Porto, Portugal

Porto is the city, which all Portuguese people are in love with. Nevertheless, I always had strange relationship with that place. I always felt that we respect each other, but it was some tension, I don’t know why. But for sure, the city has a character!

After the seminar in lovely Aveiro, I went to Porto to visit my friends, who kindly provided me with accommodation and a tour around the city.

I was very pleased to see that the city is under reconstruction. When I was there in 2015, a huge number of buildings were absolutely ruined and abandoned. The city looked like a ghost town, a good scenery for a gothic movie, but not for living.

Now, Porto was shining, the city was boasting with its new fancy buildings, a huge number of tourists, great wine, francesinha. The city was awake and alive again. I was very happy to see the tough times are over! 😘
