Barcelona

Barcelona is Spain's second largest city, situated on the Mediterranean coast which boasts one of Europe's busiest ports. A bilingual city, Barcelona has two official languages, Spanish and Catalan. Some of Barcelona's top attractions include the famous Gothic Quarter, where many buildings date back to medieval times. In the Quarter you will find the world renowned Sagrada Família, which is the most visited monument in Spain. It has been under construction for over 100 years. Works by Antoni Gaudí can be found all over the city in places such as Park Güell, Casa Batlló, Casa Milà and Casa Vicens. These are just a few of the many things to see in Barcelona, along with the beaches, parks, museums and historical buildings. There is no better way than to fly with Austrian Airlines to Barcelona, a beautiful city rich in culture, architecture, art and history.

Duduá
Duduá is not a shop but a network for artists that haven't made it yet. If you are a creative person then don't hesitate to take your work to the Duduá. Here, you'll find like-minded people that will not only share their opinion, but will also organise interesting workshops.   If you prefer to watch rather than create then you are also in the right place: small art pieces, limited music, shirts, magazines and a lot of this and that with artistic flair. Careful: time just flies in this shop!

BAC!
Barcelona is all about contemporary art, especially in November. At the BAC! festival everything goes as long as it looks good and is art. Examples include graphite, objects, sculptures, photography, painting and video art.   The participating artists are international and their work is exhibited all over town in galleries and public spaces. The works are connected through a common theme that changes every year. The exact programme is constantly being updated and is published on their website.

The five Rooms
Yessica had to have this apartment. But because of its 400 square metres, it was just a little too big for one person and so she decided to transform it into a small hotel. How you do that? You take 5 large rooms, furbish them stylishly and wait until a traveller magazine mentions it alongside the luxury hotels of the city.   If you are staying at Yessica, it is like you are staying with a friend who is happy to provide you with all kinds of insider tips that you won't find in any guide book. Double rooms are available from Euro 135 per night

Antic Bocoi
One should not give away a secret like this, but we are doing it anyway. Book a table at the Antic Bocoi del Gòtic and have a real taste of authentic Catalonian food (a reservation is essential!).   The traditional ambience is underlined by a piece of city wall that is part of the restaurant. It is best if you take a look at this highlight first. As soon as your stockfish or the typical ?coca?, which is a very fine pizza, are served, you will forget about the impressive wall.
