14 Best and Recommended European Cities for Solo Travelers
Europe is one of the best places to go for a solo trip — the flight isn’t too long, there’s great tourist infrastructure, and the people are friendly. Here, 14 cities that are easily navigated alone.
The Czech Republic capital is a manageable size, with major sites concentrated within walking distance. Whichever side of the Charles Bridge you stay on, you’re just steps away from Old Town and the Prague Castle — both of which provided a full day’s worth of exploration for me. Just a stroll away on the castle side is the Petřín funicular, where I took in hilltop views of the city’s orange rooftops, Gothic cathedrals, Baroque churches, and Renaissance palaces. And throughout town, you’ll find stands to buy affordable concert tickets in exclusive venues, like the stunning show I caught in the Clementinum’s Mirror Chapel.
