковь. Зайдем.
Classical pipe organ.

Классический орган.
This is the King's seat.

А вот это ложа короля.
The Statue of Liberty.

Статуя Свободы.
Opera

Опера

Lunch

Обед
Subway stations are marked with such "Metro" signs on the surface. It is sometimes hard to see them.

Станции метро на поверхности обозначают вот такими столбами. Их иногда не очень заметно.
Subway is nice. Stations all look pretty much the same.

В метро ничего так. Все станции мало чем отличаются друг от друга.
And here is the train.

А вот и поезд.
The street market.

Рынок на улице.

At night on the hour the Eiffel Tower sparkles. Looks pretty.

По вечерам каждый час Эйфелева Башня красиво сверкает.
