Austria is famous for its classical music, beautiful architecture and delicious food (Schnitzel, apple strudel).
Vienna was the first city in Western Europe I’ve visited and I totally fell in love with it. It’s one of my favourite destinations for a city break.
Vienna is great for all interested in classical music, history and architecture. Also, the city hosts one of the best Christmas markets in Europe.
Belgium is known for its medieval towns, chocolate, waffles and beer. It’s a great destination for all architecture lovers and foodies.
Brussels and Bruges are must-see cities. So, if you’re visiting Belgium for the first time, be sure to add them to your itinerary.
Ghent is charming and not so touristy. Plus, there is a castle (I’m a huge castle fan). It really worth visiting if you have enough time.
Bulgaria is my home country. It’s a small, but beautiful country in Eastern Europe, famous for its rose oil and nature. Bulgaria is a cheap destination, perfect for foodies, beach and mountain lovers.
Sofia is administrative, while Plovdiv is the cultural capital of the country. Both sites are must-see.
The Czech Republic is world-famous for its beer. In fact, here you can find the highest beer consumption per capita in the world!
Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is one of the most magical cities in Europe.
One of the most romantic countries in Europe. France is the place to go if you’re on a honeymoon or a romantic trip. Also, it’s a great destination for all looking for rich history, magnificent architecture and fine food.
Paris is the most popular city and the capital of the country. However, if you’re visiting France in December, I’d recommend going to Strasbourg. The city is known as the Christmas capital of Europe.
Germany is one of my favourite countries in Europe. And I try to visit it at least once a year. The country is famous for its beer, castles and half-timbered towns. Also, this the place to start with, if you want to experience the Christmas markets in Europe.
If you’re visiting for the Christmas markets, Id’ recommend going to Nuremberg, Munich or Berlin. For castles, Rhine River (near Koblenz) is the best place to go.
Budapest, the beautiful capital of Hungary, is often called the Paris of the East. It totally deserves its nickname (plus it’s a lot cheaper than Paris)!
A stunningly beautiful city, Budapest is a perfect city break for all interested in history and architecture. It’s also a great option for a romantic getaway.
Italy is one of the most enticing countries in Europe. With its beautiful landscapes, rich history and delicious food it will take your heart forever. I’m a big fan of Italian food and I try to visit the country at least once a year.
Italy is full of magical places. If this is your first time to the country, start with the big three – Rome, Florence or Venice.
Romania is most famous for its connection to the legend of Count Dracula. However, the country is so much more than this! A cheap destination with charming small towns, beautiful nature and delicious food.
Bucharest is the capital city of Romania. It’s an energetic city, full of Belle Époque buildings, perfect for all architecture lovers. Bucharest is also home to a thriving hipster culture and excellent nightlife.
Besides Bucharest, a must-see are Peleș and Bran Castles.
For me, Scotland is one of the most beautiful countries in Europe. It had my heart the moment I stepped a foot in Edinburgh.
Known for its whisky, nature and Loch Ness monster, Scotland is a must-visit when in the UK. Its capital, Edinburgh is a gorgeous medieval city full of history and charm.
The biggest city in the country is Glasgow. If you have enough time you can dedicate a day for this lively city with Victorian buildings.
Other popular places are Loch Lomond, Highlands, Isle of Skye and Stirling Castle.
Slovakia is a small country with a rich history. It’s known for its beautiful landscapes, quaint villages and castles.
