1.Valencia (Spain) – the center of modern architecture thanks to architect Santiago Calvatare and other contemporary authors whose works are breathtaking. Located on the seafront – the city of Valencia and the Riviera is quieter than Barcelona. The city has a “movida” (fun, movement around the city), beaches, cathedrals, squares, monuments and architecture. Lonely castles and monasteries are located on the surrounding mountains. Visit Spanish-style Benidorm (mini-Rio): colorful skyscrapers on a sandy mile beach with hundreds of cafes and bars.
2.Porto (Portugal) – gondolas, baroque cathedrals, blue tiles, and the long sandy beaches of the Atlantic. The northern metropolis of Portugal is the essence of Portuguese culture. It is a delightful instrument of fado, green wine and legendary black sausages. Quieter town but still Mediterranean enough. A sunny city with Atlantic freshness. This city is the center of an ancient colonial power-lavish, beautiful and with antique features. The train station is painted with tiles that depict the history of the city. The entire old part of the city is protected by UNESCO cultural heritage.
3.Gdansk (Poland) – Here is a sense of the Hanseatic and handicraft-trading past of the Baltic. Here you feel that the old crafts from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance are still current. Gdansk is the center of the cultural, historical and commercial routes of northern Europe. It used to be called Dancig. It is a city with a double soul (Germanic and Slovenian). The houses are with facades of bright colors, ornate gables and tops stacked side by side. Fountains, squares, the sea, the banks of the Motlava River make the mix of cultures, colors, aromas and flavors indispensable. Nearby is the town of Sopot with long sandy beaches. There is one of the most interesting houses in the world, “Drunk House”, which by its appearance cheers every visitor. The city has many buildings in the traditional German Gothic style of construction and St. Mary’s Cathedral – the largest brick church in the world. It is built in the Baltic Gothic style with a length of 1.05 meters.
4.Lviv (Ukraine) – sometimes referred to as “Third Prague” (The second Prague is Krakow). Due to the role of the leading city in Central European cultural and urban tourism, it should be emphasized in the future. Lviv was part of the powerful Habsburg Empire, which is evident at every turn in architecture. You are located in the middle of a distance between Moscow and Wienn in a city that is a blend of Germanic precision and Slovenian nonchalance. Lviv’s residents say Galicia (region of the city) reconciled the Orthodox east of the continent and Roman Catholic. The dominant religion in the city is Greco-Catholic (Uniate). Unionists are Orthodox who recognize the pope as a religious leader. They are baptized with three fingers (first to the left). They are allowed to bring elements of both branches of Christianity into the church. This results in a fascinating blend of Baroque statues and Byzantine murals and icons, which is a compound that characterizes the entire city. Since 1998, the historic city center has been on UNESCO’s list of cultural heritage sites. At the center is a large number of cultural monuments dating from the 16th to the 17th centuries. Behind the Opera is the Vernissage, where you can find a variety of handmade souvenirs and items (ceramics, wood, leather, painted glass) such as bells and authentic beer mugs.
5.Bruges (Belgium) -grad was a center of European banking and commerce at the time of the Hanseatic Trade Empire. Writer Jospeh Conrad is said in his book Heart of Darkness to refer to the city of Bruges when he wrote “a city that looks like a coffin.” Here you will experience the tranquility of the canals and the breezy waters, see red brick houses. Bruges is also said to be the most beautiful city in the state of Belgium. Best chocolate, best beer, solid wine, best comics and humor, best fries. Asterix, Obelix, Gaston, Talic Tom, Tin Tin. The most famous building is the medieval Church of the Holy Virgin with a height of 122 meters. It houses the “Madonna and Child” the famous statue of Michelangelo.
6.Copenhagen (Denmark) -the symbols of the city that every visitor should see are the Tivoli Garden, the statue of the Little Mermaid, the Carslberg Glyptotheque, the Gefion Fountain, the National Museum and the Christiansborg Palace. Nyhavn or New Port is a place that can serve as a starting point for further sightseeing. There are cafes, bars and red bricks (which served as basic material to keep moisture out of the plastering of the facade). There are royal palaces, seafront, fish restaurants and perfect Danish courtesy. The most beautiful city of Scandinavia and the center of descendants of proud Viking opiates. Disobedient young Vikings live in the city of Christiania today, where the Formula One is a unique commune. You can go on a day trip to the Swedish city of Malmö which is connected by a bridge and the suburban railway to Copenhagen.
7.Colmar (France) – a smaller version of the Statue of Liberty at the entrance to Colmar because this is the home town of Frederic Barthodlia the sculptor who made the statue donated by France to America in 1886. Colmar is a German city in France which means that it belongs to both countries and does not belong to either them. Alsace and Lorraine of the two ethnically German provinces of France (where Colmar belongs) is an ideal and idealized image of Europe. There are precision Frenchmen in houses with slats in small squares and narrow streets and cheerful Germans who make excellent wine and cultivate vines. Colmar is a romantic blend of cultures on the Alsatian Wine Route, located in the east of France. It has many flowers and bridges and is a mixture of Mediterranean French influence and German concreteness. Colmar is called Little Venice (la Petite Venise) because of its beautiful squares, numerous bridges and water channels.
8.Ravenna (Italy) – Oscar Wilde was awarded the poem “Ravenna” as a high school student. Then he regularly mentioned this city in his stories. If you love Byzantium then this city is great to visit. What the world looked like at a time when classical Rome gave way to the Middle Ages, marble gave way to bricks, polytheism replaced Christianity, Romans were replaced by Germans – you can still see it in Ravenna. For a long period of 4 and 10 centuries BC, the world looked like a flat city. Before the magnificent cathedrals began to be built. Ravenna is located in the plain of Romagna. The monuments fell several meters deep into the ground due to the application of the sea. This is a city of mosaics, Aryan sects, red bricks, round and slender towers. Here, the state of Italy is something that is the legacy of our entire civilization. There are as many as 8 UNESCO-listed monuments in the plain: the Neon Baptistery, the Mausoleum of Gala Placidia, the Aryan Baptistery, the Archbishop’s Chapel, the Basilica of Sant’Apollinare Nuovo, Theodoric’s Mausoleum, the Basilica of Saint Vitale and the Basilica of Sant’Apollinare in Classa.
9.Riga (Letonia) – The biggest number of sights is in the old part of town called Vecriga (Old Riga). It is a perfectly Protestant tidy, Orthodox warm, Slovenian relaxed and Scandinavian smiling city. It is located on the bank of the great Dvina River, which flows into the Baltic Sea. Riga is the center of a great-style world heritage site called Secession or Jugendstil. Many call this style Europe’s last great style. It originated when the city was the most powerful trading port of the Russian Empire when traders wanted to show their economic strength by building large palaces and houses. Small squares and restaurants, streets and buildings, a touch of the Middle Ages, booths of amber that collects on the shores of the Baltic, friendly hosts and a relaxed atmosphere and a day that lasts much longer than in the south – add magic to the city of Riga.
10. Beirut (Lebanon) – The oldest settlements in the world, Baalbek and Biblos are located near the city. These are now archaeological sites. 1991 After years of unpleasant news, Beirut ceased war. The city began to rebuild in a new and glamorous outfit. Once upon a time, famous actors were vacationing in Beirut, choosing Miss Europe and the world. That trend continued today. Instead of the old colonial seaside hotels where the sun sets at face-to-face at the end of the day (looking west when looking out to sea) there are now large skyscrapers and buildings. Ramlat-al-Baida’s central city beach is a kind of mini-Copacabanana. Mildly French, it will take you to a time of colonialism that Christians (who are a slight majority) remember with sowing.
