The Top 5 Cities To Visit This Year
You can get never bored in the city, especially one you don’t know! From the skyscrapers to the tiny coffee shops, the museums and parks, there is always more to explore, to see, to do. But where are the best cities to visit? Park Inn rounds up our top picks when it comes to bright, bustling cities that will make you come back for more.
St Petersburg – The city for Instagrammers
This Russian city is an Instagrammers dream. With brightly-colored buildings, old-world charm and lots of must-see sights. Firstly, stroll over the Palace Bridge (when it’s lowered, of course) over the Neva River. Connecting the main city with the Winter Palace, it’s a great way to get from one side to the other. The palace is beautiful, whether you get there in the day or at night. And it’s well worth a look inside, especially if you like gold! And of course, visit the main streets that make St Petersburg both a historical hub and a new-age city: Rossi Street and Rubinstein Street.
Depending on where you want to be closest to in the city, stay at either Park Inn by Radisson Pribaltiyskaya Hotel & Conference Center or Park Inn by Radisson Pulkovskaya Hotel & Conference Centre St Petersburg. Whichever you choose, you will definitely leave with breathtaking pictures which we look forward to seeing on Instagram, so be sure tag them with the hashtag #ParkInn.
Tallinn – Great food and sights
This Eastern European city is perfect for a weekend break. Start off your day with a traditional Estonian breakfast. Consisting of ALL the good stuff (blood sausage, blood pudding, cheese curds and black bread) …or choose pancakes. You can then take a trip to the seaside where you can partake in some volleyball or a meander along the coast. Next, for the picture takers, venture to St Catherine’s Passage, a beautiful medieval passageway that will take you back to the 15th Century. For easy access to all the above and much more, choose Park Inn by Radisson Meriton Conference & Spa Hotel Tallinn.
Berlin – The city with great views
Want to visit a place with rich history and a great artistic scene? Then Germany’s capital is perfect for you! Just by walking around aimlessly you’ll most likely stumble across locations you recognize in movies. And if you walk around purposefully, you’ll find the historic landmark, Checkpoint Charlie which was also featured in the 1980’s Bond film, Octopussy! Many of these locations are situated around the Park Inn by Radisson Berlin Alexanderplatz Hotel, which, if you stay with us, you can see a spectacular view of the whole city.
Baku – The best of both worlds
Can’t decide whether to choose an old city or a new one? Choose both with Baku. Visit the more than thousand year old Maiden’s Tower in Old Town Baku, as well as the museum that lays inside. Conversely, the Flame Towers are a new addition to the city and are lit up at night. Discover the pride and joy of Baku: the carpets! The Azerbaijan Carpet Museum is a must-see and although these carpets don’t fly you around the city, the Park Inn by Radisson Baku is so close to the action, you wouldn’t need one anyway!
Poznań – The multi-colored city
Proving that old can still be hip, Poznań is a multi-colored, multi-faceted town, with lots of color and even more character. Everything is in walking distance of each other, and Park Inn by Radisson Poznań is too. Visit the quaint Old Market Square or the grand palaces and merchants’ houses that are great examples of Renaissance architecture. Then in the evenings, enjoy the music and beers in the Old Town while taking in the scenery.
