Paris, London, and Rome are some of the first destinations that come to mind when planning a vacation in Europe. This continent, however, is home to many hidden medieval gems that may not be as popular, but are still well-preserved and definitely worth a visit. Here are some of the most beautiful medieval towns in Europe.

Tallinn, Estonia

The capital city of Estonia is often overlooked by tourists, but this hidden gem of the Baltic Sea with narrow cobblestone streets and fairytale architecture is definitely one of the top European destinations worth visiting.

Hallstatt, Austria

This medieval gem is considered one of the most romantic cites in Europe, and for a very good reason. Overlooking the lake and surrounded by mountains, Hallstatt is a charming town everyone should visit.

Eze, France

Eze is a small mountainside village located in the French Riviera, between Monaco and Nice. Its enchanting architecture, narrow medieval streets, and spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea will leave you breathless.

Sighișoara, Romania

Located in the Transylvania region of Romania, Sighișoara is a town with a rich history that dates all the way back to the 1100s. Wandering its charming narrow streets, visiting the famous Clock Tower and the home of Vlad Tepes, better known as Dracula, will make your trip to Sighișoara unforgettable.
