There are many ways to describe the 3rd district. Some of its inhabitants will evoke the communities that live there that settled during the First World War, rue du Temple. Others will prefer to talk about the many fashionable boutiques and welcoming restaurants, rue du Temple, rue de Bretagne and rue Charlot, among others. Some, finally, will emphasize the cultural importance of the district recalling that many museums and libraries have settled there, as the museum of the Doll, impasse Berthaud, the Museum of Art and History of Judaism, rue du Temple , or the Carnavalet museum, rue des Francs Bourgeois. Galleries and bookstores complete this offer, as in the rue du Grenier Saint-Lazare. Such an explosion of atmospheres and centers of interest attracts a very mixed population but with sufficiently high incomes to assume inaccessible real estate prices.
Trendy and very side, the 3rd district is a neighborhood with a very strong identity, vigorously claimed by its inhabitants. Young and old alike enjoy peaceful streets lined with magnificent buildings.
