Europe travel guide

Most visited European cities:

London - capital of United Kingdom. Keeps top spot in many destination guides. Few reasons for it - English speaking country; there are many cheap flights to London (but all the other prices can cut you budget significantly); global recession makes it considerably cheaper as before.
Paris - the capital of romance (and France).Few reasons for visiting Paris - a lot of history, culture and arts; to find out what the fuss is about.
Istanbul - the only major city on the two continents. Fascinating melting of Eastern and Western cultures. Istanbul has been named the 2010 European Capital of Culture.
Rome - the eternal city on seven hills with long history (Italy). Few reasons for visiting - Rome is a carnival city all year long; a lot of history and archeology; experience of Vatican city; explore Roman ruins.
Barcelona - Spain's second largest city at the Mediterranean coast. Very vibrant and lively destination. It’s impossible to get bored in Barcelona.
Dublin - chosen as the European Capital of Sport 2010. Splendid Georgian Architecture, not to mention 1000 pubs. See national Irish dance; try local beer (its Guinness).
Moscow - Russian metropolis is Europe’s largest city. Different culture. Big history. Worth to visit. Though you need to apply for visa before.
Prague - one of the cultural centers in central Europe, with many museums, theaters, exhibitions. Named as ‘Golden City’ because of cultural and historical heritage (Czech Republic). Great food & beer.
Amsterdam - Europe’s center of liberal attitudes (Netherlands). Few reasons for visiting - get the feeling of personal freedom; get sense of floating city – canal cruise is must do activity; enjoy feeling oh-so-Dutch cruising Amsterdam by bike.
Vienna - world’s music capital. Great destination for travelers interested in art. In city that lies at the heart of Europe you can encounter all architectural styles of European history.
Madrid - city that never sleeps. Capital of Spain. Art lovers will like this city - Prado is second best to the Louvre. If you are a football fan, don’t miss a Real Madrid F.C football match.
Athens - city worshipped by gods and people. The cradle of western civilizations. Enchanting capital of Greece got makeover for 2004 summer Olympics. Now is even better as it was before.
