The capital of Hungary, Budapest has tons of sites to see, including the famous Parliament, the beautiful Chain Bridge and the ancient Buda Castle, a palace that dates back to the 13th century.
If you’re in the mood for stepping into a fairytale land, visit the Neo-Gothic Fisherman’s Bastion.

Amsterdam is a world-famous tourist destination, housing history, culture, art, and beautiful nature. With its incredible canal system, and its extremely narrow, 17th century houses, this city is the grand capital of Netherlands.
Rent a bike and ride around the city, stopping to see the Rembrandt Museum, the Anne Frank house and the impressive Van Gogh Museum. If you happen to be lucky enough to visit during springtime, make sure to not miss the wondrous tulip festival.
