Monmartre/Монмартр

Monmartre is a hill north of Paris that gives its name to the surrounding district. This place is famous for its night life as well as for many historic landmarks. The most visible landmark is the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, a beautiful church located on the hill.

Монмартр это холм на севере Парижа, который также дал имя прилегающему району. Это место знаменито своей ночной жизнью, а также многочисленными историческими памятниками. Базилика Святого Сердца Парижа является самым заметным памятником. Это действующая церковь, которая находится на холме Монмартр.

This place has a stunning view of Paris.

Отсюда открывается красивый вид на Париж.

But let's walk around this district. Life does not stop here at night; rather opposite: it gets busier. Many restaurants and shop open their doors. The streets are narrow so numerous visitors may get shoved in the store by crowds. But it's a nice place to walk around.

Но пройдемся по району. Здесь вся активность начинается к вечеру. Открываются рестораны и магазины. Улицы неширокие, поэтому иногда можно поневоле оказаться заброшенным в магазин очередной волной проходящих мимо людей. Но походить здесь стоит.

Here, for example, this board claims that on March 30, 1814, cossacks used the word "bistro" the first time. Russian cossacks conquered Paris around that time (Napoleon attacked Russia first), and when they took over Paris they apparently ate here quite a bit. The word "bystro" in Russian language means "fast," so they were just asking for a faster service. But the word "bistro" now

На этой памятно доске написано что слово "бистро" здесь было применено в отношении заведения питания казаками 30-го марта 1814-го года.



This place, besides being a cafe with a pretty high satisfaction factor, is a famous place where artists used to hang out.

Вот это место, например, помимо кафе с хорошими отзывами довольных посетителей, еще и знаменито тем, что тут тусовались знаменитые представители богемы.


This is a memorial to a singer named Dalida.

Это памятник певице Далиде.

And this is a sculpture by Jean Marais (a very famous French actor), it's called "A man walking through a wall". It is devoted to a writer named Marcel Aymé.

А это скульптура работы Жана Марэ, называется "Человек, проходящий сквозь стену". Посвящена писателю Марселю Эме.

And this is a view at the the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris from the southern borders of Monmartre.

А это вид на Базилику Святого Сердца с южных границ Монмартра.
