Spring trip 2023: top cities for an unforgettable weekend
Bounce travel portal has released a rating of the best European cities for spring travel. Find out more about which cities are on the list
Traveling in the spring has many advantages. Compared to hot summer or cold winter, the air temperature in spring is more comfortable. Also, tourists mainly prefer to rest in the high season, so in the spring there are fewer tourists in many cities, and therefore the prices for flights and accommodation are lower. And certainly the blooming nature will add special colors to every trip.
Which city is best for spring break? Travel portal Bounce has published a ranking of the best cities for a spring trip. When conducting the research, a number of factors were taken into account: weather, accessibility, popularity, average price of a 3-star hotel per week, events, number of queries in search engines.
1st place - Amsterdam, Netherlands
Amsterdam is recognized as the best city to visit in spring. It also ranks third in the list of the 100 most visited cities in the world according to Euromonitor. The average cost of a hotel stay is $117.80 per night.
Amsterdam in the spring is all about flowers and blossoming. Since March, a tulip festival is held in the Royal Kekenhof Park, and in April, every corner of the city blooms. Spring is the best time for a picnic in Vondela Park. Also, on April 27, the Dutch celebrate King's Day, when all residents wear orange clothes, walk the streets and dance until late at night.
However, when planning a trip to Amsterdam, we advise travelers to familiarize themselves with the city's new tourism policy. The most popular city in Europe attracts most tourists with its entertainment for adults. In connection with this, the number of crimes in Amsterdam increases, there is a lot of garbage and it is quite noisy for local residents. Therefore, from May 2023, the city authorities decided to ban smoking marijuana on the streets of the red light district. Cafes and restaurants will also close earlier in the capital of the Netherlands. In the future, they plan to move the entire red light district further from the center of Amsterdam.

The streets of the capital of Great Britain are decorated with cherry blossoms. You can also enjoy colorful flowers in Greenwich Park and Regent's Park. Tourists are encouraged to stroll along Regent's Canal or visit one of the city's many free farms.
3rd place - Prague, Czech Republic
Prague is popular among vacationers. The average cost of staying in a hotel is $72. The iconic events of spring are the International Classical Music Festival "Prague Spring", which is held in the beautiful Rudolphinum concert hall. Symphony orchestras and chamber music ensembles gather from all over the world to perform at this festival.
Beijing (China), Rome (Italy), Paris (France), Vienna (Austria), Melbourne (Australia) also made the list of leaders. A trip to the two American cities of Las Vegas and Los Angeles, which are in the top ten, can be combined into one trip, since they are only four hours away from each other.
