Spain comes to mind when we say Flamenco, Tomato Festival and Bullfighting. Even though everything oscillates between "siesta" and "fiesta" in this country on the Mediterranean coast, they come across with quite surprising details. Want to learn interesting information on Spain?
I can show you Spain as the most exotic country in Europe with its people who are tolerant of travelers, relaxed lifestyles, lively nightlife, cuisine and festivals full of seafood and special tastes.
It is one of the common dreams of all travelers to live every moment to the fullest in the country where the Roman Empire and Andalusian Umayyads left behind, leaving a glamorous legacy.
The Eiffel Tower was originally intended for Barcelona, Spain, but this project was built in Paris because it was rejected by the government.
It must be quite annoying to reject such a structure that attracts millions of tourists every year. There are people who still feel very sorry for this, probably in Spain; It means loss of billions of Euros for a country.
Initially, it was decided to be temporary when it was criticized by the artists of the unwanted time in Paris. When he became famous, this decision was abandoned.
The "La Tomatina" festival, one of the most famous festivals in Spain, is held in the city of Bunol with the participation of 40 thousand people. Throughout the festival, people throw trucks of tomatoes at each other and paint the whole city red.
Siesta is actually called resting by having a short nap during lunch break, which is famous in Mexico. Fiesta means to party as we know it.
Did it cross from Spain to Mexico? I don't know whether it is from Mexico or Spain, but in 2 countries they are pretty good at this.
Spain is one of the countries where the most festivals are held in the world. The most prominent of these festivals in terms of subject are bullfights, carnivals and music festivals. In short, they always have a reason to party.
It is possible to find dozens of different wines for 1 euro in most of the markets. The reason it is cheap is that storage tanks are imported from France and bottled in Spain.
There are elevators only up to the 20th floor of a giant skyscraper in Spain. The rest of the building, which has a total of 47 floors, is reached by stairs. After the contractor went bankrupt during the construction of the building, financial problems were experienced and the elevator was not built.
You can find many building contractor stories like this in Spain. I don't know if they do it as a symbol in bankruptcy or death situations or I don't know if it's weird advertising work, but it's quite interesting.
It is believed that the first modern man 32,000 years ago came from Spain
It writes that the first modern man in history appeared in Spain. They kiss and greet on the cheek to everyone they meet; but men and women urinate in the street.
You can leave your thoughts about the Spanish understanding of civilization in the comments.
The first civilized human part is a historical view, but I think the wandering spirit must have taken him there.
Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world. Approximately 500 million people speak Spanish. The majority of this population constitutes the South American continent.
If you want to reason why that is, because they made "geographical discoveries" and "colonialism".
The stadium of FC Barcelona is the largest private stadium in the world with a capacity of 100,000 people.
Moreover, in 2022 this number will be 108 thousand; In 2027, it is planned to be 135 thousand.
On match days, everyone in the city of Barcelona is dressed in burgundy-blue colors. When they are defeated, the city goes silent; When they win , as you guess, they go “Fiesta”.
