Beautiful cosy city with a very high standard of living.

Please ignore the haters in the comments, they are just very envious.

Lookup Barcelona + 4k in Youtube, you will love it.

Impersonal city with angry passive aggressive people. Very high rents and property prices.

I see some jealous people here comment negatively about Barcelona. I have lived 10 years in Sweden and 35 in Barcelona and my experience is that Barcelona is a friendly city, with a lot of entertainment, beauty (both in the city and the people), very modern and acceptable life quality. The salaries may be a bit low but people can still afford to go out and enjoy life more than people do in Sweden since most of people struggle with loans. Many swedish people is very overweight and very unfashionable. People is no friendly, no humble and prepotent. Restaurants and cafes are ridiculous expensive and have no clue about what service is and no clue to make a decent capuccino, Irish coffee or Margarita.

Low incomes with very high rent and unbelievably bad housing, terrible food, bad service everywhere, loud and total lack of elegance in both people and atmosphere. Worse bureaucracy only in Italy and North Africa. Maybe good for a weekend or if you are an adventurer in your early twenties, willing to experiment with drugs (widely available).
