Here are some of the most essential places you should visit when Interrailing Europe...


1. Ljubljana, Slovenia


Ljubljana, have you heard of this city? This is one of the lesser-known places in Europe, but also a real hidden gem and somewhere you should see.

Not many flights stop in the capital of Slovenia, but it’s easy to go there by train.

Ljubjana has charm and is a beautiful place to see. Recommended things to do including stopping to have lunch near the Ljubljanica river or going for a bike ride in the Tivoli Park. It’s a very authentic destination.


2. Lake Bled, Slovenia

Lake Bled

One hour by train from Ljubjana is Lake Bled. It’s a fantastic lake where you can swim, walk and arrive by boat to the island(yes, and island) that it’s inside the lake. The views are breathtaking and for the most adventurous ones you can find lots of roads to walk and walk (and very special caves too!).


3. Prague, Czech Republic

Everybody who vists Prague says it is beautiful no matter if it is summer, winter, spring or autumn. But just to be sure, it’s better to find out for yourself.

This city is one of the best value destinations in Europe with prices for accommodation, eating out and beer a fraction of the price of places like London, Paris and Madrid.

If you stay centrally most of the main attractions in Prague can be seen on foot, another great way to save money. Be sure to learn some Czech travel phrases to impress the friendly local people.


4. Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam is one of the most cities in Europe, famous for its canals and different from most other places in the world.

The history of the city is amazing, there is also art, cafes, shops, museums and so much to do in Amsterdam.

My top tip is to sleep in a boat hotel on the river and then have breakfast watching the sun coming up. It is easy to see why this city is one of the most popular places to work in Europe as most people who visit would be happy to stay.


5. Bergamo, Italy


A few kilometers from Milan there is a Bergamo - a fantastic old city from the medieval age which is easily one of the top places to see in Italy.

Here you can spend a morning visiting the different churches and cathedrals that are placed there from years ago and you can eat fantastic (and REAL) Italian cuisine.

From a Capuccino and sweets (that are amazing) from Pizzetas and delicious pastas with all kind of sauces. You will feel you are in the medieval age.
