A moment to remember

Located less than an hour east of Paris, the Pays de Meaux constituted, a hundred years ago, the scene of one of the most important battles of the First World War: the battle of Marne.

It was here that the German advance was stopped in extremis, at the gates of the capital. It is because of this major event of the Great War that the urban community of Meaux Region inaugurated in 2011 of the Great War Museum.
