After attending the World Open Freestyle Football Championships in Prague, I had a couple of days to myself before I returned back home. Left with a tight budget, I had to explore as much of Europe I could. So here's what you can do in 5 days across Europe

Day 1

The city roads

We arrived in the city at the evening time only to be greeted by the rustic yet artistic streets of the city.

We spent the rest of the day trying local cuisines and smoking seesha, a practice very common across Budapest. The city has got one of the most accessible public transport system in Europe.

Day 2

The chain bridge connecting Buda to Pest

We spent the Next day exploring a few iconic places of the city in order to have a better understanding of its history. The people of the city are very friendly and always ready to help.

Day 3

After Budapest, I decided to break from my group and visit Vienna. So I caught a Flix Bus that night and reached Vienna, the very next day.

Vienna was majestic. The inner circle listed as one of UNESCO's world heritage site, is one of the most exquisite and royal places to visit. I joined a walking tour guide group to see around the places.

Come the evening, I found my way back to the central bus station to catch my bus for the third and last stop of the travel.

Day 4

The city at night

I reached Innsbruck, the city overlooking the beautiful Alps mountain, only to rediscover the meaning of heaven. A place so serene, so calm it had its hold on me. I spent the first day only travelling in the streets and reminiscing the beauty of the city.

Day 5

The bustling market

The 2nd day in the city was slow as it was drizzling since the morning and the temperatures had dropped drastically. But as soon as I stepped out, I realized that the rain only added to the already serene environment.

The city boasts of some very old buildings and designs that are a major tourist attraction. A lightly populated city, almost all the places are accessible on foot. If you are planning a Europe trip, Innsbruck is a must stop on your list.

There were other amenities available by which we could have seem the bird's eye view of the city, but we choose to trek uptown and saw this
