If you have already visited these famous cities, this does not mean that there are no interesting places in Europe for you. You will find many interesting things for yourself and in other European cities, for example, in Stockholm, Amsterdam, Munich or Helsinki. Tourists from the USA rarely visit less well-known tourist centers in Europe. Think about not visiting Tallinn (an interesting old town), St. Petersburg (a popular tourist destination this year), or Moscow (the capital of Russia).

At the same time, the main feature of the US tourist market remains: the majority of US residents prefer to travel in their own country.
