5 European Destinations Worth Visiting Post Covid-19 Pandemic

 AD| Are you dreaming of happier and sunnier times? With the current ongoing global pandemic, things are currently looking uncertain due to coronavirus and lockdowns, but it's definitely important to plan ahead and give yourself something to hopefully look forward to. COVID-19 has changed all of our worlds completely, and not just in the short-term. One major difference we all face at the moment is restrictions on travel, and I'm sure your next European holidays and vacations will look very different for the foreseeable future. Obviously, I'm sure we aren't going to be able to jump on a plane and jet off anywhere soon, but it's nice to think about it, right? 

After spending so much time at home in lockdown, I've definitely been dreaming about warmer weather and future European holiday destinations, for when the time is right, the world is more stable and in a better place. For me, Europe is definitely emerging as a go-to place for travel, not only for it's beautiful destinations, but for its accessibility and its affordability. From an array of historic landmarks and attractions, mouth-watering cuisines, spectacular views and scenery, it's definitely a continent to consider when planning your next city break or beach holiday in Europe.

I've been fortunate to visit two absolutely beautiful Greek islands over the last few years. Both Crete and Zakynthos have been such dreamy holiday locations, and has definitely given me a small insight into the idyllic and breath-taking destinations Greece has to offer. Next on my list for Greece is the gorgeous island of Rhodes; the largest of Greece’s Dodecanese islands, is known for its stunning beach resorts, historic ancient ruins and soaring mountaintops. With such a variety of scenery, Rhodes is the perfect location for those who love to get outside and explore nature.

Dubrovnik, in the extreme south of Croatia, is known as the Pearl of the Adriatic. With such beautiful landscapes, endless beaches and a city full of history, Dubrovnik is one of the most prominent tourist resorts of the Mediterranean, and an upcoming European holiday destination for the younger generation. From visiting a variety of beach to sightseeing to museums, and shopping and extraordinary places to eat, this stunning Croatian city is definitely worth the visit.

A trip to Amsterdam would definitely be an unforgettable adventure. With beautiful parks and canals, a vibrant nightlife scene and various museums, Amsterdam boasts an abundance of activities and sights worth a visit. A modern city break destination full of history, art and culture, it's definitely somewhere I can't wait to visit.

No other city in the world features on two continents. Istanbul is the city where East meets West, boasting such multicultural and diverse traditions of both Europe and Asia. A city full of historic landmarks, spectacular attractions, stunning scenery and extraordinary food, it's definitely not one to miss!

Definitely one of the newest destinations on my travel bucket list, but it definitely deserves a mention. Cyprus is know to have the longest summer in Europe, and Paphos is home to gorgeous sandy beaches, making it an ideal European destination if you're after a relaxing beach holiday, and some down time to soak up the Mediterranean sun.
