Rijeka: Capital of Culture in 2020
Most people have heard of Split or Dubrovnik, but very few people know about it Croatia third largest city Rijeka. That's going to change. The city has been designated European Capital of Culture by 2020 along with Irish Galway. It means lots of events and festival atmosphere all year round.

Sri Lanka is a small country with as many as eight places on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Beautiful mountain landscapes, tea plantations and white sandy beaches are just some of the experiences the country offers. And they really want visitors.
Argentina: One of the editorial staff's travel favorites in South America
Argentina is always a good idea - and an extra good idea at the moment. The local currency has plummeted. The price level is almost comparable to Thailand, and the quality is at a western level. In particular, it is incredibly cheap to eat out at the many eminent restaurants.
Therefore, if you are looking for a travel destination with value for money, Argentina is pretty obvious. And if you are also into big city, good food, wine, magnificent nature experiences and waterfalls are Argentina a destination you should visit in 2020.
Copenhagen: Out well - at home is also good

In addition to hosting the European Championships bids København of culinary and cultural experiences, which can still surprise one, even if one already lives in the city. Something always happens, and both the traditional and the alternative Copenhagen are definitely worth a visit, also in 2020.
Austria: Beer, Alps and one of our travel favorites in Europe
Austria is home to unique experiences, both summer and winter. Whether you are skiing in the Alps, hiking among beautiful mountains and green valleys, or whether it is Tyrolean music and draft beer that draws, then Austria the place! Salzburg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and this time the big Salzburg Festival is 100 years old.
