Nation Apartments

Nation, the heart of eastern Paris

For a vacation in a less touristy area of Paris, Nation is a quiet but lively district, with apartments within easy reach of the center of the capital. A former entrance in the Mur des Fermiers Généraux (Wall of the Farmers-General) used for the collection of taxes on goods entering the city, the square was renamed Place du Trône Renversé during the Revolution, and then Place de la Nation for the celebration of the first national holiday on July 14th 1880.

From administration to nigtlife

Around Nation there are several administrative areas of Paris: the Sainte-Marguerite district to the north, a corner of Paris with few tourists but fairly popular for its nightlife. Many arts and crafts workshops have been converted into lofts popular among the bourgeois bohemian population. To the south, the Picpus and Bel-Air districts were once part of the Saint-Mandé commune before being annexed by Paris in 1860. Nation Place de la Nation provides a real breath of fresh air in the middle of the capital.

Interesting things to see around

Connected to Bastille by Faubourg Saint-Honoré, it is packed with symbols like the central bronze statue: the Triomphe de la République, an allegory showing the spirit of freedom guiding the chariot of universal suffrage. Justice and labor are also represented. In the direction of Vincennes, you can see the monumental Barrière du Trône erected for the collection of taxes. These columns are topped with statues of Philip II Augustus and Saint Louis. You can walk through the little back streets or take the long, illuminated boulevards to the Seine, the Bastille, or Vincennes.
