Beautiful Places in Europe

Jun 18th, 2010
Nice photographs of really beautiful places in Europe.

This is a small collection of photographs I've found while surfing the Internet. They show beautiful places that seem almost magical. Just looking at them puts a smile on my face, so I thought it'd be nice to share them. I'll also make posts about the other continents soon.

1. Foxley Wood

A gorgeous ancient woodland in Norfolk, England. It's believed that the wood is over six thousand years old. It's known for, among other things, the Bluebell flowers that grow in it.

2. Château de Chenonceau

An exquisite castle built on the river Cher in France. The castle and the water that surrounds it look like they naturally belong together. Note how beautifully the water reflects the architecture.

3. Saint Vitus' Cathedral

It's located in Prague in the Czech Republic and it's a beautiful representative of Gothic architecture. It's nothing short of masterpiece and it inspired many other cathedrals in Europe.

4. Monet's Garden

Monet's garden at Givenry, France, looks like it's taken out of a fairy tale. Claude Monet had a great passion for nature and gardens and he himself designed his own garden, which he later enjoyed painting.

Located in Poland, in the town of Wieliczka, this salt mine is a great place to visit. It features beautiful underground lakes, as well as corridors and caves filled with salt rock sculptures and ornaments.

It's a tidal island located in Normandy, France. A huge portion of this unique island is occupied by an abbey and a church. A bridge connects Mont Saint-Michel to the mainland.

9. Bourtange

It's a star-shaped village in the Netherlands that used to be a fort and now serves mostly as an open-air museum. It contains centuries-old houses, drawbridges, and windmills.

10. Neuschwanstein Castle

It's located in Bavaria, Germany. If you think it looks kind of like a Disney castle, then it's probably because the Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland was actually inspired by it.

Obviously, these aren't the only beautiful places in Europe. But they're certainly pleasing to the eye and they all have something special about them.
