Frankfurt is Germany’s fourth most-visited city. However, the financial capital rarely appears on travel blogs, and none of my friends or family have ever visited.
With its rattling yellow trams and colourful, cobbled streets, it’s not hard to see why Lisbon has become one of Europe’s prime tourism destinations. Perhaps it’s the sea air, the laidback vibe or the beautiful scenery, but there’s something about the Portuguese capital that simply gets under your skin.
While in recent years, Kalamaja has become the preferred watering hole of locals and visitors alike, there’s still plenty of drinking opportunities to be found in Tallinn Old Town – if you know where to look for them.
Not fully Scandinavian, but not Eastern either, Helsinki has its own unique vibe. And, what’s more, visitors can easily sample the city over the course of a weekend.
