One of the main reasons people flock to Europe is for a taste of its history. Packed full of gorgeous architecture, the buildings you'll come across here are like no other. 

Without a doubt one of the most picturesque locations in Europe is Holland — and there's one tiny town in particular we recommend you visit. Giethoorn, located in northern Holland, is a tranquil village built upon a network of narrow canals.

With a population of around 2,600, it's full of thatched-roof cottages and wooden bridges, where "the loudest sound you can normally hear is the quacking of a duck or the noise made by other birds."

Just picture reading that old fairytale, Hansel and Gretel and you'll paint a pretty similar picture. Did we mention that this town is so remote that the postman delivers mail by boat? It's truly a must-see on your next visit to Europe.
