Here are some of the top places to visit on your next trip to Europe:
Moldova is seriously underrated- mostly because most people have no idea how beautiful it is. If you like the idea of exploring cave monasteries and rolling hills, you’ll love Moldova. The capital city is slow, but if you love the countryside you’ll have a great time exploring the wineries here.
Portugal is still one of the most affordable places to live in Western Europe, but it also offers plenty for more short-term visitors as well. The Alentejo Coast is often skipped in favor of the Algarve, but you’ll be treated to expansive beaches, dusty red soil, and a wild, beautiful landscape.
Montenegro is Croatia’s cousin, with a lot of the same climate, scenery, and architecture. But while Croatia is currently seeing skyrocketing popularity- with the high prices and crowds that popularity brings, Montenegro is much less known. In the 1970s, all the royals and celebrities used to hang out in Montenegro, but this was ended by the conflict in the Balkans. While Montenegro is currently under the radar, it’s guaranteed to be the next big thing so get there stat.
Sure, Croatia is booming in popularity, but poor little Zagreb gets overlooked. This is an excellent place to hang out in Central Europe without spending the type of money you’d spend in places like Vienna, Budapest, or Prague. This is an edgy, cosmopolitan city, packed with coffee drinkers. Hang out in the cafes, check out the restaurants, and browse the farmers’ market here.
Deia is located in Mallorca, Spain. If you’re after a hidden gem, this is one of the best around. You’ll enjoy delicious, healthy cuisine, unspoiled nature, and incredible scenery. If you’re an artist or writer, you’re in good company. And if you’re looking for inspiration, this is the place to stay.
