Movings To Barcelona
Barcelona Culture and Economy
Barcelona is repeatedly listed among the world’s best cities. It seems to have it all: A spectacular location on the seaside, plus mountains, iconic architecture, splendid weather and authentic neighbourhoods with their own identity. As if that was not enough, the nightlife with bars and restaurants all over the place is truly outstanding. With 1.6 million inhabitants, the city does not suffer the problems of a megacity. Employment in sectors like ITC and Health is particularly strong.
People from all over the world live and work in Barcelona. English and Castilian Spanish are widely understood and spoken. High-class international schools are located in the city. The locals, however, also speak Catalan, which is fairly different from Spanish. The autonomous community of Catalonia has its own ancient traditions, festivities and arts scene. The rivalry with Madrid is reflected in the competition between the football teams of both cities, which has famously lasted for decades. Every new arriving person ads to this multi-layered society.

District-Picks of Barcelona
Barcelona has 10 districts which subdivide into 73 neighbourhoods, the so-called “barrios”. Instead of listing them all, we’ll share a bit of information on the most popular districts in the centre, plus highlight those districts that are increasingly popular among young urban professionals.
- Ciutat Vella: The tourist magnet in the historical heart of the city next to the beaches and the harbour. Home of the famous shopping area “las ramblas” and a zone where important museums (like the MACBA for Modern Art), churches and the city government are located.
- L’Eixample: To the north of the old town, this area is the result of clever urban planning with splendid infrastructure and excellent transport and commerce. With a bit of luck, you might still be able to rent an apartment at a reasonable price.
- Gracia: North of L’Eixample, Gracia is an upmarket district with many luxurious real estates and excellent international schools. It is the home of the famous Parc Güell, a landscaped green area invented by Antoni Gaudi, the architect of the La Sagrada Familia Cathedral.
- Sarria-Sant Gervasi: Far from the centre, the district of Sarria-Sant Gervasi is a good place for families, young professionals and executives alike. Flats are not as costly as in the city-centre, and some very hip cafés and bars add to the relaxed atmosphere.
