If you’re looking for history outside of the traditional stops of London, Rome and Paris, Europe offers much more than you could ever expect.

It is one of the oldest capitals of Northern Europe and is dubbed as the Silicon Valley of Europe. Having been occupied by Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany there is so much history to discover if you’re looking for a culturally-rich honeymoon. Budapest in Hungary is another location similar to Tallinn. Budapest has a rich history that makes it hauntingly romantic, and with the addition of the cruises on the Danube River and the fairytale like castles and architecture that makes up the city, sharing a hearty pot of goulash could make Budapest the perfect honeymoon destination in Europe.
