8 undiscovered European destinations that you need to visit!

Europe is home to many of the world’s most iconic cities – from Paris, Rome, and Berlin, to London, Barcelona, and Dublin, the list of must-visit destinations is extensive.

But if you’re looking for a different experience, there are also a whole host of relatively undiscovered European destinations that are certainly worth a visit.

Looking for inspiration? Check out our top eight undiscovered European destinations…

Kotor, Montenegro

Tucked away on a secluded Montenegro bay, Kotor is surrounded by picturesque scenery and stunning views.

Take a walk through a maze of winding, cobbled streets, embark on a tour of the town’s medieval buildings, climb the 1,350 steps to the town’s ancient fortifications, or embrace your adventurous side and paraglide from the cliffs surrounding the town. There really is something here for everyone!

Kutna Hora, Czech Republic

Established as a mining village during Medieval times, Kutna Hora still boast much of its original architecture. Check out the town’s St Barbara’s Cathedral with its Gothic architecture or visit the Sedlec Ossuary, also known as the Bone Church, which has been completely decorated using human bones!

If you’re visiting during the beginning of June, you’ll also get to take part in the Royal Silver Festival, featuring crafts and goods relating to the mining history of the town. Oh, and there’s also fencing!

Bologna, Italy

Although this beautiful city often goes under the radar, it is home to a rich and varied array for cafes, restaurants, bars, and cultural treats!

If you pay this Italian city a visit, we’d highly recommend a visit to the Museum of Modern Art (they’ve got a super-cool bar!) and a day trip to the new gelato museum.

Coimbra, Portugal

Once a capital city, Coimbra is located in close proximity to two of Portugal’s most bustling cities – Lisbon and Porto. Home to one of the oldest academic institutions in Europe, the university town offers plenty for visitors to do and see.

Make sure you take a tour of the town’s ancient cathedrals and experience some traditional Fado music in one of the town’s many bars and café’s. If you’re lucky enough, you might also get to experience one of Coimbra’s famous festivals. Held each year, the festivals include firework displays and street parties. We’ve got it on good authority that Queima das Fitas (the Burning of the Ribbons) in May, and Festas da Rainha Santa are not to be missed!

Kosice, Slovakia

Whilst Slovakia’s capital city, Bratislava is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination, the country’s second city, Kosice, is still relatively unheard of – but we’d highly recommend a visit!

Located on the eastern side of the county, this stunning city boasts an abundance of beautiful gothic architecture, wonderfully preserved buildings, and bucket loads of historic charm.

Top attractions include the Eastern-Slovakia Museum, tucked away within a Neo-Renaissance building in the city’s main square, Villa Cassa, home to Europe’s oldest coat of arms.

Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

As well as being utterly breathtaking, this city is also renowned for being warm and welcoming to all of its guests. Rich in history, and surrounded by the Olympic mountains, the capital city offers the perfect mix of east and west with its many museums, mosques, and cathedrals.

Whilst you’re there, make sure you explore the city’s historical centre (you can sign up to a free Sarajevo Walking Tour for an expert guide). There are also plenty of bars and restaurants to keep you entertained during the evenings.

The Anzore Islands, Portugal

Located just off the court of Portugal, these islands are home to stunning, crystal clear blue and green lakes, lush green prairies, volcanic cone and craters, captivating flowers, and delicious wines. If you’re looking for a tranquil and relaxing break, the islands are definitely worth a visit!

Porto Palermo, Albania

Located just south of Himare, Porto Palermo is a stunning expanse of green rolling hills surrounding a well preserved village. The village is centred around a beautiful 18th century castle, whose picturesque grounds spread along the pristine coastline.

As well as exploring the castle, we’d also recommend taking an early morning hike through the surrounding hills, snorkelling in the clear waters, and taking a trip along the coat to the neighbouring town of Agave.
So that’s all the 8 undiscovered European destinations that you need to visit, but hopefully we can soon add to this number and find u even better holiday destinations.
