Hi dear TE friends

This is one of most beautiful places in the Park Of Nations to see the sunrise

In Background we see the Bridge of Vasco da Gama

Under the cable car there one bridge for the people, that links the Oceanarium and the restaurants area.

In foreground we see the Oceanarium Lake with some birds in the water

I hope you like it !

Parque das Nações (English: Nations' Park) is a leisure, commercial and residential area in Lisbon, Portugal. It covers an extensive area in northeastern Lisbon next to the Tagus estuary, formerly used for mainly industrial purposes. The area underwent a tremendous transformation in the 1990s when it was chosen as the location for the Expo '98 World Exhibition. After the exhibition, the area got its current name (although it is not uncommon for the Portuguese to still refer to it as "Expo"), and more transformations occurred such as the new Vasco da Gama shopping mall, the Lisbon's International Fair complex, hotels and many new office and residential buildings. Many attractions built for the Expo '98 remained and keep drawing visitors, such as the Oceanarium, one of the world's biggest aquariums. An estimated 15.000 people currently live in the Nations' Park, which is halved between the Lisbon and Loures municipalities, effectively splitting the local government of the area. There is a movement of citizens requesting the Lisbon's half to annex the one belonging to Loures, thereby integrating the entire area within the Lisbon municipality.
