Lisbon guide | Top recommendations for design lovers
This trip to Portugal was very long-awaited. It met all our expectations and I think that in Portugal everyone will find what he likes to enjoy. Our travel priorities are to see the local nature, not to rush anywhere and feel the city vibe, to understand how the locals live, and to see the modern part of the city, including modern architecture, brands, cafes, and galleries. In this blog post, I want to offer a list of the best places to visit in Lisbon for those who love good design and appreciate the beauty in the details.

Santa Clara 1728 Hotel

After five years of extensive renovation and modernization, Nationalmuseum, Stockholm’s National Museum of Fine Arts, finally re-opened on October 13, 2018, offering visitors an enhanced experience underpinned by its mission to make art and design as accessible as possible. The same vision has been the driving force behind the museum’s new 300-seat restaurant and café which has taken over three impressive ground-floor galleries previously closed to the public.

Inexpressible impressions. The feeling that you are really at the end of the world! Seeing the Atlantic from the westernmost point of the continent is an event for me.

Praia De Ursa

Amazing beach! I recommend to absolutely everyone to go there. The road to it is winding and dangerous, you need to be careful during the descent, but in the end, it will be worth it an unforgettable experience and atmosphere!
