Strasbourg St Denis
Strasbourg Saint Denis, a changing, cosmopolitan district This district is a place where different cultures meet the Parisian environment. You can rent an apartment in an exotic location, somewhere between India, China, and Turkey. A cosmopolitan area of Paris A stone's throw from the Grands Boulevards, the Strasbourg Saint Denis district is bordered by Rue d’Hauteville, Faubourg Strasbourg Saint Denis, Boulevard Bonne Nouvelle, and Rue de Paradis. A symbol of cultural diversity, the Strasbourg Saint Denis district is without a doubt one of the areas of Paris that has seen the greatest influx of foreign nationals. Turkish, Pakistani, Greek, and Chinese people live side by side. Rue de Château d’Eau, a few hundred yards away, is predominantly African. Such diversity gives the district a specific charm, where traditional stores, Afro hair salons, ethnic restaurants, and little souvenir stores stand side by side. Currently undergoing redevelopment, the district has recently attracted families and bourgeois bohemian types with the reasonable rents. Trendy restaurants and bars are setting up, and the district is well on the way to becoming an extension of Rue Montorgueil, a true village in the center of Paris. Strasbourg Saint Denis, a home base for your visit A working class, commercial district, Strasbourg Saint Denis is not actually a cultural site. However, it does have the advantage of being fairly central, making it easy to get to the adjoining districts of the Grands Boulevards, Châtelet les Halles, Gare de l’Est, Gare du Nord, and even Opéra. Things to see in Strasbourg Saint Denis include the Rex, a legendary movie theater. Constructed in 1931, the oldest movie theater in Paris is also the most spectacular with 3,300 seats. Rue du Faubourg Saint Denis, a former royal route, is also home to Porte Saint Denis, constructed in 1672 to celebrate the victories of Louis XIV. At Saint-Denis – Porte de Paris metro station, you can also discover the two triumphal arches dating back to 1670. During your tour, don't miss Rue de Paradis, a street that has been dedicated to glassware, pottery, and porcelain for many years. You will also encounter a lot of little passageways, some of them with unusual little stores.
