Built for Expo 98, Parque das Nacoes still remains popular and is home to one of Lisbon's most interesting sights, the Ocenario, Europe's largest oceanarium (and the third largest in the world).

The Parque lies on a large area of north east Lisbon, just below the Vasco da Gama bridge. With tree lined walkways, traffic free streets, a water garden, a science museum and of course the aforementioned Oceanarium it's not surprising that this is such a popular place to visit.

However some of the sites have closed down since the Expo. The bowling centre is no longer there while the Torre Vasco da Gama in the north of the park is about to become a hotel.

You can buy a ticket for 16.50 Euro which covers entry to many attractions of the park and gives discounts on food and bike hire. This seemed like a good deal for us until we discovered the science museum is for kids and the restaurants offering 15% discount were very difficult to find. The two most interesting things we saw were the Oceanarium and the cable car ride and you can buy separate tickets for these cheaper than the general entry ticket.
