The 5th arrondissement is a student-youth zone and the place where the famous Sorbonne University is located. It is a very eclectic zone with a unique feature compared to other geographic areas in Paris.
On the one hand, it includes the Quartier-Latin, the Latin Quarter of Paris, which is a particularly student, crowdy and very tourist district, and on the other side the Pantheon and street Soufflot, one of the most expensive and sophisticated streets in Paris.
All the above make up a unique blend. This zone has also a large number of attractions, including the Pantheon and the Jardin des Plantes Botanical Garden, which also hosts the magnificent Museum of Natural History (Musée National d’Histoire Naturelle).
