City Guides

Cities around the world can be some of the most interesting places to visit; cultural hubs with a mixture of old and new. Read my city guides below including Rome, Paris, Oslo and the luxurious Monte Carlo.

Each of the guides offers advice for anyone looking to visit, tops things to do and why each should or shouldn’t be on your wish list!

A Day Visiting Ljubljana, Slovenia

A Day Visiting Ljubljana, Slovenia

My guest house in Ljubljana was just what I needed and after racing to check-in by the deadline, I got comfortable and wrote up Zagreb, the disappointing city that was never going to be good. The next morning after the included breakfast, I stored my bag at the hotel and explored the city centre.

An Afternoon Exploring Zagreb

An Afternoon Exploring Zagreb

Zagreb was a destination I was actively avoiding on this trip as it felt like quite a bland place that was more of a travel hub, not a place worth visiting over passing through. My opinion today isn’t much different after visiting, not helped by the cold and rain that cast a gloomy mood over the Croatian capital.

Relaxing Things to do in Sibenik

Relaxing Things to do in Sibenik

My two nights in Sibenik started with the realisation I was staying at the cleanest hostel in the world and that here, I had access to a kitchen and a balcony! Stocking up on supplies to make my first meal since I left, I then took an evening stroll into the Old Town and along the harbour and the coast of the Adriatic Sea. As I watched the sunset, I was so relaxed I might as well have been asleep.

Trip to Split, Croatia and My First Opera

Trip to Split, Croatia and My First Opera

Split was where I relaxed properly and had a summer holiday. As I arrived, the coach journey from Sarajevo had been particularly dull and I managed to sleep through most of it but with several pit stops, I took some photos of the great Croatian scenery as we headed through and past Dubrovnik. Very mountainous, the coach journeyed along the water’s edge.

A Beautiful Trip to Sarajevo

A Beautiful Trip to Sarajevo

From Belgrade, Serbia, I remained in the Balkans and headed to Sarajevo, Bosnia, marking my three week interrailing milestone. This beautiful city is the largest and capital of Bosnia, infamous for the shooting of Franz Ferdinand which contributed to the start of the first world war, and for a bloody siege taking place very recently, 1992-1995.
