The best cities in the world for art lovers!

This is a list of cities that, thanks to some of the most talented street artists, look like a walk through an open-air gallery.

Buenos Aires

Liberal laws on street art, a multitude of abandoned buildings, and a Latino flavor for adding color to everyday life make the Argentine capital a free playground for street artists. Art connoisseurs know that Buenos Aires is an amazing art destination thanks to international festivals such as the International Biennial of Contemporary Art of South America and the ArteBA Contemporary Art Fair.

Prague

Since the 1980s, Lennon's wall in the very center of Prague has been full of graffiti inspired by the character and work of John Lennon. During the eighties and the communist regime in Prague, a problem arose when graffiti about Lennon appeared on one wall. Authorities painted the wall, but to this day it is constantly marked with the same type of graffiti, in protest.

Lisbon

Walk less than 10 minutes in any direction in Lisbon and you will inevitably come across some form of street art. Today, walking the streets of Lisbon is almost like walking through an open-air art museum. One that boasts contemporary design and a variety of street art techniques that contain everything from traditional spray paint and stencils to installations created entirely from waste.

New Delhi

The capital of India is known for its chaos on the streets, huge sights, and smells of a wide range of street food, and historical monuments. What very few people know about Delhi is that it has a fascinating art district. The Lodhi Art District in Delhi is India’s first open-air art district painted by over 25 artists from around the world. Namely, in 2016, a festival was organized with the goal of transforming the modest colony of Lodhi into a public art district.

Paris

Paris for centuries attracted artists from all over the world, who came to the City of Light for inspiration. Armed with comfortable walking shoes, you can discover the amazing art scene of Paris just by wandering the streets. Surreal murals and frescoes further contribute to the mystery and beauty of the city. If you are planning a visit to Paris, open your eyes to the local street art.

Reykjavik

Iceland's relatively loose laws on graffiti art have allowed local artists to become creative and express themselves outdoors. You can walk almost any street in the center of Reykjavik and find a diverse range of works by various artists.

Mexico City

From food to museums, there is so much for Mexico City to be proud of - and that includes street art. From the ancient Aztec and Mayan civilizations to political statements, there are a number of works to be admired.

Berlin

The German capital has one of the most important street art scenes in Europe. Urban art covers the entire German capital. As the largest open-air gallery in the world, a lot of effort is invested in maintaining the mural in Berlin due to the weather conditions. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, many artists came from West Germany to the East. The desire to express their newfound freedom through art was widespread. So, a good number turned to the art of graffiti. 

Rome

Millions of tourists visit Rome every year to see museums, monuments, fountains, and city squares. But there is also a successful urban art scene worthy of attention. Such places are sometimes hidden outside the beaten paths, but when you discover them, they will take your breath away.
