Cities to Visit
 – I will give you some brief comments about places in case youare considering some places but are not sure whether they are worth visiting. Ihave been to all of these places (and others) so I am not just telling you to go tothe places that I have been to & avoid all the places that I avoided. I haveselected some of my comments specifically for those first time travelers or thosewith 1 month in Europe or less and thus, would have to choose one place over another. I have listed the following countries in alphabetical order and listed themain cities for that country. The cities that I have listed are listed in the order thatI think the average traveler should visit them (for example, if you only had time tovisit one place in Austria, I think the average traveler should see Vienna.However, if you had time to see 2 places, see Vienna and Salzburg. I have listedthe countries alphabetically.AUSTRIA –ViennaSalzburgInnsbruckGrazBELGIUM (although there are many other nice places in Belgium, these arepretty much all that the average traveler will probably see)Brugge – probably the best city to visit in BelgiumAntwerpBrussels (yes the capital city is on the bottom of the list)BULGARIASophiaVarnaCZECH REPUBLICPrague – make sure to visit Hotel Axa to get a $4 massageCeske BudejoviceCesky KrumlovCanadians are required to pay about $85 for a visa to visit the CzechRepublicDENMARKCopenhagenRoskildeESTONIATallinnFINLAND
