Must see European towns this winter

Abisko, Sweden

Besides gazing at the Aurora Borealis, you can ski, hike, ice skate, go dog sledding, and explore the national parks. Also, visit the world’s first and most famous ice hotel, Icehotel, in nearby Kiruna.

Prague, Czech Republic

Picture snow-capped spires, cobblestone alleys, and old-fashioned street lamps! Prague is truly a winter fairy tale waiting to be discovered. It is usually tourist-free in the winter. The city’s natural beauty really comes to life under a blanket of snow. Stroll through the streets, see the sights at your own pace and warm up at a local café where more than a dozen types of hot chocolate are served.

Reykjavik, Iceland

Iceland is among Europe’s coldest areas and there are many reasons why its capital is a must-see winter destination. The annual Winter Lights Festival in February is one of the best European celebrations. The city also has an abundance of winter sports, museums, and restaurants making it a happening place. Reykjavik has many outdoor geothermal swimming pools, which are some of just a few in Europe. Imagine relaxing in naturally warm waters while the snow falls around you.

Bled, Slovania

And if you’re looking for adventure – its terrain is ideal for anyone interested in outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing, or ice skating. Also it is home to Bled Castle, a medieval fortress believed to be the oldest castle in Slovenia.

Copenhagen, Denmark

This museum caters to visitors in need of a bit of culture to accompany their daily fix of something chocolatey. It details the history of chocolate without overlooking the importance of tasting. It occupies a historic building on the corner of Sint-Jansplein.

Really a cafe with displays related to chocolate making and consumption, this ‘museum’ serves cups of delicious, thick, pure chocolate. Lining up in temperatures of 35 degrees celsius to drink cups of hot chocolate in an air-conditioned interior may seem odd, but it’s worth it.
