Berlin is a versatile city and has something for everyone. There are plenty of sights to see, the Berlin Wall (obviously), the Brandenburg Gate, and the Reichstag Building just to name a few. The Metro is a great, easy way to get about just hop on and wonder around.
Located on Croatia’s beautiful coast, Hvar is the ideal place in the sun. That clear sea water most are dying to Instagram will be all yours and, although mostly rock beaches, the water and weather eliminate any wanting towards the sand. In Hvar, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to bars and restaurants. The nightlife is something notable, and Carpe Diem isn’t just a bar, it’s a party island.
Slovenia’s capital offers a great mix of nature and city culture; inter-railers will have heard of Lake Bled and its charm, which is a convenient 45-minute journey away.
Seville is another alternative to the ever-popular Barcelona and Madrid and, although the flights can be a bit more expensive in comparison to the other two Spanish cities, it gives you somewhere else to explore.
