Bilbao is an industrial port city in the north of Spain, surrounded by picturesque mountains. It is a modern metropolis with skyscrapers and the unofficial capital of the autonomous community of the Basque Country. The Guggenheim Museum, designed by Frank Gehry, brought him great fame. The opening of the museum in 1997 caused a great stir. It houses the most famous works of modern art, but the attention of tourists is most often attracted by the original curves of the building itself, which is faced with titanium sheets.
