Bastille Quarter & Opera
On July 14, 1789 the Bastille was stormed by the crowd of the neighbourhood. It was the beginning of the French Revolution. The square of the Bastille was created later, in 1803. The only monument still standing on the square is the Colonne de Juillet, the 52 meter high column honors the 504 victims during the 3 days of the revolution. The Bastille Opera building was opened in 1989, this building was meant to be a modern and democratic opera building, its auditorium seats 2700 people. The design by architect Carlos Ott, chosen from 750 entries in an international competition, contrasts starkly with its environment. In the surroundings of Bastille, you'll find art galleries rue de Charonne. And, on rue de Lappe, the most famous bals musette,"The Balajok". Just in the north of Bastille you will find the famous trendy area of Oberkampf, which is very similar to Williamsburg in Brooklyn or Shoreditch in London Book a bar for free in Paris around Bastille surroundings
