Paris overview

Paris (French pronunciation: ​[paʁi] (About this sound listen)) is the capital and most populous city of France, with an area of 105 square kilometres (41 square miles) and a population of 2,206,488.[5][6] With 200,000 inhabitants in 1328, Paris, then already the capital of France, was the most populous city of Europe. By comparison, London in 1300 had 80,000 inhabitants.[7] Since the 17th century, Paris has been one of Europe's major centres of finance, commerce, fashion, science, music, and painting. The Paris Region had a GDP of €681 billion (US$850 billion) in 2016, accounting for 31 per cent of the GDP of France.[8] In 2013–2014, the Paris Region had the third-highest GDP in the world and the largest regional GDP in the EU. According to the Economist Intelligence Unit Worldwide Cost of Living Survey in 2018, Paris was the second-most expensive city in the world, behind Singapore and ahead of Zurich, Hong Kong, Oslo and Geneva.[9]

The City of Paris's administrative limits form an East-West oval centred on the island at its historical heart, the Île de la Cité; this island is near the top of an arc of the river Seine that divides the city into southern Rive Gauche (Left Bank) and northern Rive Droite regions. Paris is the core of a built-up area that extends well beyond its limits: commonly referred to as the agglomération Parisienne, and statistically as a unité urbaine (a measure of urban area), the Paris agglomeration's 2013 population of 10,601,122 made it the largest urban area in the European Union.[3][not in citation given] City-influenced commuter activity reaches well beyond even this in a statistical aire urbaine de Paris (a measure of metropolitan area), that had a 2013 population of 12,405,426,[10] a number one-fifth the population of France,[11] the largest metropolitan area in the Eurozone.

The city is a major rail, highway, and air-transport hub served by two international airports: Paris-Charles de Gaulle (the second busiest airport in Europe after London Heathrow Airport with 69.5 million passengers in 2017) and Paris-Orly.[12][13] Opened in 1900, the city's subway system, the Paris Métro, serves 5.23 million passengers daily,[14] and is the second busiest metro system in Europe after Moscow Metro. Paris's Gare du Nord is one of the ten busiest railway stations in the world, with 262 million passengers in 2015.[15]

Paris is especially known for its museums and architectural landmarks: the Louvre was the most visited art museum in the world in 2017, with 8.1 million visitors.[16][17] The Musée d'Orsay and Musée de l'Orangerie are noted for their collections of French Impressionist art, and the Pompidou Centre Musée National d'Art Moderne has the largest collection of modern and contemporary art in Europe. The historical district along the Seine in the city centre is classified as a UNESCO Heritage Site. Popular landmarks in the centre of the city include the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris and the Gothic royal chapel of Sainte-Chapelle, both on the Île de la Cité; the Eiffel Tower, constructed for the Paris Universal Exposition of 1889; the Grand Palais and Petit Palais, built for the Paris Universal Exposition of 1900; the Arc de Triomphe on the Champs-Élysées, and the Basilica of Sacré-Coeur on the hill of Montmartre. Paris received 23 million visitors in 2017, measured by hotel stays, with the largest numbers of foreign visitors coming from the United States, the UK, Germany and China.[18][19] It was ranked as the third most visited travel destination in the world in 2017, after Bangkok and London.[20]

The football club Paris Saint-Germain and the rugby union club Stade Français are based in Paris. The 80,000-seat Stade de France, built for the 1998 FIFA World Cup, is located just north of Paris in the neighbouring commune of Saint-Denis. Paris hosts the annual French Open Grand Slam tennis tournament on the red clay of Roland Garros. Paris hosted the Olympic Games in 1900, 1924 and will host the 2024 Summer Olympics. The 1938 and 1998 FIFA World Cups, the 2007 Rugby World Cup, and the 1960, 1984, and 2016 UEFA European Championships were also held in the city and, every July, the Tour de France bicycle race finishes there.

Stream Best Friend's Ass here: https://dvlm.lnk.to/BestFriendsAss Probably one of the most anticipated music videos of the year, having fans and media speculating after Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian snapped videos of the shoot to their tens of millions of social media followers. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike dropped their high-profile single alongside Paris Hilton called ‘Best Friend's Ass’ earlier in the month, and now fans can see the action in full. Kim Kardashian-West leads a star-studded crowd joined by Youtubers Nikita Dragun & Juanpa Zurita, a host of previous Ru-Paul contestants including Derrick Barry and Nebraska, singer-songwriter Chester Lockhart and arguably the most famous UFC fighter of all time, Chuck Liddell, professional prankster Vitaly and many more in a crazy cast that clocks up about 200 million followers on Instagram. Written by Dimitri Vegas himself and directed by Charlotte Rutherford, the video is a satiric look on today’s VIP clubbing and social media life. When two fake Instagram-models enter the club and put on their “Insta-Goggles’, they transport themselves into a world of wild parties and beautiful people” popping bottles”, “ballin’” and “making it rain” – while the viewer can see what’s really going on in a world of selfies, filters, fake followers and likes… sound familiar?
