“Modern part of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We stayed close to parque das nações and it's a very convenient area with a mall with a good selection of fast food restaurants as well as more traditional ones, cinema and a diversity of shops, outside close to the river a few more restaurants and don't miss the opportunity to take a walk, it's even nicer in the evening.

“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
