It’s hard to narrow down the most beautiful places in Europe. After all, Europe consists of forty-four different countries, more than 700 million people and thousands of years of diverse history.
So, I reached out to some of the best female travel bloggers across the web and asked them to help me narrow down a list of the fifteen most beautiful places in Europe. (If you don’t see someone credited under the photo, then you can trust that it’s my own personal recommendation based on my travels throughout Europe.)
It was a tough job, and there were some truly beautiful places that just missed the cut. My apologies to Hvar, Ljubljana, Interlaken and Valencia… you’re beautiful, but these stunning European destinations have you beat (for now!).
So what made the list? Only the most beautiful cities, islands, regions and parks spanning the entire continent from west (Iceland) to east (Macedonia) and north (Latvia) to south (Spain).
To keep things fair I’ve listed these beautiful places in alphabetical order. Keep reading all the way to the bottom, because the last destination is just as beautiful as the first (really!).
There’s a reason I’ve traveled to Barcelona, Spain at least five times. It is easily one of the most beautiful places in Europe, and it just may be one of the most beautiful cities on the entire planet.
