When you look at Paris in 1900, you might get a feeling that we went backwards as a society. The Belle Epoque era is one of the most beautiful eras in Europe.

The era started after the end of the France-Prussian War in 1871 and lasted until the start of World War I. The Belle Epoque period was characterized by optimism, beauty, and lots of technological advancements.

In the United Kingdom, Belle Epoque overlapped with the late Victorian Era. However, it was France that benefited mostly from the era.

In France, the Belle Epoque was a period of "joy of living". Happening between two devastating wars, the Belle Epoque period allowed French to really enjoy life. France became the center of culture influence.
