Paris Attractions Map of 10th Arrondissement

The 10th arrondissement of Paris is one of the 20 arrondissements (administrative districts) of the capital city of France. Situated on the right bank of the River Seine, the arrondissement contains two of Paris’s six main railway stations: the Gare du Nord and the Gare de l’Est. Built during the 19th century, these two termini are among the busiest in Europe. The 10th arrondissement also contains a large portion of the Canal Saint-Martin, linking the northeastern parts of Paris with the River Seine. The 10th arrondissement of Paris centers on the Canal St. Martin and the restaurants and cafés which line its banks. Part sleepy faubourg — as suburbs were called in 18th century Paris — and part industrial center, the 10th arrondissement has lately enjoyed the benefits of both the booming nightlife scene in the neighboring 11th, as well as the Parisien cycling and roller-blading boom. The streets lining the canal become car-free for the later half of the day each Saturday, and all day on Sundays for your cycling and strolling pleasure. There is another, more bustling side to the cosmopolitan 10th, however, as the location of two primary entry / exit points for the city, in the form of the two great train stations Gare du Nord and Gare de l’Est. One final focus to the 10th is the historic Place de la République in the far south of the arrondissement, its many bars, restaurants and cafés.
