Barcelona
Often referred to as the second capital city of Spain, Barcelona offers an eclectic mix of old and new, and boasts some of the finest architecture in Europe combined with modern chic. Wandering around Barcelona you will easily spot many of Antoni Gaudi's designs, which are dotted all over the city, including his signature building, the Sagrada Familia cathedral. The famous pedestrian route Las Ramblas features a mix of typical touristy souvenirs and local arts and crafts, however the main attractions here are the numerous life statues, each one as fantastic as the next. Sports fans should head to Camp Nou, the home ground of Barcelona FC. Those looking for some retail therapy will be happy too with stores on almost every street, and include many famous high street and designer names. So pack your bags, fly with Austrian Airlines to Barcelona and experience this unique and beautiful city soon.

MACBA
Barcelona had to wait a very long time for its first contemporary and international art museum. Only in 1995, the MACBA was opened in the Raval district. Architect Richard Meier designed this pure and cold building in white creating a contrast to the rest of rather dark Raval. Some see this as a true highlight, while others rate it a little over the top. Most of the locals, however, enjoy the building. On the square in front of the building you`ll find skaters and tourists who are interested in culture. The art in the Gammel district contributed to the image of El Raval being the creative and alternative district. At the MACBA, you`ll find different exhibitions of various famous artists, including sculptors, painters or video artists.

Enric Rovira
The name Rovira is widely known in Barcelona. Father Pedro runs a patisserie in the heart of the city, his son Enri creates art works made of chocolate, like Dali did with his paintings. One of his first chocolate masterpieces was the facade mosaic by Catalan architect Gaudi. This was his breakthrough. Today he supports young artists himself and translates their concepts into chocolate. In doing so he does not only focuses on the taste but also on the form. Bilious green ginger chocolate and orange cocoa corn mixtures - which do not appear tasty at first sight - bear witness of that. All chocolates are produced without any preservatives. If you fancy even more chocolate, then you should visit the chocolate museum near the Parliament afterwards!

Silenus
Silenus is a meeting point for artists and intellectual of the city to enjoy an extraordinary dinner. The restaurant hides behind a Jugendstil door and combines the comforts of a coffee house with an excellent gourmet kitchen. The creativity of the Raval area is mirrored in the beautiful food served in this place. Tip: Even though it tastes extraordinarily, make sure you leave some room for dessert. Every single item is a small piece of art that will that will lift you into chocolate heaven.
