The river Seine flows right through the heart of Paris bordering 10 of the 20 arrondisements.

This early coup took place on what was later to become some very prime real estate. At that time the river was called by it’s Latin name: Sequana. The river is still the chief commercial waterway and half of the water used in Paris still comes form the Seine. Don’t think about that when you look at the sick green water flowing under the bridge, or when your waiter brings you a glass of tap water.
