The typical visitor to Europe sees cities such as Paris, London, and Vienna, but this continent also offers a wealth of destinations that are much quirkier. From a museum about a non-existent corporation to a hidden underground submarine base, Europe is full of fascinating surprises, but only for those who understand that sometimes, a tourist needs to stray far from the beaten path.
Located on the tip of the Crimean Peninsula, this port city on the Black Sea used to be situated inside the USSR. What makes it truly quirky, however, is a facility that was once one of the region’s most deeply held secrets: a Soviet nuclear submarine base. The underground base is missing all the submarines these days, but because the facility was designed to withstand a direct hit by an atomic bomb, its infrastructure remains intact. The public is now welcome to enter and to explore the tunnels and submarine bays.
We frequently use them as a reference, but ask the common traveller to list you the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and they might do well to tick off three…
How well do you know them? Taj Mahal? Iguazu falls? Pyramid of Giza? Well, you’re right….kind of: these three all appear in separate lists.
In truth, there are several world wonders lists, and some countries even have their own ‘wonders’ list.
To clarify things we’ve decided to make a rundown of the three most important ‘World Wonders’ lists:
The New 7 Wonders, the Ancient World Wonders, and the Seven Wonders of Nature. Be prepared to be blown away!
Spain’s capital is naturally one of the country’s most expensive cities. It doesn’t take a great deal of imagination to expect that you can easily spend a fortune here if you’re not careful. That said, the best things in life are still free, right?
While it’s true that Madrid can’t offer as many free museums as London can, there are still plenty of tasty attractions that can help to spare your pockets….if you know where to look for them.
Euro 2012 is almost upon us! Poland and Ukraine will host one of the most exciting sports events this year between 8th June and 1st July. Major cities such as Warsaw and Kiev are popular tourist destinations, but not so many tourists have wandered the streets of cities like Kharkiv and Lviv. Luckily, this summer we can discover (or rediscover) Poland and Ukraine, with the matches spread over the two countries. To make it a bit easier to find accommodation, we’ve made a selection of great hotels to stay in whilst supporting your team!
Europe might be full of foreigners, small hotel rooms and questionable border security, but one thing it really does have going for it is the depth and breadth of history throughout the continent. Like tropical rainforest is for plant and animal species, Europe is an area of immense cultural richness.
What follows is an introduction to UNESCO-listed attractions in Europe. In this post I’ll concentrate on the most famous ones. However, it’s definitely worth looking beyond the obvious to uncover less well-known destinations.
Let’s move from west to east, so it will feel a bit like we’re travelling forward in time.
It might be down to the company I keep, but too often when I hear someone talking about their recent city trip to Dublin, all I get is a list of anonymous pubs and a catalogue of intoxicated antics. Even beyond this, you don’t need a BA in Travel and Tourism to reel off the names of attractions like Trinity College, Phoenix Park, Temple Bar and Grafton Street. The Celts are fiercely proud of their culture, so I’m convinced that Dublin has more to offer.
I’ve asked Francisco, Account Manager for Spanish destinations, for some insider info on this city. Why should he be an expert? Unlike me, who has never set foot on the Emerald Isle, Francisco lived there for almost two years. No wonder I can’t understand a word he says. Anyway, he’ll guide you through some slightly lesser-known Dublin experiences that will add a great deal of substance to your trip.
A romantic getaway is always nice to refresh your mind and escape from the sometimes boring daily reality. There are plenty of hotels around Europe where you can go with your partner in order to experience some romance and fully enjoy each other. Some hotels took it to the next level and designed a special room setting, or even their entire hotel, in order to attract couples that want to stay indoors and just be together all day long. After thorough research I came up with this list of the “Most Romantic Hotels in Europe”. These hotels are just mind-blowing! As soon as I get the chance, I will visit at least one of them with my partner.
