Postcard from Porto

The city is the second in Portugal when it comes to the number of population. As you’ve probably noticed already, its name had an influence on the name of the country. Porto is most famous of its wine, but when you spend a few days here, you’ll discover or experience way more things! Breathtaking architecture, narrow streets hiding interesting places or walks along the Douro river bank are one of my favourites! The second landmark of the city is the double-decked metal Dom Luís I Bridge from the end of 19th century.

The Porto Cathedral (Sé do Porto), built in Romanesque style (greatly altered during Baroque times), is located in the historical centre of the city and marked as the UNESCO landmark.

One tip: when being in Porto, I recommend you to visit Cremosi with delicious cakes and ice cream.
