"Reims" Reims by Lalique

Reims Travel Guide: 306 reviews and 963 photos

Reims was a second French city after Paris in our France trip, though we stopped there only for a few hours, thus can't tell you a lot. However among the MUSTs - visit <FONT COLOR="FF33CC">Notre Dame</FONT>, beautiful architecture! A lot of my friends, who never been to Paris looking at a snap of Reims Notre Dame were exclaiming: "Ahhh! I didn't know that Notre Dame de Paris is so beautiful!" The next moment I showed them a real snap of Notre Dame de Paris and the comparison obviously wasn't in favour of the latter (sorry Parisians, but it's true!).
Beautiful stained-glass windows inside! There is the one which was painted by Mark Chagall, there is his biography as well, but what got me upset was inaccuracy describing his place of birth, which state that he was born in Vitebsk - "a small Belorussian village", pardon me! But it's not that small! Nowadays the population is about 1,5 mln and it's the 4th city in Belorussia, several years ago it celebrated it's 10 century anniversary.
