Place de l'Europe is situated in the 8th district of Paris, and where most of the streets are named after big european cities. Mostly; yes ! because one of the streets intrigued me.
I walked around in the area; from Stockholm to London.. (Amsterdam, Londres, Liège, Dublin, Athènes, Rome, Turin, Milan, Moscou, Budapest, Stockholm, Berne,Vienne,Saint Petersbourg, Madrid, Bucarest..).. and rue de Constantinople (Istambul now, capital of turkey) ! A street name that doesn't fit (yet?) in place de l'Europe ?
The negotiations are open, let's see what happens in 2015 and if Turkey will enter the European Union.
Anyway, rue de Constantinople will stay in Europe, in Paris !
