Europe is rich in fascinating histories, cultures, and traditions, as well as various natural landscapes. Despite being the second-smallest continent in the world, it is nonetheless full of surprises and wonders, meaning that every country can offer you a completely different travel experience from its neighbor. Our travel guides will help you as you plan your trip to the Old Continent. It will be an experience you will never forget.
With 44 countries to choose from (or even 51, if you include transcontinental countries such as Russia and Georgia), planning a trip to Europe can be difficult to decide where to go. But no matter what, you are guaranteed to have a memorable experience. Whether you are an experienced solo traveler, a first-time holidaymaker, a thrill-seeker, or someone who likes to take it easy, you’ll find that Europe offers something spectacular for everyone.
When planning a trip to a European country, most people (especially those visiting for the first time) head to the capital city. This is often a great choice: cities like London, Paris, Barcelona, and Amsterdam have so much to offer. The poet Goethe famously said that ‘the day I set foot in Rome’ would be the day that he would ‘be born a second time, to have really risen’ and gone to heaven. Visiting a capital city can also be a good way to get a taste of the country and its unique characteristics before you dive in further. But it’s also important not to forget the mosaic of destinations that these countries have to offer. We’ve selected some of Europe’s more hidden gems below.
If you think that having a tight budget means you can’t enjoy a European getaway, then you’ll be glad to hear that you’re wrong! There are in fact plenty of economical destinations where you can enjoy yourself to the fullest for a rather small price. Take the Czech Republic for example, where a beer costs around $0.90 USD! It’s an added bonus that most countries in Europe do not require you to have any additional vaccinations. All of these things mean you’ll have more money to enjoy yourself and explore everything that Europe has to offer.
