10 Most Colorful Cities in Europe

Europe’s cities are full of surprises, sprinkled with a great deal of thrilling sights and attractions. This time, I decided to emphasize color. Let’s go on a virtual adventure and discover 10 cities filled with color, where you’ll explore gorgeous, picture-perfect spots.

1. Stockholm, Sweden

Built on 14 islands in the Baltic Sea, Stockholm is one of the most beautiful and colourful capitals in the world. It’s definitely one of the most amazing cities I’ve had the chance to explore so far and delights its visitors with a flawless urban structure. Plus, Stockholm is the place where the prestigious Nobel Prizes are awarded, so how can you refuse my invitation to check it out?

Back in Stockholm – Must-See Sights

The city is easily distinguished by its wonderful architecture marked by astonishing, vibrant colors. Thousands of houses painted red, orange, yellow, scarlet, or green follow a pleasant uniformity, looking like they’re carefully painted on a gifted artist’s canvas. These cheerful buildings, together with countless green spaces, clean air and a bunch of famous, must-see tourist attractions are marvellous features of the Swedish capital.

Stockholm’s downtown, Norrmalm, is a district that harmoniously manages to combine historical monuments, restaurants, fashionable stores, and a special area for pedestrians.

Take a stroll along the shore and admire the variety of colors. Another precious tip I want to share with you is to save one day to see Gamla Stan (Old Town), regarded as the authentic Stockholm and one of Europe’s largest and best preserved medieval city centers.

2. Barcelona, Spain

Even though I’ve seen tons of beautiful places, Barcelona was instant, one-of-a-kind love at first sight. They say that this city has its feet in the water, its back resting on the Collserola hills and its arms filled with stunning gifts: history, monuments, arts, football, fashion, urban landscapes and citizens who adore their town.

But how can Barcelona be best described? A bright city with a unique identity. A city of art and history. Gaudi’s place. A cosmopolitan city. Alive. Creative. Seductive. A monumental town. A city gathering a bunch of appealing little things. The options are endless.

New York City is the most populous city in the United States and has a reputation as the most vibrant and thrilling vacation destination on the continent.
