Lisbon: The city of sightseeing

It may seem a little suspicious that I always say such good things about Lisbon, as it is my hometown. The truth is, I absolutely love everything about it. It is also true that this is one of the most charming and interesting cities I’ve explored so far. Having said that, I’m going to take a moment to reveal some of my favorite places, hoping that, when you get the chance to stop by, you’ll come to truly appreciate its beauty as much as I do.

Lisbon - 12 insights discovered in 1 week

If you’re going away from home for more than a couple of months, you are not traveling. You are not on holiday anymore. That is your life. My life in Lisbon, Portugal began 2 weeks ago in a rapid way. It is such a wonderful feeling to be in your hometown partying and the next day, all of a sudden, wake up in your new Erasmus life. Being in another country requires flexibility, a smart adaptable mind and a busy life. Among classes, cooking, assignments, we plan our travels and explore the city, but also notice insight and customs that no site can tell you. Here are 12 + insights that my sister and I discovered by living here in the first week. So before coming here, you might be interested in knowing this:

Word Traveler

Lisbon by E-bike

With helmets on and smiles on our faces, off we went, the seven hills of Lisbon awaiting our arrival. I wondered if my ride was going to be able to conquer this historic city adventure with me in charge.

Michelle McNeill

Arrival at the island of Madeira

I got a Portuguese guidebook from my parents for Christmas. This book contains all the interesting places what it’s worth visiting in the country such as Lisbon, Porto, the region of Algarve, Braga, and Coimbra. I have already read about these places before. But there were two islands (Madeira and Azores) as well that I didn’t even know their existence.

Violetta Nagy

Salty air and beach hair at Costa Da Caparica

Caparica is a little town about 30 minutes from Lisbon City. In summer it’s a popular holiday destination among the Portuguese but the region is almost unknown to foreign tourists. The coastline has some of the best beaches for either sunbathing, relaxing strolls or catching some waves. The small streets are covered in cobblestones and every little white house has some surfboards on the terrace, waiting to be taken out for a late night swim. The more south you go, the less people you will encounter. The town is ideal if you seek some nature and culture close by.

Lisbon : enchanting people, warm weather, delicious food.

My relationship with Portugal began more than two years ago when I participated in a student exchange. I spent a week with the Portuguese students in Lisbon. My trip to Lisbon, a city of thousands cafes, shots-bars and clubs began on a hot summer day in August. Together with four friends booked two rooms in dilapidated hostel in the center of Lisbon, in the neighborhood Rossio.

Where?

Sintra is a city in the center of Portugal, about 25 km on the north-west of the capitale, Lisbonne. It is protect by Unesco since 1995 and it’s classify Cultural Heritage of Humanity as a lot of spots in this country.

Try to feel Lisbon

One of the biggest problem for me was to find flight for good price, because all flights from Russia was really expensive and i start to planning my summer trip to Portugal and finally i found tickects from Helsinki (around 450 km from Saint-Petersburg) to Lisbon with one stop in Oslo. This stop takes 10 hours.

alex-krasnov

Past and current time

Cascais was a small fishing village outside of Lisbon, its history as a place used for settlement by people goes back to the Stone Age. It is an important stopping place for seafarers for centuries, because of its location, and the long and eventful maritime history of Portugal. Today it is built together with Lisbon the capital of Portugal, due to the fast urbanization process we can see everywhere around major cities. It didn’t take away the charm of this little seaside town though, if anything it made the place for a more desirable destination for tourist from abroad, around the world and also for people visiting or living in Lisbon. Its proximity to the city centre, connection with it by train, a major road (A5 motorway) and the coastal, scenic route provide easy way for a day break.

Lisbon - the king for all of the cities

Someone said that we travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us. And at some point, they are right. I love exploring, and I firmly believe that this passion of exploring something new will let us stay alive and active. I can not say that the destination I am going to describe is just a country. No, it is not the only destination, but it is also not only a country, that is the whole empire with the decades of history. One of the smallest countries in Europe, it has outstanding food, wine, unique rhyme of the life and fantastic atmosphere no matter which part of the country you visit. Sometimes I wonder how it is possible to combine all of these things together on such a small territory? How is it possible to be so beautiful? Good question, is not it? We landed in Lisbon at around 2 P.M., and the first feeling you have is about how sunny this place is. Another fact which makes you speechless is architecture. Colorful buildings, super narrow streets, a lot of flowers on the balconies, roof bars and terrace cafes, spectacular views of the bridges or Alfama district..yes, it is everything about Lisbon. I would say that it can be named a king of the entire country. That is the place where you feel yourself super small, tiny one in comparison to everything you see – Castelo de São Jorge, high decorated buildings, Commercial Square and Ponte de 25 Abril. Every corner of the city has its piece of history, its story.

Bragança: hot land, cold land

Tradition and modernity. Those are the words that describe Bragança, a lovely small town in the countryside of Portugal. Distant from the most famous cities – Lisbon and Porto – Bragança is located in the northeast of Portugal, in the region of Trás-os-Montes, and borders with Spain.  This position influences the town’s climate which makes it a hot and cold land with snow in the winter and a 40ºC degrees sun during the summer. Nature, nightlife, history, culture and pilgrimage. Here’s a small guide of how to enjoy the stay in Bragança in all seasons.

Three days in Lisbon

Arrival to Lisbon It was 3rd of February and I got the best birthday gift ever: a flight ticket to Lisbon. Why Lisbon? I got a scholarship to study and live in the next six months in Porto.  I can honestly say that choosing Portugal was one of the best decision I could take.

Ericeira – a Hidden Gem of the Portugal Western Coast

There are countries in the world that sink into your heart so deeply that you travel there again and again. For me such country became Portugal. I remember perfectly the moment when I got hit by the beauty of this land – on some hectic office day I glanced at my facebook feed and saw the photo made by my friend, a prominent travel photographer. It was a picture of Lisbon bathing in the golden sunset rays where the pile of bright, almost red oranges merged with the tile roofs of the same colour.

Off the beaten track in Portugal.. 

Don’t you want to escape the “tourist traps” the places everyone goes? Surely enough you know these places don’t show you the realism of the county they just look fancy and rip you off ! There is a little fishing village just outside of Lisbon (Portugal) called  Cascais. Cascais is a one way train ride from Lisbon it’s literally the last stop so you cannot miss it ! The train takes about 30-40 minutes along the most beautiful coastal line and once your there it will be hard to leave.

A weekend in the city of miradours- Lisbon

Lisbon, Portugal Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and one of my favorite cities in Europe. Beautiful, old, charismatic, lively, cozy, full of fresh energy. It is also one of Western Europe capital cities along the Atlantic coast, hint the amazing surf beaches and sunbathing beaches. I would say Lisbon is very different form other cities firstly because it’s an uphill city, because of it’s buildings covered with faience, colorful streets, restaurants, public transportation, weather, white pavement all over the city that the locals really care about, very friendly people and eager to help.
