It is the capital of Romania, a place rich in history. The term Bucharest derives from bucura which means to be happy. What fascinates the city is the architecture made up of streets and boulevards reminiscent of Paris. In addition, one of the most beautiful monuments of the city is the Arc de Triomphe which makes the city take the name of ” Little Paris “.

Belgradederives from the term Beli Grad, that is White City and today, after so many vicissitudes related to war and dictatorship, it wants to go back to being a lively city, both from a cultural point of view and as an entertainment. In fact, the new generations are rebuilding a new city from the ground up, more open to innovation and change. Innovation blends perfectly with tradition, between markets and modern cafes, between new and old neighborhoods. In Knez Mihailova, the entirely pedestrianized main street, you can access the Zepter Museum with its sculptures, drawings and canvases by Serbian artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. The lively and creative heart of the city is Dorcol, the most cosmopolitan neighborhood, where Jews and Muslims coexist with Germans, Armenians and Greeks. It is the neighborhood that never sleeps and full of life with its lounges and wine bars that transform to the rhythm of techno music. If you want to taste the typical cuisine, you cannot miss the cevapcici (rolls of mixed and spiced minced meat), soups, stuffed peppers and grilled meats. An elaborate dish is karadjordjeva snicla, prepared with stewed veal, cheese, ham and fries, while the drink to taste is slivovitz, a brandy made from the fermentation of plums.
To find out the cheapest flights we rely on Google Flights while for hotels we can only take a look at Booking, looking for accommodation, perhaps near the center and that is not too expensive. Belgrade is a city where accommodation is still very cheap (a 5 * can have an average price of around 90 euros per night).
Pragueand by far one of my favorite cities. In fact I have been there 2 times and I always go back willingly. The city that holds its own Gothic charm but with a youthful soul, Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic and has about 1.5 million inhabitants. Prague is a hymn to beauty, with its churches, Charles Bridge and its pretty historic center. In the evening the city comes alive with new life with its cafes and discos, which welcome many young people looking for fun after a day of study / work. The symbol of the Czech city is Prague Castle. Founded in the 9th century, it was the seat of Bohemian kings and presidents of the republic. It is one of the largest complexes in the world and consists of historic, official and ecclesiastical palaces, fortifications, gardens and picturesque places. It covers an area of 45 hectares. The view of Prague Castle is considered to be one of the most fascinating panoramas in the world.
But for the uninitiated, Prague is also the city of beer: in fact it is here that one of the best and cheapest beers in the world is produced, which will certainly brighten your evenings in company.

Budapestit is another goal to which one cannot depart sooner or later in one’s life. Divided in two by the Danube river, one of the longest rivers in the world, it collects two distinct souls that can be enclosed in the old and the new city: Buda and Pest. One fifth of the entire Hungarian population resides in Budapest, which is considered one of the most sexually open cities in Europe and the world. Among the most fascinating places of art there is the Buda castle which stands magnificent on the hill overlooking the city and the Parliament, which collects a very important historical legacy. The historic center is full of charm and places to spend an evening full of fun. The nightclub symbol of the city is the Mammut, which takes its name from the commercial center of the city.
