Budapest in Hungary is amazing! full of history, amazing baths, fab food,  food markets and the catacombs below the city is not to be missed. 

Also have you considered Scandinavia? Stockholm is beautiful city as well, lots of history. Grab a coffee and cake in one of the many tiny cafes in Old Town, have brunch at Djurgarden and check out the Wasa museum – a complete wooden ship from the 1500’s which sank on its maiden journey but that was brough up in the 1060s. its so detailed and beautiful.

Have you been to Austria?  Vienna, Salzburg and Innsbruck are all good choices.  Prague is an amazing city as well, very beautiful.

Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful places in the world, although it does seem to be a popular tourist destination these days. 

How about St Petersburg for a city break and then a tour around the Lake District or Cotswolds?

@MrsGo:  +1 to Budapest.

I spent a year in Romania and loved it. It’s a little further away though, and my favorite parts were visits to small villages. From what I saw, the villages in Hungary were very similar.  I guess the same probably goes for most of Eastern Eurpoe. Prague was beautiful too. 

 If you’re feeling like getting off the beaten path a bit, Sighoara and Brasov Romania are pretty interesting and if you’re into Dracula/history you can get some interesting stories.

Slovenia is a beautiful place. Probably my favourite place in the world is Lake Bled 🙂 Ljubjana is beautiful for a couple of days, you can go up to the castle on the hill and eat authentic food at their restaurant, while looking at amazing views. Bled is easy to get to, less than an hour on the train, and so beautiful, especially when the weather is nice and you can go for a dip!

 

Stockholm and Croatia are still on my list, can’t wait to go.

@MeghN:  +1 to Dubrovnik.  It is one of the more unique places I’ve been. I went on a cruise though, so I don’t know if its possible, but I would probably try to figure out what days there wont be any cruises before you go.  It’s relatively small and when you have thousands of people getting off the boat at the same time it takes a while for people to spread out. We did end up on a nice little beach though. I still have a ton of these little blue rocks I found, not nearly as pretty when they’re dry haha

 

I need to leave this post because it’s making me so jealous of your vacation.

Dubrovnik was amazing! It is a bit touristy but doesn’t feel crowded or anything. So jealous of your trip! Enjoy!
