Rightly said, world is a book and the ones who don't travel stay on one page of it! From exploring the cultures of different cities to relishing on awe-inspiring and gratifying delicacies, trips allow one to experience and learn so much. Whether you are a history buff or someone who loves travelling, there are so many places across the globe that are calling for you. But for someone who loves both history and travel, the joy of the entire trip just doubles up.
So, if you have been planning a vacation, then you must consider the following destinations that will take you back in time.
If you are a true history buff and willing to witness the age-old Greek culture, heritage and much more, then Athens is the perfect destination for you. It is home to magnificent monuments, museums, temples, cultural squares, cobbled streets, traditional markets and beaches that will ensure you a heart-warming experience. The Acropolis consisting of 21 major archaeological remains tops the list of best historical places in Athens. A sturdy rock in the centre of the site overlooking the city, the Parthenon Temple here is a sight to behold! Benaki Museum housing the art and other collectives from Greek civilisation as well as modern times takes you through a ride of how the Greeks transitioned and evolved. When in the city, you must stop by in the beautiful port town of Piraeus, which is not less than a dream. Panaghia Kapnikaria Church, Temple of Olympian Zeus and Temple of Hephaestus are the other must-visit spots here. The innumerable tourist attractions, shopping centres, good food and strong coffee would lure any traveller its way!
Decided upon Istanbul as your next destination? Well, the city with a beautiful backdrop, engrossing history and heart-warming culture, is among the most interesting places you will visit. Begin with Hagia Sophia, the church turned mosque turned museum, which undoubtedly is one of the prettiest sites in the city. This 15-century old structure is a perfect instance of architecture and holds incredible Byzantine mosaics in the art gallery. Do not miss out on visiting the magnificent Topkapi Palace, located very close to Hagia Sophia. Once the residence of the Ottoman sultans, the palace now operates as a museum housing a collection of copper kitchenware, porcelains and weapons used by Ottomans, Japanese and Chinese. Strolling through Istiklal Avenue, watching a whirling dervish show at Galata Mevlevi Museum and exploring the ancient Basilica Cistern are all not-to-be-missed experiences on your Istanbul trip.
With colourful baroque buildings and sapphire evenings adorning the warm lit streets, Prague in the Czech Republic looks nothing less than a fine piece of poetry that must be read by every discerning traveller! Witness the true charm of this historical city at the majestic Prague Castle, the world's largest ancient castle housing several palaces, churches, halls, towers and other buildings within its walls. Take a walk through the Old Town Square and admire the best of medieval architecture. Strolling across the Charles Bridge, climbing the St. Vitus Cathedral to enjoy mesmerising city views and visiting the National Museum are some experiences you would not want to miss!
Popular for its ornate architecture, rich history, vibrant art and culture, welcoming people and gourmet culinary delights, Budapest is full of enchanting surprises and wonders making it a must on your list. The city has numerous historical attractions that are the explicit testimony of its tumultuous past. Buda Castle, overlooking the city from its elevated position from the Castle Hill, is the first spot to begin your city tour. Another place not to be skipped is the Gellert hill regarded as a gemstone of the city. As it rises above skyline providing with panoramic bird’s eyes views of the historical city, the site appears nothing less than a dream. Fisherman Bastion, Neo-Romanesque complex of seven towers, courtyards and colonnades, is a popular spot to enjoy the breath-taking views of Danube River. Visits to age-old Matthias Church, Hungarian State Opera House and St. Stephen’s Basilica would only add to your mesmerising experience of the city.
