[AD] Whether you want a city break, a beach location, or even a skiing resort, Europe has it all. Since there are so many places to see and destinations to enjoy, it can be challenging to decide where to go. There are many European destinations that people often forget about in our beautiful world! After a lot of research and dreaming of the perfect holiday, below is a list of the top destinations that I think everyone should visit.
Tourists often overlook the capital and largest municipality of Spain, Madrid for its counterpart, Barcelona. The city lies on the River Manzanares and has a rich culture that is evident from when you arrive. Madrid is known for its entertainment, fashion and education, and as well as this, it holds an art status for one of the world’s major leading artistic cities. In 2017, it was named the 10th most liveable city in the world, and its popularity is only increasing over time.
A reinvigorated old town, Bari was once filled with boarded up stores and empty tourist locations. However, after multiple cosmetic changes and a lot of hard work, tourists can’t get enough of this beautiful city. The nightlife is great, but the cocktails on offer here are better, the streets are now safer, and the surrounding beaches will for sure make you want to take Instagram pictures for your following to see. Bari is finally bouncing back into the European spotlight.
Manchester, United Kingdom
Another regenerated city that is worth a visit is Manchester in the UK. Property investment companies like RW Invest have taken advantage of the market with many burgeoning residential and student developments. The city has never seen so much energy and passion. Located in the North West of England, Manchester is full of history, architecture and media links. It’s a popular destination for tourists due to vast shopping complexes, as who doesn’t love to shop till they drop! The regeneration and new developments in Manchester have allowed hundreds of young professionals and students to move to the city, and there are new restaurants and bars are being opened daily.
For all of those food lovers out there, Istria may be your new ideal location. The history of Istria is vast and vibrant, which makes it popular with local Italian tourists and those coming from international countries too. If you visit, you won’t be short of things to do while you’re exploring the city. From gourmet cycle tours during the spring months, to music festivals in the summer, and hunting excursions come autumn. It may not be a tropical Hawaiian island, but the weather during the summer months can get hot, meaning the beaches fill up with visitors quickly!
Once named Poland’s most colourful city, Poznan is nestled towards the North of Poland. Visit places like the old market square, or try a boat tour on Lake Malta. There is an endless opportunity for adventure in Poznan. The gothic architecture and beautifully painted houses are a sight to see. It’s more than worth a visit if you’re around the area, as people often forget about Poznan because there is such an array of things to do elsewhere in Poland.
