France (the French Republic), a country mostly located in western Europe. The official language is French and, as we know, it is pretty difficult to get by with English there. For the better or worse, learn some French phrases. France is the land of cheese, wine, calvados, and flowers. French love restaurants and cafés. They love to meet their friends and to enjoy pleasant atmosphere.

There are many beautiful places in the country for summer trips, a stay at the sea, or skiing in winter. Today, we go to Giverna and Paris, the latter will certainly remain a favorite spot for holidaymakers, regardless what will happen in the future.
