1. Paris, France.

Making it to the top on our list is the city of love that needs no introduction, Paris. The most beautiful city in Europe will always be, despite its obviousness. Whether it is doing touristy things in broad daylight, or taking a walk down the street at night with the dazzling view of the Eiffel tower that twinkles at this hour, Paris is sure to take your breath away.

Paris, France is a very entertaining city to visit without breaking the bank.

Like everything else in Paris, the parks are enormous. Due to its location at the foot of the Eiffel tower, the Parc Champ de Mars is most likely one of the most well-known.

2. Budapest, Hungary

Budapest is arguably the most stunning waterfront city in all of Europe. It is the epitome of perfection to cross the chain bridge and see Buda and Pest reflecting one another across the Danube. Make your way to the river when Budapest's lights turn on to admire the beauty of the two cities.

Budapest has an edgy side that is frequently hidden by its gothic appearance. This side can be seen in the clever fonts on storefronts, the unique boutiques, the inventive restaurant sector, and the interesting bar concepts. You'll quickly learn that there is much more to Budapest than its gargoyles and complicated past if you spend a day visiting the Pest side. Its classical exterior conceals a grit and intensity we didn't detect in other European cities.

The summers in Budapest are very pleasant. Even in September and October, the afternoons can get merely sunny. European summers, however, are never particularly scorching and the nights are always nice. You won't mind some midday sun when seeing the city's attractions either because there is less humidity.

In the city, March through May is peak tourist season, followed by the pleasant months of September through November. The perfect weather is from September to November. Additionally, the city is not too crowded at this time. Make sure to start the vacation in the first week of November because, as winter approaches at the end of the month, you might not appreciate the destination as much as you would have. Don’t worry, we did not skim over the places you can easily visit when in Budapest. Castle District is a world heritage site that you should not miss. Many off-the-wall structures, including the Royal Palace, the ancient stronghold, or the renowned National Heritage Gallery, can enable history or culture aficionados to learn more about the past. The Holy Trinity Square, where Matthias Church and Fisherman's Bastion are located, is the district's central location. The Matthias Church is stunning on the inside and out. There is plenty of time to look around and appreciate the creative design that showcases Gothic grandeur.

The Budapest City Hall and Budapest's Jewish Quarter, which includes a Holocaust Memorial on the Danube Shore, are further attractions. This is where the Hungarian Parliament building is located, which has a total of 691 rooms and 20 km of stairs. The right hand of Saint Stephen is preserved in a mummified tomb in St. Stephen's Basilica. On top of it, there are other restaurants and terraced cafes. From the top, you may relax and sip coffee while taking in the entire city. Budapest boasts numerous thermal spas and swimming pools. You can check out the well-known Gellert spa or one of the nearby Lukas Bath and Szechenyi spas. The entrance ticket fee includes access to the nearby pool and sauna.

If you've made the journey to Bergen, chances are you're here to see the fjords. The city lives up to its nickname “the heart of the fjords” by acting as a basecamp for some of the country's most iconic fjord excursions.

In Bergen, Bryggen, a picturesque community of old wooden buildings surrounding the waterfront, should be your first stop. With good reason, Bergen's historic district has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Bergen is surrounded by seven mountains, stunning scenery, and historic buildings.
