Toulouse is primarily known as the capital of the southwestern region of France, located on the banks of the Garonne River and serving as the headquarters for European space exploration. However, it is also a great place to visit, where you can see and explore many interesting places: countless churches, museums and gardens — all of which make Toulouse a unique city.

Toulouse Blagnac Airport, TLS

The small airport of Toulouse manages to serve about 7 million passengers a year. More than 60 airlines from all over the world arrive here.

But tourists spoiled with excellent service will not be so happy with Toulouse-Blagnac Airport. There is not even Wi-Fi, not to mention places for recreation. At this airport you can’t count on a vacation or decent food. In addition, the airport is closed at night, so its infrastructure is designed for quick arrival, passing control and moving further into the city.

Toulouse Sightseeings

Toulouse has the nickname La Ville Rose — City of Roses. All because many of the city’s buildings are made of pinkish brick. The construction of these houses was funded by the city’s main export commodity, the blue dye used in medieval and Renaissance textiles.

Today, Toulouse is the aviation capital of Europe with the largest space center and headquarters of Airbus. Toulouse attracts fascinating museums about space, history, ancient art, as well as art from the Gothic period to the Impressionists.

Basilica of Saint-Sernin

The basilica was built in the 1100s. Now this largest Romanesque church in Europe is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. More relics are stored here than in any other church in France. Many of them were donated to the abbey by King Charlemagne in the 800s.

If you look closely at the facade of the five-story brick tower of the basilica, you can clearly see a mixture of styles, since the building began to be built in the 12th century, and finished only in the 14th.

Capitol Square

Whether you go shopping or sightseeing, you will regularly return to Capitol Square in front of City Hall. The city seems to be built around this place. A magnificent palace in pink is much older than it might seem at first glance. Some fragments of the palace were built in the 12th century, and in the back of the building you can see elements of the Renaissance. It is worth looking inside, where the artists painted heartbreaking allegories of love. In the 19th century, the palace served as a venue for weddings, so the interior is “filled” with love.

Toulouse Museum

Despite its name, this museum is not about the history of Toulouse, but the largest collection of ethnological exhibits outside of Paris. There are more than 2.5 million subjects of natural science. Here you can immerse yourself in botanical, entomological, mineralogical, ornithological, paleontological and many other “logical” galleries for hours! Many of these collections were collected by the most curious minds of the 19th century.

Space town

If anything can return adults to childhood, it's definitely theme parks. The space town in Toulouse offers visitors to dive into space exploration. Here you can watch movies at the IMAX cinema, visit the planetarium, and look at the technologies and devices that are used at space stations.

In the space town you can find an exact copy of the European rocket "Arian-5", which has completed more than 70 successful missions since 2003. And at the same time you can step on the very space station "Mir", which revolved around the Earth from 1986 to 2001. All the fun!

The Augustins museum

This museum contains paintings and sculptures from the medieval period until the beginning of the 20th century. At the same time, the building itself is an example of the southern Gothic style, being built in the 14th century. This is one of the few religious buildings of the period that survived after the massive destruction of the 1800s.

The collection of works of art is mainly dated to 1400-1700 years. It presents the works of Italian Renaissance artists, as well as Flemish and Dutch artists such as Rubens, Van Dyck, Van Goyen, Cape and Jordans.

Japanese garden

Oddly enough, in the French city of Toulouse, it is quite possible to immerse yourself in Japanese culture. A true Japanese garden is located near the center. It is inspired by authentic Kyoto gardens built between the 14th and 16th centuries.

The garden is ideal for relaxing walks. You can even meditate here if you arrive early when there are few people walking around. Be sure to walk along the bridge to the island in the middle of the pond. Here you can see the beautiful koi carps and turtles.
