There is so much to do in Europe these days and with open borders and cheap flights it’s even easier to visit those places you’ve always wanted to go.
But where to start? Well, the following are my top 5 European cities (that I’ve visited so far) and some of the things that I really enjoyed seeing and doing there…
– concerts in Burg Square – just amazing to be listening to a band outdoors in such architecturally travelguidebook amazing surroundings
– eating mussels and chips in a restaurant in the centre of the old town
– breathing in the perfumes at the Viru gate flower market
– listening in at the annual international choir festival
– eating dumplings and broth at an old town restaurant
– buying some morning-after aspirin at the world’s oldest functioning apothecary!
– wandering down the Champs Elysees on a sunny day and admiring all the beautiful people
– Paris Marathon – watching the runners stream past from a vantage point next to the Louvre
– walking through the stunning Brandenburg Gate and trying to imagine how it looked when the city was divided
– Checkpoint Charlie – with various street sellers offering assorted rubble for sale as “genuine” pieces of the Berlin Wall
– a night out in the vibrant Potsdamer Platz that is now the cultural heart of Berlin.
– magical restaurants and art galleries, interspersed with pretty cobbled streets (take good walking shoes!)
– incredible architectural sights such as the Astronomical Clock, Charles Bridge & Wenceslas Square.
– visit at Easter and try the Old Town Square for its fabulous 3 week long market.
For some virtual tours of Prague see these panoramic images.
I hope the above is useful. Enjoy your trip!
