Here are a few gorgeous European cities which I visited and enjoyed very much. These are the cities of Paris, Edinburgh, Prague, Cologne, Vianden and London!
I’ve visited Disneyland twice, but the city Paris itself only once. I spent almost a week there with my Journalism class for our project abroad. I hardly speak a word of French, but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Especially going to Montmartre at night with two classmates of mine, who knew their way around the French capital city, was an evening I shall cherish for the rest of my life. Beware of the slightly annoying flower salesmen though! They’re relentless!
I visited this city twice in the summer of 2011. First with a friend of mine, and the second time with my family. The Edinburgh Zoo is a great place to spend the afternoon, as long as the weather is dry! The Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace are two of my other favourite places in the Scottish city. There are loads of fantastic restaurants and bars at the Royal Mile. One of the best in my opinion is Garfunkel’s. Good food, good service, reasonable prices.
A city I also visited twice so far. Loads of old and majestic buildings, which makes the city a top location for not only architects but also everyone who enjoys historical sights. Near Prague Castle are a few gorgeous restaurants where you can eat outside when the weather is dry. The views are spectacular. Also, sit down on the square at the castle and just enjoy the change of the guards and the hundreds of tourists who walk around there. If you’re lucky, you can hear what one of the many guides of tourist groups are saying, that way you get a free history lesson!
My favourite city in Germany. The cathedral (Dom in German) is incredibly large and worth a visit. There are a few nice and clean shopping streets as well as bakeries on every street corner. Germans are well-known for their love of food and pastry. And I must say, there’s nothing like German food! Speaking of which, you can visit the chocolate museum, it’s great or so I hear. Have to go there myself one of these days…for some reason I keep postponing it!
An amazing village. It has a castle on top of a mountain, a river, picturesque streets and cafés and gorgeous views everywhere! One thing though, when I was there with my family for a day, we noticed that almost all waiters and waitresses were very grumpy! No idea why, we were friendly and the weather was nice!
A city I have visited numerous times, but I never get bored of St. James’ Park in front of Buckingham Palace and a restaurant called Le Pain Quotidien near the London Eye. It has organic, healthy and scrumptious food! London is a place you should visit in November or December when the Christmas lights are on! It’s extra lovely around those days!
