    Is the fast-paced life on mega-cities starting to grate on your nerves? The best remedy is a trip to urban spaces where people don’t mind slowing down for a bit, where you can still stop and smell the flowers, and the sky is visible without being obstructed by hundred story tall sky scrapers. Despite having its fair share of modern cities, old Europe retains much of its classic charm, especially if you spend some time in small towns that combine the peaceful atmosphere of the countryside with all the cultural and historical attractions that you would find in larger cities. Wind down and enjoy life’s small pleasures in some of the best small towns in Europe.

    Islands like Bali, the Maldives, Fiji and other tropical wonders get all the attention on the travel scene, and even a few islands with temperate climate are quite popular with mainstream travelers as long as they are famous. But what about the scores of islands that are located in parts of the world that are slightly off the beaten path? The Baltic Sea is bordered by countries with huge touristic potential, like Denmark, Finland, Sweden or Germany, and sticking to dry land will reward you with amazing sights, but there is a bunch of islands scattered over the pond that are just as worthy of interest. If you want an island holiday that goes beyond the conventional, here are some remote Baltic islands you’ve (probably) never heard of.

  • The creepiest ghost towns in Europe

    Most of the world’s famous ghost towns are what’s left of old, short-lived mining towns in the US and Canada which were abandoned once there was little ore left to find. But the towns you see in old Western movies are not the only kind of ghost towns around. Old Europe also has several sad tales of abandoned towns and villages that now lie empty but still intact. These ghost towns have been abandoned for various reasons, some tragic and some uninteresting, but the towns themselves are all worth a visit. Feel the past creep up behind your back while you visit some of the creepiest ghost towns in Europe.

  • Tips for roadtrips in Europe

    Many people who travel to Europe for the first time are amazed at how well train transport and bus transport in some countries work, and how easy a good public transport network makes it to take a tour of the continent. But trains and buses are only one side of the story, and there’s another way to go about vising Europe, or parts of it. I’m talking about roadtrips, of course, those long and sometimes tiring trips that are considered more than anything a rite of passage and a way to enjoy to the fullest the company of your friends (or yourself) and of seeing distant places at your own pace, without hurry or worries. If you love driving, then take a chance and discover the old continent though the windshield – and here are some tips for roadtrips in Europe that might help you.

Nowadays, you can find traditional Hungarian restaurants and bakeries in most big cities, so here’s a short guide to Hungarian cuisine so that you’ll know what to order if you decide to try it out.
