Not sure if these cities suit your fancy? Check out what Time.com had to say about Prague:
[T]he City of a Thousand Spires has become one of Europe’s hippest travel destinations — a cosmopolitan city where culture buffs and pleasure seekers mingle happily in chic cafés and Gothic cathedrals. Whether you’re sleeping at a former monastery turned five-star hotel or dancing in a onetime nuclear bunker, you’ll quickly realize that in Prague, the unconventional is conventional: after all, this is Bohemia.
If that’s not enough for you, the Huffington Post calls Berlin “the most interesting city in Europe“; HuffPo blogger Melissa Biggs Bradley says, “Berlin is one of the most exciting, provocative and stimulating places I have ever visited.”
