Barcelona

From the laidback ambiance to the colourful architecture, Barcelona is another destination that we highly recommend. Food is definitely one of the highlights of your trip, especially authentic tapas. Do not be surprised to see that most of the establishments are closed at noon. It is time for their traditional siesta. The Sagrada Familia Church is one of the architectural marvels that is not to be missed, even if you are not the religious type. Museu Picasso is also a good place to explore for those who have penchant for the art. Park Güell, Zoo Barcelona, and the Gothic Quarter should also be amongst your places to visit.

Moscow

Russia may not always be a country that is frequently mentioned when it comes to winter breaks, but it can actually be promising, especially the city of Moscow. Among other attractions, one that should not be missed would be the Kremlin, which is the depiction of the city’s political power. If you love to shop, TSUM and GUM are two malls that should be part of your itinerary. To discover more about art, architecture, history, and culture, visit St. Basil’s Cathedral, Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, and Bolshoi Theatre, among others.

With baroque buildings and Gothic churches, the capital of Czech Republic will make the perfect winter escape for anyone who loves architecture. The Astronomical Clock is one of the main attractions, which also hosts an animated show. The Prague Castle, which was built in the 9th century, is another landmark that will be worth seeing. Of course, you should visit one of their beer gardens. It is touted as one of the cheapest places to enjoy good beer.

Parks, fragrances, flowers, mountains, lakes, palaces, museums, churches, beautiful villas – these are just some of the things that make Florence an ideal choice for a winter break. The Duomo, known as the fourth largest cathedral in the world, is one sight that you should see. You should also climb on the top of Piazzale Michelangelo, where you will be rewarded with a splendid view. Going on a wine tour is also a good idea.

Berlin

Germany’s capital is teeming in terms of exciting things to do and unique sights, making it a part of the bucket list of many people. The Museum Island, home to five illustrious museums, will definitely be worth your time. For those who are traveling with children or those who love animals, Berlin Zoo is a must-see.
