I’ve been lucky enough to go to Europe a couple of times, but there are still quite a few places I haven’t been able to go to yet: Spain, Greece, and the Czech Republic to name a few I’d love to visit.

And although the most well-known places in Europe are wonderful (London, Amsterdam, Paris, etc.), there are a lot of places you probably haven’t thought to see.

Throw together all the amazing cities and small towns that dot the continent and you can make an enormous list of underrated spots to visit.

Here are 15 places in Europe that might fly under the radar but are definitely worth your time and attention.

1. Gdansk, Poland. Architecture and history lovers, this one is for you.

2. Durmitor National Park, Montenegro: Much quieter than other European national parks.

3. Rovinj, Croatia: Wineries and adorable seaside towns.

Most instagrammable restaurant of Riga ??⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Restorans 1221 is located in the historical center of Riga, next to Dome Square in Old Town. This blue building was once a medieval building, but currently a high-class restaurant with very tasty food! Getting a table during high season is really challenging. The year 1221 was very significant in the history of Riga as many events had taken place during that time. The first street appeared where the first building was built which is now called as Restorans 1221. ⁠?⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠?? ?? 5 PLACES TO EAT/DRINK AT RIGA⁠: ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠✓ Skyline Bar – Amazing view of the city over some cocktails ⁠?⠀ ⁠⠀ ✓ Black Magic – The best place to try Black Balsam; the famous national liquor and delicious desserts in the coziest medieval themed cafe. ⁠?⠀ ⁠⠀ ✓ Street Burger – Have eaten one of the best falafel burgers here!⁠ ? ⠀ ⁠⠀ ✓ Fat Cat eklērnīca – A very cute cafe with delicious eclairs for quick bites in old town. ⁠?⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠✓ Riviera – A delicious seafood restaurant with latvian twist in the art nouveau district. ⁠? ⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Which countries are your favourite for food? ?? ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⠀ ?@sudeepkbanerjee & @globetrottingsu⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #abmlifeiscolorful #Visitlatvia #rigastories #living_europe #topeuropephoto #lpfanphoto #todolistguide #damestravel #balticstates #youmustsee⁠⠀ ⁠
