When you are in Europe, you never miss this country – Berlin. Berlin has a population of 3.5 million, making it the second largest city in the entire European Union. It also has a higher population density than average, so you could expect Berlin to be a relatively unlivable city. Surprisingly, Berlin is remarkably green, with more than 2,500 public gardens and parks in the city. Bowie, Einstein, Hitler, JFK and Marx have all helped shape Berlin, which has a history that reaches out and grabs you. The city staged a revolution, was home to Nazis and bombed to smithereens, divided in half and then reunited. Also the museums are a must-visit.
Malta is a beautiful island which has retained a lot of its charm in general, but Marsaxlokk seems to have totally missed the memo of tourism! Dating back to 900BC, this port town is home to huge fish markets, but also a laid-back way of life which is totally authentic and unique to the area. If you want to see real Maltese life, without the trappings of tourism, this is the place to head.
Of course, you can’t visit Turkey and not head to the only city in the world to straddle two continents! Sultanahmet is the historic part of the city where you will find the most touristic attractions to check out, such as the Blue Mosque and the stunning Hagia Sofia, as well as the Grand Bazaar. Taksim is where you will find modern-day life and night-life central, and the Metro system is the way to get around with ease. There is so much to see and do in Istanbul that you should probably dedicate at least a week to see it all.
Although a lot of tourists mainly stick to the Western Europe (and maybe the Northern parts too), there’s a lot of beauty to be explored in the Center and Eastern of Europe as well. Budapest is the living, buzzing, breathing proof for this. Filled with light and gorgeous architecture, Budapest will do
everything in its power to make you feel really amazing there – and yes, the food is a big part of that. Spicy, delicious and warm, Hungarian food will win your heart forever!
Although sometimes people associate the Mediterranean with Greece, Italy, Spain and France alone, the truth is that there are other spots along this emerald-blue sea that are more than worthy of your attention. Croatian Dubrovnik is one of those places. The kind of city that haunts you years after you have visited it. The kind of charm you will take home with you to always cherish its memory.
Venice is a tiny canal city in Italy, and is one of the most romantic and poetic places in the world. One of the most curious sights in all of Italy, Venice has its waterways gripping our imagination, and along with heavyweights like Rome and Florence, Venice has activities that complement its physical allure and surrounding charm.
