During the final weeks of last year, Lonely Planet published its list of Top 10 Cities, and Top 10 Countries for 2018.


Be it museums and galleries, feeling the pulse of a bustling metropolis, or switching off completely on a remote island somewhere, everyone has their own idea of the perfect holiday. Everybody´s needs are different.

So, while Lonely Planet´s list is purely subjective, we must say there are several choices we agree with as great choice destinations for 2018.


Top 10 Cities For 2018

Included in the list of Top 10 cities are Oslo (Norway), Hamburg (Germany), and Seville (Spain).

As the capital of southern Spain’s Andalusia region, over the past decade, stunning Seville has transformed into a vibrant city with a rich artistic history. Already famous for flamenco dancing, Seville is now also famed for its backdrop in TV series Game of Thrones.

The port city of Hamburg in northern Germany is a scenic delight featuring hundreds of canals and large parkland area. In addition to the impressive Elbphilharmonie concert hall, which has put the city on the map, Hamburg is a wanderer´s dream with incredible waterside bars, restaurants and nightlife.

Known for its parks and museums, Norway´s waterside capital Oslo will be the place to be in 2018. In 2018, Norway´s king and queen celebrate the 50th year of their marriage, and Oslo´s stunning Opera House will celebrate its 10th anniversary with many great performances scheduled.
