- FC Barcelona: Did you know that the player to whom the fans gave all the credit for the win was Lionel Messi and he is from Argentina? The nickname of the team has Blaugrana based on the blue and maroon colours that the football team wears for all its games. The same colours are worn by all the teams that represent FC Barcelona in other games like basketball, handball and hockey.
- Traffic in Barcelona: Drivers in Barcelona are considered among the worst in the world, with accidents occurring in the city every nineteen seconds! This can go up to ten accidents every second on weekends, which makes it safer to walk than to drive.
- Beaches in Barcelona
The seaside in Barcelona was completely run over by industries and there existed no beach for the use of the city’s populace. This was changed in 1992 when the city was chosen to host the Olympic Games. The authorities shifted the industries and converted the seaside area into one for leisure, with lots of restaurants, bars and of course, new beaches!
- Each year, 8 million tourists visit Barcelona, making it Europe’s third most-visited city after London and Paris.
