Barcelona travel tips

1) Avoid queues by purchasing tickets to Barcelona’s main sites online

Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in the world. That’s why the joy of visiting such popular places as Sagrada Família, Casa Batllo, Park Güell, Casa Mila, etc., may be spoiled by extremely long waiting times. Buying tickets online in advance will make your trip much more pleasant. If the tickets are sold out, try looking for guided tours. Their organisers pre-book tickets so that you will get inside after all.

2) Visit the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya in Barcelona — one of the largest museums in Spain

The National Art Museum of Catalonia has an extensive collection of visual art, from Romanesque church paintings to modernist works. It is located in Palau Nacional, a 50,000 square metres classical-style building constructed in 1929. The Palace is crowned by a large dome similar to one of St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City. Even if you are not much of a museum-goer, come here to see the Palace in all its grandeur.

3) Be careful while discussing politics in Barcelona

Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia. There are some serious tensions between this region and the Spanish government. During the 2017 referendum, 90% of Catalans supported the idea of creating an independent state, but the Constitutional Court of Spain declared it illegal. Think twice before commenting on the political situation in the region not to offend the locals!
