I truly believe that a walk along the quays of the river Seine is indispensable to any trip to Paris. Any visitor will visit many of the spots along the quays but walking from one to the other is an absolute necessity to getting a global vision of the stupendous beauty of the city. It also provides for wonderful photos. Oh, and it's terribly romantic!
The Grafskaja Quay (a wharf or reinforced bank where ships are loaded and unloaded) is in the center of the city, on the southern part of the Sevastopol Bay. In June 1783, it was created from masonry stones under the license of D. Seniavin. In 1787 with the arrival Ekaterina II, the quay was equipped with modern amenities and was officially name Ekateriniskaia.
