Europe Travel Tips – Where To Go and What To Do

Planning to travel to Europe soon? You will love European countries for their amazing food, great fun and some of the world’s most incredible sights and cities. However, if you still don’t know what to do there, here are some of the great places you can visit and what you can do there:

See Fado music in Lisbon, Portugal

Fado is one of the most beautiful and authentic sounds you’ll hear when you visit Lisbon. It has been characterized as mournful tunes and lyrics that combine with ‘saudade’, which gives a feeling of irreparable and permanent loss. While it may sound depressing, but it is amazingly beautiful and soulful that makes it very popular in Portugal. In fact, Fado has been tantamount with Portugal since the early 1800s and up until now. Fado players (Fadistas) are normally seen playing in restaurants in Lisbon.

Visit the Acropolis of Athens, Greece

Visiting the temple of Acropolis will take you back in time as the citadel dates back to 447 BC. The temple comes with a couple of architecturally and historically important structures such as the Parthenon that goes back to the 5th century BC. The Pantheon and other main structures on the Acropolis are known for its advanced creation. And while architects have been studying the building for centuries, they are still unsure how they did it back in the day.

Learn the Russian drinking culture

A stop at St. Petersburg, Russia will give you a chance to learn the tradition of making vodka, which started 500 years ago. The city is the best place to learn this age-old craft. It is also the place to learn how the vodka distillation helped shaped the history of the country. Learn more about it when you visit the Museum of Russian Vodka, then try a couple of samples at the local aquae vitae.
