The book street, next to the city’s landmark Post Office and Notre Dame Cathedral, opened in January 2016 with 20 book stores of 14 publishing houses and 2 café book shops.

Especially, hundreds of events have been held in the book street over the past two years, including book launch, meetings between writers and audiences, as well as exhibitions.
