Moulin Rouge – “The Red Mill” – is a famous entertainment venues in the Place Blanche in Montmartre in Paris. Right near the metro station Blanche.
At the Moulin Rouge, which was founded in 1889, beating cancan breakthrough. One of the dancers, known as La Goulue, was painted by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
Have been twice to Moulin Rouge – and I love it … it’s naughty – it’s fun – it’s bold – it’s lush – it’s vibrant and it’s expensive. For me this is very much culture. …. fun culture and it’s timeless.
In 2009 when I last was in Paris – Moulin Rouge had it’s 120 anniversary, when the photos are taken, but we went to Lido instead.
And of course we have the movie “Moulin Rouge” from 2001 with Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor. One of my top 10 favorite movies, can’t say how many times I seen it – a what I would call a cult-movie.
“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn
is just to love and be loved in return.”
