As the title of this post suggests, I haven’t been to any of these places. They are small towns hidden somewhere in Europe. Attracting thousands, if not millions. of tourists every year, they are the perfect little secret of the country they are located in. I sincerely hope to have the opportunity to visit at least one of them one day, or if I am lucky enough, all five. To those of you who had the chance to see them, I am jealous! But, I will be excited to read your stories, so please leave links below.
1. Hallstatt, Austria
This is a good destination both in the summer and in the winter. I love the reflection of the buildings in the seemingly cold waters. The stillness of the lake is enchanting and there is no doubt, that this is the perfect place for relaxation.
2. Colmar, France
Once a German territory, this French city is so picturesque. The capital of Alsatian wine, is offering delicious wine and breathtaking views. The Old Town is beautiful and filled with history.
3. Popeye Village, Malta
Okay, this is not a town, it is a village, but it sure takes a deserved place in this list. The colours of the water and the houses are so bright, that you may feel like a cartoon in an animation movie. And who knows, you might run into Popeye, somewhere in the village.
4. Giethoorn, The Netherlands
Just looking at the pictures of this lovely town, you may feel dazzled. Like taken out from a fairytale, Giethoorn is without a doubt a fascinating place. It is the Venice of the north and I would be more than pleased to visit it.
5. Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic
And last, but not least, the little gem called Cesky Krumlov. The town is looking lovely and welcoming. It is a part of the bucketlists of many fellow travellers and is taking high places in many classifications.
