Thermes de Cluny

Thermes de Cluny are the ruins of the communal baths in Roman Lutetia (2nd century A.C.). Two halls have preserved well, one of which had the biggest dome in Roman Gallia. To replace the baths, the house of the abbots of Cluny Abbey was built in the 15th century; it is now an example of Gothic secular architecture. Today, the MusГ©e de Cluny, officially known as MusГ©e National du Moyen Г‚ge (National Museum of the Middle Ages), is housed here. It was opened in 1843. The most famous artifacts include the originals of Biblical kings' heads that were knocked down from the facade of Notre Dame de Paris during the First Republic, and the 15th century Gobelin tapestries "La Dame Г  la Licorne" (The Lady and the Unicorn).

Le Louvre

A stronghold was built in 1190 during the reign of Philip II Augustus. Subsequently turned into a royal residence by the decree of Charles V de Valois, the stronghold was torn down centuries later, in 1528, and a beautiful palace was built in its place. King Francis I brought Leonardo Da Vinci's masterpiece, La Joconde, to decorate the Louvre palace.

Every other king settling in the Louvre remodelled and added new structures to the palace. After the royal residence had been moved into Versailles by King Louis XIV, Le Louvre became the repository of art valuables; the academy of fine arts moved in. In 1793 the Louvre museum was opened. The most active contributor to the collection was Napoleon I, who accepted war indemnity from his defeated enemies in the form of artworks.

Le Louvre has been renovated in the recent times. The architect Ieoh Ming Pei added the easily recognizable pyramid as the main entrance to the museum. The pyramid is now known as the Louvre Pyramid, and it is the starting point of a magnificent view of Paris: from Le Louvre, through the Napoleonic Arc de Carrousel, along the Tuileries garden and the Champs Г‰lysГ©es, through the Arc de Triomphe and finishing near La Grande Arche de la DГ©fense.

Sorbonne

The oldest university in Paris started off as a department of theology, founded in 1257 at the school of Notre Dame de Paris during the reign of King Louis IX the Saintly. The first head of the department was the royal chaplain Robert de Sorbonne. Dante Alighieri and Thomas Aquinas worked here.

The university flourished under the informal rule of Cardinal Richelieu, who contributed his private funds into the development of Sorbonne, built the Sorbonne church dedicated to Saint Ursula, and decreed to change the official language of education from Latin to French. The modern-day buildings on campus have been built in the 19th century.

MusГ©e Rodin

One of the less-visited charming museums of Paris, MusГ©e Rodin is housed in the former residence of the great sculptor Auguste Rodin himself. The house dates back to the 18th century; Rodin moved in in 1908. The house, the garden, and the sculptures themselves are well worth a visit.
