France is known for many things, like perfumes, cheese, wine and what not. More than that, France is known for Paris, the most romantic city on this planet.

Everyone wants to visit Paris at least once in their lifetime, all thanks to its rich architecture, history, art, culture and what not. Over the course of time, Paris has developed into this giant symbol of romance and everything great in this world. However, somewhere while glorifying the land of Paris, we forgot about other wonders of France.

French have a sense of humour in their language and while it doesn’t come off significantly through their language, it can definitely be seen in the names of their places.
