Drubovnik - Croatia
Dubrovnik is no longer a name that refers us to a cruel war and destruction, but makes us think of a beautiful city with a heritage that managed to resurface after the battle. Croatia's biggest tourist attraction is the 20th destination in Europe for travelers
St. Petersburg - Russia
The city on the banks of the Baltic is the preferred choice of Tripadvisor travelers to get to know Russia. The new Mariinski Theater, recently opened and in the image, adds to the appeal of its streets, palaces and museums such as the Hermitag
Krakow - Poland
Eight million tourists visit Krakow every year, which is by far the preferred destination in their country, Poland. Since 1978 its historical center is a World Heritage Site and, especially since the fall of the iron curtain, it does not stop attracting travelers.
Zermatt - Switzerland
At the foot of the Matterhorn, the small Swiss town of Zermatt offers an environment of an unusual natural beauty and the cozy tranquility of a mountain village. Winter sports when it is covered with snow and multiple activities in the Alpine summer are the culmination of the proposal that leads Zermatt to be one of Europe's favorite destinations
Although St. Petersburg has always left the Russian capital in the background in tourism, more and more Moscow is positioning itself as an increasingly attractive destination.
The Irish capital has always been a very welcoming city for the traveler and, in fact, its people and its famous pubs are probably its biggest demands, although there is also a lot of culture and history to enjoy.
The fourth Italian city of the five on the list - the fifth is Naples - is perhaps the most surprising of all: the informal capital of the north of the country has some treasures such as its beautiful cathedral -in the image-, but at least until Now the rich city of Lombard has always been the "poor sister" of Italian cities in terms of tourism, at least so far.
As many will know, Budapest is nothing but the union of two cities on the banks of the Danube: Buda and Pest.

Naples - Italy
Naples is the fifth Italian city list, which makes the transalpine country where more destinations have managed to place among the preferences of Tripadvisor travelers.

Oia Santorini, Greece
Oia is probably the quintessence of what travelers expect to find on a Greek island, as Santorini is perhaps the best known of the islands that populate the Aegean Sea. White walls, a deep blue sea and dreamy coves are more than enough claim.

Amsterdam - Netherlands
The Dutch city goes through a year full of celebrations and reunions, from the reopening of the Rijksmuseum to 400 years of its network of canals, which makes it even more interesting than usual as a tourist destination
Prague, Czech Republic
