The Christmas celebrations have come to an end but winter has only just begun. Contrary to what many believe, this time of the year is one of the most appropriate for going on different trips around Europe. There are a number of destinations that shine in a special way during the winter months, especially for their culture, events, recreational offers and their natural environment. In this article, we will review some of the best European destinations to visit during winter:
The capital of Estonia is still a great unknown destination to most travellers. However, it is an excellent and surprising option for all those who like to discover small architectural treasures while taking a stroll through its streets. Tallinn's buildings are mostly low rise structures and there are numerous parks that don't just appear in the main streets; all covered by an elegant white blanket of snow.
Another winter destination par excellence in Europe. Tromso is the world's most northerly city, which is why it is considered the gateway to the Arctic. Exploring the fishing port of the Tromsoya Island or enjoying the panoramic view of the city from the Floya hill are some of the most recommended things to do in this city.
One of the greatest European capitals and, in the opinion of many, the most precious jewel of the Danube. Exaggerated or not, both statements hint at how much awaits us in Budapest. The view of its Parliament in front of the Danube is one of the best loved pictures of the city as well as the views of Pest from the Buda Castle .... The Hungarian capital is also an ever changing destination, given that the numerous streets that form its immense urban centre hide all kinds of experiences to discover without hurry
Slovenia begins to take centre stage among travel recommendations throughout the year but Máribor gets a special interest during the winter. The social setting is more than guaranteed, due largely to its status as the university city of Maribor. Little by little, the squares that are full of terraces are becoming the most representative symbols of the city.
We say goodbye with one of those classic destinations that is always recommendable to visit this winter. Bruges has one of the most extensive historical centres and is of greater artistic value in all of Europe. The combination of these monuments with the canals that cross the city is simply impressive.
