''Cool'' European Cities.

Anyway, me and my friend, sick of the British Isles at the moment, looking to go somewhere in europe.

 

Somewhere that doesn't particularly involve mass tourism, Spain, Algarve etc. Nowhere tacky/overdone.

 

I'm already going to Paris this year, so France is a no no.

 

Somewhere safe ish, so no whacky eastern block place.

 

Somewhere middle price range. Nice weather isn't a requirement.

 

Any ideas? I was thinking Berlin, but i haven't really got a clue. Any suggestions would be nice  O0

I recommend....

 

Rome in Italy, its splendour and beauty are breathtaking.

 

Oslo in Norway for a cool night out and cruises in the fjords.

 

Budapest in Hungary for its status as the Paris of the east.

 

Barcelona for being the best city in europe and having a beach.

 

Hamburg for the 'reeperbahn', no idea how you spell it.

 

Krakow in Poland for the craic and the vodka.

 

We live on the best continent on the planet.

Yay \o/ my mate showed me some photos and it looks like a really great place.

Really not keen on Spain like.

 

Anyone been to Berlin?

 

We're not the type to be wanting to spend time on beaches.

 

Been to Berlin twice and going again in April. Its very spaced out as a city, the east is surprisingly full of lush bars and places to eat.

 

The middle of Berlin is very modern as it all needed to be rebuilt after the war.

 

Good place to visit.

What about Vienna?

 

or Bratislava?

 

 

 

Bratislava interesting, but is it like a 24 hour never sleeps kinda place, or lively for a little while before everyone nicks off to kip at 9.

 

 

 

Don't ask me Testa, I'm just googling European capitals in the vein hope I come up with something moderately useful for you! :lol:

Haha thought you were speaking from experience.

 

Fancied Reykjavik, but know 0 about it, and would probably be really rather pricey.

Bilbao is a very good shout - is that where the Guggenheim is? Couple of mates spent the past year travelling around Spain (that's proper Spain, Testa - not the binge-drinking-Anglicised-nightmare-on-sea version you dread so much!) and they said it was fantastic.

 

Lisbon's a cracking little place as well - excellent nightlife down by the Marina area, but a beautiful and safe city to wonder around as well. Another plus, the Portuguese people are very friendly, and speak English (which is obviously the way it should be!)
