    Everywhere in Paris is a magical atmosphere

    What do you think about this sentence:
    1. Everywhere in Paris is a magical atmosphere.Does it sound natural?
    Or is it better to say:
    2. Everywhere in Paris, there is a magical atmopshere.
    Or maybe:3. Everywhere in Paris, the atmosphere is magical.

    2 and 3 are better.

    I've never been to Paris, but I can't help feeling that, like any city, certain quarters of Paris are far from magical.

    I'd go further and say that 1 sounds unnatural (to me).
