“Liverpool is no longer an ugly, grey industrial city. There are a surprising number of sights, and they’ve done a great job of restoring or repurposing the old buildings. The ugly old storehouses have been magically transformed into attractive apartments.

The locals, meanwhile, are really friendly and funny – anyone we fell into conversation with on the street always made some humorous remark. They love a laugh, and I love that about them. I was also really impressed by how clean the city is.

There’s such a wide range of museums and galleries that even three or four days would only be enough to see a small proportion of them.

For Beatles fans, of course, Liverpool is a place of pilgrimage. I stood in front of the statue of Eleanor Rigby, humming to myself: “All the lonely people, where do they all come from?” (róka, 2014)

“A nice, friendly, laid-back city, and though it’s almost impossible to understand what a Liverpudlian is saying, I’d still recommend it to anyone 😊 The locals are very friendly and happy to help, and the Liverpool FC stadium, The Beatles’ Story and the Liverpool Museum are all must-see sights.

Quiggins Shopping Center is well worth a visit because it has unique features compared to the usual, globalized international chains. By the way, the largest shopping center in the city is St John’s Shopping Center, practical for a simple meal in its food court.
