When it comes to the very best European destinations, bigger does not always mean better. While travelers typically gravitate toward larger cities like London and Paris, some of the region’s most rewarding and best-kept secrets are alternatively set well off-the-beaten path. From a tiny Albanian cliff town with stunning mountain vistas, to a Swiss mountain village known for its beer and cheese, it's well worth the extra effort to get to any of our 15 picks for the best undiscovered European destinations.

Good list! I really like it. Every ti,e when I read about ancient architecture I wonder how amazing is the world . Poland may not be the first place that comes to mind for a trip to discover castles. But if you love European history and archaeology, or enjoy visiting places of cultural significance, there are good reasons why you should visit Polish Castles. I would recommend everybody to have a look at this ancient beauty - The Niemodlin Castle.
