But could you believe that while Paris and Italy and England are extremely popular locations, they definitely aren’t the best ones in Europe to visit? In fact, South East Europe offers some of the wildest, most picturesque places on the continent.
Now, southeast Europe is quite a big chunk of countries to visit in a single trip. We thought, why not choose our favorite locations for you? To be frank, we certainly believe that those will be awesome as standalone trips too. So, without further ramblings, let’s run through them!
Spend a day or two in Croatia!
One of the most beautiful countries in Europe is certainly Croatia. With all the castles and old architecture, no wonder it was one of the main locations the Game of Thrones crew chose to shoot at.
But the beauty of its cities doesn’t end just there. Rent a yacht in Croatia with 12knots.com and you’ll be sure to experience one of the most amazing times of your life. The Adriatic sea is certainly one of the most beautiful in Europe, only maybe rivaled by the Black Sea.
Make time to roam around the Albanian Riviera.
We briefly mentioned the French Riviera in the intro, but we truly believe there are other, just as good, rivieras in Europe.
The Albanian Riviera is certainly in the top five most beautiful places in Europe and the town of Himara is surely the top destination if you’re looking to have an awesome time during your trip.
Plan a trip across the mountains of Bulgaria.
Certainly, our favorite choice, a summer trip across the Bulgarian mountains should be on the list of every person that loves traveling.
Grab a rental car and roam across the Rila and Rhodope mountains. Get yourself across Old Mountain and witness some of the most beautiful sights in the world, like the Seven Rila lakes hidden high in the mountains.
A bonus is that you’ll get to go through some isolated villages with no more than ten people living in them, which gives you a perfect opportunity to see how people lived sixty years ago.
And why don’t you enjoy a summer trips across the Crete island?
After spending some days in Bulgaria, it’s a great idea and opportunity to hop over to the beautiful Grece and visit the Crete island.
Explore the biggest island in Grece. It offers everything from small villages to metropolitan cities bustling with life, shops, and beaches — there’s pretty much something for everyone’s cup of tea.
With so much to do and see in Europe, it’s definitely worth exploring the Southeast part of the old continent. With some of the most picturesque places, the scenery and nature is nothing like you can see anywhere else. We’d love to hear what’s your favorite place to visit in Europe in the comments below.
