Best destinations for Easter in Europe

Easter is important to European children. They are told that thousands of huge bells full of chocolate eggs leave Rome and lay their chocolates all over Europe. According to legend, if you make a funny face while the bells are in the sky just above your head  you might keep a funny face forever!


Easter in Europe is also a time of year when sunny days are back, flowers in bloom and days longer and warmer. Enjoy Europe's best destinations for your Easter holidays.


1. Craiova



This year discover the fantastic world of Alice in Wonderland in the Best Easter Destination in Europe! Craiova in spring is literally blossoming. Considered once upon the time the capital of Southern Romanian Aristocracy, Craiova offers now the most beautiful landscapes with amazing flowers in its parks, gardens and public spaces. During Eastern and spring, many projects on urban regeneration are underway in the Nicolae Romanescu Park


In Romanescu Park, one of the largest parks of Europe, ranked among the most beautiful city parks in Europe, there are hundreds of thousands of beautiful and colourful tulips and different other flowers. Designed by the French architect Édouard Redont at the beginning of the 20th century, Romanescu Park was awarded with the gold medal at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1900. It occupies an area of about 100 hectares and is located in the southern part of Craiova. Ample reliefs, alleyways, springs, water mirrors, waterfalls, a charming castle, a suspended bridge, the hippodrome, velodrom, pier, zoo and terrarium are all enclosed in the frenzied abundance of vegetation. 


Inside the park, children and tourists can taste the goodies from Zoofetaria – a cake shop with pastries in form of animals, they can take a ride with an electric karting car or with the swan-hydrobikes on the lake. From April to September, the Romanescu Park is the perfect host for concerts, theater plays and festivals at the Summer Theater - the largest open-air showroom in Craiova, with a unique architecture and perfect acoustic. 


This year, until 1st of May, Romanescu Park is the home of a magical land - Easter Market. With fantastic unique painted cottages like in fairy tales, with a giant doll, almost five meters high, placed near Casa Bibescu in the park and dozens of figurines of impressive sizes - hats, watches, mushrooms and chessboards, just like in the well-known story, Alice in Wonderland.


Travellers coming to see the Craiova Easter Fair can find also traditional seasonal products, handmade products from local and regional producers, concerts, workshops and playgrounds for children.


During the night, more than 130,000 light bulbs lit up and complete the Romanescu Park fairy tale atmosphere, every evening, in such a way that children and parents feel in "wonderland", just like the protagonist of the story from the chosen theme, Alice.
