Paris (AFP) – The French capital’s tourist attractions will debut in 2019 as part of the city’s centennial celebrations.
But, some will be restricted to only being open to visitors with special permits.
Paris will mark its centennial by opening a new airport on the Seine river, while a second city centre will host the launch of the world’s biggest aquarium, which will be the first in the country to have its name engraved on the exterior.
A major new city centre, the Stade de France, is due to open in 2020.
It will be a symbolic milestone in the citys centennial, which marks the city being founded in 1789.
It marks the centennial of the Paris Commune, a revolt that led to the first nationalisation of the railways in the French capital in 1871 and the creation of the Republic of Paris.
