A couple of months ago we told you about this unusual event taking place not far from our hotels – the Chinese lantern effect applied to giant sculptures of animals, displayes in the Jardin des Plantes, which is open at night for the first ever time.
It’s been a great success, and we really wanted to get down there to show you what you (may have) missed… Check out our photos!
It was quite magical being able to go round the Jardin des Plantes at night, and we weren’t expecting to be able to go through the menagerie as well. It was… strange.
Many of the illuminated animals were presented with panels giving ectra information, and the adults seemed as amazed as the children!
The night of our visit, it was very, very busy (even at 14€ per ticket) and hopefully the event will happen again this year or the next ?
So, here are our photos, and to learn all about Species on the Verge of Illumination, read our article here.
