Whether you are a football fan or not, it is impossible that you haven’t heard of FC Barcelona that is a football club based in Barcelona. Though the city is constantly related with football but the city of Barcelona has much more to offer.

Have you ever wished to live in a city that will remind you of the fairy tales your grandparents told you?
In that case, Prague is the city for you. The city is the living example of how magnificent the combination of technology and gothic ambience will look like.
The rich history has left numerous landmarks that one may visit to understand the past of the city.
But met me warn you, this city is not for the ones with a weak heart. Why? I don’t want to walk down a street at night where everything looks like a prop from a horror movie. I can’t even go to the washroom alone at night. No need to laugh! The darkness is not my ally.
4. Kyoto, Japan
So you thought Tokyo is the only tourist attraction in Japan?
Everything in Japan is not as weird as some of their game shows, some are beautiful and ravishing.
It is one of the most preserved cities of Japan and hosts over 1,600 Buddhist temples and 400 Shinto shrines. It has some of the finest examples of the well architected palaces. The city was spared the horrors of the World War II as the city held a special place for the Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson.
If you considering removing it from your list of places you will visit on your world tour believing Kyoto are all about religion and temples, you are making a great mistake.
Japan’s television and film industry is located in Kyoto. Along with it, the Japanese food and cuisine is at its finest here.
5. Cairo, Egypt
The city has grown to be one of the most visited cities of the North Africa over the years but even today most of the people recall the tales of mummies and the enormous Pyramids.
The “Mummy” series played a huge role in building my childhood and love for the desert. The oasis is not the only beautiful part of a desert.
The legends of Nile and mythology have drawn tourists from all over the world since a very long time. Football is the most beloved sports here and is a topic of great enthusiasm.
Cairo successfully hosted the 2007 Pan Arab Games.
This is probably the most odd name on this list and that means it is something one should not even think of skipping on a world tour.
