The river runs through it

Paris

The Seine River cuts Paris in half, and the original ground zero (where the human settlement formed that ultimately became the city of Paris) is an island in the middle of the Seine called Îlle de la Cité. (It is not in the above picture).  According to the wiki article above, he word Seine has Celtic origins, meaning sacred. Of course the world-famous Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral is found on the Îlle de la Cité.

In the background of the photograph you may notice white smoke rising- I have no idea what caused this.  The boat in the foreground of the photograph is a bateaux mouches or tourist boat.
