Prague, Czech Republic
If only a city could be described as a “fairytale on earth” that would be Prague. The center of the Czech Republic has a special charm and amazing sights, excellent examples of architecture, history, and culture that make it unbeatable. The illuminated square with the Christmas shops at night will probably leave you in awe and excitement!
Compared to the previous cities mentioned, Budapest has a peculiarity: it is a capital divided into two parts, Buda and Pest, each one with distinctive characteristics. In winter, when snowfall is more frequent, the city is dressed in white and looks like it has sprung from a fairytale. History, culture, and impressive architecture all come together and provide a magical essence in the Hungarian capital.
As the Christmas season arrives, the entire city gets filled with colorful lights and decorations from one corner to the other, ready to welcome properly the most beautiful time of the year. You could hear joyous voices from children throughout the historic center who want to go skating, while other people choose to relax in a sauna or spa.
If none of this excites you, you will find many cafes to enjoy your coffee or hot chocolate, while you will be pleased with the wonderful picture that winter Tallinn has to offer.
Of course, there are plenty of amazing winter destinations in Europe, but we have handpicked only the best!
