Have your fancy sunglasses, proper seasonal attire and camera all ready to go? Head for Europe which is particularly beautiful in autumn! It will surely be splendid in any season, but Europe in autumn where the leaves turn yellow and red everywhere is so amazing that you may want to stop time.
The first place is Florence, Italy. The glorious vestiges of history remain intact in this city, and it’s the place that Michelangelo wanted to come back to after death. Not only Florence, but also the entire region of Tuscany, which this city belongs to, shine more intensely in autumn.
The cityscape seen from Michelangelo Square leaves everyone speechless as the red roofs are in perfect harmony with autumn leaves. The calm, quiet and peaceful atmosphere is almost too overwhelming.
Walking in the market specializing in leather, a material that goes well with autumn, and in the palaces and churches where the artworks of Renaissance remain intact, you will naturally melt into Florence that is perfectly complemented by autumn.
The city that first comes to mind when you hear the word Czech, ‘Cesky Krumlov’ located in the south of the Czech Republic. It is a small medieval town that travelers to Eastern Europe say is the most beautiful place in the region.
As the autumn leaves are lined along the Vltava River flowing around the town in an ‘S’ shape, it deserves to be called a fairytale town. The Barber’s (Lazebnicky) Bridge, stretching from the old part of the city to the Krumlov Castle and its Cloak Bridge are the scenic points where you can take some of the most memorable shots of your life.
From the observatory, you can see the unique terrain of different elevations, the colorful roofs and leaves, the blue sky and the Vltava River reflecting the sky all in one glance. The unique atmosphere and tranquility that you can encounter only here are so magnificent that they will be cherished in your memories for a long time. In particular, as the color of the town as well as the autumn leaves changes depending on the height of the sun, it is strongly recommended that you should experience.
Plitvice Lakes National Park is known to be one of most beautiful places to visit in Croatia. It inspired the planet Pandora in the movie Avatar, and it was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979.
This national park, which you absolutely must not miss on any trip to Croatia, spans a vast mountainous area of 30,000 hectares. It is strongly recommended for people who like mountain climbing or trekking. You can encounter superb natural landscape, natural dams, 16 lakes and more than 90 waterfalls of varying sizes while walking in the forest. The walking courses, which you can select according to your interest and physical strength, are well maintained.

In every region, the unique landscape is tinged with autumn leaves. If you are looking for a place to go to temporarily escape your busy daily life, head for Europe and see the beautiful autumn we introduced today.
