Are you thinking about moving to Barcelona? 

No wonder! The capital city of sunny Catalonia has a special charm that makes it undoubtedly one of the most attractive cities in Europe (and perhaps in the whole world). If you are still hesitating, here are some facts that should make the decision much easier!

1. Weather 

Barcelona is known for its blue skies, short winters, and hot summers. In other words, the weather is great almost all year round. You can enjoy the sunshine even in November! The “cold” months, January and February, are also far from freezing. 

2. Architecture 

Barcelona is THE city for architecture lovers. In addition to the spectacular Gaudí buildings like Sagrada Familia and Casa Batlló, Barcelona is home to architectural masterpieces like Mies van der Rohe’s Pavilion and Jean Nouvel’s Torre Agbar. Walking around town never felt so pleasing to the eye!

3. Activities 

There is always something happening in Barcelona. Whether it is theater, art or music, you can always find something to do. Time Out, Barcelona SecretaLe Cool Barcelona and Barcelona Metropolitan are great sources for the latest tips on new things to do.

Barcelona is also a haven for sports lovers. In addition to pumping iron at the gym, you can dive into activities like skateboarding, ping-pong, and kite surfing. The city is surrounded by mountains perfect for hiking and there is the option to do river rafting and even skiing pretty close by.

4. Parties and celebrations

Barcelona is a city that never sleeps. The nightlife offers something for everyone and you can choose between busy clubs, underground venues, concert halls and small, idyllic bars. Reoccurring events like the Palo Alto Market and Brunch in Barcelona are worth experiencing and you should definitely go to Sonar or Primavera Sound festival.

Even if you don't enjoy staying up late at night, you will still gladly take part in the typical Barcelona celebrations like La Mercé and the firework filled neighborhood parties that are organized during summer months.  

5. Food 

If you are a foodie, you will love Barcelona! The city is filled with culinary hotspots that you will not get bored exploring. You can enjoy the traditional Catalan restaurants like Cerveseria Catalana, Can Codina, Can Vilaró and Bar Ramón or you can try more contemporary options like La Pepita and El 58.

6. Work opportunities 

Contrary to popular belief, Barcelona has many interesting work opportunities for international talents. It’s good to remember that the after-effects of the financial crisis that hit Spain in 2008 are not that visible in Catalonia as in other parts of Spain. Multilingual, talented professionals are actually a very sought after resource here! To give an example, we at Babel Profiles are constantly on the lookout for people who speak languages like Dutch, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Swedish or English. We are hiring people for many kinds of positions ranging from sales and logistics to human resources. 

So what are you waiting for? Get packing and see you in Barcelona!
