In front of us is one of the main attractions of Parc André Citroën — Generali de Paris balloon. When the weather is fine, you can rise above Paris and enjoy incredible views of the French capital just for 12 euros. Those who are under 12 years of age can fly for half the price. The balloon is open daily from 9 am until the closing of the park.
The total area of the park is 14 hectares. Here visitors can relax among many fountains and greenhouses, where many plant species are collected. Locals as well as guests of the capital visit the park on weekends and in the evenings on weekdays after work.
The futuristic building located in the background is a new prefecture Ile-de-France. The state institution moved here in September 2011. The CEA research center is another institution in the park complex.
