I am a keen traveller; I’ve always loved to travel. It’s amazing how many unique sights there are across the world, isn’t it? No two places are exactly the same – every city, country, and continent has a wide range of wonderfully unique sights and attractions, and I want to see them all.
As someone with a hectic schedule, I often find myself dreaming about travelling here, there and everywhere. I love the concept of simply jetting off to somewhere exotic, however, when I plan a trip, I like to properly plan it, to ensure that I am making the most of my time away.
One thing that I have always wanted to do is explore some of the world’s most famous historical landmarks, and what better place than Europe?! As a continent, Europe is brimming with incredible historical landmarks – there’s plenty to see and do.
Bearing that in mind, below I have shared some of my bucket list dream historical sites across Europe that I one day hope to see and explore.
Berlin is one of those cities that has such a rich and varied history that it’s overflowing with incredible sights and attractions. It’s somewhere that I could probably spend two weeks exploring and it still would not be enough.
A sight that I have always wanted to see is, of course, the Berlin wall, one of the world’s most famous sights. I would also love to explore the Reichstag Building, Brandenburg Gate, and the Victory Column. You can find out more about Berlin’s historical places with eDreams – there are so many different things to see and do, you’ll be totally spoilt for choice.
Venice, the most famous floating city in the world, has always been somewhere I have dreamed of visiting. It’s just so beautiful; the bridges, the gondolas, the incredible architecture – it’s one of my priority places to visit.
Of course, it’s not just the floating city I want to see, it’s also the incredible historical sights that this Italian city has to offer, from St Marks Basilica and St Marks Square to the Bridge of Sighs and Grand Central, between chowing down on unlimited gelato and hand-stretched pizzas, there’s plenty to see and do here.
Budapest is a city that I have often thought about visiting after a friend of mine had such an amazing city break there. Since then, I have always been extremely interested in jetting off here for a historical break like no other.
What I love about the idea of visiting Budapest is the fact it has so many different sights and attractions to discover and explore. From Buda Castle and Castle Hill to the Hungarian Parliament and Mattias Church, there’s plenty to see and do here.
If you’re someone who has been bitten by the travel bug, Europe is the ideal place to escape to, particularly if you’re a keen history enthusiast.
