Our Top 10 Capital Cities in Europe

Updated: Jun 15

When it comes to Europe, there are certainly a lot of hidden gems worth seeing, a lot of cities that might not be as popular as we would like but still are worth seeing, however, if you are planning on visiting Europe for the very first time, there are a few cities that you should consider visiting before you decide to explore more of this continent, in today's article, I will bring you what I think are the most important cities in Europe to visit if you decide to go for the first time.

10. Amsterdam Netherlands:

The Netherlands is, without any doubt, one of the most impressive countries in Europe, famous for its tulips, cheese, bikes, and mills, but is also a country with gorgeous cities, the most popular one being Amsterdam. This city takes the concept of nightlife to a whole different level. When you visit Amsterdam, you'll be wowed by the proposal of life the people here have, the freedom that gives the city a youthful environment that will captivate everyone that visits it. A city surrounded by canals that has a lot of history on it, as well as a unique nightlife, among the museums you'll find here, is the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh museum (Highly recommended!) and the Anne Frank house (Which if you go, take into account that you'll find long waiting lines here). There are plenty of activities one can do while in Amsterdam, from biking around the city to discover their unique gastronomy and going to all of their incredible museums. Regardless of what you decide to do, how old you might be, there is something for everyone here!

9. Berlin Germany

This is not your average cosmopolitan city; this historical city was renewed entirely by the end of the second world war and divided during the cold war, this city screams history all over it, so for those history fans out there like me, there is plenty of things to see, from the many historical museums to the incredible landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate to the Memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe (Although, if you go to the memorial, please keep in mind that this is, in fact, a very significant monument, not a playground, so be respectful). But not only is this a place for those searching for museums, but this city also offers a very vivid nightlife for those who enjoy the late nights. So make sure to visit this unique city on your next trip to Europe!

8. Vienna Austria

There are only a few cities in the world that embrace the present and their past as well as Vienna does, here you'll find palaces, mesmerizing gardens, the famous Opera (Which you should go and see at least one night) and thousands of cafes you won't want to miss, this city is extraordinary, and I'm sure it takes a special place in the heart of everyone who has visited it. The architecture here is just breathtaking, every corner you see is beautiful, and I must say, in my opinion, this is one of the prettiest cities in all Europe.

7. Prague Czech Republic

A city recognized as UNESCO cultural patrimony, Prague is a must if you ever go to Europe; no matter what time of the year you decide to visit this gorgeous city, you'll always find how enchanting this city is. The best way to get to know the city is by walking through it, getting to know the spectacular old town, Prague Castle, which is the most ancient and big castle in Europe, and the Charles Bridge (probably the most seen landmark of Prague) a city that many people consider the most beautiful city in Europe, should be on your bucket list.
