Written by Garry, last edited by Garry on

Amazing Capitals reveal inspiring and valuable location based support full of relevant knowledge and information with articles written in English. Expats can find necessary formalities, must do’s, things to enjoy, large events and ways to contact other people in similar situations.

I am enormously pleased and proud to present the new Amazing Capitals format launched in Valencia, Spain. This magnificent city located on the Mediterranean shores is a great place for expats to relocate to. Innovative business incubators, water supplier and city administration are one reason. Then there is the sun, the light, the friendliness of locals, and, and, and… Thank you to my launch partners, Ayuntamiento de Valencia, Global Omnium, Oceanografic and La Marina.

View the fresh new design of Amazing Capitals Valencia, which will be rolled out to current locations later in the year.

Meanwhile German locations can be selected above. Neuss and Ruhr, Rhine Ruhr and Dusseldorf are on this site. Beijing, Cracow and Prague are still available in original formats. Enjoy and stay in touch.

Bringing a pet is relatively easy, however, dogs need to be registered when they accompany a family relocating to Düsseldorf.
