One day in Sevilla Things to do in Seville

One Day in Seville Itinerary: Best Andalusian Food, Art & Architecture

Getting ready for spending one day in Seville?

As the city is the one and only, excessively charming capital of the southern Spain province of Andalusia, the experience of a day trip to Seville can be quite massive.

You’ll find am urban Andalusian mix of centuries-old architectural marvels, fully immersed in lush vegetation, jasmine scents and the passionate rhythms of flamenco. A Moorish-Renaissance palace and a gigantic Gothic cathedral reign over the historical center, known as the the labyrinthic Barrio de Santa Cruz.

For me, Seville has always had the air of a vintage postcard. Tallest palms I have ever seen, Mediterranean wildflowers scattered at their feet, quirky fine art, colorful ceramics and intricate archways of the ancient buildings, plus the guitar melodies floating above the cobblestone streets, make Sevilla one the most romantic cities in Europe. Durable through time, though so delicate.

Cultural Center in Bukchon Hanok Village

Bukchon Hanok Village Guide & Map: A Living Story of the Joseon Dynasty (Updated 2023)

A long list of out-of-this-world things to do in Bukchon Hanok Village, Seoul, South Korea. Ready?

The ancient South Korean Bukchon Hanok Village is a rare time-machine neighbourhood. An attraction worth of topping any list of places to visit in Seoul. The village takes you back more than 600 years ago, to the ancient Joseon Dynasty era, while confining pieces of what used to be the lifestyle of the upper class of those times.

In all my travels, I have hardly ever seen such a surprising urban artefact.


Bukchon means Northern Village and it was called so due to its strategic position on the Joseon Map, north of Cheonggyecheong Stream and Jongno.

Traditionally, this was the residential quarter of high-ranking government officials and nobility. Even though some of the old hanoks have been modernized being transformed into the so called fusion hanoks, there are still plenty of well-conserved examples of art and architecture reminding of the ways old Koreans used to live.

Oslo Pass Vigeland Discount

Visiting Oslo on a Pass Review | Is the Oslo Pass Worth It?

Is Oslo Pass worth buying in 2023? A review of the city card opening doors for free transportation and free museum access, as well as discounted meals and shopping in Oslo.  


Oslo is so beautiful! Still, a rather expensive city to visit, explore and fully enjoy.

Thankfully, magical fjords sightseeing, delicious Norwegian food and art spaces can all come with a discount when using Oslo Pass. Acting as an all-in-one complete sightseeing solution for Oslo visitors, the card easily replaces individual museum or transportation passes and discount tickets.

Oslo Pass does com with an upfront cost, but it claims substantial savings for the active tourists.

I had the opportunity to give Oslo Pass a try during November, together with my husband. We love winter trips! Therefore, Oslo was a great destination despite the cold weather. We were there for 4 full days, from Friday to Monday. But the 4 days in Oslo passed so fast that it seemed more like a weekend getaway.

Considering that on Mondays most museums are closed, we used the Oslo pass at the beginning of our trip. More specifically, from Friday to Sunday. And kept a bunch of free things to do and see in Oslo (without a pass) for a Monday morning.
