How to spend top weekend in Mexico City - ideas on extraordinary attractions and sites

Mexico City is an ideal place for walking and exploring new areas. A simple unhurried walk on picturesque streets of the city can result in discovering many interesting things. Even landmarks that look quite common at a glance can hide many exciting secrets. Monumento a Álvaro Obregón is one of such places of interest. The monument is open in the university area of Mexico that doesn’t seem to be anything special, so the majority of travelers see the monument during a bus excursion. Travelers, who decide to see the monument dedicated to Alvaro Obregon closer, usually explore it in a hurry and do not pay attention to a steep ladder. However, if you use the ladder, you will reach the observation deck of the monument and will be able to see all the details precisely. Continue climbing and you will appear on the roof that offers a spectacular panoramic view of the nearby square and garden.

Do you want to explore wondrous and mysterious areas of the city? Places like that do exist in Mexico City. Make sure you visit Calzada de los Misterios - it is still not clearly known why the picturesque street was called mysterious. The street is really interesting to explore as there are many attractive looking buildings. The facades of some buildings are decorated with graffiti. There is also an old partially destroyed house on that street. Locals claim that the house is still unsold because of ghosts that live there, not because of the devastating look of the building. The most attentive travelers will also find an old tree, which is also located on that street. The old tree has become famous because of one unusual thing – a cactus lives in the tree hollow, and it’s not known how it manages to grow there.
If you want to make your vacation more exciting by trying something completely unusual, it’s time to hunt benches on the streets! The best way of “hunting” is together with a photo camera because many local benches are true architecture masterpieces. While looking at some of them, it’s even hard to tell at a glance that the unusual construction is a mere public bench. The variety of shapes and materials is incredibly rich. It’s possible to find the unusual benches absolutely everywhere – in parks and avenues, on squares and even in inner yards of some houses. Copyright

If walking in parks and on picturesque avenues has made you hungry, don’t stop in the nearest café and try something different instead, for example, visit the legendary restaurant Hostería Santo Domingo . The oldest restaurant in Mexico City has been continuously serving guests since 1860. The magnificent design in Baroque style has survived till our days in nearly pristine condition. The hall of Hostería Santo Domingo is decorated with interesting vintage elements and beautiful artworks. Having admired collections of old tableware and paintings, start examining the menu that contains all popular national food and drinks.
If you are used to relaxing in more stylish and modern places, simply head to World Trade Center . The center is open in the highest skyscraper in the city. By the way, there is a restaurant, Bellini Restaurante Giratorio, on one of the top floors of the building. Bellini is also known as the highest restaurant in the city. It rotates slowly and has wonderful panoramic windows, so it’s hard to find a better place to admire Mexico skyline. The restaurant makes a full circle in one hour. Budget travelers, who visit Bellini only to enjoy the panoramic views, simply order a cup of coffee and some crackers to spend an hour at the restaurant. That way, they can enjoy the view for a modest pay.
It won’t take long to find a suitable hotel for a comfortable romantic vacation in Mexico City. Villa Condesa remains one of the most romantic hotels in the whole city. It is located … Open
If you are not in a mood to visit restaurants, head to a monastery. More specifically, to the college of Universidad del Claustro de Sor Juana . The wall of the eye-catching building is decorated with a no less beautiful vertical garden. The green wall changes its look several times a year. It is decorated with attractive patterns made of flowers and decorative plants. In the evening, make a romantic walk in Cuauhtemoc district and find the mysterious Nautilus house that looks like a giant shell and is decorated with colorful glass inclusions.
