RO: Sa ne continuam aventura in Lisabona!!! Sunt sigura ca nu o sa fiu capabila sa acopar totul despre acest minunat oras, ceea ce inseamna ca este intodeuna loc pentru o noua escapada !!!!

EN: A modern, new, commercial look has this area close to Oriente station, where you can spend an entire day without feeling it. You can go shopping in Vasco da Gama Shopping Centre, you can walk and be amazed by the modern architecture or just relax in the park’s areas…

You can see great views from the cabin car if you like a little bit of adrenaline and I am sure that you will love the Oceanarium voted the best in the world where you can see so many different types of fish and sea animals. It is a must on the list … DON’T MISS IT!!!

RO: O fata moderna, noua, comerciala are zona apropriata statiei Oriente, unde poti sa petreci o zi intreaga fara sa simti. Poti face cumparaturi in centrul Vaso da Gama, te poti plimba si fii cu ochii in patru pentru a surprinde arhitectura moderna sau te poti relaxa in zona paracurilor…

Deasemenea, daca iti place un pic adrenalina poti face o tura cu telecabina si vei fi uimit de privelistea oferita. Sunt sigura ca vei iubi Ocenarium / Muzeul Acvatic votat ca cel mai bun din lume, unde poti vedea atata de multe tipuri de pesti sau aminale acvatice. Este absolut necesar de vizitat…. Nu-l rata!!!

EN: Now let’s go a little bit outside the city to the district of Belem, where it is a must to go to the Casa Pasteis De Belem, will stop here first because you need a coffee and the best Portuguese desert Pasteis de Belem. Pastel de Belem is a custard tart that is sprinkled with cinnamon and powdered sugar. The chaotic cafe and bakery have been selling Pastel de Belem for over 150 years, and no trip to the Belem district is complete without eating at least one of these if you resist the temptation!!!

EN: The Torre de Belem is a small fort that was constructed as part of a defense line to protect Lisbon’s early harbor and was positioned in the middle of the Rio Tejo (River Tagus) small outcrop of rocks. The Torre de Belem was completed in 1521 and was much more than a defensive position for the sailors who crossed the Atlantic or rounded the Cape of Good Hope to India. Also, just a fantastic construction !!!

RO: Torre de Belem este un fort mic, care a fost construit ca parte a unei linii de apărare timpuri, pentru a proteja portul Lisabonei si a fost pozitionat in mijlocul Rio Tejo (raul Tajo), pe un afloriment mic de roci. Turnul din Belem a fost finalizat in 1521 si a fost mult mai mult decat o pozitie defensiva pentru marinarii care au traversat Atlanticul sau Capul Bunei Sperante in India. De asemenea o constructie uimitoare !!!

EN: The Padrao dos Descobrimentos is an imposing and iconic monument located on the River Tagus banks in Lisbon. The structure is dedicated to the adventurers and explorers who helped establish Portugal as a 14th-century superpower. The original Padrao dos Descobrimentos was constructed from wood and were the central piece for the 1940 world fair. The present reincarnation dates from the 1960’s when the trend was of imposing and mighty concrete structures. The 52m tall monument dominates the shoreline and manages to combine both grandeur with finely carved details.
