Postcards from Southern France: Gorgeous Nice and its architecture

Nice, the heart of the French Riviera (Côte d’Azur), is the place where one can see the old-world traces and modern urban energy living together in perfect harmony.

Nice is a place of high contrasts and paradoxes. The first visual shock one gets here comes from the architectural styles: from Medieval to contemporary style, from Belle Époque to Genoan, from Art Nouveau to Brutalism.

The daylight, the buildings’ bright colours next to the sea colours turn Nice into a place to remember forever. That explains why notable artists fell in love with the city and their artwork masterpieces speak for themselves.
