Bordeaux’s historic part is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as "an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble" of the 18th century. This is a city where the finest examples of Baroque architecture can be seen. The city offers a large number of cinemas, theatres and is the home of the ‘Opéra national de Bordeaux’.

Bastide and Bordeaux Botanical Gardens are the city's important natural areas. ‘Jardin Botanique de Bordeaux’ dates back as far as the 17th century and ‘Jardin Botanique de la Bastide’, covers quite a large region on the bank of the Garonne River.
