Can you guess where in the world this destination is from the clue below?
This city has been the national capital since the French Colonization of this country. Situated on the banks of three rivers, this city is home to more than two million people. There is a famous Russian Market here, but ironically you won’t find anything from Russia for sale. This city has changed its name each time a new government has been installed. It is considered disrespectful here to show or point the soles of your feet toward another person. Therefore feet must be tucked in while sitting. The head is considered the highest point of the body and therefore should never be touched, even in the kindest manner.
