Top 5 capitals in Europe

Travelling in Europe is easy. You can backpack your way around or rent a car and drive to most places. For backpackers the Inter rail card is a great option which makes train travel cheaper. There are plenty of places to stop by and you get to see the main places of interest. With a car though, you will be able to go to the smaller towns and villages. To my top 5 capitals in Europe, you can travel anyway you want. It won't be hard to find them.

1. London - I have already previously talked about this fantastic city. It is my number one because of its atmosphere, and because there is so much to do and see. Not only the capital of Great Britain but one of the metropolises of the world. Come and enjoy Buckingham Palace, The Tower of London, Big Ben, the West End and much more.

2. Paris - the city of romance. Take a walk along the Seine, have a picnic under the Eiffel tower or stroll around the Montmartre. There is plenty for you to see and experience. Why not go and say hi to Mona Lisa at the Louvre, attend a mass at Notre Dame or relax in one of the parks?

3. Copenhagen - the capital of Denmark has a lot to offer. It is a friendly and relaxed place and somewhere you can walk around quite easily. Visit the Little Mermaid, have a beer in Nyhavn or take a trip in one of the ferries. The amusement park Tivoli is one of the oldest of its kind and well worth the entrance fee.

4. Prague - beautifully situated and conveniently located, this capital has a lot to offer a tourist. Walk up to the castle, visit the Jewish quarters or sit down for a meal in the square. Most things are within walking distance and are easy to find.

5. Stockholm - situated on a lot if small islands, this Swedish capital is stunning in summer. The city is rich in history and there are plenty of things to see. The famous Vasa ship, the castle and the archipelago.

Or do you have other ones that should have been mentioned?
