The streets have already acquired the color of gold – the main autumn symbols are crunching under our feet, reminding us that winter is not that far away. At this time you want to take a casual stroll around the city, go for a coffee in an atmospheric place and look out the window peacefully, putting your thoughts in order. Autumn is undoubtedly a fabulous time of year, and there are cities where it is especially beautiful. Let’s talk about the most outstanding ones here.
Some of the best romantic movies – Moonstruck, When Harry Met Sally, Autumn in New York – were filmed at this time of year for a good reason. In autumn, the metropolis, where millions of people live, love and dream, becomes a cozy town where you want to hide from all the hum and bustle.
A trip to New York can’t be called budget-friendly, at least because of the flight, but if you have such an opportunity, do not even doubt – this trip will dwell in your memories forever as one of the most impressive moments. When you’re there, a wide variety of opportunities for sightseeing shall open: days of red and yellow in the Big Apple is when the city peaks in its beauty. Make sure that you have time to see all the spots by hiring one of the famous taxis or opting for a Central Park bike rental (if you’re into bikes).
London itself, the capital of the UK, is a city of rain and eternal autumn. Some call it gloomy and off-color, but that’s what makes it special! And when the leaves fall down, London comes into its own for real, it’s hard to remain indifferent to its charm.
At any time of the year Vienna is in its own way beautiful and imbued with a majestic spirit. But in the fall, the main and most famous city of Austria turns into the European capital of romance and serenity. By the way, a trip to Vienna is much more financially accessible than to the previously mentioned great cities, while the sights are just as incredible. You can come here by bus, airplane or your own car with the whole family and immediately feel at home thanks to the local enchanting atmosphere.
By merely looking at the photos of this city, you get this special feeling as if you just had to drop everything, forget about summers and winters, duties and tasks, and plunge headlong into the autumn. Paris is always in demand among tourists thanks to its atmospheric streets, and of course, one of the most romantic places on Earth – the Eiffel Tower – has something to do with it, too. Add golden autumnal shades to everything, imagine this fairy tale, and go ahead – get your tickets!
If you’ve never been to Budapest, fall is the perfect time to get to know the city. Its popularity among tourists is increasing every year – make sure to see it before it becomes mainstream. Take the funicular up the Fortress Hill to enjoy the Old Town of the Buda part of the city, or stop by the Budapest History Museum on the way for an educational trip. There’s no place like this one, but you should check it out, not just believe these words.
When summer comes to an end, generally, you want to prolong it and get a bit more of the hot sunshine and the atmosphere of lightness. But the key to the fall is in being able to enjoy its beauty! Why not break out of the usual environment and go to one of the cities that turn into a fairy tale come fall?
Also, the very process of traveling in the fall is much more pleasant than in the summer. At least because the number of tourists darting back and forth is noticeably reduced (due to the beginning of the new school year, people getting back to work after vacations, etc.), and tour operators offer more favorable prices for trips.
