The Unsung Places

Travel books and our own personal experience is full of journeys to the must-see destinations or our country or abroad. Millions of tourists flock to see Paris or Rome, just to mention two in Europe. Beautiful as they are, I’d like to focus for a while on those towns which might be just round the  corner but are usually overlooked.

This article on Lonely Planet lists some of these places which are often forgotten. Hve you been to any of these towns? Do you agree with the article?

Go ahead and share your own personal off-the-beaten track destinations. You may want to talk about a town that is just 20 minutes from your house. Or perhaps an unexpected stop during a journey which allowed you to discover a charming town in the middle of nowhere or the natural beauty of an unspoilt land. Which place would you recommend a tourist to go to to get a taste of what your country is like, its traditions and culture?

Share your experience and recommend. Feel free to post a picture, too.

Here are the ways you can contribute and take part in the discussion:

  1. One of the most wonderful places I`ve been is Hallstatt, in upper Austria. A small town surrounded by water and mountains. This village was named after the glacial period. I remember having arrived by boat from the opposite shore where a train had left me. A surprising place. I know, Austria is a beautiful country but, if you have time after visiting Vienna, I strongly recomend you a visit to this small place.
