Tips for Barcelona

Las Ramblas

Las Ramblas is the main boulevard of the city. This two-kilometer long avenue connects the city center (Placa Catalunya) and the Port Vell. Thus it became by no accident a pulsing artery and favorite meeting spot of local residents and famous tourist attraction with many souvenir shops and cafes that line both sides of the street. The portrait painters, fortune tellers and human statues are some examples of the performances one can look up to in this street.

L'Aquaruim

L'Aquarium fulfills the function of an entertainment centre and educational institution. It is situated in the Port Vell. The exhibition ground consists of 35 tanks where one can see some 11 000 animals and 450 different species. Among the main attractions there is the Oceanarium, the largest tank with the highest concentration of different species. The experience is even more breathtaking thanks to the 80-meter long glass tunnel through which one can go and thus have sharks, morays, ocean sunfish and other animals at arm's length.

Good news for fans of adrenaline sports and entertainment: you have a unique opportunity to dive with the sharks in Oceanarium.

Futbal Club Barcelona

The slogan of Barcelona football club: “más que un club” (more than a club) reflects that Barca (familiar version) embodies the Catalan identity, independence, freedom. The club was established by a businessman Hans Gamper in 1899. Camp Nou is the club's main stadium, which is the biggest stadium in Europe with the capacity of 98.800 seats. Inside there is also a Club Museum, where one can learn more about the history of this successful club, see its achievements or buy some souvenirs.
