Budapest has plenty of World Heritage Sites to have landmarks like Buda Castle Quarter, Banks of the Danube, Heroes’ Square, Andrássy Avenue, and the Millennium Underground Railway in its bucket. The stoned streets of the city are also fine pieces of architecture.
Often coined as a romantic city with Venice, Rome is perfect for couples. Not only is it the capital city of Italy but also it’s capital of the Lazio Region. The home to one of the world’s wonders, Colosseum, Rome, has a few more places like St. Peter’s Basilica, Trevi Fountain and Piazza Navona to stun you completely. Rome is a mixed city with history, culture, outdoors, museums, markets, and child-friendly activities to attract tourists worldwide. Strike on the streets rather than going to a restaurant to eat the best.
Don’t get too surprised if you sway by seeing the magical capital city of Sweden, Stockholm. The town is a collection of 14 islands conceived of old mansions, museums, shops, and imperial palaces. Stockholm is sassy in summer, offering you to dip yourself in its tranquil sea beaches or have sunbathed naked. While in winter, you can save yourself from the cold by having a sauna or playing in its game bars. The restaurant and coffee places are to die for, and its food is just ravishing.Plus, you can always bike or drive to its impeccable boroughs in the daytime.
The city of lights! Hauling up your car roof rack, you can meander the cityscapes, and stop by an elegant hotel to book a stay. Paris is a place that won’t disappoint you at any point in time. While you can see the dangling lights of the Eiffel Tower holding your partner’s hand, the city gets ready to offer you the best cuisines and impressive café lattes. Shopping the world’s finest fashion, sipping the greatest French wines, and watching a classic cabaret show are wonderful things you can do while being in Paris.
Split, Croatia, Greece
Nestled on the lagoons of the Adriatic Sea, Split is an equally sophisticated city like Dubrovnik. The second-largest in Croatia, and the largest in the Dalmatian Region, Split is more of a historical and cultural retreat. The Diocletian’s Palace, Saint Domnius Cathedral, Mestrovic Gallery, and Bacvice Beach are four must-have things to have on your Split’s travel itinerary. The Roman emperor, Diocletian’s Palace, dates back to 1,700 years and is placed on UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites list in Europe.

The collection follows Gaudi’s other designed monuments, viz. Park Güell, Casa Milà, and Casa Batlló. Apart from that, La Rambla, Mercado de La Boqueria, Montjuïc & Picasso Museum collectively make Barcelona worth visiting.

The Brandenburg Gate, The Reichstag Building, The Berlin Wall Memorial, The Museum Island, and The Berlin Cathedral are sure sites to have on your to-do list.
