Spring in Budapest is beautiful. Spring is the perfect time to visit as Budapest has an almost Mediterranean climate. Take a look at the parliament that dominates the capital and at the same time the whole of Hungary. Walk along The Széchenyi Chain Bridge across the Danube, which is nearby. Take the cable car in the city centre to Castle Hill and explore the Hungarian National Gallery in Buda Castle. Be sure to check out the Széchenyi thermal baths with three outdoor pools during your visit. Their healing springs naturally heat to 38 degrees Celsius directly from underground thermal springs. Take the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing stay.

Although the April weather in Amsterdam is not exactly sunny and warm, it is still one of the best times to visit it. Why? Perhaps everyone has ever heard of the most famous Dutch flower: The tulip. Mid-April is the peak of the tulip season. If you time your visit for this period, you will see the entire Dutch capital in its greatest beauty. The blooming tulip blossoms in the vast fields of Amsterdam are completely surrounded. Keukenhof Flower Park is where you can see these blooming beauties during the famous Tulip Festival. Amsterdam’s circular canal system encourages sailing, and the adjacent city districts are full of cafés and restaurants. Be sure to take the time to visit major landmarks such as the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam or Anne Frank’s house.


Paris – France

When you say Paris, you won’t find anyone who doesn’t know it, and the spring months are perhaps the best time to visit it. The April sun allows cafés to open outdoor terraces, and with the first warming, the first flowers begin to appear in Parisian gardens and parks, and leaves begin to turn green on the trees. No wonder the city spends millions each year maintaining greenery to attract new tourists to Luxembourg’s gardens to tulip flowerbeds. Visit the Louvre, one of the most visited museums in the world or another 170 museums and 1800 other monuments to visit in Paris.


Krakow – Poland

During April, a warm spring is slowly coming to the metropolis of Malopolsky Voivodeship in southern Poland, Krakow. Head to Krakow in spring and visit the beautiful sun-soaked city. Krakow is the historic residence of former Polish kings with the iconic Wawel Castle and the adjacent cathedral towering over the city. The old town is a maze of narrow cobbled streets leading to the medieval Market Square (Rynek Glówny), lined with churches, townhouses and palaces. Unlike Warsaw, the historic centre of Krakow was spared destruction during World War II. Don't forget to visit the former Jewish quarter of Kazimierz, where you’ll find a number of synagogues, and several scenes of the film Schindler’s List were filmed at the Jewish Cemetery.
