The '''13th arrondissement''' of central Paris is primarily a residential and business district in the south-eastern part of the [[France|French]] capital, lying on the [[Left Bank]] of the river Seine. Although not usually recognised as a natural drawcard for tourists, the 13th nonetheless does hold several attractions of interest to the traveller that include the recently-completed '''Bibliothèque Nationale de France''' (National Library), now part of a major new development of the '''Paris Rive Gauche''' district, the second large-scale urbanism project inside the city of Paris. To the west of the PRG along avenue de Tolbiac is the first of these urbanism projects, '''Les Olympiades''', with its raised esplanade and the latest of the Paris Meteor (high-speed metro) stops, [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olympiades_%28Paris_M%C3%A9tro%29 Les Olympiades]. The southern part of the arrondissement is the "China town" of Paris, one of the (or even the) biggest in Europe.
