Is there anything better
to get you in a festive mood than a Christmas market? They bring together
everything that is best about the time of the year. Great food and drink, local
handicrafts and a warm atmosphere. And because they are often outside, they are
one of the most accessible activities you can enjoy this time of year.
But while we’ve seen a
rise in the number of the markets over recent years, they’re not all created
equal. And at a time of year when time and money is at a premium, you don’t
want to be wasting either.
Great weather, a fantastic standard of living and plenty of art and culture. It all adds up to making Melbourne one of the most desirable places to live in the world. It’s no surprise that the Australian city regularly ranks among the most ‘livable’ cities on the planet.
And while we’re not
suggesting that you sell up and move there straightaway, it certainly makes for
a great getaway. It is packed with plenty to keep you busy, from wonderful
museums and art galleries to fantastic places to eat.
Poland’s capital is
often ignored by visitors to the country in favour of the historic royal city
of Kraków. But we think that is a real shame: Warsaw is a wonderful city, with its
very own UNESCO World Heritage Site at its historic heart.
It is a city that has
seen some dramatic events over the years and has many fascinating historical
sites. With incredible architecture, great museums and galleries and peaceful
parks, there is more than enough to keep visitors happy.
If you love history,
great architecture and relaxing spas, then Budapest is the city for you. From
the arrival of the founding Magyar tribes to the invasions of the Romans and
the Soviets, it has seen a lot over the last few thousand years.
It all means that this
is an endlessly fascinating city to explore. From medieval castles to Art
Nouveau homes for elephants, there is so much to see here.
So, with that in mind,
