So, we’ve compiled a list of the best travel destinations in Europe that most people don’t visit. They are “off the beaten path” so to speak. We are sure you want to see them since you are planning to take a trip to some of the most interesting cities in Europe.
Here then is our list of the top three “hidden gem” cities to visit in Europe:
Currently, Wroclaw tops the list of most travelers’ favorite destination in Europe. This beautiful and amazing city, called the “Polish Venice” has canals surrounding it, and it is dotted with over 120 bridges linking 12 superb islands.
The incredible charm of Wroclaw can seduce you, the Market Square “Rynek”, the Salt Market Square, the Flower Market, the two Town Halls, the beautiful University, the Covered Market, the botanical garden and the gorgeous architecture of the Centennial Hall.
For aficionados of a good lunch, you can have a break at Piwinica Swidnicka- this is the oldest restaurant in the world. Take a stroll around Ostrow Tumski, the oldest area of the city and watch as you fall under the spell of the almighty Wroclaw.
The inhabitants of the city are really friendly and warm, and they are ready to share with you their love for the city and its hidden gems.
Pictures or words can’t do justice when trying to describe the atmosphere of this city; you have to feel it yourself. Bilbao is evolutive, ever-changing and open to anyone who wants to visit; unlike most cities in Europe, families with children and grandchildren find the city attractive; they all enjoy the joy and sweetness the evening brings as they stroll through the alleys of Casco Viejo, the historic center of Bilbao.
Like Porto and Bordeaux, Bilbao is linked to the river and the sea. The gastronomy there is awesome, same as the wines.
Make the most of your vacation in Bilbao and take your time to discover the main museums in the city such as the Guggenheim or The Bilbao Fine Arts Museum, and its lovely landscapes like the Rioja Wine Region.
Bilbao has some charming primeval towns surrounding it, like Orduna and Balmaseda. Whatever you do or wherever you go in Bilbao, make sure you don’t miss the Basque Coast, it’s just half an hour away from the center.
You need to feel and experience the beauty of this city. It’s like the most romantic and most charming destination in Europe. You can’t afford to miss the cuisine, the architecture, nice hotels, and so on. Colmar is just too perfect for both young and old; it is the city that makes all travelers from everywhere I the world dream.
In Colmar, there is the Toy Museum; the Unterlinden Museum displaying excellent works of art from the 12th to16th century, there is the Bartholdi Museum as well. Fun fact- remember the Statue of Liberty? The creator was born in Colmar!
