The narrow streets in the Old Town of Skopje will enchant you with their architecture and mood, and if you are in need of some refreshments, you can just choose from one of the many cafés and restaurants along these streets.

Visit the castle too, from where the view of the city is magnificent and where you can also grab some souvenirs and gifts.

Did you also know that there are numerous remnants of Turkish times in the Macedonian capital city?

Bergamo, Italy

We would like to highlight two main sights aside from the scenic panorama in the city, the cobblestone streets, the mediaeval quarter, and the delicious food. These are the Piazza Vecchia, the Old Town’s centre, where you will find the most famous sights, and the San Vigilio Castle, that was built in the 13th century. Since the castle is located on the highest hill in the region, the view from there is astonishing.

Podgorica is a great place to start your exploration of Montenegro. After you have visited the Orthodox church in the city, you can start your journey around Podgorica.

Magical Europe suggests checking out the Skodar Lake if you want to dip your feet, though the seaside is not too far away either.

Hop on a train and visit Budva too, as it is often referred to as the touristic capital of Montenegro.

The Brandenburg Gate has become a famous German symbol, and now you have the opportunity to see it for yourself and to let history flow through you, when visiting the remains of the Berlin Wall.

Berlin’s most beautiful square is the Gendarmenmarkt, where you can grab some lunch or coffee on your city walk. Make sure to check out the Unter den Linden boulevard after the sun has set: the street lights and the lime trees will make an unforgettable impression on you.
