“Not all Europe is the same”… Why do different countries have different travel patterns?

France Travel - Eiffel Tower

Travel routes that have been blocked due to the corona virus are opening and tourists are flocking to European cities. According to data released by travel platform Tripbitoz on the 13th, France was selected as the number one European country most visited by travelers. It was followed by Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom. You can see that countries that were visited by many Korean tourists before Corona are still gaining popularity after the pandemic.

However, even if they visit the same Europe, travel patterns vary from country to country. France and the UK were found to have visited the capitals Paris and London mainly. According to data compiled from January to May, 73.7% of travelers to France chose Paris. Other than that, it was found that Nice, a city in southern France, is the most visited. 68.9% of British tourists also chose London, the capital. In both countries, when 7 out of 10 people visit, they only focus on traveling to the capital.

In Spain and Italy, on the other hand, travelers are spread across several cities. The tourists who choose Spain are evenly distributed throughout the region, including Barcelona, ​​Mallorca, Madrid, and Seville. Barcelona, ​​one of the most visited cities in Spain, also accounted for less than half of the visit reservation rate at 36%.

In particular, the popularity of Mallorca, which was not widely known before Corona 19, drew attention. The largest island in Spain, it is twice the size of Jeju Island. It is known as the place where the musician Chopin recuperated before his death due to ill health. Although it was a popular Mediterranean resort for Europeans, it was also an island unfamiliar to Korean tourists. However, in 2021, soccer player Kang-in Lee transferred to the RCD Mallorca club based in Mallorca, and his recognition increased, and recently it is emerging as a honeymoon destination.

Italy, as well as Rome, the capital city, Florence, Venice, Milan, etc. travelers evenly visited all over. Rome and Florence have similar travel rates at 25% and 22%, respectively. Excluding Rome, the capital, northern Italian cities such as Florence and Venice are more popular than southern cities.

Top 10 preferred European destinations for Japanese travelers

Top 10 preferred European destinations for Japanese travelers

Europe travel destination that you must visit before you die

Europe, which has many things to see and many things – but depending on the length of the trip, too many European attractions may be a problem. Everyone wants to travel, but if you can’t, let’s go to this place. It introduces 10 European destinations preferred by travelers based on the Skyscanner search.
Due to COVID-19, travel is difficult. SkyScanner will continue to deliver inspiration to dream of traveling again after a difficult time, including travel information and updates related to COVID-19.

Eiffel Tower in Paris
  1. Paris
    Paris, which was selected as the No. 1 destination most searched by Japanese travelers, is an indispensable place for European travel. Two of the many reasons are definitely Paris attractions and food. Paris, the city of romance, has a wide variety of attractions such as Eiffel Tower, Montmartre Hill, and Louvre Museum. Also, as a country of gourmet food, it is full of delicious food and desserts, so don’t think it’s strange that you gain weight even if you walk a lot. Let’s explore Paris by becoming the main character of the movie Midnight in Paris.

The night view of London
  1. London
    London, the capital of the United Kingdom, has been voted the second-largest destination in Europe. Like London, where the world’s first subway was built, public transportation is well developed, so you can see London landmarks such as Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, Westminster, and London Eye without difficulty in traveling. But beware: London’s murderous waters – let’s go on a smart journey with planned consumption.

  1. Barcelona
    Barcelona, Spain’s beautiful coastal city, was considered the third destination to leave. Enjoying leisure on the beach adjacent to the Mediterranean Sea is also a way to enjoy Barcelona, but it is also recommended to travel along the structures left by Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi. This is because Gaudi’s architecture, which has impressive curves and strong colors, is full of Barcelona. If you look at the unique and overwhelming buildings such as the Guel Palace, Casa Vissens, La Pedrera, and Sagrada Familia, you will have no time to put down your camera. In addition, Camp Nul, the home stadium of FC Barcelona, is indispensable. Even if you can’t watch the game, it’s fun to just watch the stadium.

the Romans

  1. Rome
    Let’s take a trip to Rome, where the entire city is full of historical sites, which can be called a museum. It is not enough to schedule a three-day tour of the Venetian Palace, the Poromano, the Colosseum, and the Vatican Museum. Since it is a city that retains the traces of the Roman Empire, it has become the background of many movies, from classic movies such as “Roman Holiday” to “Angels and Demons,” and it is also an interesting way to enjoy the trip after looking for one or two movies before going on a 오피 trip. Tiramisu and gelato are also indispensable snacks in Rome, so you can enjoy a good time in sweet Rome.
  2. Prague
    Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is the fifth most visited destination by Japanese. Let’s enjoy the exciting time in Prague, a city full of love. A cup of coffee between the medieval architecture and the red roofs will excite you. Let’s also look around Prague Castle, Orroy, Carl Bridge, and Old Town Square. You will be able to feel the charm of beautiful Eastern Europe. Oh, do you know that the country that consumes the most beer per person is the Czech Republic? Czech people, who love beer enough to consume 157 liters per year, consider it a “liquid bread.” Because of that, there are many different and delicious beers, so let’s enjoy them as much as you want. That’s cheap, too!
  3. Madrid
    The sixth destination preferred by the Japanese is Madrid, the capital of Spain. Let’s enjoy this passionate city where Don Quixote seems to be running on horseback somewhere. The point of a trip to Madrid is to find some time to relax rather than hurry. Let’s enjoy siesta (a culture of taking a nap in the middle of the day from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.) like locals. Many small shops are also closed at this time. After that, why don’t you look around Madrid’s royal palace, San Miguel market, Granbia street, moisten your throat with tapas and sangria, and stop by Hemingway’s regular restaurant to eat pork barbecue?
  4. Frankfurt
    Germany is a good country to travel even if it is light in pocket. This is because prices are relatively cheaper than other European countries, so it is good to buy groceries and cook for yourself. Among many parts of Germany, Frankfurt was ranked as the seventh most preferred destination. Frankfurt, which is rich in attractions such as Goethe’s birthplace, Lömer Square, Frankfurt Cathedral, and the German architectural museum, is very interesting because medieval and modern buildings are in harmony. Also, the Frankfurt Motor Show, one of the world’s top five motor shows, is the city where the world’s largest book exhibition is held, so if you like cars and books, don’t miss it.
  5. Milan
    In Italy, along with Rome, Milan was selected as the preferred destination for Japanese. Fashion and shopping are the first things that come to mind when you think of this place, but let’s not think of it as Milan’s everything. Of course, you can’t miss shopping at the Serabale Outlet, but it’s full of spectacular things to see. Among them, Da Vinci’s Last Supper in Santa Maria delle Grazier’s Cathedral, the Torino-sentenced bull in the Arcade of the Vitorio Emmanuel II Memorial, and the magnificent Duomo Cathedral are recommended.
  6. Venice
    It became clear with this ranking that Japanese tourists prefer Italy. Relaxation is essential in Venice, the ninth-ranked city of water. Enjoying the maze of alleys is the best way to look around Venice. Don’t stress yourself with the idea of finding a way in Venice! Of course, you can enjoy the gondola by taking a water bus. With the splendor of the Renaissance, this place has many attractions such as San Marco Square and Rialto Bridge. It is also recommended to leave for small Venetian islands such as Murano Island, Burano Island, and Lido Island.
  7. Amsterdam
    Amsterdam in the Netherlands ranked 10th as a preferred European destination. Unlike any other Europe, which is full of old medieval buildings, Amsterdam, which is rapidly modernizing, gives a neat impression. Let’s rent a bike and look around the city of Amsterdam. You can find real Amsterdam in every corner. Also, there are so many art museums that it is a must-visit destination for art-loving travelers. You can also take a train to Zanescans, 20 minutes away, or sit in an open-air cafe along the canal to relax. Let’s not forget French fries dipped in mayonnaise and the Heineken Beer Museum.

Walking into “Romania and Albania”

In KBS1TV’s , the episode “Finding the Beauty of Eastern Europe – Romania and Albania” will be broadcast.

Bucharest, the capital of Romania. During the communist regime, buildings in Bucharest were demolished and most of the buildings were constructed as propaganda tools. Among them, a parliamentary palace modeled after the tin palace in North Korea. This building, which shows the ambition of dictatorship well, is the second largest among administrative buildings in the world after the Pentagon in the United States. I meet the symbol of Bucharest left by dictator Chausescu.

Branseong Fortress, which has the legend of Count Dracula, is where “Dracula” model Vlad Visigong actually stayed. Look around Bran Castle, a tourist attraction in Romania.

The Turda Salt Mine, a deep amusement park in northwestern Romania, is an amusement park with salt walls and ceilings. The 120-meter-long salt mine from the entrance to the basement was also used as an air defense shelter during World War II. Look around the salt mine full of various things to enjoy and see.

Tirana, the capital of Albania. Albania, which suffered from foreign powers until the early 20th century, has recently been revitalized by the wind of change. The trip begins at Skanderbeu Square, Tirana’s first tourist destination.

Verat, the oldest city in Albania. Famous for its 1,000-windowed city, it seems to travel to the Ottoman Empire because of its well-preserved architectural style. I meet a beautiful city registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Deep in the ancient Albanian city of Butrint, there is Sam Blue Eye, which resembles Albanian eyes. You can feel the mysterious nature here, which boasts beautiful scenery.

If your legs hurt while walking in Romania, the Gangnam Massage guide will give you a good massage.

Dracula, a hero in Romania, a vampire in other countries

As a child, Dracula was sent to the Ottoman Empire as a hostage with her brother, 4. Dracula was subjected to many atrocities by Mehmet (later Mehmet II), the crown prince of the Ottoman Empire, and his father Murad II. He escaped from the Ottoman Empire and returned to his homeland, but his father was assassinated by another race (around the age of 16 in 1447) and his brother lost his eyes to a hot iron and was buried alive.

Dracula becomes Duke of the Duchy of Wallachia, constantly striving to survive. He inherited the name of his father, Vlad Dracul, and made Targoviste the capital.

But society was unstable and the duke’s position was always at stake. There was a constant mutiny in which the nobles revolted and killed the duke. Dracula made the best royal palace of his time. After building an impregnable fortress, ‘blood purging’ began. The first priority was to remove the boyar class, which was static.

On Easter Day (1457), they invited them to the palace and asked, “How many monarchs have you served over the past 50 years?” They changed so many times that they killed them all. About 500 people were executed in piles. His method of execution was so cruel that he was given the title “Tepes”, “Thorn”, or “Skewers”.

Since then, death row inmates have been used in other ways. When the Fort Poenari was built on the mountaintop near Bran Castle, the surviving nobles of the Boyar class were used as workers. This Fort Poenari was a very important strategic stronghold. Dracula then notifies the Saxons of an all-out war.

If you want to use this road as a commercial road, you are ordered to follow your instructions. However, the Saxons supported Vlad’s political opponents for their own interests. Dracula led the army into Brasov, the Saxon stronghold. Thousands of people were captured. Many prisoners were put to death on skewers and left unattended. It was such a large number that Dracula had to eat there.

Dracula’s blood curtain is not over yet. He also decides to fight against the Ottoman Empire, which is seeking to advance into the West. When the Ottoman delegation came, it was said that it was an insult to the monarch to not take off the turban, but the delegation said that they could not take it off because of custom, so they nailed the turban on the head. In 1461, the Ottomans and Wallacai entered an all-out war. He propagated and asked neighboring countries for reinforcements and captured more than 2,000 prisoners the following year (1462). All the prisoners had their noses cut off.

Then Sultan Mehmet II of Turk (the same age as the prisoner of Dracula) invaded with more than three times the troops, and Dracula fought with all his might, but the war began to fall. He hid in Poenari Castle, but there was no countermeasure in the long-term battle. The wife fell off the wall and committed suicide and lost a number of generals. Dracula manages to escape using a horseshoe in the reverse direction. However, as he fought against the Ottoman army, he knelt on the knifepoint of the Yenicherries and was decapitated. He is 45 years old. It was in 1476 AD.

Romania, located in eastern Europe on the Balkans, is still an unfamiliar destination. Romania gained freedom through the 1989 civil revolution against Nicolae Chausescu’s dictatorship. Although the image of a communist country remains, the capital Bucuresti has more things to see than expected.

Best 오피-Massage in Romania

The Arc de Triomphe, which was called the “Little Paris of Romania,” and the National Assembly Building (1984), which is known as one of the largest buildings in the world. Famous buildings built during the Communist regime. Other than that, the old appearance that remains in the 오피 city center fascinates travelers enough. The downtown of Bucharest is not large, so you can walk and look around.

Also, you should not miss the fun of watching Sinaia, Brasov and Sighisoara. Sinaia is called the “Pearl of Carpathian”. Peles (Romanian National Treasure No. 1) and Felishor Castle, the royal summer star, are popular. In addition, there is a birthplace where Dracula was born and lived until the age of 4.

In addition, Old Town seems to have moved from the Middle Ages, including the clock tower, which serves as the city’s landmark. The city’s historical district was designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999. If you want to know more realistically, it will be helpful to watch the documentary “The Hero of Romania, Dracula.”
