the truth is we love Lisbon but the city has been very bad treated by the lasts mayors and acumulated many problems. Lisbon face´s today many challenges ands problems that and im sure wiil be solved in the future.
lots of air polution ( CO2 -2 worst capital in Europe i think)
many traffic jams
small metro network,and few investments in transports, none km´s of ciclopaths and sidewalks in bad shape
historical centre degradated and with old ( and getting older ) population
lack of life at night ( associated with crime and drugs and few population living at the centre )
dont take me wrong but we just believe Lisbon can be a major turistic "hotspot" in Europe, like Barcelona traject( there are some similiarities between cities)
lots of potencial in Lisbon to explore believe me
this problems are identified a long time ago. the city is now going under elections. wherever the result Lisbon must improve very badly in the next decade..
p.s the best of living in Lisbon is the beaches (so many its hard to choose ), the sun and esplanades ( drinking Super Bock :cheers: )
