District 12

If you go the 12th district from the Square of Bastille, the first thing you will see – a long wall with the arches with small artisan shops where masters spun carpets just near you. The wall stretches for a mile, and here you can see a lot of interesting things. The area lasts up to the borders of Paris – Bois de Vincennes. There are many parks in the district, as well as one of the richest European Zoos – Zoo de Vincennes (53 avenue de Saint-Maurice, metro station – Porte Doree) and, of course, Chateau de Vincennes.
