Beautiful and Unique Places in Europe

Europe is full of cliches. Europe has so many famous and iconic destinations, that there is no point in compiling a list of relevant must-see places. This list serves a different function: to inform readers of beautiful unique places that are slightly obscure and off the beaten path. This is a blog featuring lesser-known but exquisite destinations in Europe. Hopefully, there is at least one spot you have never heard of before:
