Barcelona with its wide range of culture, sports and nightlife is one of the more popular destinations for Europeans. With its Mediterranean climate, the city also becomes a popular visit for families who want to combine the trip with sun and swimming as the temperature averages about 20 degrees during the summer months.
During the winter, it is slightly colder, with an average temperature of about 10 degrees, then the city will be an excellent destination for you who want to experience sights, football and other fun activities when the crowds are a little less.
The city of Barcelona offers a variety of interesting sights and modern architecture. For those looking for cultural treasures, there is the fabulous cathedral la Sagrada Familia, which after over 100 years of construction is still not completely finished.
The Gothic Quarter “Barri Gòtico”, located in central Barcelona, houses a number of ecclesiastical, cultural and political buildings. In addition to this, there are fun things for the family such as Barcelona Zoo and L’Aquàrium de Barcelona with over 11,000 species of aquatic animals. About 100 km outside Barcelona you will find the Port Aventura theme park which is one of the largest theme parks in Europe.
For the football-mad, a visit to the Camp Nou, home of the football team FC Barcelona, is highly recommended, even on game-free days when you get the chance to see what the arena looks like behind closed doors.
The FC Barcelona football team is the team most associated with the city. Maybe not so strange considering that their home arena Camp Nou takes in just under 100,000 people on match days. The other more famous football team is called Espanyol and plays its home matches at RCDE Stadium which is located on the outskirts of the city.
What many do not know is that Barcelona also has a very successful basketball team that bears the same name as the football team FC Barcelona. The arena, Palau Blaugrana, is located right next to the Nou Camp.
In the heart of Barcelona is one of Europe's largest opera houses; Liceu Grand Theater. Here you will also find the Palau de la Música Catalana concert hall, which is usually packed with various concerts.
From Copenhagen, Oslo, Gothenburg and Stockholm there are almost daily direct flights to Barcelona. Even smaller airports such as Skavsta Nyköping and Oslo Torp usually offer a couple of departures a week. The larger airport in Barcelona is called El Prat and is only a few miles outside the city. From here it is possible to take a bus, metro or taxi to the city center.
During the midday smaller stores close due to the “siesta”. The stores will then be opened again later in the afternoon.
Euro is the currency that Spain uses, but it is usually possible to pay with the most common bank cards. There are some pickpockets in Barcelona, so it can be good not to have large sums of cash on them.
