From the live blue in Majorelle Gardens to the red walls of the Medina, it is easy to understand why Yves Saint Laurent fell in love with this city. Known as The Red City, if you look closer to the Souk’s tapestries, blankets, fabrics, tiles and spices you’ll find a much more diverse range of colors within this place.

While first impressions show Marrakech as a chaotic universe, I did not take long to fancy the town’s narrow streets and take some pictures for my Instagram account @anaputka. Marrakech is the right place for travelers interested in escaping from the gray landscape of a modern metropolis into a colorful world.
