Book a Barcelona hostel for the European Balloon Festival
People keen on checking out something spectacular might like to get themselves over to Spain next month.

Booking a cheap hostel in Barcelona could be the perfect place to be based at in order to go and check out The European Balloon Festival, which takes place in the province of Igualada.

More than 50 hot air balloons will be on show with their teams at the attraction, which should see around 25,000 people turn up to be wowed by the spectacle.

The organisers stated: "The European Balloon Festival is a concentration, competition, a festival of hot air balloons, which meets the recreational aspect of the flight, the beauty of this sport and competition."

But it will not simply be a case that all the balloons are fired up and venture into the sky at the same time, because there will be a series of activities taking place.

People interested in attending should book a Barcelona hostel from July 8th to the 11th when the festival is occurring and even if individuals do not want to attend every day, it could be useful to go and check out parts of the Spanish city.

This could include the Nou Camp - home of FC Barcelona - for people interested in football.

And those who do not want to miss any of the action should get there early in the morning because that is when the best flying conditions are, as well as late afternoon.

The festival may even provide a unique opportunity for someone to clinch that once in a lifetime chance of flying in a hot air balloon. Individuals who are keen on doing so might like to book in advance for peace of mind, the organisers noted.
