5 most underrated capitals in Europe


When the word “Europe” comes to mind, we all think of some popular cities like Paris, London, and Rome but this continent has a lot of hidden gems that are not being seen as much in the shadow of their famous competitors!

In this post, we would get to know 5 cities that you should put on your bucket list.

1-Ankara, Turkey

Ankara is the capital of Turkey. This country gets more than 45 million international visitors every year but most of them only know Istanbul and Antalya. Turkish culture is a beautiful thing to discover and there’s no better city to represent it better than Ankara.

This city is less affected by mass tourism compared to Istanbul and most people don’t even speak English but we all understand body language and may God bless Google Translate!

2-Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Have you read the book “the cellist of Sarajevo” by Steven Galloway? If no, you should drop whatever you’re reading ASAP and start this one. This true story is about a Cellist who plays his Cello every day in the street during a real war!

The whole story happens in Sarajevo and after reading it, I don’t have to encourage you to visit this capital!

3-Valletta, Malta

Valletta is one of those always summer cities! There are beaches near it to enjoy relaxing at, as well as old European buildings. Malta is one of the oldest countries in Europe.

4-Bratislava, Slovakia

Bratislava comes straight out of a Disney animation! The old side’s skyline reminds me of “Cinderella” and “Hotel Transylvania” at the same time.

5-Budapest, Hungary

Budapest is famous for its beautiful architecture. It also has a stunning river called “Danube” which splits the city in half. If you are planning to visit this capital, don’t forget to try their hot Mulled Wine. They are the best in this type of wine.
