Pompidou Centre

The Centre Georges Pompidou is a fitting legacy of a French President.

Although not the usual kind of tourist attraction, you definitely must not lose the occasion of exploring the Centre Georges Pompidou. The first thing that strikes the visitor is the visibility of all the utilities pipes on the outside the building, instead of being hidden inside the rooms’ walls or ceiling.

Their variety of colors offers a unique spectacle in its kind. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg, because once you get inside, it takes a lot of time to see only a fraction of what the Centre has to offer.

If you are fond of the contemporary and modern artists and their creations, at the Musee National d’Arte Moderne, sheltered here, you can admire some of the most exquisite works. Matisse, Miro, Giacometti are only a few of the 20th century’s prominent personalities whose masterpieces are displayed in the collections of the mentioned museum.

At the second and third level of the building one of the largest libraries in the world is located. With its over 2 million books, written in almost all spoken languages of the Earth, it shelters an immense treasure of knowledge, whose value is incalculable.
