Prague may just be East Central Europe's romance capital with the "thousand spires" of its medieval old town and modern appeal ideal for couples who want to experience Old World Europe with as few inconveniences as possible. See Prague's legendary sights by day, then enjoy the city's mystery by night. A visit to Prague castle will have you oohing and aahing together, while the crowds on Charles Bridge will keep you pressed close.
Dubrovnik has been making hearts beat for centuries. Share the beauty and culture of Old Town Dubronik with your loved one for memories that never fade. View the historic center from the city walls, and peek into forgotten gardens, crumbling edifices, and half-hidden cloisters. At night, share a bottle of Croatian wine at a waterside restaurant.
Though some may describe Budapest's glory as "faded," the Hungarian capital city is great for romantics. Architecture dripping with details, historic cafes, a lively performing arts scene, and the famous thermal baths make plenty of opportunities for couples to get to know each other just as they get to know the city.
