The medieval sites serve not only an entertaining purpose, but also offer a valuable insight of how life and people looked like in that period. Travelers can get an idea of how it felt like to live in those craft made houses, courtyards and to pray in their sanctuaries. Seeing and touching what people of past centuries left behind creates a special connection between history and present.
One of the countries to offer many ancient culture sites is Ireland. The quite, serene towns offer a diversity of attractions in addition to amazing green landscapes and coastlines which gave it the name of “emerald isle”.
People in search of more recent history, especially facts related to World Wars I and II or the cold war, can adventure to France, Poland or Germany. The history museums offer some answers and a better understanding of what those times meant to the people involved and how important freedom and democracy are.
If what you are looking for your vacation is relaxing in the sun or enjoy the romance of a sunny beach, Italy, Spain and Greece are the perfect destinations. The Mediterranean shore is packed with a variety of resorts designed to spoil their guests.
