People like colors – that’s just how we are wired. Nature has plenty of vibrant hues and gorgeous mixes, but that’s usually not enough for us. We need to color our own ‘habitat’ as well! Most cities feature a modest palette of colors that aren’t too gaudy, sometimes verging on boring. There’s a reason for it – if everything was too colorful, we would soon get tired of it just as much as we would from houses painted in grey. Nevertheless, some people go against the traditional coloring and come up with some really stunning solutions. Here are 10 of the most colorful places in the world.
Poland – Stary Rynek Square in Poznan
The heart of the city is colorful like a kid’s dream. With bars, restaurants and an abundance of street performers, the center of the city draws tourists from all over Europe. No two buildings have the same design or painted the same color, yet somehow they all look beautiful together!
Mexico – a mural neighborhood
We should thank the Mexican government for this amazing masterpiece. Instead of banning graffiti they made full use of it! German Crew, sponsored by the government itself, created by far the largest mural in the country and probably on the whole planet as well!
Singapore – Alkaff Bridge
Built in 1997, this spectacular bridge is the most vibrant bridge in the world. It was colored not so long ago by the Filipina artist Pacita Abad. She used more than 800 liters of paint to create this colorful masterpiece.
California – The Saguaro Hotel
When we talk about hotels we rarely envision something as bright as this hotel in California. The Saguaro Palm Springs, features 245 rooms and a special menu that will cater to the pickiest eaters and food lovers. It’s like a dream come true!
