Browsing the most colourful cities from around the world will make you realize they all have something in common. Beside looking awesome, they all seem happy and lively.
Think about it – you go out in your city, look around and only see grey buildings, that’s not really a mood booster and can even make you feel worse.
Do an experiment, visit a city with great reviews but not so colorful than go ahead and pick a city from this list and visit it too, then figure out in which of them you felt better. The impact of colors on how you feel can be greater than you ever thought. A city’s architecture probably comes in a close second place after its people when it comes to making a long lasting impression on you, when it comes to giving you that wanderlust feeling you love.
Visiting any of these colorful cities you’ll learn there’s a strong connection between the vivid architecture and their inhabitants. It won’t just be a pleasure for the eye or a place you’ll take hundreds of photos, you’ll feel the locals warmth and friendliness, and that’s what makes a great city break, right?
If you know any other city that is filled with color, we’d love to hear about it, don’t keep it to your self, comment under the photos!
