With a population of almost 19,000, the Jardin des Plantes district is a particularly lively part of Paris and a great place to live. The green spaces near the Seine exude calm and relaxation. Particularly popular with families, a lot of Parisians also come here to take a walk with friends. Close to the student life of the Latin Quarter, the streets around Jardin des Plantes are located between Boulevard Saint-Marcel and the Seine. As it is close to the Jussieu campus and La Sorbonne, the district retains a student feel. Tourists and Parisians also enjoy the middle eastern charm of the Grande Mosquée de Paris.
