The Negresco hotel is a symbol of the Cote d'-Azur. Built in the early twentieth century in the neoclassical style, it is included in the list of historical heritage sites in France. The interior of the hotel is magnificent, especially the Royal carpets created hundreds of years ago, and the fact that the interior of the apartments is not repeated. Many world celebrities have stayed in Negresco, including Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Marlene Dietrich, Michael Jackson, and others.
The Promenade des Anglais is the most famous and luxurious street in the city. Here are the best hotels, including the Negresco. The history of the embankment began in the XIX century with an amazing history of charity: the road was built to support the unemployed, and later numerous palaces, casinos and hotels grew along it.
The old town
It is difficult to distinguish individual attractions of the historical center, since there are several dozens of them in this area.

Here you can eat delicious food, enjoying views of the architecture of the historical center, and the lively atmosphere of the street gives a sense of celebration. The flower market is open 6 days a week, and on Monday, antiques are sold in its place.
The Russian Nice
Russian aristocrats, intellectuals and forced migrants of the beginning of the twentieth century left their mark on the architectural appearance of the city. Built with the participation of the Royal family, St. Nicholas Cathedral is one of the largest Orthodox churches in Europe. Famous poets are buried in the Russian Caucade cemetery, and the chapel of St. Nicholas is located in the center of the cemetery.
