The Must-Visit Yet Unpopular Tourist Destinations in Europe
No doubt Europe is a very rich continent with enough tourist destinations to last you a lifetime, most of which are yet to be explored to the fullest. The figures have it that Paris alone received over 89 million tourists in the past one year, reason enough to deviate from these popular destinations and walk the path less explored.
And not just Paris but there are so many destinations that will give you that unique tourist experience that will keep you coming back to explore some more. Here is a guide to the beaten path that is less known in Europe to get you started in a time you will live to remember.
How about you get started with the Hague, strategically located in the Netherlands and which can easily be accessible by train from the Amsterdam Schipol airport? Probably one of the reasons that make the Hague quite popular is the fact that it hosts many international tribunals especially crimes related to genocide.
Lovers of the film the Sound of Music are probably familiar with our second tourist destination, Salzburg, Austria. No doubt this is something worth exploring more so if you watched the Sound of Music Film. The surrounding hills will also take your breath away especially when you set yourself to discover more about the rich cultural heritage of this tourist destination even as you trail the movie scenes and sites.
There is no travel and tour website that should complete its list of Europe tourist destinations without mentioning Gdansk, Poland. Gdansk has a unique history, charm, and beauty that can never be equated to that of any other destination, more so Warsaw and Krakow that most people prefer over Gdansk. While the city is predominantly occupied by the Germans, no doubt there is some Polish Heritage worth your exploration when you take the time to learn more of its history and culture.
Want to see how ancient and modern history combines to form the best memorable experiences, look no further beyond Arles, France. There are enough art collections and antiques worth your exploration and while at it, be sure to dig deeper on the history of world-famous artist Van Gogh. Last but not least is to visit Szeged, Hungary, particularly if you love vibrant nightlife and spending some quality time visiting the zoo. Like with all other tourist destinations, planning early is key to your success to be sure to put everything in order well in advance.
