Barcelona travel tips

1) Don’t expect everything done quickly and on schedule in Barcelona

Barcelonians tend to have a relaxed attitude towards life. For instance, the shop may open later than the sign in the window says, and the waiting staff won’t necessarily rush to take your order. Take that cultural peculiarity into account, and don’t let such trifles get on your nerves!

2) See a full-size model of a 16th-century galley at the Maritime Museum in Barcelona

The museum is located in a medieval shipyard. That alone makes it worth a visit. Here you can see how the ships were built several centuries ago. The museum has an interesting collection of old ship models. Its highlight is the faithful reconstruction of the 60-metres-long royal galley, involved in the Battle of Lepanto in 1571. However, you will also see modern sports and commercial boats as well as maritime equipment.

3) Exploring Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter on a bike is no good

Barcelona is a bike-friendly city with more than 200 kilometres of bike paths and hundreds of renting stations. You can find wide level streets for a leisurely ride or challenge the hills on a mountain bike. However, historic parts of Barcelona, such as the Gothic Quarter, have narrow streets and crowds of tourists. A bike will only burden you there. Walking is your best option to explore these neighbourhoods.
