Photo Series: Beautiful European Cities You May Not Know

This week for my fake #FriFotos post I want to highlight some of my favorite European cities that not everyone may know. Sure, cities like Paris, London, Rome and Munich are all great, but there are thousands of smaller cities and towns throughout the Old World that have their own beautiful qualities. Always wanting to help out the “little guy” here are some of my favorite, smaller European destinations.

      Shown in the picture is the old Townhall of Esslingen, esspecialy noteworthy is the old astronomical clock, that is still in perfect working order and has a nice musical bell system. Visitors should wait for it to play.
