Europe Travel & Vacations
Barcelona is the capital of the Region of Catalonia in Spain, Europe. It is also a magical city of fanciful buildings, neverending nightlife and home to tasty tapas.

Barcelona has many quarters, but the most important and interesting for the visitors are:
  • Ciutat Vella - Barcelona's old town, including the medieval Barri Gotic.
  • Eixample - Modernist quarter, noted for its art nouveau buildings
  • Grêcia - Historically a working class neighborhood, now rather gentrified, and very lively
  • Barceloneta - Historically a fisherman's quarter

    Europe encompasses an area of 10,400,000 kmē (4,000,000 square miles), stretching from Asia to the Atlantic, Africa to the Arctic. There is much here for the traveller to enjoy, with a bewildering array of diversity and culture, cosmopolitan cities and spectacular scenery. Europe defies easy categorization, with its compact size and complex history. The following are five (loosely defined) regions. European Regions: Western Europe, Central Europe, Northern Europe, Eastern Europe, Mediterranean Europe
    • Western Europe - Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg), the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and France;
    • Northern Europe - Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark;
    • Central Europe - Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Liechtenstein, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Transylvania and Switzerland;
    • Eastern Europe - Armenia, Azerbaijan, the Baltic states, Belarus, Bulgaria, Georgia, Moldova, Romania, Russia and Ukraine;
    • Mediterranean Europe - Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Macedonia, Malta, Monaco, Portugal, San Marino, Serbia and Montenegro, Spain, Turkey and Vatican.


    There are no border controls between countries that have signed and implemented the Schengen Agreement. Likewise, a visa granted for any Schengen Agreement signatory country is valid in all other countries that signed and implemented the treaty.

    These countries are: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland (voted in, but not yet formalised, nor implemented). Note that not all EU members have signed the Schengen treaty and not all Schengen treaty countries are members of the European Union.

    At some airports, airlines will still insist on seeing your id-card or passport. Travel to and from a Schengen Agreement country to any other country will result in the normal border checks.

    The Inter Rail (for Europeans) and Eurail (for everybody else) passes offer good value if you plan on traveling extensively around Europe (or even a single region) and want more flexibility than cheap plane tickets can offer. As of 2006, Eurail covers the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland. The most notable omissions compared to Inter Rail are Republic of Macedonia, Morocco, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.

    A number of budget airlines allow very cheap travel around Europe, often much cheaper than the train fares for the same journey. Currently the cheapest flights are offered by low cost airlines such as Easyjet, HLX, Ryanair, Transavia and Jet2, with the lowest fares usually found on routes which go to or from cities in the United Kingdom, Germany, Ireland or Eastern Europe. All of these flights should be booked on the internet well in advance, otherwise the price advantage can become non-existent. Always compare prices with major carriers like British Airways or Lufthansa! You should also make sure where the airport is located, since some low cost airlines name very small airports by the next major city, even if the distance is up to two hours drive by bus (e.g. Ryanair's Frankfurt-Hahn, which is not Frankfurt/Main International).
