8 REASONS WHY I LOVE BARCELONA

Imagine a city that has everything. A breathtaking architecture, a beach where you can relax, great food and an incredible nightlife. That's exactly what I was looking for after this hard year. Barcelona. A city I fell in love with.

1. LA BOQUERIA MARKET

I was amazed by this market! I loved the variety of exotic fruits, drinks or seafood you can buy there. We went to this place almost every day (!!!) for a fruit juice - I highly recommend the raspberry- coconut one, it was so delicious!.
It's definitely one of the must-see attractions in Barcelona.




2. PEOPLE

Barcelona is the most cosmopolitan city in Spain. No wonder! I would also stay there forever, if I could. While you can find there people from all over the world, who decided to settle down after they came for vacation, you can also meet other amazing tourists. 
If you are interested in meeting new people, I definitely recommend to stay in the youth hostels. We did so and we met great people from Chile, Australia, South Africa, Canada...It couldn't be better:).

3. MAGIC FOUNTAIN 

A spectacular fountain show with music and lights. We got speechless when we saw the performance of this fountain. The shows are every 30 minutes, but they are different so we stayed there longer and watched them all. 




4. PARKS

It's so easy to escape from the city rush to a quite park where everything seems to be perfect! In one of the parks we discovered a flower which blooms and smells only at night. Oh yes, the most beautiful things in life are free:). 



5. PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

In Barcelona there are so many different means of transport to discover this beautiful city. Metro, tram, bus, taxi or a bike- what do you prefer?  We were exploring the streets by foot + metro. I loved how frequent it was so we could save some time and see more things. 


6. BEACH

What's the best feeling? To wake up in a beautiful morning when the sun is shining and you have a chance of going to the beach. Yeah, that's Barcelona! We were also swimming in the sea at 5:30 a.m., right after the disco, which was one of the most fun things we did there:).



7. NIGHTLIFE

Oh my gosh! The nightlife was incredible. Work hard, play hard was our motto! We went out almost every day, met new people (yes yes, I already mentioned it). My favorite night was at club called Razzmatazz. It was huge and the music was great (and my handsome dancing partner too, haha:)).


8. ARCHITECTURE

Barcelona is a city where you can look around and always find something what deserves a second (or two) to look at it. There is a mix of modern and gothic architecture. It is so much more then just Gaudí and Sagrada Familia!




And what about you? Which city are you in love with?

Have a beautiful day!
