Set your bag down on the side-walk, gaze around for a few seconds, and the first thing you’ll notice is the stunning architecture. The second thing you’ll notice, if you're observant, is that your bag is missing.
A lot of the notable buildings were designed by the architect Gaudi in the middle to late 1800’s. Gaudi blended nature into his designs, from floral patterns to pillars modelled after trees to support the structural integrity of the building, nature is beautifully infused into each creation by Gaudi.

Two cities rise high above the others in terms of physical beauty and architecture: Barcelona and Prague, both vying for the #1 spot. In my estimation, it's a close race. While Prague, in its very center, is more beautiful than any Disney fairy tale animator could conjure, Barcelona is stunning over a greater area of land. I'll call it a tie, with Budapest a very distant third.
