From historic cities to party islands, Europe offers an incredible variety of destinations for young travelers looking for adventure, culture, nightlife, and beautiful scenery. Choosing just six of the best spots is difficult, but these destinations consistently attract youthful visitors from around the world.


Straddling Europe and Asia, Turkey captivates visitors arriving at Antalya Airport or Istanbul Airport with its blend of new and ancient. Start in Istanbul, where the East meets West, as you wander historic sights like the Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar. Then explore the turquoise-hued coastline and beaches along the Turquoise Coast, go hot air ballooning over Cappadocia’s fairy chimneys, or visit the remains of Greek and Roman cities like Ephesus. Whether you’re feasting on kebabs and baklava, trying a traditional hamam, or dancing at a Black Sea beach party, Turkey offers a tempting fusion of cultures, cuisines, and landscapes for young explorers.


As one of Europe’s foremost clubbing destinations, Ibiza delivers nonstop fun with its world-famous mega-clubs hosting renowned DJs. Yet there’s much more to enjoy than just the legendary nightlife. Chill out on secluded coves and sandy beaches during the day, then watch in awe as the sunset transforms the island into a party haven. Whether you’re watching the sunrise after an epic night out or exploring Ibiza’s peaceful inland trails, you’ll find bliss.


Mykonos has a well-earned reputation as Greece’s party island, with its glittering nightlife, sun-drenched beaches, and electric atmosphere. During the day, recover on the soft sands or explore the island’s whitewashed villages. As the sun sets, dress up for a fabulous night out clubbing and dancing under the stars. With its Mediterranean climate and carefree vibe, Mykonos knows how to show travelers a good time.


Prague entices visitors with its stunning Gothic, Baroque, and Art Nouveau architecture dating back a thousand years. Climb the Old Town’s iconic Astronomical Clock, walk the iconic Charles Bridge at sunset, or simply get lost wandering Prague’s charming, cobblestone streets. After dark, go pub-crawling through old vaulted cellars and feast on classic Czech dishes like goulash. With its romantic allure and affordable prices, it’s no wonder Prague is a favorite backpacking stop.


From the craggy cliffs of the Tramuntana mountains to the yacht-filled marinas dotting the coast, Mallorca has diverse natural landscapes perfect for everything from hiking to lounging on the beach. The capital Palma de Mallorca also captivates visitors with its open-air markets, the impressive Gothic cathedral La Seu, and of course Mallorca’s mouthwatering Mediterranean cuisine. With this intoxicating mix of nature, culture, gastronomy and sailing, it’s easy to fall in love with Mallorca.


This vibrant capital city has it all – world-class museums, cutting-edge fashion and design, bikes galore, charming canals, and a relaxed, cosmopolitan attitude. Spend your days exploring top-notch art galleries, stopping for apple pie and Dutch beers along the way. At night, hit up trendy cocktail lounges or dance ‘til dawn in Amsterdam’s famous clubs.
