Are you looking for a romantic travel destination? Have you considered Bavaria with the famous Neuschwanstein Castle and its beautiful mountains and lakes?
While any place can be romantic when you’re sharing it with your soulmate, you would prefer a stunning panoramic view to facing a construction site and the natural sounds of birds singing, waves breaking or cow bells ringing to the noise of a nearby motorway.
This is why the peaceful and quaint village of Schwangau in Bavaria should make it to your short-list.

I can recall, not so long ago, when Lviv was a dark and lonely place, characterized by an intimidating street scape with its boarded up store fronts and dilapidated infrastructure- vestiges of the Iron Curtain era. The following are my notes to you about Lviv’s current cultural renaissance…

Venice, Italy – This beautiful city, built on a series of islands in the centre of a huge lagoon, is a classic destination for lovers. Famed for its network of canals which make up the main thoroughfares of the town, and for it’s distinctive and often crumbling buildings, Venice is a city full of surprises where you could quite happily wander for hours, hopelessly lost, only to find yourself back where you started. My advice would be to abandon all hope of knowing where you are and simply get lost in the winding streets, marvelling at the little treasures of architecture, shopping and food that Venice holds. A slight word of warning – Venice is not a city for party animals; wander the streets after about 9pm and you’ll be hard pushed to find anything to do. One for getting up early, making the most of the day and then retiring to a hotel room for the evening!

Until the 1989 fall of the Berlin wall, Eastern Europe was one of the last places in the world where Westerners would have considered spending their honeymoons. It was a place of foreboding gray and Communist red architecture, where the once vibrant cultures of the independent Eastern European nations had been subdued into ideology.
The Eastern Europe of today, however, is a honeymooners’ delight, with welcoming locals, affordable accommodations, mesmerizing history, and unforgettable scenery. From the bustle of the market squares in the major cities to the quiet, almost surreal surroundings of Lake Bled, your Eastern European honeymoon will have something you will not find anywhere else.
Honeymooning in Eastern Europe will let you experience cultures as varied as the geography of their nations. You can spend one day basking on golden beaches or biking through the vineyards of Crete, and another strolling along Vienna’s Kohlmarket, where you can relax with cake and coffee at Demel, perhaps the premier chocolatier in all of Europe.
