“Parque das Nações (“Nations Park”) is the newest Lisbon district, created for the Universal Exhibition of 1998 (Expo '98 World Exposition). Highlighting the modern train station (Gare do Oriente) design by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, whose ceiling is an arborescent structure of glass and steel with a great luminosity. The big green spaces areas invite to a bike tour, run or simply a riverside relaxant walk. Along the entire area there are a lot of open spaces that allow you to exercise, meditate, play games and maybe get wet while playing with the interactive pull-outs or visiting the water garden. If you feel tired you can also take a cable car “gondola” ride (aerial lift) and enjoy the amazing view from a height of 30 meters (60 feet). Here you can also find a huge variety of bars and restaurants, a large commercial surface, some entertainment and cultural spaces like Altice Arena, the Oceanario, the Lisbon Casino and the Pavilhão do Conhecimento - Centro Ciência Viva .”

Aquarium
“Not only is this one of the largest aquariums in the world, it's also one of the best designed. Although the over 25,000 sea creatures seem to be swimming together, sharks are separated from smaller defenseless fish by invisible acrylic walls. It's the first aquarium to place all world ocean habitats together, and presents several marine species, from the curious round stingrays to the giant sunfish, seahorses, otters and penguins... In 2017 it inaugurated a new sardine tank. The main building, rising from the Tagus, was built for the 1998 World Fair, while an annex was inaugurated in 2011 to house sea turtles. The main attraction is the gigantic tank visible from four different levels, where high-tech displays explain everything in different languages. ”
