The weather might be grey in Reykjavik for most of the year but a walk around the city quickly reveals a world of colour – there’s a treasure trove of street art adorning building walls, underpasses, houses, and everything in between.
Is Vilnius worth visiting? It sure is! There are a wide range of things to do in Vilnius for all visitors and it’s definitely a highlight of any trip to the Baltics. Despite being a city with a small population of just half a million, it’s extraordinarily welcoming. It’s the perfect place to get lost for a few days and a popular stop on the Baltic tour route.
Nestled around the Baltic Sea, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia make up Europe’s stunning Baltic region. They’re some of the most beautiful countries in the world and are growing in popularity as tourist destinations each year, drawing more and more people to this northeastern corner of Europe than ever before.
Tucked in the northeast corner of Europe, Tallinn is a true hidden gem. Whether you visit in the summer high season or in the wintry cold, like I did, there are countless cool things to do in Estonia’s capital city. For me, two days was the perfect amount of time to get a good feel of Tallinn, but then I move fast. If you want to see the city at a slower pace, then I recommend at least three days.
Some people believe street art is vandalism. Others think it adds to a city’s unique character. In any case, street art was something I basically ignored in the past but today, thanks to my cousin’s input, I’ve begun to love street art!
I had always wanted to visit Portugal and decided the north was one of the more beautiful areas to visit. I did not want to stay in Porto, though, since cities are not really my thing and I also wanted to visit the surrounding area and widen my horizons.
My aim was to visit San Marino, one of the smallest countries in the world, but since I was staying for the weekend at a nearby town, I also found the time to visit Bologna and the two fascinating medieval villages of San Leo and Dozza, both within easy driving distance from San Marino.
