Thursday: Sevilla Trip ~ Пътуване до Севиля

I was lucky to be able to go to Sevilla for two days with my flat mate to do some work. I am deeply impressed with this Spanish city and its ways. I loved my short stay there so here I will share some information about the city and its history, its people and my stay.

First some information. The city is located in Spain, in the southern province of Andalucia which is one of the poorest regions and one of the most tourist-orientated in the same time. It is the largest and the capital with some 700 000 inhabitants. It has hot and arid climate although the river Gualdaquivir passes through the it. A legend says that the founder of the city is the almighty Hercules. True or not it is at least 2000 years old with many ruin sites from the rule of the Roman empire. 

The trip with plane from Valencia is around 55 minutes. I have to say that honestly the Sevilla airport arrival terminal is the ugliest one I've ever seen in my entire life. Apart of that more about the city, its monuments and my walk tomorrow.


If you want to tell me something, feel free to do it right now...
