10) Dubrovnik – Croatia
Croatia is a well-known and popular travel destination.

As a hot spot for millionaires and stars, it is well attended in summer. The beautiful city not only convinced with old architecture, wonderful alleys, and restaurants but also with a breathtaking rocky landscape that surrounds it. Fans of the “Game of Thrones” series will recognize a lot here, as numerous scenes were filmed in the small Croatian town.
9) Mallorca – Spain
Mallorca – that’s really not an insider tip, is it? Indeed, the small Balearic island is not a new discovery. And yet it shouldn’t be missing on our list, because it offers so much more than crowded beaches and mass tourism. Away from the famous beach promenades and bars, you will find a fascinating landscape, quiet beaches and idyllic bays. Rent a small finca with a pool and enjoy the Mediterranean sun surrounded by beautiful rock formations. Mallorca is always worth a trip.

The lesser-known neighbor of Croatia has a lot to offer. In Bosnia there are not only great holiday offers for sports fans, but also a capital that is unique in Europe.

Pure idyll, endless pastures, countless lakes and steep mountains – travelers will find all this and more in Switzerland. Peace, relaxation and a landscape like nowhere else in the world – that’s what Switzerland is known for. Meadows that appear to be painted and almost a little too perfect can be marveled at here. Switzerland is world famous not only for its landscape, but also for its food. Cheese, chocolate and more convince every visitor.
