This wouldn´t be a travel-blog, if I didn´t post anything from my travels.
So fact is, my recent travels were mostly relaxing somewhere, visiting friends or family, at places I already know pretty well. Just one day, when I was staying in France horse-back riding, I visited the city of Dijon. I really have to say it´s a beautiful city and definitely worth seeing!
You may have heard of Dijon as the mustard. The recipe, in fact, was created in the 18th century around Dijon, that´s why they called it like that! (Fun Fact!) Apart from the mustard, Dijon has a lot more to offer! It´s an important emporium of the Burgundy Wine, as well as a center of trade, transport and industry. Apart from that the historic city center is so incredibly cute and pretty and for you shopaholics out there, there are quite a lot of shops there, apart from a sort of “mile” where it´s quite touristic (the shops ranging from Sephora to Galleries Lafayette), there are so many cute little shops and boutiques everywhere in the city, as well as cafés at every corner (for you coffee-lovers out there-Yes, count me in as well;-)) Also historically interested people as well as art and architecture interested ones have things to see here. There are museums and the city itself is full of historic places/churches/theaters/museums and amazing architechture.
Dijon also has a big university (l´Université de Bourgonge) and a school of art (l´école national des beaux arts) of high standing.
Now to my day:
After that we went shopping…
I hope you enjoyed and if you´d like to visit and have any questions don´t hesitate to ask.
I can´t say I know all of Dijon, but I definitely got to know a lot of it and I´ll probably come back sometime to see more of the city and maybe visit the botanic garden as well as the botanic museum!
