Forget Paris and Rome next year. Take the road less travelled, but infinitely more popular – with our top 5 European destinations for 2020
5. Riga, Latvia
Latvia lies on the Baltic Sea between Lithuania and Estonia. Latvia’s capital, Riga, has had 800-years of turbulent history, with everyone from German knights to Soviet commissars making their mark. And Riga’s astounding skyline certainly tells that story, with timeless Gothic spires in the Old Town merging with breathtaking Art Nouveau facades on the grand boulevards.
4. Hvar Island, Croatia
Hvar is known as one of the most beautiful islands in Europe. Enjoyed by royalty and the rich and famous alike, the island offers stunning landscapes, crystal waters and significant cultural heritage. You can visit local treasures like the fortress of Hvar, the Franciscan monastery, or hike the lavender fields in the village of Brusje.
3. Colmar, France
Paris might be the city of love, but Colmar is the most charming and magical. Colmar features an amazing Toy museum, which showcases toys from the 19th Century to present day, the Musée Bartholdi, which is dedicated to French sculptor Auguste Bartholdi (best known for the Statue of Liberty), and the Musée Unterlinden, which is one of the most visited museums outside Paris.
2. Bilbao, Spain
Bilbao is ever-changing and difficult to capture in words. With stunning architecture, a venerable dining scene, stunning landscapes and the Basque coast just 30-minutes away. Stroll the streets and alleys of the ‘Casco Viejo’, Bilbao’s historic centre, or explore amazing museums like the Guggenheim or the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum.
1. Wroclaw, Poland
