Europe attractions, top destinations selection? In 18th and 19th-century Paris, there were lots of glass-roofed shopping galleries in areas around the Grands Boulevards. These covered passages – essential precursors to the modern-day shopping centre – allowed you to take shortcuts, escape the elements or (ooh la la!) steal a forbidden kiss with your lover in relative privacy. Somewhat less romantically, most passages were also given a salon de decrottage: a room where the dog excrement you’d trodden through was scraped off your shoes. These days, the passages couverts are perfect little hideaways for an afternoon’s retail therapy.
Fanning out right into the boundless blue waters of the Adriatic Sea, the walled city of Dubrovnik is something that can be termed as nothing less than ‘Awe-Inspiring.’ Enjoying the elevated status of UNESCO World Heritage Site, Dubrovnik, by default, becomes an outstanding destination in the uncharted waters of Croatia travel for a casual tourist. For the adrenaline addicts, activities like kayaking, swimming, and a host of other water activities add to the thrill. And for the fans of Game of Thrones, Dubrovnik’s fortifications create some deja vu. A sweeping view of the city can be enjoyed by climbing up Mount Srd, which remains effortlessly accessible via cable car or on foot.
However you choose to see the Netherlands, you’re guaranteed a great time in one of the friendliest and most liberal cultures in Europe. Be sure to plan your travel itinerary with our list of the top-rated tourist attractions in The Netherlands. Canals are as important a part of Amsterdam’s cityscape as they are to the city of Venice, and some of the most enduring memories for any visitor are the time spent exploring the city’s wonderful waterways. While many of Amsterdam’s best tourist attractions can easily be accessed by boat tour or water taxi – including most of the major museums and art galleries – nothing beats strolling along the smaller, quieter streets that line the waterways. Particularly charming is the Jordaan, a neighborhood built in the early 1600s to house workers and immigrants drawn here for the city’s religious tolerance. Along with its small canal-side houses, look for the neighborhood’s many “hofjes,” the quaint inner courtyards hidden behind the buildings.
