From here to the Île Saint-Louis, along the Seine, it’s almost 6km one way, a perfect route for running – and so beautiful, too!
A cool place for an awesome breakfast. Everything is very healthy, too.
Their avocado toast is simply divine.
Good choice for breakfast. Remarkable for its great coffee and delicious avocado toast.
A very cute little café – I love to come here at any time of day.
I have a lot of love for this place. Whether it’s pancakes or pizza, everything is delicious!
Come here on your cheat day and gorge yourself on their famous pancakes with fried eggs, bacon, housemade Bourbon butter and maple syrup.
If you’re as big a fan of granola and porridge as I am, this will be your happy place too.
One of my favourite museums. I could (and usually do) stay for hours upon hours.
This is art interpreted in a modern way, with the mission ‘to keep alive in France the culture of the arts which seek to make useful things beautiful’.
This outstanding museum focuses on the works of inventors and pioneers – très cool!
A wonderful hommage to haute couture!
The Fondation Louis Vuitton is an art museum and cultural center located inside the park Bois de Boulogne and is always worth a visit.
There is a café inside where I love to sit down, process all the beautiful art I have seen and enjoy a cup of coffee along with some typical French pastries. A perfect hour spent lazily in the afternoon.
If you’re up for something new, let yourself be surprised by the highly unique fine dining experience that Dessance has to offer.
Vegan restaurant where every dish is a treat for eye and palate.
Celebrate your stay in Paris the right way and treat yourself to this fantastic restaurant.
A very unique bar where the vibe is definitely always hot. Jump into your party outfit and let the night begin!
If you’re looking for an unforgettable party with the most beautiful people, some celebrity spotting and hot beats? L’arc is where you have to go!
Good drinks, cool people and always a very fun atmosphere – the perfect mix for a long night out.
My thoughts about Paris
I love this city for its special rhythm, for the many places to see, the urban vibes, the walking-friendly districts and calm countryside-like areas and, of course, the art and design everywhere.
Depends on the mood I’m in but often it’s a little bit of piano, Ed Sheeran, Brian Crain, James Blunt, Jessie J, Sam Smith and smashing pop sounds for my morning run.
Walk along the Seine, see the sunset from the Arc de Triomphe, try at least five restaurants – the food scene here is outstanding – see a fashion show and visit one of the Palaces.
Take a vacation into My life
I moved to Paris five years ago, after having finished my Masters in International Business back in Moscow. I‘d also been working as a photographer on the side, with any free time I had.
Once I moved to Paris, I tried to find the right place for my favourite weekend ritual: starting the day in a café, with the perfect cup of cappuccino, continuing to do so all day long, while meeting friends here and there. My biggest ‘problem‘ back then, in 2011, was that there were precisely three places in the whole city that fit my criteria for the ‘perfect cappuccino’. For that reason I set out on my intense research project to determine which places served the best coffee and were also the best to spend time at on the weekends – and so my Parisian foodie adventure began.
Since I started this list, five years ago, it’s got a little bit longer now… well... a lot longer. The last time I checked, it had 87 spots on it. So if you’re looking for the best coffee in town – I’m your guy! I mean girl. Anyway, ask away!
Breakfast! Especially on weekends, when you can really take your time and have a great cup of cappuccino and pancakes, or an Acai bowl, or porridge, or avocado toast. Whatever I end up going with, breakfast is definitely the best time.
Springtime, sun, classic literature and beauty in general.
She never stops and knows it all. She is a big bold crazy, but in a good way. She is always in a search of new, curious and unique. And she smiles all the time.
Sneakers on, high heels in the backpack.
World classics, food magazines, chess study books, quantum physics books, website programming books.
‘Silicon Valley’, ‘Sherlock’, ‘Suits’ (all before Season 4, haha), the movie ‘21’…There are just too many.
Japan, Bali, Italy.
I’ve got a few: Live a life that’s worth writing a book about; always say YES to opportunities and adventures; even the worst thing happens for a good reason; life is a beautiful adventure; behind every hill there is a stunning view.
Suitcase, I like to have options. Always.
A thousand new stories and countless new pictures from every new place.
an exciting adventure.
