Cities with a Burst of Colors: A Dekko

There's a lot more to a city than simply cement, steel and diligent work. The color of a city's structures and the innovativeness of its inhabitants can turn a dull, meek looking town into a thing of dynamic excellence. Imagine a scenario where you could live in a city loaded with such supernatural hues, and stroll through boulevards that are a consistent indication of the rainbow. Well, from the favelas of Rio de Janeiro to the Blue City of Jodhpur in India, we take you today through some of the world’s most colorful cities. Come!

Colors have such an aura that even the dullest moment can transform into a lively picture in a cinch. So if you are seeking for some visual therapy, and are pretty bored of the same cityscapes, then come aboard, for we are taking you through some of the world’s most colorful cities where you will feel no less than strolling through kaleidoscopic tunnels of fantasies. Delve--

  1. Nyhavn, Denmark

This peaceful neighborhood facing the Copenhagen harbor in Denmark is a well known territory with both local people and travelers. The numerous bars and eateries make a perfect area to unwind along the channel or to go partying like a rock star. Make sure that you visit number 9, the oldest building in Copenhagen, erected in 1681. Danish author Hans Christian Andersen stayed at number 18 for a few years.

2. St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada

The city of St. John’s on the island of Newfoundland is apparently Canada's most brilliant city, a trademark as opposed to its generally cold atmosphere. The social pearl of its area, St. John’s highlights numerous museums, art exhibits and urban parks throughout its sloping seaside environs. In the hip segments of the city, low-ascent structures have been painted in a lively cluster of colors, a visual quality that is perceptible even from the boats that cruise by. With regards to colors, there's nothing dull about this city on the easternmost point of North America.

3. Wroclaw, Poland

The capital of Lower Silesia is one of the most vibrant urban areas of Poland, with an extensive variety of attractions for any tourist, including several bridges, fine eateries and cafes, and more. But all this is overshadowed by the most striking character of this city, which happens to be the numerous lanes of houses. These structures, developed with an antiquated architectural planning, breath life into the city’s avenues with their superbly brilliant colors, and add to the city another life and vivaciousness.

4. Kulusuk, Greenland

Greenland has a lot of colorful houses that light up the generally grim scene here. A decent illustration is the settlement of Kulusuk situated on a little rough island. This small town is the passage to east Greenland. You can discover stunning vistas of the colossal ice sheets in the Denmark Strait and East Greenland's sublime mountains. Kulusuk has one hotel built in 1999 and a youth hostel.

5. Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

The favelas (or down towns) of Rio de Janeiro can be troublesome and risky for the individuals who call them home. More than 11 million Brazilians live in favelas like those in Rio, where sanitation, running water and even police access are not ensured. But ironically, if you see them from afar, there is something very stunning about them. Their colors!

Now, the next time your camera is dying of dearth of colors to capture in its lens, then we’d recommend you to trace your steps to one of the above mentioned places to give a visual treat to your eyes. Bon voyage
