LISBON – ‘By day Lisbon has a naive theatrical quality that enchants and captivates, but by night it is a fairy-tale city, descending over lighted terraces to the sea, like a woman in festive garments going down to meet her dark lover…’
I often hear in various media that “Lisbon is the new Berlin” to refer to the dynamics of a city undergoing social and economic changes and focused on innovation and entrepreneurship. I also often hear ‘Lisbon is the new Barcelona’ referring to its skyrocketing rankings among most recommended and most visited cities in Europe. Much of that is true, nevertheless I was not expecting to be that impressed. The city has so much to offer to any photographer hunting for a perfect urban landscape set against the ocean and several hills covered with red roof historical buildings. Lisbon is a must destination for anyone who loves exploring historic cities and getting lost in the narrow streets while capturing photographs of everyone and everything around them.
