Dijon is one of the most attractive for tourists cities in France. It is known not only its graceful buildings of the Middle Ages, but also its culinary, for example, the most sweet mustard in the world is produced in Dijon
Our excursion around the city as usually began from Notre-Dame. The city centre is Forzh street. Day was windy. On the main foot street flags have been hanged out. They fluttered with noisy in impulses of a wind. One more feature of Dijon, and probably, Burgundy, were multi-coloured roofs from a brown, green and yellow tile. Till now we saw only a brown and orange tile, there it has given a variety to a city landscape.

You can watch my 1 min 44 sec Video Dijon out of my Youtube channel.


A sculpture of an owl attracted our attention near the Cathedral. It shined from touches of the tourists trusting as we have been explained, that the owl will execute any wish.

Ancient walls of XII century surround the Count palace.
Dijon was the capital of four dukes of Burgundy. The glory about the Burgundian ducal court yard rattled across Europe. The city was one of the centers of the European art.

    Very good page with excellent historical tips. Yes, for a long time, the dukes of Burgundy challenged the kings of France and on several occasions, there were battles between them. Burgundy is also famous for its food (and wine, of course)!

    Sergey, great tips and photos. I especially like the historical ones on Burgundy. The culture of Burgundy was famous for eating well and living the good life. I would love to go and find out firsthand if Dijon upholds this tradition. Cheers, Bill

    For a long time I didn't know that Dijon had this pretty old town center. But one day I sat on a train that stopped here and ever since then I'm hoping to visit one day.
