Planning your Interrail trip and thinking about heading somewhere a little bit different? Why not consider adding Bosnia-Herzegovina to your itinerary. Situated in southeastern Europe, Bosnia-Herzegovina is home to some of nature’s most beautiful creations, including Kravice Waterfalls (a natural amphitheatre, the waterfalls cascade 30-metres down from the stunning forest above into a turquoise lake),…

Bratislava – a mini guide

Dubbed by some as the “mini Prague”, Bratislava is so much more than that – sure it’s small for a European capital but it’s brimming with bars, clubs, cafes, restaurants, shops and things to do. The stunning Danube links the city to Vienna and Budapest, forming the trio of the historic Austro-Hungarian Empire, and providing…

Bucharest – a mini guide

The capital of Romania, Bucharest was known back in the 1900s as “Little Paris” and with its tree-lined boulevards, Belle Époque buildings (don’t let the odd, austere communist-era building put you off) and buzzing nightlife, it’s a nickname which is just as apt today as it was back in the day! In fact, Lonely Planet…

Salzburg – a mini guide

The fourth largest city in Austria, Salzburg is a UNESCO World Heritage site, was the birthplace of Mozart and was the setting for the Sound of Music. It’s a pretty stunning Interrail destination too. What’s not to love? In fact, Salzburg is the Sound of Music city. Literally. Not only did the real Trapp family once…

The best European city to get cultured: Florence

I cannot think of a single European city that isn’t dripping in culture, from art to music to history. Even Warsaw, which was pretty much obliterated in World War II (84% of the city was destroyed by German mass bombings), was rebuilt and is brimming with culture. But when it comes to the one city…

Hostel focus: Villa Saint Exupéry, Nice

You know when people talk about how hostels used to be? Back in the day? Grubby dorm rooms with lumpy mattresses, lukewarm showers and grey, communal bathrooms more like an army barracks than a hostel? Well, the award winning  Villa Saint Exupery in Nice is 100,000 miles from that old school image. In fact, when people…

The best European city to go off map?

It can be hard to find a major European city that isn’t packed with tourists, especially in those busy, summer months. Don’t let that put you off – there are plenty of “off grid” attractions and activities on offer, for those looking for something a little different, a little less run of the mill. To…

The Best European City To Be Hungover In?

The Best City In Europe To Be Hungover In? Ljubljana of course, the capital and largest city of Slovenia. Ljubljana is, first off, a cracker of a city to party in (50,000 or so students can’t be wrong). And, while, waking up anywhere with a banging head, a mouth like a dried up leaf and…
