THE COLORS OF NEW ORLEANS
i first visited new orleans almost three years ago and from the moment i saw this beautiful city i knew that i will visited again. new orleans is an amazing mixture between african, european and american cultures. it is popular with its kitchen (which i have to admit i don't like so much, because of it's luck of vegetables and mostly fried meals), music and of course stunning architecture and beautiful colors.
THE FRENCH QUOTER
the most popular and actually iconic place for new orleans. it is an amazing explosion of colors, architecture and textures. well, also bars, but for me personally is not why i love so much this part of the city.
bevolo gas and electric lights began in the french quarter in 1945 and since then produces gas lamps. still there you can see how this gas lamps that are all over the city, are created.
THE ACE HOTEL
The beautiful Ace Hotel with its stunning design perfectly suits the atmosphere of new Orleans
interesting stories are hidden behind the beautiful doors of the nowadays restaurant cellardoor (unfortunately it was closed while we were there). Housed in a former brothel This is one of the most unique historic buildings in all of New orleans
THE NEW ORLEANS PHARMACY MUSEUM
This is an interesting and very old museum. For me it is a great example of beautiful typography, lovely graphic design and many vintage bottles.
THE WAREHOUSE DISTRICT
quoter with beautiful buildings. here are located the art museums and it is a perfect place to walk around and feel the atmosphere
half an hour away from downtown New Orleans and the urban atmosphere changes completely.
this is a neighborhood where you can not only see the polished tourist parts of the city but also meet real New Orleanians.
THE GARDEN DISTRICT
beautiful, beautiful old houses.
the iconic cemetery that has been seen in many movies. it has amazing color pallets but it is quite poplar tourist destination so i recommend you to visit it in the early morning.
