39 ratings | 10440 views
Top 13 Best Attractions in Eastern Europe according to Lonely Planet 13. Lviv, Ukraine Lviv is in Western Ukraine and used to be the capital of East Galicia. It's the biggest city of the region and a major Ukrainian cultural centre on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Because of its Polish and Austro-Hungarian history, Lviv has a Central European flair in its architecture that makes it one of the most beautiful cities in Eastern Europe. 12. Castles & Mountains of Transylvania, Romania The Romanian region that so ghoulishly inspired Irish writer Bram Stoker to create his Dracula has some seriously spooky castles around. Monumental Bran Castle, south of Braşov, is suitably vampiric, but our favourite haunt has to be the 13th-century Râşnov fortress just down the road. 11. Taking an Overnight Train With the windows down and the scenery racing past, there are few modes of transport more pleasurable than the overnight sleeper train -- the best way to get about in Eastern Europe. 10. Walking Dubrovnik's Old City Walls, Croatia The city of Dubrovnik was built on maritime trade. In the Middle Ages it became the only city-state in the Adriatic to rival Venice. Supported by its wealth and skilled diplomacy, the city achieved a remarkable level of development during the 15th and 16th centuries. 9. Tallinn, Estonia Tallinn is a historic city dating back to medieval times. The first fortress on Toompea was built in 1050 and Tallinn was first recorded on a world map in 1154. In 1219, the city was conquered by Valdemar II of Denmark, but it was soon sold to the Hanseatic League in 1285. The city, known as Reval at the time, prospered as a trading town in the 14th century, and much of Tallinn's historic centre was built at this time. 8. Black Sea Beaches, Bulgaria The Bulgarian seaside has one of the best beaches in Europe. With settlements ranging from small calm villages, through luxurious five-star resorts, to modern urban cities, the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast can satisfy any taste and during the days of the hot Bulgarian summer. Most of the towns and villages along the coastline can be traced back to Ancient Greece. 7. Bay of Kotor, Montenegro Kotor is situated in a most secluded part of Boka Kotorska bay, in the northern part of the Montenegro coast. It has developed around Stari Grad, the city's old town and best known landmark, which is listed with UNESCO World heritage sites. The bay is the deepest natural fjord in the Mediterranean Sea, and the scenery around it is spectacular. 6. Budapest, Hungary Budapest is the capital city of Hungary. With a unique, youthful atmosphere, world-class classical music scene as well as a pulsating nightlife increasingly appreciated among European youth, and last but not least, an exceptional offer of natural thermal baths, Budapest is one of Europe's most delightful and enjoyable cities. 5. Kraków, Poland The city of Kraków is in the lowland of the Lesser Poland region in the southern region of Poland. It is the capital city of the Lesser Poland Voivodship. It covers both banks of the Wisla river. Uplands region at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains. It is Poland's second largest city, with a population of 756,000. 4. Hiking the High Tatras, Slovakia High Tatras stretch in the northern part of Slovakia bordering Poland and belong to Carpathian mountain range. High Tatras are divided into three parts Western, High and Belianske Tatras. 3. Moscow's Red Square, Russia Red Square is a city square in Moscow, Russia. The square separates the Kremlin, the former royal citadel and currently the official residence of the President of Russia, from a historic merchant quarter known as Kitai-gorod. 2. Prague, Czech Republic Prague s not only one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, but also the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. The city's historic buildings and narrow, winding streets are testament to its centuries-old role as capital of the historic region of Bohemia. 1. Saint Petersburg, Russia Saint Petersburg, founded in 1703, it is not ancient, but its historical cityscape is remarkably well-preserved. The center of Saint Petersburg occupies numerous islands of the Neva River delta, divided by waterways and connected by huge drawbridges.

Looks like LP doesn't know its geography much. Instead of putting in Central Europe, this video needed to include European Russia more and to include Moldova, Belarus, Armenia, and Georgia as they are all part of Eastern Europe.
