The best way to experience the wonders of European cities is to live in the heart of them. The pulsating centres of cities like Budapest, Berlin, Prague and Vienna are best discovered on foot. So when actor, Sayani Gupta took a European holiday, she knew had to find accommodation she could walk back and forth from. In her journey, she discovered some amazing Airbnb rentals that let you live like a local.
It’s fair to say that the chosen destinations did not disappoint. The mountainous backdrops, sparkling rivers, and architectural gems, to a very welcoming culture, added a fairy-tale feel to her trip. Talking about the magical experience, Sayani Gupta said, “The capital of Hungary is unbelievably beautiful. And enough can’t be said about Berlin, Prague, and Vienna. These cities have lovely natural surroundings, are a rich mix of cultures, and the people are extremely friendly. The architecture was breath-taking throughout the cities, ranging from Gothic and Baroque to Renaissance and Art Nouveau styles. But honestly, I could simply spend hours in the glorious museums! The most convenient part was that I lived in cosy, warm, and quiet little Airbnb rentals, right in the middle of the cities. I chose to do so because I wanted a home, a nest where I could relax and rest at the end of a busy day. It was lovely to meet friendly and welcoming neighbours, and sometimes, when I was in the mood, I would even cook at home. Since I was right in the heart of the city, I could explore it as much as possible, always discovering something new and amazing about its rich history and culture.”

It is also right in the middle of the hottest nightlife spots, concert venues, and museums, where one can spend long hours without realizing it.
