Sometimes people choose a country to travel to just because it is famous and everybody has been there except you. But they forget that famous doesn’t always mean the best.

Bloomberg made a list of the fastest-growing destinations in Europe and we, at Nexter.org choose the best ones for you.

San Marino – 31.1% Year-on-Year Growth

San Marino is one of the smallest countries on Earth (after Monaco and Vatican) and the oldest country in Europe, surrounded by the territory of Italy from all sides. The territory of San Marino consists of 9 ancient fortresses (or commune cities), including the capital of the same name.

Residents of San Marino are proud of their history, honor their traditions and do everything to make the glory of a small proud republic spread throughout the world. That is why the guests here are welcomed warmly, fed tasty and entertained perfectly: they organize noisy festivals and fairs, museums with interesting expositions, and equip viewing platforms with incredible panoramas.

“In 2017, San Marino claimed more than two visitors for each of its 33,000 residents, notching 78,000 arrivals in total. It’s not a lot, but for a microstate that’s just 24 square miles, it’s nothing to sneeze at, either.”

Israel — 24.6%

Some people go to Israel to dive into ancient history, others – to relax in the healing areas of the Dead Sea (which, by the way, is not very good, because the salt is too thick), to dive into anesthesia on the operating tables of the best doctors, and to dive again, but this time in the Red Sea, with an aqualung, or to spend holidays on the beach doing nothing.

Turkey — 24.14%

Sunny Turkey is not only a cool resort, but it also has a huge historical significance. Turkey – it is a legendary Troy (by the way, a visit inside the horse is included in the compulsory visit program), ancient Ephesus with the ruins of libraries, theaters and temples, travertine terraces of Pamukkale and Cleopatra’s bath, the remains of the Lycian kingdom and much more. And of course, Istanbul.

“Turkey is Intrepid Travel’s fastest-growing destination to date in 2018,” said Intrepid Travel’s Jones.

Iceland — 24.11%

The landscapes here are so far from familiar that they can allow you to make a fantastic movie without any decorations. Climb up the hill and sit in silence, immerse your tired body in the turquoise waters of the Blue Lagoon and get that long-awaited relaxation, and try the local herring to understand why they call it “Icelandic gold”.

“The country has been skyrocketing to the top of bucket lists for years and has multiplied its arrivals by 450 percent since 2010!”

Macedonia — 23.5%

Currently, Macedonia is one of the most unexplored countries in Europe. Its majestic historical ruins, pastoral villages, pieces of a natural paradise in the mountains are still secrets behind seven seals.

Coming here means not only discovering all these and many other treasures but also being in the very center of one of the most contrasting mixes of cultures on the whole continent: Macedonians and Albanians, Orthodox and Muslims, Turks and Greeks.

The Republic of Moldova — 19.6%

Although Moldova was not the most popular tourist destination in Eastern Europe, it is changing now. The Republic is famous for two things: viticulture and the ancient Orthodox monuments – early Christian rock monasteries and medieval cathedrals.

Today, hundreds of different varieties of wine and brandy are produced here, and wine tours of Moldovan cities and villages are perhaps the most popular destination of the local “excursions”.
