Water Mirror

The city of Nice has been undergoing huge changes in the past few years. Perhaps none has been as striking as the appearance of this huge, brilliant “water mirror” in Place Massena in the city’s center. It looks like a big rectangular lake, but the water is only two centimeters deep so in warm weather you’ll see many barefooted kids splashing around, running on the water and dodging the various fountains when they shoot up. It makes this already beautiful, distinctive city all the more appealing.
