“Mostly empty (at least in October)”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Interesting train station by the great architect Calatrava, decent shopping centre, OK aquarium. Otherwise a strange absence of people living, working, playing in all of the monumental scale waterfront public spaces. Another less than successful urban renewal driven by a Worlds Fair or Olympics?

“Boring as hell”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

I was so bored in my tour to this place, really boring, ugly and lifeless. I am glad I was in a boat and we didn't stay there for too long... not worth it.

“Outdoor walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Not much to see in the attraction but it's perceived the hugeness and import the site had for the old fair. The oceanario and the cable car are nice places to go.

“Great place, big space full of activities and events”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

In Parque das Nações you can enjoy a lot of vary activities: shopping, sea world, walking by the river, sports, jogging, biking, gambling, ballet, music concerts, sailing, skating, eating, drinking, dancing etc... During the sunny wekends its full of people and families just enjoying the place. From my point of view the best time fo day to enjoy it is at the end of the afternoon when the people who live there start to walk, jooging etc

“Great day by the river!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

The park really is amazing. The setting along the river is fabulous and the views are stunning.
The park as a whole has so much to do that you could easily spend a couple of days and manage to fill them. You have things such as the gardens which are great to walk in and even the cable car which gives you great views across the river and of the city at a reasonable price. There's the Vasco da Gama shopping centre which is excellent and also a big casino as well as one of Lisbon's main concert venues.
One of my favourite parts of the park is the aquarium which was very enjoyable.
All in all this whole area is a bit of calm amongst the bustle of Lisbon and I'd recommend a trip here to anyone.
