The vast exhibition area that was built for Expo '98 to the east of Lisbon has now become a popular attraction for those enjoying art and architecture, fine dining, shopping and leisure. A visit to the expansive and futuristic Parque das Nações is a welcome respite from the bustling city centre.
The 1998 World Fair attracted 11 million visitors to Lisbon. To accommodate a record number of 155 participating countries and organisations, a completely new city district was built on empty land along the Tagus River. After the Expo, the area was renamed Parque das Nações (Park of Nations) and transformed into a residential and business district with luxury hotels, award-winning restaurants, shopping malls, parks, a cable car and one of the world's largest aquariums. This is where old Lisbon shows its modern face.
