It may well be discussed what makes a city the best in the world, but it is not up for discussion that Barcelona in the north-east Spain is an absolutely perfect city for you who want to combine city life, ball, shopping, sun and beach.
And when the city is even home to the stars of world-famous FC Barcelona - or just Barça - then it's hard to get around the fact that the city is a mecca for anyone with a penchant for 'the beautiful game'.
Barcelona is on The Mediterranean coast, and the light blue water and the soft sand lie right at your feet when you visit the city. Some of the best beaches are right in the center and you can walk to and from the other famous areas of the city in minutes.
The Rambla is a world-famous pedestrian street that ends at the water at one end and mine in the vibrant city at the other end. The Rambla also shares two of the city's most popular neighborhoods: the old Barri Gòtic on the north side and the hip El Raval on the south.
Barri Gòtic is home to countless restaurants, bars, shops and cultural offerings, and there is a large concentration of tourists almost around the clock. El Raval, on the other hand, is more influenced by the many locals who live in the area, and you will find exciting alternative shops, cafés and eateries in the narrow streets and alleys.
Jens is a happy travel nerd who has traveled in over 60 countries from Kyrgyzstan and China to Australia and Albania. Jens is educated in China Studies, has lived in China for 1½ years and is a member of the Travel Club. He has extensive experience with the travel world as a tour guide, lecturer, advisor, author and photographer. And of course most important of all: As a traveler. Jens often goes to places where it is also possible to watch a good football match in the company of other incarnated fans and has a special fondness for Boldklubben FREM, where he sits on the board. For most people it is obvious to look up to Jens (he is barely two meters tall), and then he is a 14-time champion in the TV quiz Jeopardy and still single, so if you can not find him out in the world or on a football stadium, you can probably find him out touring in the Copenhagen quiz environment.
