9th district of Paris
The 9th district of Paris is one of the twenty Arrondissements of Paris, located on the Right Bank of the the Seine. With a surface of 217.5 hectares, the 9th district counts among the least wide of the capital. The district is particularly well served in public transport, since one counts 19 subway stations located inside or limit of his territory. The cultural offer is very developed with the palate Garnier, the Place of the Opera, but especially the theaters and cinemas of the grand boulevards. If the Opera or the Drouot Hotel attracts many visitors, it should be stressed that the few 200.000 people of passage each day in the district, attend primarily the department stores of the Chaussée sector of Antin and the many banking institutions established in the south of the district.

The current mayor of the 9th district is Jacques Bravo, PS, elected in 2001. Previously, the mayor was Gabriel Kaspereit, UMP, elected for the first time mayor in 1983 and constemment re-elected until 2001, in spite of the little of change in the district during these twenty years; he had indeed, like the majority of the mayors of district under the mandates of Jacques Chirac then of Jean Tibéri with the Town hall, only one budget in order to organize festivals and ceremonies…
