The capital city of the Czech Republic, Prague, has been titled with different names such as the city of spires and the crown of the world.

I couldnt believe a town as tiny as Kotor could have a beauty so unbelievable it would leave this mesmerizing of an affect on me.
Slightly older than 200 years, this picturesque town is surrounded by pristine blue water on one side and beautiful mountains on the other.
The bay of Kotor is the most splendid place in all of Montenegro, I promise you. The morning rays on the fjords give an angelic touch to the whole city and are a sight you must witness to experience the purest amalgamation of old town look complete with todays amenities.

Nestled in the gorgeous Atlantic ocean, the Azores are made up of nine islands of volcanic origin.Although these charismatic islands are considered as one, each island has a unique touch to its traditions, beauty, cuisines and architecture.
This place is power-packed with adventures like kayaking, hiking trails, rafting, diving, etc. which perfectly balance its natural serenity.
The blue lakes are girdled by green pastures that stretch out to the slopes of calderas and laurel forests. The natural sea habitat is intensely preserved by the residents, and the government aims to produce 75 percent of the islands energy from renewable sources by 2018.

Also known as the city of Waltz.
In spite of being the capital city of Austria, Vienna ranks among the greenest metropolises of the world.
Like every European country, Vienna has a splendid architecture that represents an ensemble of both renaissance and gothic styles that bareroyal glamour.
Ringstrasse, usually called the ring is the heart of Vienna. Its a street that encircles the old city enabling the view of some sumptuous sights such as Hofburg Palace, the Opera House, the Parliament and Saint Stephens Cathedral.
Vienna has attracted several musicians including Beethoven, Mozart and Bach who then composed music that were the products of the inspiration the beauty of this city gave them.

You can imagine the intensity of its beauty when its given a run to cities like Paris and Vienna. Zadar offers a perfect blend of historic old town looks and cosmopolitan cafes that bespeaks urbanity.
Its an eccentric city enjoyed by the tourists and residents for its vibrant flavor. However, the most awe-inspiring thing about Zadar, is the sunset. Believe me, it is indeed the most beautiful sunset in the world.
Sea Organ is one of the best spots to view the mesmerizing transition of the suns hues and listen to the musical waves of the water.
