Alex, how could you leave Scotland out of that list?

I would also like to offer my support if you need any advice regarding travel or accommodation in Spain. Scotland too, obviously.

Wales is another beautiful country which hasn't been mentioned yet. Not quite as beautiful as Scotland, but still beautiful.

Well i left it out of the list because i have never been there, ands its quuuuite the side tracking to get to scotland we were going to loose alot of time going there. But it was also because my brother was planning to go to University there so we figured it would leave plenty of time to se Scotland later, but he ended up in Budapest instead

Istanbul is great, I can attest to that. Cannot find anything similar in the world.

Merhaba Street_Parrot,
I would also recomend Ankara. I lived in Adana from 2000 to 2002 and traveled to Ankara every three months for work. My family and I loved Turkey. I would also recomend the costal area. If you are into Christian history, the seven churches of Revelaton are in Turkey.

Another vote for Berlin here - I went there a couple of years ago but am dying to go back again and see more of it. I have three framed pics of the famous dome on top of the Reichstag which I love.

Another favourite which hasn't been mentioned much on here is Croatia. I loved Dubrovnik, Split and, most of all, Plitvice Lakes - one of the most beautiful and memorable natural environments I've seen.

Most of the places on my list to visit next are outdoorsy - the Slovenian Alps, the Scottish Highlands and the Italian lakes spring to mind.

Hey Alex,
If you are going to focus on cities, you should consider interrailing.
I did this a couple of years ago, and it's a great way to travel around Europe if you're on a budget (which I assume, since you mentioned somewhere you're a student ;)) For a relatively low cost you'll be able to make your way through Europe. Check it out to see if it's something for you.

My wife and I did the same back in 1990. Well, she wasn't my wife then. We loved it.

Street_Parrot,
I loved looking at your pictures of Ankara. Made me homesick to come back. I know I have been in someof those buildings.

Please please please PLEASE visit the Peak District in Derbyshire!

I cannot stress enough how beautiful it is!
If you love landscape/nature photography, it's the best place for it (in my opinion).
As said before, Scotland, Wales, York and the Lake District are all great places.

As for the rest of Europe, just try your best to go to different locations. Sometimes you'll find absolute gems out of places that are off the beaten track.
Bulgaria was an experience for me. I met some locals who were actually quite keen photographers (They were using old Nikon F4's! - beautiful) and showed me some stunning locations that I wouldn't have else known about.

Keep an open mind.
Speak to locals.
Have fun =)

dont know if its already too late for suggesting some destinations, nonetheless id recommend croatia as well.
especially dubrovnik and split, and smaller towns like trogir and the capital too of course - zagreb. you shouldnt miss visiting some islands like hvar, brac or korcula. you wont be disappointed! in fact, croatia has one of the most beautiful costlines in europe, the cleanest sea and much history to tell. :)
