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.

987 Barcelona
Altogether there are three of them. Two 987 Hotels are located in Prague, one in the historical centre and the other one is called Soho. The potential mix-up is intentional! The third 987 Hotel can be found in Barcelona, only a few minutes away from the Passeig de Grácia and the Sagrada Familia. From the outside, on the basis of the facade, the city's architectonic heritage cannot be missed. Several architects including the designer of the Barca stadium Camp Nou, Francesc Mitjans have jointly renovated the building in the course of the past century.   Inside the 987 delivers what a stylish design hotel in Barcelona promises. Elegant wooden floors, pink light and eye-catchers like the mysterious glitter lamp and the plush chair in the entrance area. The 88 rooms in the Eixample hotel also play with contrasts: stuccoed ceilings and heavy upholstery give the suites a royal touch, colourful glass and matching accessories appeal to the design-oriented Barcelona visitor.

Picasso Museum
Yes, in Barcelona everyone knows what good looks like. Before Picasso's art was recognised in Paris, he celebrated first successes in Barcelona and built inspiring friendships with other artists. The museum is a must-visit for Picasso fans, while the building itself is very beautiful dating from the Middle Ages.   Some of Picasso's early work up until the famous blue and pink periods as well as the studies of to ?Las Meninas' are exhibited here. The first attempts of the young Picasso are so fascinating and are bear witness of the genius that was lurking from within: at just 15 years of age, the artist created a huge oil painting of impressive realism.

Bestial
The Tragaluz group owns only on the best, most exciting and stylish restaurants. Omm, El Japones and Negro-Rojo are names that everyone in Barcelona knows and associates with the Zeitgeist of good cooking.   The Bestial, which is their satellite of the sea, has earned without a doubt its position between those names. Right under the Frank O. Gehry fish at the beach of San Sebastián, guests enjoy dinner on the amazing terrace with breath taking views onto the sea and beach. The cuisine fits the beautiful location right at the beach of San Sebastián: light, Mediterranean with a preference for fish and Italy.
