Lisbon is the westernmost and one of the oldest capitals in Europe. A hundred years older than London! However, not many really ancient buildings have survived to this day. The city was severely affected by the earthquake, as well as by the tsunami and fire that resulted from it. It happened in 1755.
Like Moscow, Lisbon stands on 7 hills, but they are much closer to each other, forming very steep slopes. Our weekend sightseeing will be full of great hiking trails, so be sure to take your comfortable shoes with you. And don't forget the beach amenities - the ocean is only 30 minutes away!

Lisbon is Europe's westernmost capital. There are not too many different sights here, as in 1755 the city was affected by an earthquake and the tsunami and fires that caused it. But very soon it was restored by the Marquês de Pombal and now has excellent safety. In the capital you will notice echoes of the imperial past of the city everywhere. These are mighty cathedrals, majestic palaces, attractive monuments to kings and marquises.
