Hello people! My name is Marcela and I am new to this forum.
I am trying to plan a trip to Europe between June 13 and July 15,the thing is I do not know much about cities to visit,I've been
researching a lot and it is kind of overwhelming. I would like to see as much as possible, even if that means going to fewer countries/cities, that is fine with me. At first I was thinking to go to the UK (most of it) and if I had time, I would like to visit Holland,Prague,Poland, Barcelona,or Berlin,but I keep reading that the UK is expensive. My budget is around 3,000-4,000 dollars,not including airfare from USA to there. What countries/cities would you recommend? How long each? I like nature,museums,historical places,mountains. I am not much of a nightlife person,but I would like to go to one or two places.
Thanks for your help!
East Europe is quite cheap, Poland is a very attractive travel destination. You could go to Krakow (a lot of museums, historical places, fantastic bars, clubs), Zakopane (mountains!), Auschwitz (a historical place connected with Holocaust), Wieliczka (a very unique salt mine) - all these places are not far away from each other
Sounds great what you´re up to!
I would advice you not to spend most of your time in the UK indeed, However I would visit London if I were you. It´s a very impressive city if you ask me!
There is so much to see in Europa, that it´s hard to make decisions where to go, and what to miss....
East Europe is indeed a bit cheaper overall compared to the west. But, I´ve been in both and the west of Europa has definately more charm if you ask me.
You mention you would like to go to Barcelona, and believe me: you have to! In Barcelona you have everything you require: It´s the city of architecture, famous buildings of Antonio Gaudí, lot´s of culture, beautiful Cathedrals, buildings, monuments, museums and much more! It has also got breathtaking mountains and last but not least, Barcelona has got great beaches as well!
I don´t know how long you are travelling through Europe, but I also recommend these cities: Rome, Amsterdam, Paris & Berlin.
Good luck with your trip and if there are any questions left, don´t hestitate to ask me!
