6 reasons why London is the best place to visit [Gallery]

Welcome back!

Long time no see. After my last four posts I had difficulties to write once again. Lack of inspiration? Maybe… Iceland is hard (or impossible) to beat. This country inspired me to set up this blog and I haven’t experienced such incredible scenery as I did there. But hey! There are many more places in the world that are also worth visiting and worth taking a shot!

This time I am going to take you to a completely different place with very high density of awesomeness per square meter, vivid nightlife and places well-known to people from all over the world. Quoting one of the main characters from my favourite sitcom: “It’s all London Baby!”

London with the population of over 8 million people is the third biggest city in Europe and you can feel that when you move around the city both during the day and in the night. Yes, it is extremely expensive, but it is a good value for money :). Everyone can find something that suits him or her. What appealed the most to me? Firstly, dozens of green, quaint parks and gardens. There you can enjoy distinct types of entertainment ranging from doing sports, through chilling with friends to playing with squirrels (and other animals). Secondly, I loved distinctive Camden Town, which might not be the safest district in London, but probably the most fascinating one. Today, Camden Town offers bunch of market stalls with everything you can imagine, beautiful buildings, food of all the cuisines you can think of, original English pubs and most of all vibrant and diverse atmosphere spread across the district.
