Wondering where to go in April? Fulfill your American dream and visit one of the largest US metropolises, New York City! Start your adventure with a visit to one of the busiest squares in the world - famous for its led advertisements and neon lights, Times Square. You certainly know it from more than one movie! April weather in New York is also favorable for strolling through Central Park - a huge green space in the heart of the city. Surrounded by skyscrapers, it looks fascinating and is a great place to spend time in nature! Fancy a thrill? Ride up to the observation deck of the One World Trade Center skyscraper and enjoy the spectacular panorama of the city. Wondering where the most expensive subway station in the world is located? Also here! The construction of the modern block of the World Trade Center Station amounted to as much as four billion dollars! What's next. See the Statue of Liberty, a monumental statue located on Liberty Island and one of the most important symbols of America. I guess we don't need to add that from the island you will also see an amazing panorama of the city? If you are interested in photography and social-media, in New York you will find one of the most instagrammed places in the US - the Brooklyn Bridge. Opened in 1883, it was the largest bridge of its kind in the world! Plan your vacation in April in New York and feel the real American vibe!
Longing for sunny weather? Plan your vacation in April in Istanbul! This fascinating city, located at the meeting point of two continents, will delight you with its oriental atmosphere, numerous world-class monuments and culture! Admire the Hagia Sofia, a beautiful temple considered an architectural marvel of its time, i.e. the first millennium AD. See its lavish interiors and surrounding minarets, and once you've feasted your eyes on its architecture, head to the Blue Mosque opposite. You've probably guessed that its name didn't come from nowhere - so what is it owed to? The twenty-one thousand blue tiles that decorate the mosque's interiors and form the most varied mosaics! We also associate Turkey with colorful bazaars, where you can buy the proverbial "soap and jam." The largest one is the Grand Bazaar - while visiting it, you will experience a real feast for the senses! The wafting smells of spices and incense, the omnipresent bustle and the whole feast of colors, makes this place really special! Shall we continue? Go to the underground Basilica Cistern, whose original function was to supply the imperial palace with water, in case the aqueducts were destroyed. The site was forgotten over time and was only rediscovered after World War I. The ceiling of the temple is supported by more than three hundred columns, arranged in twelve rows, which, we must admit, is compelling! You ask, does the April weather in Istanbul encourage walking around the city? It sure does! The face-covering, spring sunshine will make you even more immersed in the oriental atmosphere of the city! Go on an April city break to Istanbul and see for yourself its uniqueness!
Are you dreaming of a spring city break or wondering where to go in April? Opt for Brussels, the capital not only of Belgium, but of the entire European Union!

Of course, in addition to holding the country's most important administrative and economic functions, Brussels is first and foremost a city of art! Here you will find original murals, intriguing architecture and numerous museums that will please the eyes of even the most demanding art connoisseur! Start your tour of the city from the Grand Place - an irregular pentagonal square, surrounded by architectural gems, some of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites! Among the buildings on the square, you'll find the city's town hall, guild houses and the Maison du Roi, currently home to the City Museum. Fancy something delicious? A visit to Belgium won't be the same if you don't try real Belgian waffles! Savor their taste while strolling through Brussels Park - after all, April weather is also good for long walks!
Planning a vacation in April with children? One of the must-see attractions will be a visit to the Miniature Park, where you will see all the European buildings you know.

Speaking of the most beautiful monuments.... One of the most interesting places to see in Bucharest is the Romanian Athenaeum, a neo-classical building that is now the headquarters of the Philharmonic Orchestra. Why is it so special?

Where to go on vacation in April? Head to the city of Dusseldorf, the surprise-filled capital of North Rhine-Westphalia. Why full of surprises?
