Some attractions not to miss are the miroir d'eau, the world's largest reflecting pool near the Palais de la Bourse. Another recent addition is the La Cité du Vin, a contemporary museum celebrating Bordeaux's wine culture, the architecture resembles a wine decanter and is located on the banks of the River Garonne.
