The Bank holiday may be over to go on your next city break. But with another one at the end of the month and a whole summer to look forward to, it’s time to book those holidays and visit some pretty cool places.
From Portugal to Spain and also Croatia. We’ve got you covered with some of the very best alternative cities you must visit.
Often overshadowed by sister Amsterdam but equally important. Second biggest city and a must-see for weekend explorers. A young and dynamic City to travel to. Rotterdam is blossoming into a hub of architectural innovation. You’ll be mesmerised by the futuristic buildings as well as the Cube Houses on your holiday. Wander inside one of the many museums for a taste of art culture. Our pick: the Kunsthal, a modern art museum that never has a permanent exhibition.
Porto is a vibrant and charming City located on the banks of the river Douro. Not only one of the oldest cities in Europe, but also, the perfect place to visit and experience a wealth of history and culture. Our tip, wander through the cobbled back streets without direction. Then, stop to sample the famous Port wine along the river.
The home of flamenco dancing. Seville offers you a truly Spanish feel. Also experience an exotic air and rich culture. Get to wander around the Andalucian Capital all weekend. At the same time, visit the World Heritage Seville Cathedral. Furthermore, experience La Giralda Bell tower by day or indulge in local tapas as well as dancing the night away by evening.
Croatia’s Capital will be a delightful place to visit this summer. It’s red roof buildings offer something a little different to your sight-seeing. With many galleries and shops, one is spoilt for choice. So grab a coffee and just wander the cobbled streets for hours on end.
Tallinn is a city where 13th Century Gothic architecture meets the future of technology. However, it’s an up-coming city, Tallinn is Estonia’s exciting centre of new possibilities. Nevertheless, we admire the fairy-tale-esque old town and electric night-life. The ultimate place for people looking for a bit of culture intertwined with a lively party scene.
