5 essential cities in Europe

If we have something in Europe, there are cities with a lot to offer. You only need to start looking at a map to realize that each and every one of the countries that make it have at least one city that would leave us more than impressed, both for its historical heritage and its culture and of course, for its inhabitants. While we could name as many as there are, today we make a selection of 5 essential cities in Europe

1- Budapest

Budapest, one of the cities considered most beautiful in the world and one of the most desired by anyone who likes to travel.

We recommend an average of 3 or 4 days to get to know Budapest a minimum and reach the most touristic places such as Váci Utca street, St. Stephen’s Basilica, the Parliament, the Central Market, The House of Terror, stroll through the Danube River , the Andrássy Street, the Liberty Bridge, the Gellért Spa, the Danube Shoes monument that reminds us of the victims of the Jewish Holocaust, the impressive Chain Bridge, the Fishermen’s Bastion in Buda, from where We will have incredible views of Pest, the Jewish Quarter with its Great Synagogue, enjoy a good coffee at the New York Café, the Buda Hill or the famous Heroes’ Square and the Városliget Park if you are looking to enjoy one of the lungs of the city.

2- Porto

Porto is one of the many “forgotten” cities in Europe. Maybe it’s because of being in the shadow of the well-known Lisbon, but do not kid yourself. Porto is one of those cities that will not disappoint you. Fados at sunset, Frances has on a terrace, streets with a decadent air or balconies full of clothes will come to meet you to show your best face.

We recommend that you dedicate about 2 or 3 days to visit the city, and if you can add one more day, a very interesting visit can be Guimaraes.

A route similar to this one can be very interesting:
Day 1: OPORTO (Aliados Avenue, Torre dos Clérigos, Llello bookstore, Luís I Bridge, Ribeira do Douro)
Day 2: OPORTO (Sao Bento Station) – GUIMARAES (Castillo, Monte de Penha) – OPORTO
Day 3: OPORTO (Church of San Francisco, Ribera del Duero, Vila Nova de Gaia)

There are many things to do in Madrid. Stroll along the Gran Vía, enjoy a visit to one of its wonderful museums, relax in the Retiro, visit places of interest such as the Plaza Mayor, the Puerta de Alcalá or the Royal Palace and of course, go in search of its excellent cuisine , are just some of the most essential places to visit in Madrid .

4- Prague

Prague is one of the most desired cities by any traveller. Although we always recommend knowing part of Prague, the Czech Republic, since it is an incredible country, we have to recognize that this city, especially, is the jewel in the crown.
