Elegant and romantic Venetian City (Italy).
Few cities in the world have a charming, romantic beauty like Venice, where it is dubbed the love paradise of Europe. Sitting on a boat passing dense canals, famous bridges bearing the name of the bridge, the Rialto Bridge is a memorable experience that everyone must try once when they arrive in Venice.
Venice is also attractive to tourists because the classic is kept intact for hundreds of years with beautiful old town covered in traditional red bricks of the Mediterranean region, Saint Marco-the most important square, the most famous and the center of Venice. It was called by Napoleon as the “living room of Europe” by the beautiful architectural architecture.
From Venice, it takes just 40 minutes by boat to take a stroll on one of the three unique islands in the north of Burano, Murano, Lido. Murano is famous for its glassmaking. There are many glassware workshops and glassware shops with beautifully exhibited shops. Lido Island offers tranquil moments of relaxation with its stretch of coastline. It is also the host of the annual Venice International Film Festival.
Burano Impressials with its brightly coloured houses and unique, world-famous hand embroidered fabrics. Set foot to the island, any tourists are given the impression of bright colors that do not touch the houses and beautiful small flower pots hanging out on the balcony. The story of the color of the houses was recounted many years ago as fishermen were fishing back in the dawn, they could not distinguish their house because there was a heavy fog covered. So the people must paint their scans with different colors and other neighbor houses in order to avoid confusion.
The green city of Ljubljana and Lake Bled (Slovenia).
Ljubljana is one of the most green and worthwhile cities in Europe. Lonely Planet Magazine commented Ljubljana as “a perfect picture of Switzerland, but his life is much easier to breathe”. From more than 10 years ago, Ljubljana has made a bold policy to ban all cars in the center. The green space that appears anywhere in the city, even in the central area is often crowded.
Ljubljana is an ancient city so simply walk along the riverside in the city, you will easily encounter the Roman cultural ruins on the way. The symbol of Ljubljana is the Dragon Bridge with a beautiful stone statue and a mighty dragon. It is surrounded by an old town with colorful houses with tile walls. Many outdoor cafes are located along the river bank or on stone-paved streets such as returning visitors to the ancient times of the past.
The landscape in Slovenia is described as a surprisingly constant change as you can see the blue sea and right after your back is the majestic mountain, among the forests that are plain… That opposition made Slovenia distinct from the rest of Europe. The highlight of this small country is 20,000 km2 and the population is about 2 million, and the lake is Bled. Bled is like sapphires in the Julian Alps, 55 km from Ljubljana.
The lake freezes completely since 2-3 annually, at which time people and visitors can walk on the lake. For the rest of the months, you won’t have the opportunity to admire all its charming beauty with its blue, emerald waters, swans of swimming and castle balls, and a church that inspires you.
Surrounding the lake of Bled is Green, the road leading up to Bled castle winding by the mountainside, from ancient to the picnic area, walking, favorite cycling of local residents and visitors.
Located amid the lake, the 8th-century Bled cathedral is folded into the list of the world’s most beautiful castles with almost intact architecture. In the castle there are restaurants, two large terraces, many rooms, museums, chapels… The oldest part of the church is the Roman architectural tower, the rest built according to the Renaissance style. The church is built on a floating island between a 15th century lake with a 52m ² high tower which is the highlight of the entire landscape. The floating island is also the destination of not only tourists but the Slovenian people, as they become the backdrop of romantic wedding frames.
The town on Lake Hallstatt (Austria).

Through its historical length with the know-how, Hallstatt maintains a mesmerizing charm with ancient churches, wooden houses, medieval castles with unique architecture that creates a quaint little town. This place is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage site and the most tourist attraction in Austria.
Hallstatt should poetic with pastel-coloured houses reflected in the sparkling lake water, only with the beauty of the house and the street being attractive enough to have a large tourist destination, especially in the warm sunny summer. In winter, the rows are closing earlier however the snowy city landscape is the dream of those who love photography.
On the ridge side of the road, we occasionally come across a small alley with an elevated ladder. Since the houses in Hallstatt are based on high cliffs, we can imagine these alleyways that will lead you to each step to the high floor of the mountainside. These peak positions are a great place for you to watch Hallstatt from above, giving another experience to this beautiful village.
Plitvice National Lake (Croatia).
As a country of natural preference with the coastline almost 1,800 km and countless attractions, Croatia also owns Plitvice, an area of nearly 300 km² of the world’s oldest Balkans, which is regarded as the emerald of the country and is also one of the most victorious Most beautiful natural landscapes in Europe.

Besides, Plitvice Lakes National Park is also a place to retain valuable natural values: Visitors can stroll and listen to the symphony of waterfalls, of sunshine, wind and birds in the beech forests , Pine forest. If possible, we can see somewhere that animals belonging to the bears or wolves, lurching in the cliffs, watching the tourists are never in any season of the year…
