Four Amazing Destinations you Didn’t Know you Have to Visit

The world is huge, and it’s filled with breathtaking places. This makes it very hard to decide what to see next – especially when we talk about places that are either off the beaten path or mostly only known to locals. Tourism can be a deceptive industry, focusing on the major – and best-known – tourist attractions and often knowingly ignoring others. Every popular tourist city has its hidden side, and often an amazing one that is hardly ever seen by the average visitor. Today, let us take you on a trip into some unknown places around the world that you might want to include in your itinerary the next time you travel.

Ca’Vendramin Calerghi, Venice, Italy

The Ca’Vendramin Calerghi is one of the four outrageously beautiful places you HAVE to visit when in Venice. In the summer, it is the home of the Richard Wagner Museum, in the memory of the famous composer that passed away among its walls. In the winter, the Palazzo opens up for gamblers – it is the winter home of the famous Venice Casino. It offers its audience, even those who usually prefer to conveniently play online at the Red Flush, an amazing and unique experience – traditional and modern games inside a space filled with beauty, luxury, and history.

The Ca’Vendramin Calerghi was built over 400 years ago as a dwelling place for crowned heads and noble families – and it shows. Its exteriors are lushly decorated, and so are its interiors, with columns, murals, sculptures, and chandeliers. It is worth a visit for everyone passionate about architecture and art, and it offers a different gambling experience to those used to playing casually online at the Red Flush.

North Stradbroke Island, Australia

North Stradbroke Island (known to the locals as Straddie) is a popular weekend destination for the inhabitants of Brisbane, Australia. It is a large sand island with a sub-tropical climate (the annual mean temperature is 25 degrees C / 77 degrees F) and amazing beaches, dozens of inland lakes, springs, wetlands, and an amazing and unique flora and fauna. Activities include swimming and other water-related activities, fishing, hiking, and whale-watching – the island’s Point Lookout is one of the best land-based whale watching spots in the world.

Kobarid, Slovenia

The Slovenian city Kobarid is a place where history meets natural beauty. The Westernmost settlement in Slovenia, Kobarid was inhabited for more than 2,000 years, as the archeological sites in the area revealed. The town had a history of turmoil, especially during both World Wars, when it was in the middle of constant clashes between Italy’s fascist forces and the Allies. Over the years, the town has grown into a popular tourist destination. For its small size, the town has a surprising number of fine dining options.

Schönau am Königsee, Germany

Last but not least, a little something for mountain lovers. Schönau am Königsee is a municipality surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps, inside the Berchtesgaden National Park, close to the Königssee Lake. The lake, surrounded by mountains in all directions, is the third deepest in Germany. It is surprisingly similar to a fjord, given that it is surrounded by steeply rising flanks. It is the lake with the cleanest water in Germany, thus only electric-powered boats, rowing, and pedal-propelled vehicles are allowed to navigate it.
