Marshals street (rue des Maréchaux) is a pedestrian street located in the Old city of Nancy. It owes its fame to the specificity of having a high density of restaurants. This is why the locals gave it the nickname gourmet street, rue gourmande in french.
Probably I think I spend money most in the life there. It is small store, but it is a sophisticated one. Especially there are good books of art and design. I go there four or five times a week. I wish they make the reward card!
This is the rooftop of my building. I come up here daily with my dog or friends to get 'fresh' air, see what's happening in the streets, or to catch sunsets and the occasional sunrise. My landlord has been trying for months to put a stop to our rooftop access, but every attempt he has made thus far has been futile.
National Science and Natural History Museum National Academy Sciences of Ukraine – one of the largest natural history science museums in the world. Established in 1966, the museum is situated in the heart of Kiev, in old house with an expressive architecture. More than 30 thousand exhibits that tell story about the origin, structure and evolution of the Earth, its flora and fauna, its past and present, about history of material culture of tribes and peoples who inhabited the territory of Ukraine. Super place, where you can learn a lot about the history and take picture of girls in a cave.
The Barbican Estate is a residential estate that was built during the 1960s and the 1980s. An icon of Brutalist Architecture the Barbican Estate is an unique and complex real life experiment; a city within a city. The main focal point of the estate is the lake and its neighbouring terrace. High above and behind the terrace is the Barbican Centre, the largest performing arts centre in Europe. I really rate their visual culture exhibitions (for instance, Jean-Michel Basquiat and the Bauhaus) and live concerts (Nils Frahm and Ryoji Ikeda). Love it!
It’s wonderful to get lost in the residential areas of the South side of the city. It is commonly known for being the wealthier side of the river and often faces some criticism for this. There are incredible buildings and I enjoy looking into the houses and seeing how the residents live.
CAP Beauty has reached a cult-like status amongst New Yorkers who try to live their lives a little more like Gwyneth Paltrow, and a little less like Lindsay Lohan circa 2007. But you don’t have to be a health nut to appreciate the natural beauty store’s mission to bring a carefully selected range of products and brands that are actually kind to our bodies to consumers.
Delicious Japanese izakaya awaits behind the frosted windows. Their uni risotto and seared foie gras are decadent, and the truffles & organic mushrooms cream udon is out of this world. Reservations are a must.
Climb your way up the escalators to the 9th floor of the Printemps department store (the Beauté & Maison building) for possibly one of the best panoramic views of Paris. You can see pretty much everything from here and unlike the views from the Eiffel Tower you’re right in the middle of the city and can almost reach out and touch the monuments around you. Go up on a sunny afternoon and take a seat on one of the benches, lay down on the fake grass lawn or have a drink and a snack at the Deli-Ciel café.
Planten un Blomen, it's a beautiful botanical garden in Hamburg, Mitte.
Lot of spots where to sit and watching quietly the nature as well as a lot of path to walk. The Japanese garden is a place must to see as well as the Glass House of the tropical pants.
