Travel Diary: Valencia - City of Arts and Sciences

Another of Valencia's huge tourist attraction is The City of arts and Sciences. It's a series of elaborate buildings, some structured to in someway represent what they house! For example L'Hemispheric which is an IMAX cinema was constructed to look like a giant eye and the L'Oceanographic, an aquarium, was fashioned to resemble a Water Lily...

Our first stop was the L'Oceanographic which is the largest aquarium in Europe...

Each section houses creatures from specific aquatic conditions such as the Wetlands or the Arctic sections. Although all the sections were pretty impressive, my favourite was the Mediterranean because you just can't beat being surrounded by sharks and fish in a classic aquarium style glass tunnel!

We also visited the Principe Felipe Science Museum, which was full of scientific facts and some lovely pieces of art...

The museum itself is quite overwhelming as there's a lot of topics covered! However the second floor has an area where you can really get involved and play with all sorts of instruments, so if you don't know where to start, thats the place!

Although we only spent a day at The City of Arts and Sciences, there's so much to do and see that we could easily have spent several!
If ever I'm fortunate to visit Valencia again, I will certainly try to block out a couple of days to visit this place again!

Thanks for reading :)
