The Gare de l’Est (East Station) was originally the beginning of one of the five branches of the famous French Star looking train line system leaving from Paris, considered as the center of our country, to reach the 5 opposite sides of France, a country also called « the Hexagon ».
On the 5th of June 1883, the very first « Orient Express » leaves the tracks of Gare de l’Est to reach Constantinople! This Luxury train became quickly world famous, and the novel of Agatha Christie: « the crime of the Orient Express » just helped the Orient Express to become… a Myth.
The Parisiana Hotel 3* is nowadays just happy to welcome you every day (and nights) if you rode the Pullman-Orient-Express or not!
