The Belle Epoque (French for “Beautiful Era”) was a period in the European history occuring during the era of the French Third Republic. It was a period characterized by optimism, peace at home and in Europe, new technology and scientific discoveries.
For French people, we can say that “La Belle Epoque” started a few years after the world fair of I889.
