With many of us longing for a holiday, everything from staycations to adventure holidays are on the cards, but staying closer to the UK is at the front of everyone’s mind when planning a destination. With many European countries on the doorstep for Britain, let us look at these 5 destinations, which relate to the flags you have just found in the brainteaser.


Germany is a treat for the senses, from the cities to the countryside, Germany has something for everyone. Berlin, known for its electric parties, cutting edge architecture and textured history, it is sure to enhance the mind of any tourist. There is a lot to see and do in the city, and this 3-day day itinerary for Berlin will help you make the most of your time in the city.

Contrast the city with a trip to the Black Forest for a taste of Germany’s spectacular countryside.

The Netherlands

You can’t think of The Netherlands without thinking of Amsterdam and it’s not difficult to see why. Amsterdam is full of history, beer and people wanting to have fun. If visiting, don’t miss out on the Rijksmuseum, a Dutch national museum dedicated to arts and history and the home of the famous painting ‘The Night Watch’ by Rembrandt.

The Netherlands is also home to the tulip, windmills and bicycles; it’s worth leaving Amsterdam for a while and seeing the countryside, especially if visiting in Spring, take a trip to the tulip fields to see rows and rows of colour.

Windmills in the Netherlands

If you are looking to skip popular cities like Rotterdam or Utrecht, you could opt for a city like Eindhoven which is an equally vibrant, lively and creative city. It is the design capital of the Netherlands and home to both the Dutch Design Week and Philips. Definitely worth spending a few days in.


Those who visit Italy never fail to fall in love with its beauty. With its world-renowned food, to history and art that will take your breath away, it’s sure to impress even the hardest of critics. With more UNESCO World Heritage cultural sites than any other country, Italy is a place that should be on everyone’s bucket list. Popular destinations to visit are:

Rome, probably one of the most well-known cities in the world and oozing with history. A visit to Rome will see you mixing old and new, why not catch a scooter ride and see the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and Spanish steps, calling for a gelato on the way?

Florence, the city to see renaissance art at its finest. Michelangelo’s sculpture ‘David’ stands 5.7 metres tall and can be seen in the Accedemia Gallery, an impressive statue of the biblical figure ‘David’ carved out of white marble: one of the most representative works of the Italian Renaissance and one of the most famous sculptures in the world.

Venice, the floating city. Venice has long been a tourist destination and still marvels tourists today. With no cars, the only way to get around the city is by walking or catching a gondola. This slower pace of life enables you to see the famous buildings, the little shops selling the famous Venetian masks and of course the fashion.


And while you are in Venice, don’t forget to sample their gelatos – Italy’s popular frozen dessert. There are a large number of gelaterias in Venice and they even serve gelatos for breakfast. With flavours ranging from chocolate to orange, toffee to watermelon, chilli to bussolà and from Strawberry Cheesecake to Cream & Sour Cherry (Amarena) Venice is a gelato lover’s paradise.

Czech Republic

Pivo, the Czech word for beer and one you will see a lot if you visit. Beer is definitely the drink of choice for both locals and tourists. If you are visiting the Czech Republic for the first time, start by visiting Prague, not only is it the capital but the perfect example of Czech culture.

Where you can sightsee or lie on a beach. The choice is yours. Greece is a metropolis of history and beautiful beaches, coinciding with delicious food. Popular places to visit are Santorini, Crete, Mykonos, Corfu, and Athens. Greece is the birthplace of the Olympics. In ancient Greece, the Olympics were religious and athletic festivals, held every four years at the sanctuary of Zeus in Olympia.

Another historical site not to be missed is the Acropolis in Athens. Dominating the skyline the Acropolis is a must-see for lovers of history and architecture alike.
