Barcelona is the brightest and the most modern city of Spain, and one of the most amazing places for spending your Christmas and New Year holidays. If you come here a few days before Christmas, youíll see its magic transformation. In a couple of days all the streets of the city will change. Millions of lights, hundreds of Christmas trees and thousands of fairy-tale characters will occupy Barcelona streets. Wonderful Barcelona holidays full of music and dancing will start. During Christmas holidays there are a lot of musicians, childrenís chorus and dancers in the streets.
From Christmas till January, 6 Feria de Reyes is held in Barcelona. It is the best time to walk around the city, go shopping and enjoy festive atmosphere. Cafes and street venders offer famous Catalan Christmas sweets and hot drinks.
To spend Barcelona holidays you may reserve a room in one of guest houses and hotels located in the historical centre of the city not far from the main places of interest. Simple double room and breakfast within 15-minute walking distance from Barcelona centre will cost you Ä 375 ó 425 per 7 nights.
Having paid the same sum of money, you may rent a 1 room apartment with a small kitchen and your own bathroom. But, in our opinion, in spite of the same price, itís better to have a room in a hotel because you neednít cook breakfasts and always have free Internet.
