As it is Europe Day on 9th May, a celebration of peace and unity in Europe, we take a look at some of the best places on the continent to find peace this summer.

Meditation retreats in Europe

If you’re looking for help in finding peace, there are many yoga and meditation retreats available across Europe in easy to reach locations including Croatia, France, Italy, Portugal and Spain. These holidays provide guided relaxation in beautiful surroundings and often provide a chance to learn something of the local culture and cuisine as part of the package. These holidays could be a life-changing experience, since they’re teaching the skills to take the peace you find home with you.

Thermal spas in Budapest

If you’re looking for a less structured way to find peace, the thermal spas in Budapest, Hungary may be the choice for you. The grand capital city offers a number of restorative spas, fed by thermal waters from subterranean springs. For beautiful surroundings, the Art Nouveau Gellért Baths are the place to visit, featuring mosaics and stained glass. If you’re looking for a little bit of excitement mixed in with your relaxation, the water rapids and outdoor pools at the Széchenyi Baths may be worth a visit.

Hot springs in Iceland

The hot springs of Landmannalaugar, Iceland offer one of the most natural spa experiences in the world. Water heated by lava beneath the surface meets with a cold water flow to provide the perfect temperature for a relaxing soak in breath-taking surroundings. The view is framed by mountains which are also very popular with hikers if you’re looking to get some exercise as part of your relaxation.

Walk in France

Often taking life at walking pace can aid relaxation, but it’s not the only way to travel and enjoy the view. In the Dordogne region of France, the slow pace is somewhat dictated by the river that runs through the region. As well as walking in the area, it is possible to travel by canoe or hot air balloon whilst taking in beautiful châteaux and medieval villages. If you prefer more conventional modes of travel, you can take your time driving along the country roads while you explore.
