Here are our top 5 winter travel destination you should by all means visit:
Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is one of the most romantic places in Europe. If you are looking for a perfect getaway place in the winter, for you and your partner, there are only a few places in Europe that can stand toe to toe with Budapest. Even though winter can be tough to endure, due to pretty low temperatures, Budapest is famous for its ornate thermal baths. Trust us, it is an extraordinary experience to be half naked during the winter in the midst of a thermal bath, whilst simultaneously being surrounded by one of the prettiest cities in the whole Europe.
Another highly romantic destination is Prague, the capital of Czech Republic. If you are someone who deeply enjoys spending time by drinking good coffee in beautiful cafes, Prague should be among your number one picks. During the winter, accommodation is even cheaper, and the whole city isn’t crowded with tourist. There are a lot of museums to visit, concerts to listen to, you can even go ice skating. All in all, Prague is one of the Eastern Europe’s finest gems.
The world knows about Switzerland’s incredible economy, but not everyone is familiar with how astonishingly beautiful this country actually is. Interlaken is a perfect destination for everyone who enjoys sports in general, and winter sports in particular. Interlaken is the European capital of sports. Skiing, snowboarding, bungee jumping, etc. If you want to combine perfect scenery with your favorite form of recreation, get ready for Interlaken.
Austria is a country full of exciting places to visit during whichever season. Worldly renowned for its strong cultural impact, primarily in the realm of arts, Austria will leave you speechless wherever you decide to look. However, Salzburg is a city with a special kind of flair. One of the oldest preserved fortresses in Europe is located just above the city, it’s the birthplace of the amazing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, food is incredibly reasonably priced, as is everything else. During the winter the whole place is like a baroque fairytale, but the harsh winter will make it a bit tough to enjoy.
Most of us, at a certain point in time, were struck by the stupendous magnificence of nature. Croatia is a country that offers plenty of those transcendental experiences, and Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of the most prominent examples of nature’s astounding power to impress. In 1979 it became enlisted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Imagine 16 interconnected lakes, more than 90 waterfalls, caves, caverns and forests during wintertime. Trust us, you cannot even begin to imagine their beauty.
If you are searching for a ski chalet holiday, one of the best choices you can make is to visit Val d’Isere located in the French Alps. Professional staff, outstanding food, breath-taking scenery, and above all, amazing ski pistes and runs.
