Visit the amusement Park “Europa-Park”
A few years ago, while living in Freiburg, I realized that not far from the city is the largest amusement Park “Europa-Park” (Europapark), and that we ought to visit it. The Park is located in rust, in the South of Germany. Largest he is 900.000 m? and is the second largest in Europe after Disneyland Paris. In the Park, in addition to numerous attractions, there are also hotels, restaurants, cafés, camping and even 4-D cinema.
The Park was divided into 16 parts, which, as already its name suggests, this Park is provided in the form of European countries: Italy, Holland, UK, France, Austria, Scandinavia, Switzerland, Spain, Germany, Russia, Greece, Portugal and Iceland. Accordingly, the rides carry the character of the country in which they are located, and restaurants offer ethnic cuisine.
Ride all the rides in one day — not physically possible. First, a lot of them, and secondly almost every one of them need to stand in line. The higher, steeper and more dangerous than the ride, the longer the queue. For example, to ride on Silver Star, which is clearly the main attraction, in the queue need to stand at least an hour!

A huge Empire, created by Walt disney in the first half of the twentieth century, today includes, in addition to film and animation studios, a network of amusement parks in the United States and around the world, bearing the name “Disneyland”.

In this post we will talk about “Spanish Disneyland” Park Port Aventura. The Park is located near Salou, an hour’s drive from Barcelona. 6 is visited in Europe and the most visited Park in Spain. Every year there are more than 3 million people. This is a great place where it will be interesting to both adults and children.
I reached the Park by train. Here is the station in Barcelona, with trains to the Park.
The station has many volunteers who will tell you what you need to buy a ticket and how to get to the train. The road to the Park takes about an hour.
I recommend to allocate admission to the Park 2 days. This time is enough to visit the main attractions and shows, and to watch a night show closing time.
