SPAIN’S two island groups boasted seven of the country’s top 10 “most beautiful” beaches last year. And two of them featured in Europe’s top-10 list, including the No.1 position!
The Canary and Balearic Islands featured strongly, the Canaries provided two in Gran Canaria, and one in Fuerteventura, while the Balearics supplied two in Mallorca, one in Ibiza and another in Formentera.
But the 2017 summer’s Traveller’s Choice awards, by review website TripAdvisor, put La Concha, in the northern Spanish city of San Sebastian, on top of the pile in Europe. It also has the additional bonus of displaying the best tapas bars in the world.

Cheap Flights to St.Petersburg, RussiaSt. Petersburg is the place miracles are made. Today, Russia’s second largest city is known for its stunning tsarist architecture, fashionable restaurants, shopping and electric nightlife, all set along the beautiful Neva River. But St. Petersburg is also the site of some of the most pivotal moments in Russia's history, most notably the Siege of Leningrad.
One of the most awesome spectacles you can see once you've stepped off a flight to St. Petersburg are the “white nights” that occur in the city in the summer.
