Life can get busy and overwhelming, sometimes you just need to getaway. Learn where the best places are to solo travel to Europe.
Life can get so busy and overwhelming. We are always plugged into at least one device (usually several) – constantly grabbing our attention with dings, chimes, and rings. Our mind is always on high alert. Then, the demands at work and home can eventually leave no time for you.
Sometimes you have to get away. Sometimes you need to hang up a sign and let everyone trying to grab your attention know that you are unavailable. Why? Because you want to solo travel to Europe.
Reset yourself at one of these 5 destinations. Your mind, body, and soul will surely thank you.
1. Amsterdam, The Netherlands
All throughout Amsterdam, you will encounter solo travelers looking to get away. Many find themselves here to do just that. No plans, no rugged outdoor adventures – just a change in pace and scenery while meeting new people with sleepy cafes and fabulous nightlife.
Of course, you can do lots of things here, like visiting the many history and art museums you will find. Chill out in the Jordaan area with some good eats and a drink. Or find your way to the Noord region across the river and visit Adam’s Lookout for an unforgettable view of the city.
Looking for some time alone? Take a stroll along the many canals that have beautiful blooming flowers along them. It is nothing short of picturesque.
2. Prague, Czech Republic
One of the oldest towns in Europe, Prague is a popular spot for solo travelers. It is a safe area that is easy to maneuver throughout – and you are sure to love the old cobblestone streets. From taking in this medieval city’s views at the iconic Charles Bridge to enjoying the off-the-wall museums you will find here like the Chocolate Museum and the Museum of Alchemists and Magicians. Or why not climb to the top of Prague Castle or visit its most notorious landmark – the Astronomical clock?
