When OFWs think of Europe, images of the Eiffel Tower and the landscapes of France, Italy, Germany and Spain immediately come to mind. However, there is more to what Europe can offer other than those top tourist spots. AFC Holidays presents these hidden gems you can easily visit from the UAE.

Prague, Czech Republic

Prague houses many of Czech Republic’s buildings that have lasted for centuries, case in point is the Prague Castle from the 10th century that has since housed emperors, kings, and now, the president of the Czech Republic. You’ll also see the St. Vitus Cathedral, St. George’s Basilica, and more.

Vienna, Austria

Home to one of the world’s largest theatres – the Vienna State Opera House is a sight to behold especially during the nighttime. In Vienna you’ll also find the Belvedere Palace, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the Hofburg, and more.

Budapest, Hungary

Known as the “Paris of the East” Budapest is home to one of UNESCO’S World Heritage Sites, the Buda Castle & Castle Hill which looks magnificent as it towers over Budapest’s iconic River Danube. You’ll also see the Fisherman’s Bastion, Gellért Hill, Városliget and other tourist spots.

Bratislava, Slovakia

Bratislava is quite well-known for its main castle that towers over the city, giving visitors a wonderful view from above. You’ll likewise find St. Martin’s Cathedral, Michael’s Gate, Slavin as well as other remarkable landmarks.

One thing that these four countries have in common is that they’re in quite close proximity to each other, which is why travel companies such as AFC Holidays makes it accessible for those who want to experience another side of Europe and explore its hidden gems.

Through its escorted tour packages, AFC Holidays offers free visa and a professional tour manager who is ready to respond to any of your queries, making travel easier and more enjoyable for you.
