The Nations Park -this region of Lisbon hosted the world exhibition in 1998 (Expo 98), offers so much. Contrary to historical center, Parque das Nações attracts visitors with its 21st century modern architecture. (This photo was taken while aboard the cable car)

Lisbon Stadium and the In twin towers -they are apartments and offices buildings named after two of Vasco da Gama’s ships, São Gabriel and São Rafael.

Nations Park- The park was built with the general theme of "The oceans, a heritage for the future" and some 142 countries and international organizations participated. Today it offers a unique and exciting experience. It is an excellent area for walking and for enjoying quiet moments of true culture, leisure and entertainment.

Ocenario de Lisboa - The Oceanarium in Parque das Nações was designed by an  American architect Peter Chermayeff and is the largest in Europe.

Thousands of  animals and hundreds of plants make up the tanks of the Lisbon Oceanarium. It connects Lisbon to the ocean in a unique and fascinating way. Eight thousand animals and plants, from 500 different species and seven million litres of salt water, over the most impressive exhibits you have ever seen.

The Oceanário de Lisboa includes two buildings, connected by a bridge. Its  mission is to promote knowledge of the oceans, educating people  about the necessity of protecting the  natural resources.

  1. The ship reminds me of the paper boats I made when I was a kid. Nice pics. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. That science museum looks interesting. The one after the globe is probably a representation of the moon.

  3. I guess the Water Garden and other structures are spectacular at night! :-)

  4. From all the photos that you've posted, I was definitely smitten by the Water Garden/s and the Marvel Heroes wall -- superb! :)

  5. I never imagined Portugal to be a center of modern art! Wanna go there, Oporto in particular.

  6. Vasco da Gama is everywhere!!! Magellan was Portuguese too but fell out of favor with their King so he went to Spain. And Marvel heroes!!! wow...maybe Stan Lee is Portuguese? Did you go to Fatima?
