Budapest

Budapest is a great city to visit all-year-round. The months of October and April are best, as the weather is milder in spring and fall.

One of the most amazing things about Budapest is the Danube River running through the city center. It separates the city between Buda and Pest. It is also the home of the famous Buda Castle. This beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site lights up beautifully at night and offers amazing views from atop.

Another city attraction is the Thermal Baths. Although is it not a place often frequented by locals, it carries a large historical significance. The concept of thermal baths was first brought in by the Romans over a thousand years ago. To this day, the thermal baths remain for public use, and some of them are also the oldest buildings in the city.

Food is also amazing in Budapest. Local soups and Beef Goulash are part of the local cuisine

 

London

London is known for its rich history and iconic landmarks. Some of the best buildings to visit are Westminster Abbey, House of Parliament and Big Ben. These landmarks not only offer the history behind the city but also gives the city its charm.

London’s modern architecture is something to take note of as well. You have the Shard and the Gherkin. You might not recognize their names, but they have now become iconic buildings.

If you’ve got time for architecture, then you definitely should take a walk down the Thames River as well. It’s a beautiful walk filled with many historical landmarks to see as well. 

As much as how London is an urbanized city. It also has some of the most beautiful parks in the world. Among them are Hyde Park and St James Park. These parks are not only beautiful but also located near Buckingham Palace. The parks are managed by the Royal Parks Organization, and some of them have been around since the 14th Century. 

London has a lot to offer with sightseeing, but they also boast a ton of museums. And a lot of them are free. These include the National Gallery, Tate Modern, and National History Museum.

Besides a long list of Museums to Visit, London also has tons of outdoor/street markets to visit. From a huge selection of fresh produce, food, fashion, and handcrafted goods, there are many things to enjoy at each market. Some of the most popular markets include Camden Market, Greenwich Market, and Borough Market.

Barcelona

Barcelona is not your typical city. It has some of the best nightlife in Europe to offer. The top clubs to go to are Opium, Shoko, Pacha, and Catwalk. These clubs will keep you up and dancing all night long.

Barcelona is a city that is perfect for bicycles. Bike tours are amazing and abundant. If you’re short on time, why not take a bike tour around the city?

As you travel around the city you will discover an extremely beautiful park called Parc de la Ciutadella. There is a water fountain in this park that looks like something out of a fairytale. The history of the park space is tied to the history of Barcelona’s political struggle. Through wars and power struggles, the park space has had its structures torn down many times. Until over 150 years ago when the government decided to start adding structures to it.

It is a big space containing the City Zoo and the Museum of Natural Sciences of Barcelona.

Another great factor about the city is that its located near the sea. Barcelona has some of the most amazing and well-maintained beaches in the world. The weather is great all year round in Barcelona, so even November and December are great times to go to the beach.

Barcelona may seem to be like any other historical city, but it is home to one of the famous architects that ever lived, Antoni Gaudi. His most famous works are the Sagrada Familia and Park Guell. The Sagrada Familia is an iconic structure of Barcelona, which continues its construction to this day. Antoni Gaudi died before the structure could be finished. His plans for the church were found and saved. As such, it has been a project that the city continues to try to finish to this day.
