English Île-de-France

The Île-de-France (, French: [il də fʁɑ̃s] (listen); literally "Isle of France") is the most populous of the eighteen regions of France. Centred around the capital Paris, it is located in the north-central part of the country and often called the Région Parisienne ("Paris Region"). Île-de-France is densely populated and retains a prime economic position on the national stage: though it covers only 12,012 square kilometres (4,638 square miles), about 2% of metropolitan French territory, its estimated 2020 population of 12,278,210 was nearly one-fifth of the national total; its economy accounts for nearly one-third of the French gross domestic product.The region is made up of eight administrative departments: Paris, Essonne, Hauts-de-Seine, Seine-Saint-Denis, Seine-et-Marne, Val-de-Marne, Val-d'Oise and Yvelines. It was created as the "District of the Paris Region" in 1961. In 1976, its status was aligned with the French administrative regions that were created in 1972, it was renamed after the historic province of Île-de-France. Residents are sometimes referred to as Franciliens, an administrative word created in the 1980s. The GDP of the region in 2018 was €734 billion (or US$866 billion at market exchange rates). It has the highest per capita GDP of any French region and the third highest of any region in the European Union. In 2018, nearly all of the twenty-eight French companies listed in the Fortune Global 500 were based in the Île-de-France.Beyond the city limits of Paris, the region has many other important historic sites, including the palaces of Versailles and Fontainebleau, as well as the most-visited tourist attraction in France, Disneyland Paris. Though it is the richest French region, a significant number of residents live in poverty: the official poverty rate in the Île-de-France was 15.9% in 2015. The region has witnessed increasing income inequality in recent decades and rising housing prices have pushed the less affluent outside Paris.

German Île-de-France

Die Île-de-France [il dəˈfʀɑ̃s] ist eine Region in Nordfrankreich, die größtenteils mit dem Ballungsraum Paris identisch ist und deshalb auch als Agglomeration Paris bezeichnet wird. Die Region besteht aus der Stadt Paris (mit der Ordnungsnummer 75) und den Départements Essonne (91), Hauts-de-Seine (92), Seine-et-Marne (77), Seine-Saint-Denis (93), Val-d’Oise (95), Val-de-Marne (94) und Yvelines (78). Sie hat eine Fläche von 12.012 km² und 12.326.429 Einwohner (Stand: Januar 2021). Bedeutende Städte neben Paris, das auch Verwaltungssitz der Region ist, sind Versailles, Boulogne-Billancourt, Montreuil, Argenteuil und Saint-Denis. Die Einwohner werden Franciliens genannt. Das Département mit der Ordnungszahl 75 bildet die Kernstadt, die Départements 92, 93 und 94 bilden die Petite Couronne (1. innerer Vorortgürtel) und die Départements 77, 78, 91 und 95 die Grande Couronne (2. äußerer Vorortgürtel).

Der Name Île-de-France (dt. Insel Frankreichs) wird heute meist mit der Lage zwischen den Flüssen Seine, Marne, Oise und Beuvronne erklärt, von denen das Gebiet wie eine Insel umschlossen wird. Womöglich geht der Name aber auch auf eine altfränkische Bezeichnung Liddle Franke, also „Kleinfranken“ oder „Kleinfrankreich“ zurück. Als Zone d’études et d’aménagement du territoire und NUTS-1-Region heißt sie heute auch Région parisienne („Pariser Region“).

Die verbreitetsten Dialekte in der Île-de-France sind Champenois und Francien.

cs Île-de-France

Île-de-France (česky Francouzský ostrov) je jeden z 18 administrativních regionů Francie, v jejichž rámci se svou rozlohou řadí až na 12. místo (menší jsou pouze Korsika, Alsasko a zámořské regiony Réunion, Guadeloupe, Martinik a Mayotte), z hlediska počtu obyvatel se však Île-de-France nachází na místě prvním. Leží v severní části země a zahrnuje hlavní město Paříž – představuje tak de facto jeho metropolitní oblast. Dnešní region vznikl v roce 1976, nahradil předcházející pařížský region (francouzsky Région Parisienne), původní název však mnoho lidí používá ještě dnes.

French Île-de-France

L'Île-de-France (/il də fʁɑ̃s/) est une région historique et administrative française. Il s'agit d'une région très fortement peuplée, qui représente à elle seule 18,8 % de la population de la France métropolitaine sur seulement 2,2 % de sa superficie, ce qui en fait la région la plus peuplée (12,12 millions d'habitants en 2016) et la plus densément peuplée (1 006 hab/km2) de France. Ses habitants sont appelés les Franciliens. Parfois désignée improprement comme la « région parisienne », elle est fortement centralisée sur l'agglomération parisienne, qui s'étend sur 23,7 % de la surface régionale, mais où habite 88,6 % de sa population. L'aire urbaine de Paris (qui correspond à la notion de bassin d'emploi) recouvre, quant à elle, la quasi-totalité de la superficie francilienne et des portions de régions limitrophes.

Avec un PIB estimé à 642 milliards d'euros et un PIB par habitant de 55 227 euros en 2015, c'est la région qui produit le plus de richesses en France. L'Île-de-France est également un pôle européen de premier ordre puisque c'est la deuxième région européenne pour le produit intérieur brut (PIB) comparé selon la méthode dite « à parité de pouvoir d'achat » (PPA), juste derrière la Rhénanie-du-Nord-Westphalie, et la sixième région d'Europe selon le PIB par habitant (PPA), derrière la région métropolitaine de Prague en République tchèque, mais devant les Southern and Eastern (Dublin) en Irlande.

La région est limitrophe de cinq autres régions françaises : les Hauts-de-France, au nord, le Grand Est, à l'est, la Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, au sud-est, le Centre-Val de Loire, au sud-ouest, et la Normandie, à l'ouest.

Paris Observatory

The Paris Observatory (French: Observatoire de Paris [ɔbsɛʁvatwaʁ də paʁi]), a research institution of the Paris Sciences et Lettres University, is the foremost astronomical observatory of France, and one of the largest astronomical centres in the world. Its historic building is on the Left Bank of the Seine in central Paris, but most of the staff work on a satellite campus in Meudon, a suburb southwest of Paris.

The Paris Observatory was founded in 1667. Construction was completed by the early 1670s and coincided with a major push for increased science, and the founding of the Royal Academy of Sciences. King Louis XIV's minister of finance organized a "scientific powerhouse" to increase understanding of astronomy, maritime navigation, and science in general.Through the centuries the Paris Observatory has continued in support of astronomical activities, and in the 21st century connects multiple sites and organizations, supporting astronomy and science, past and present.

Rive Gauche

La Rive Gauche (French pronunciation: ​[la ʁiv ɡoʃ], The Left Bank) is the southern bank of the river Seine in Paris. Here the river flows roughly westward, cutting the city in two: when facing downstream, the southern bank is to the left, and the northern bank (or Rive Droite) is to the right.

"Rive Gauche" or "Left Bank" generally refers to the Paris of an earlier era: the Paris of artists, writers, and philosophers, including Colette, Margaret Anderson, Djuna Barnes, Natalie Barney, Sylvia Beach, Erik Satie, Kay Boyle, Bryher, Caresse Crosby, Nancy Cunard, Hilda Doolittle (H.D.), Janet Flanner, Jane Heap, Maria Jolas, Mina Loy, Henry Miller, Adrienne Monnier, Anaïs Nin, Jean Rhys, Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, Renee Vivien, Edith Wharton Pablo Picasso, Arthur Rimbaud, Paul Verlaine, Henri Matisse, Jean-Paul Sartre, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, James Baldwin, and dozens of other members of the great artistic community at Montparnasse. The phrase implies a sense of bohemianism, counterculture, and creativity. Some of its famous streets are the Boulevard Saint-Germain, the Boulevard Saint-Michel, the rue Bonaparte, and the Rue de Rennes.

The Latin Quarter is a Left Bank area in the 5th and 6th arrondissements in the vicinity of the University of Paris. In the twelfth century, the philosopher Pierre Abélard helped create the neighborhood when, due to his controversial teaching, he was pressured into relocating from the prestigious Île de la Cité to a less conspicuous residence. As he and his followers populated the Left Bank, it became famous for the prevalence of scholarly Latin spoken there. The area's origin story formed the basis of the saying, "Paris 'learned to think' on the Left Bank."

Gare de Denfert-Rochereau

Gare de Denfert-Rochereau is a railway station in Paris. It was one of the first stations of the French railway network, and is still in use as a station of Paris' RER line B.

Built from 1842 and opened on 7 June 1846, the station building had a circular shape as it possessed a rail loop. Indeed, the station was the Parisian terminus of a line from Sceaux. This Ligne de Sceaux system, named "Arnoux" (after its inventor), was abandoned at the end of the 19th century as it required the construction of specific engines capable of travelling on very tight curves and broad gauge tracks of 1,750 mm (5 ft 8 7⁄8 in). The line was extended to the Gare du Luxembourg in 1895, with the newly created Port-Royal station along the way. The line was operated by the Chemin de Fer de Paris à Orléans until 1937 when the Compagnie du Chemin de Fer Métropolitain de Paris (CMP) (predecessor of the RATP) took over. It became line B of the RER in 1977 on being extended to meet line A at Châtelet – Les Halles.

It was quickly augmented by private collections, sometimes seized by the state. Many fine additions were made in short order, and by 1814 the museum contained about 100,000 samples at the Hotel de Mouchy. During the 19th century and early 20th century it continued to acquire excellent collections from around the world, interrupted for several decades by World War II, but then resuming.

The Kiss

The Kiss (in Romanian: Sărutul /səruːtul/) is a sculpture by Romanian Modernist sculptor Constantin Brâncuși. It is an early example of his proto-cubist style of non-literal representation.

This plaster was exhibited at the 1913 Armory Show and published in the Chicago Tribune of 25 March 1913. This early plaster sculpture is one of six casts that Brancusi made of the 1907–08 The Kiss.

VersionsThe original stone carving is at Craiova Art Museum, in Romania.

Brâncuși created many versions of The Kiss, further simplifying geometric forms and sparse objects in each version, tending each time further toward abstraction. His abstract style emphasizes simple geometrical lines that balance forms inherent in his materials with the symbolic allusions of representational art. Here, the shape of the original block of material is maintained. Another version of The Kiss serves as an adornment of a tomb in Montparnasse cemetery in Paris, France but has since August 2017 been covered up in a box. Another version still can be seen at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.This version of The Kiss is one of the artist's most well known works, along with Sleeping Muse (1908), Prometheus (1911), Mademoiselle Pogany (1913), The Newborn (1915), Bird in Space (1919) and The Column of the Infinite (Coloana infinitului), known as The Endless Column (1938).

At the same time the remaining section of line 10 was extended from the new station of Cardinal Lemoine to Jussieu. The station is under and named after the Place Jussieu, which was named after the De Jussieu family of famous botanists and historians of the natural world, several of whom have been associated with the nearby Jardin des Plantes.

A terminal loop was provided at the station for trains to turn around to return north towards Porte de Clignancourt. Passengers used to disembark at the arrival platform and then the train proceeded empty via the loop to the departure platform.

The extension to Mairie de Montrouge modified the layout of the station, the northbound platform was extended toward the track coming from the former terminal loop to add a new entrance.

Along with Place des Fêtes, a prototype air raid shelter was added to the station in 1935 to protect it from chemical attacks and was fitted with airtight doors to allow the people to take refuge inside in the event of an attack. They were chosen due to their proximity to the heavily populated, working-class districts. Early plans to extend line 14 from Olympiades to the Orly Airport included the possibility of taking over the existing line 7 branch from this station to Villejuif – Louis Aragon, which opened in the early-1980s. However, the inclusion of line 14 in the Grand Paris Express project means that the line 14 extension to Orly will only consist of new infrastructure.

Pont de Sully
