Four European Attractions That Should Definitely Be On Your Bucket List!
If you’ve travelled to Europe then you’ll know it’s like a playground for tourists. There are so many places to see and things to do, you really should take a month out and visit this interesting, historical and sometimes jaw dropping continent. I realise that not everybody can take a month off and travel to Europe, this could be down to work or family commitments. Let’s check out some of the must see attractions in Europe.
Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris
One of the most striking pieces of architecture anywhere in Europe, the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is a must see. The gothic feel of the building is helped by the gargoyles and beautiful rose windows. Since 1345, when it was completed, it’s had a violent past, being occupied by foreign armies as an example. If you’re staying close by in Paris or near the Champs Elysées, come here, take time out from the hustle and bustle of the city and relax.
St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City, Rome
In the most sacred Catholic site in the world stands St Peter’s Basilica. Immerse yourself in the glory of this attraction with marble columns, angel paintings, statues of iconic figures and gold, literally everywhere. See the work of renowned painters Bernini and Michelangelo who himself designed a part of this structure.
British Museum, London
With the added perk of free entry, the British Museum is near enough iconic on the British Isles. It attracts nearly 300,000 visitors each year. With over 2 miles of galleries and millions of objects to view and study, arrive early so you can get around this must see British attraction in good time.
Centre Pompidou, Paris
Okay, I’m going back to Paris for the last of my must see attractions. The city’s modern art museum has been open for nearly 40 years after being established back in 1977. The modern build was designed by Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano and was a revolution at the time. This attraction is known for having its escalators on the outside so it freed up more space inside. After an extensive renovation in the 1990’s, it has become the second most visited museum in the country.
To sum up
I decided to talk about these attractions as I have great memories of them. There’s so much to see and do in Europe so it was hard to talk about just a few attractions. I will blog about more attractions in the future so don’t worry.
