The beguiling ways of Barcelona know no bounds. From the hallucinatory works of Antoni Gaudi to the world-famous Camp Nou, the capital of Catalonia remains one of Europe's most absorbing cities.

Follow Ruki Karjalainen's two-minute journey as he documents a few of his favourite things about Barcelona.

"For me, filmmaking has always been a way to understand experiences in a new dimension. Looking afterwards these moments, offers a way to understand myself better. I knew this trip would be one of those experiences that I want to share with myself and you.

"As a FC Barcelona supporter ever since I become acquainted with football at age of seven, every season I've been dreaming of witnessing the biggest rivalry in the world – El Clasico. In addition to the beautiful game, other days were spent in terms of my other passions, hiking and aviation. Three elements that only mattered in the hassle of the city. A journey worth remembering by every breath taken."

Filmed with Sony A7s, Canon 24-105mm and Canon 100-400mm.
