Tour Guide Mostar brings top European cities for best travel in 2017â€¦
- Bordeaux, France
The city of Bordeaux is among France’s most exciting, vibrant and dynamic cities. In the last decade and a half, it’s shed its languid, Belle au Bois Dormant (Sleeping Beauty) image thanks to the vision of city mayor Alain JuppÃ© who has pedestrianised boulevards, restored neoclassical architecture, created a high-tech public transport system and reclaimed Bordeaux’s former industrial wet docks at Bassin Ã Flots. Half the city (18 sq km) is Unesco-listed, making it the largest urban World Heritage site. The new LGV Sud-Ouest line, due for completion in mid- 2017, connects the city with Europeâ€™s high- speed train network and cuts travel time from Paris to just two hours.
- Ohrid, Macedonia
Ohrid is a small resort city on the hilly shores of Lake Ohrid in the southwest of the Republic of Macedonia. In the cityâ€™s compact old town, medieval churches, monasteries and open-air ruins stand alongside traditional houses with red-tiled roofs. The massive walls of the centuries-old Samoilâ€™s Fortress, at the top of the hill, dominate the city skyline.
Ohrid has transformed itself from Macedoniaâ€™s religious centre to its busiest holiday resort, and its beaches are the best by far in this otherwise landlocked nation.
- Pistoia, Italy
Pistoia is a city and comune in the Italian region of Tuscany, the capital of a province of the same name, located about 30 kilometres (19 mi) west and north of Florence and is crossed by the Ombrone Pistoiese, a tributary of the River Arno. It is a typical Italian medieval city, and it attracts many tourists, especially in the summer.
Pistoia earned the title in recognition of its impressive cultural credentials and devotion to grass-roots ideas and local entrepreneurship.
- Lisbon, Portugal
Lisbon is Portugalâ€™s hilly, coastal capital city. From imposing SÃ£o Jorge Castle, the view encompasses the old cityâ€™s pastel-colored buildings, Tagus Estuary and Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge. Nearby, the National Azulejo Museum displays 5 centuries of decorative ceramic tiles. Just outside Lisbon is a string of Atlantic beaches, from Cascais to Estoril.
- Moscow, Russia
Moscow, on the Moskva River in western Russia, is the nationâ€™s cosmopolitan capital. In its historic core is the Kremlin, a complex thatâ€™s home to the president and tsarist treasures in the Armoury. Outside its walls is Red Square, Russia’s symbolic center. It’s home to Leninâ€™s Mausoleum, the State Historical Museum’s comprehensive collection and St. Basilâ€™s Cathedral, known for its colorful, onion-shaped domes.
