Described as "one of the most fascinating of all European castles", the history and politics of ‪#‎Kralow‬'s Wawel ‪#‎Castle‬ date back to the Middle Ages. Some of Wawel's oldest stone buildings, such as the Rotunda of the Virgin Mary trace back to 970AD. A truly magnificent fortified architectural complex, this is! ‪#‎Poland‬ ‪#‎train‬ ‪#‎travel‬ ‪#‎history‬ ‪#‎Europe‬

With a history that dates back more than 2000 years and once labelled the most liveable city in ‪#‎France‬, ‪#‎Rennes‬ is the country's 10th largest city with a population of about 700,000. Pictured here is the iconic timber-framed houses in the city's Old Town. Is this somewhere you'd like to visit some day? Rennes is only a 2:08hr train ride from Paris. ‪#‎Europe‬ ‪#‎train‬ ‪#‎travel‬

Did you know that London's iconic ‪#‎BigBen‬ is a nickname for the massive bell in the clock tower of the Houses of Parliament building? The tower also holds the second largest four-faced chiming clock in the world. We think no visit to Old ‪#‎London‬ Town is complete without a visit here and a walk along the ‪#‎RiverThames‬. What do you think? ‪#‎UK‬ ‪#‎England‬ ‪#‎train‬ ‪#‎travel‬

The unmistakable setting for the musical, The Sound of Music, and birthplace of Mozart, ‪#‎Salzburg‬ is the 4th largest city in ‪#‎Austria‬ and literally translates to Salt Fortress. Have you visited its ‪#‎UNESCO‬ World Heritage listed Old Town and marvelled at its baroque architecture? If not, you really should put this on your list of must-see's when in ‪#‎Europe‬ next! ‪#‎train‬ ‪#‎travel‬

Usually regarded as the point of entry to the ‪#‎Algarve‬, ‪#‎Faro‬ is often overlooked as a holiday destination. Boasting more historical interests than other towns along this famous coastline, travellers looking for a laid back pace to R&R will enjoy meandering through the cobbled streets within the old walled town. ‪#‎Portugal‬ ‪#‎Europe‬ ‪#‎train‬ ‪#‎travel‬

The next time you're in #Ireland, you may want to visit the beautiful Kylemore Abbey, a 1920 Benedictine monastery built on the grounds of Kylemore Castle in County #Galway. Complete with beautifully manicured gardens, woodlands and water features, the Abbey was founded for Benedictine nuns who fled Belgium in #WWI. #history #train #travel #BritishIsles #Europe

So we think ‪#‎Amsterdam‬ is not only about its pretty canals and flower markets, but its pretty buildings as well. We can just be here to marvel at this all day! Have you visited the Dutch capital recently? ‪#‎TheNetherlands‬ ‪#‎train‬ ‪#‎travel‬

Built in 1928, ‪#‎Seville‬'s Plaza de España was initially used to exhibit Spain's industry and technology. Boasting a mix of the Renaissance Revival and Moorish Revival styles of Spanish architecture, the Plaza has been used as a filming location - ‪#‎LawrenceofArabia‬, ‪#‎StarWars‬: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and ‪#‎TheDictator‬. ‪#‎Spain‬ ‪#‎train‬ ‪#‎travel‬ ‪#‎Europe‬

A most stunning historic complex of buildings in ‪#‎Prague‬, the Clementinum, which is currently used as the National Library of the ‪#‎CzechRepublic‬, was once known as the third largest Jesuit college in the world. In 2005, the Library received the ‪#‎UNESCO‬ Jikji prize (Memory of the World). If you haven't been, it's well worth a visit the next time you're in Prague. ‪#‎Europe‬ ‪#‎train‬ ‪#‎travel‬ #history

A ‪#‎UNESCO‬ World Heritage Site since 1997, ‪#‎CinqueTerre‬ is a spectacularly picturesque string of five centuries-old seaside villages along the rugged Italian Riviera. We can never tire of this view. What do you think? Would you like to be there right about now? ‪#‎Italy‬ ‪#‎Train‬ ‪#‎travel‬ ‪#‎Europe‬
