Richard

Europe

2 Week European Vacation

I'm planning a trip to Europe. I've been to most substantial western European cities and a few central/eastern cities, but haven't experienced Europe in 9 years, except for London. My new wife has been to cities in England, also Paris and Rome. We want to encounter European culture, e.g., architecture, music, art, cuisine, etc in distinct/unfrequented cities.

Please supply a list of countries/cities for me to build an itinerary around. We have 2 weeks to explore in the month of June of this year.

Thanks in advance for your responses.

June is a great time to visit Scandinavia, with long days stretching past midnight in some parts. It's easy to get around by train or low-cost flights. I love Gothenburg - visit the archipelgo islands for solitude and swimming and eat some of the best seafood in great restaurants in the city. Also if you go there don't miss the Haga quarter. Copenhagen is always worth a visit. It would be easy to add on Helsinki for a day or two and take the ferry over to Tallinn and also to Saint Petersburg (Russia) for a couple of nights. 
Ireland is lovely in June. You could travel on the Wild Atlantic Way through Cork and Kerry, drive through The Burren , visit Galway and Connemara and travel through Ireland's Ancient East. There are also some great cycling and hiking routes. Good weather is never guaranteed but in June it's often decent.

Hi Richard,
How about the Balkans or the Baltic region? These regions feature culture-rich old towns, architectural treasures, ancient history, lively nightlife, and exotic cuisine.
Last year I visited the Balkans, and this year I will be heading to the Baltic region. Here is a summary of countries/cities in the Balkans you can visit:
Bulgaria - Sofia 
Bosnia and Herzegovina - Sarajevo and Mostar
Croatia - Dubrovnik
Montenegro - Herceg Novi and Kotor
Albania - Tirana and Berat
Kosovo - Peja and Prizren
Macedonia - Ohrid and Skopje

Hello! I have some friends who love coming to Belarus - that's in case you are more into exploring and visiting something completely different from seaside Balkans and touristic paths. Since you asked for the safest destinations so I figured you are not into all-inclusive planned destinations. Belarus is one of the safest and cleanest countries, yet you'll get some unexpected impressions - that's what my foreign friends tell me when they come to visit.
