Bercy

[bair-see; Fr. ber-see]
Bercy is an area in the east of the city of Paris, France, north of the river Seine.

The area features two well-known large buildings:

  • The Ministry of Finances (often known as "Bercy" simply), built in the 1980s; the extremity of the building plunges into the river Seine, where two fast boats dedicated to VIP transportation are moored.
  • The Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy or POPB is a large sports hall often used for concerts.

The Métro station Bercy is between the ministry and the POPB.

Further to the east lies the Bercy Park, and then the Cour Saint-Émilion, where former warehouses have been converted into a complex featuring many trendy stores and a movie theater.
