Hola Amigos- Barcelona Beckons Budget Travellers
Barcelona—rising gently from the blue depths of the seas and set on a plain fringed by wooded hills, is the perfect summer holiday destination for young friends looking forward to some wonderful moments of togetherness. This capital city of Catalonia has the distinction of being rated among Mediterranean’s busiest ports and is a hub of bars, restaurants and clubs. Barcelona’s crowded seaside beaches, vibrant cafeterias, newly renovated stadia, sprawling malls and other centres of entertainment for budget conscious travellers are best experienced in sync with the local spirit and fervour.
After stepping out of the boundaries of United Kingdoms, travellers may feel that those in Barcelona are dedicated to hedonism –but then, they are dynamic, hardworking and hospitable too. Once a Roman town and dedicated to medieval trade juggernaut, this city now takes pride in presenting some of greatest concentrations of Gothic architectural wonders in Europe. Whether it is about the ancient surreal spectacles that are appropriately capped by the church of Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Família or the modern wonders of contemporary times –the racing heart of this city has not skipped a beat in so many years.

A city resounding with its very own character, language, regional cuisines, cultural attributes, traditions and historical opulence, Barcelona is oft thought of as a separate country. While in the region, vacationers love to keep themselves occupied on its sandy stretches, in the terrains of the Montserrat mountain range and by savouring the attractions of Sitges. There is no dearth of accommodation facilities here and there is something to suit every wallet. For instance, Hostal Centric is extremely popular among students and young budget travellers and is well equipped with all the basic amenities for a comfy stay. Situated in proximity to the Barcelona City Centre, this affordable place is surely worth a look.
After sharing plentiful fun filled moments at Port Aventura (which is a well packaged destination resort complete with a water park and world class amusement), friends love to head towards The Sutton Club. This great hangout for local enthusiasts and tourists alike, makes revellers tap their feet in unison with the tunes played by the best DJs in town – thus making Fridays and Saturdays all the more special. There is a lot in store for foodies, art lovers and those willing to take a walk through historical remnants too. With many art galleries, museums, theatres, shopping malls and places of sightseeing to discover and enjoy, there is certainly a lot to do and see here. (Image by Viajart)
