2. Reykjavik, Iceland: Visit the Aurora Reykjavik- Saga Museum

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "It was very cold! But I loved the snow so long as I wrapped up warm. The local cuisine was pretty good, though there were some fairly acquired tastes, such as fermented shark and shots! I did the northern lights tour and the golden circle which I highly recommend. I also explored some sites in the town centre and a few museums which were very interesting. Particularly the Perlan with its ice cave and exhibits on Iceland's geology and environmental importance."

5. Krakow, Poland: The Wawel castle looks straight out of an ancient folklore
