Expo The Parque das Nações (Park of the Nations) was the site of the Expo ‘98. This exhibition has been the engine of a complete remodelling of this former industrial area, and the result is astonishingly and positively surprising. It is true that the most prestigious architects of the world built here many superb buildings like the Oriente railway station, the 14km long Vasco da Gama Bridge and Tower or the Portugal Pavillion. But after the Expo, the area also kept its full activities and attractiveness for both locals and tourists with the Oceanarium of Lisbon, the Pavilhão Atlantico with major top star concerts and Casino Lisboa recently opened. It also became the new heart of the business city with plenty of headquarter offices, restaurants and shopping areas. Not to be too isolated from the historical part of the city, the Expo offers good transportation facilities with metro or bus links with other part of the capital.
