Park of the Nations, Lisbon

Park of the Nations is a new and exciting area of the Lisbon. It is a leisure, commercial, and residential area in Northeastern part Lisbon, Portugal, next to the Tagus river estuary. It is certainly an interesting place worthy of a few rolls!

We found ourselves here because we decided to visit the Oceanarium. Once we left the tube station, we were struck by the futuristic views of Santiago Calatrava’ buildings of the bus station and Vasco da Gama shopping mall. Calatrava is also responsible for the Valencia city’s makeover.

Locals quite frequently call the area “expo” as it was renovated in the1998’ World Exhibition. Before or after your visit to the Oceanarium, wander around the marina, take the cable ride (great fun!), enjoy the cleverly programmed “Volcano” fountain and have a drink or a food at one of the multiply restaurants which stroll along the promenade. This place is also very popular among the bird lovers, as the Tagus River’s estuary is one of the largest in Europe. São Gabriel and São Rafael twin towers are impressive, Vasco de Gama Tower just asks to be in the shot and everything around is very new, clean and exciting.
You just can’t stop Lomographing. My mother enjoyed this area a lot as she found Lisbon a little bit worn over for her taste. She also couldn’t figure out why they tile their houses from outside :)
