As far as travel is concerned, today I would like to write about European cities that more visitors got this year, which are the most famous today and receive millions of tourists every year.

The Greek capital has gained a lot of tourism in recent years, especially thanks to its spectacular monuments and the fashion to cruise around the Greek islands, many of them giving the opportunity to visit Athens. Wonders like him Parthenon, the Acropolis or the Temple of Poseidon are must-sees in this city.


The German capital has amazingly earned the honor of being among the best cities in Europe thanks to its well-kept condition and the countless leisure, tourism and cultural offerings it has for all its visitors. Places like Brandenburg Gate or the Museum Island are to blame for this city growing dramatically in visitors each year.


The Turkish capital is, in addition to being beautiful, one of the cheapest European capitals, so it is a great idea to travel there. Its main attractions are the Süleymaniye Mosque or the Archaeological Museum, in addition to its famous Grand Bazaar.


It is one of my favorite cities thanks to the magic that it gives off in every corner, especially in its natural places and its palaces, all of them very important in the history of Austria. The Schönbrunn Palace or the Tiergarten Zoo are just some of the wonders you can find there.
