Cabaret Aux Trois Mailletz

les trois mailletz

What is Paris? You may say: a touristic mecca, cultural heart of Europe, fantastic architecture… Maybe. But believe us, first of all Paris is the freedom of spirit, mood which you have to feel and plug into it keeping good company!

Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysees, Les Invalides and others of that ilk – that’s fine, but you need something more to make the picture complete. :-)

Wanna joy and fun? Move to the places where this is not just the words, but a true philosophy and meaning of life. We would like to introduce such a place to you. Cabaret Aux Trois Mailletz!

Napoleon height – centuries old illusion

Napoleon's height

Probably, some of us imagine the famous French Emperor Napoleon as a small and short man standing on a special pedestal and watching the battle field. No wonder, because it was considered for a long time that Bonaparte had a height of 157 centimetres.

However, according to the information, found in memoirs of Emperor’s valet (he definitely had to know it about the sovereign), the height of Napoleon was “5 pied 2 pouce and 3 lines” – 169 centimetres in current calculation. And that’s a different story, so long as it was height above the average European men of that time.
