10 - Chisinau in Moldova, about 1.89 million visitors a year

In tenth place in this ranking is the city of Chisinau capital of Moldova.

  • Because people don't visit it:
    We can also say that Moldova in general is a country that has not yet equipped itself with an effective tourism system and therefore is unable to implement a promotion. These are the reasons why the nation does not have a great attraction towards European mass tourism.
  • Because it would be worth a visit:
    The capital boasts several attractions, the most important are the Sacred Door built in 1841, the Orthodox Cathedral of 1836 and the Government Palace.

9 - Zagreb in Croatia, about 1 million visitors a year

In ninth place we have zagabria the capital of Croatia.



  • Because people don't visit it:
    The Croatian capital compared to other areas of the nation. Firstly due to the lack of publicity towards mass tourism, oriented more towards the coastal area of ​​the nation, and secondly due to the climate. In fact, the mid-seasons are quite rainy and the winter is very harsh and characterized by heavy snowfalls.
  • Because it would be worth a visit:
    The city is divided into the Upper and Lower parts, both full of attractions. In the upper part, the oldest one, we can find the Cathedral of the Assumption of Gothic origin inside which we can find frescoes dating back to 1200, the Lotrscak Tower which served as a defense of the southern part of the city and from which a shot is fired at noon. cannon to re-enact the battle against the Ottomans. Finally, the Church of San Marco which has a very original tiled roof on which the medieval coats of arms of Croatia are found.

5 - Vaduz in Liechtenstein, about 60 visitors a year

In fifth place we find Vaduz capital of Liechtenstein with a population of about five thousand inhabitants.

  • Because people don't visit it:
    It is certainly not a popular destination for mass tourism. The average Italian citizen is not even aware of its existence, let alone if he would deign to visit it. If it were not one of the richest countries in the world in terms of gross domestic product, as well as a tax haven, the rest of the European population would also ignore it.
  • Because it would be worth a visit:
    The few main attractions are the medieval castle, the current residence of the Prince of Liechtenstein, the Cathedral of St. Florin, a Gothic-style building of only one hundred years and the Kunstmusem, an interesting museum of modern art.

4 - Minsk in Belarus, about 46 thousand visitors a year

In fourth place we find the city of Minsk capital of Belarus.

  • Because people don't visit it:
    The nations of the former Soviet Union tend not to be very popular, and of all Belarus is one of the least visited. It is no coincidence that its capital is awarded the "wooden medal".
  • Because it would be worth a visit:
    The places to go to see are the Cathedral of San Giuseppe, the Red Church, that of San Pietro and Paolo, that of Santa Maria Maddalena. Other things that deserve to be visited are the Obelisk of Victory in Piazza della Vittoria and the National Library Building.

2 - Podgorica in Montenegro, about 30 thousand visitors a year

In second place is the city of Podgorica capital of Montenegro.

  • Because people don't visit it:
    It is widely believed that the city, like the rest of the nation, has very little to offer in terms of tourism. The harsh climate certainly does not favor the influx of visitors, also considering that there are no important tourist centers in the extreme vicinity.
  • Because it would be worth a visit:
    The places of interest are the old town and the Cathedral of the Resurrection. Podgorica is also called the city of bridges. The oldest is the stone one called "Most na Sastavcima" which is located on the Ribnica River and was presumably built in Roman times.

1 - Tallinn in Estonia, about 22 thousand visitors a year

In the first place we find the city of Tallinn capital ofEstonia. This is certainly a surprise, considering that it is a city in strong commercial expansion. Certainly, among all those present in the ranking, it is the capital with the greatest potential; it would not surprise us at all to see the number of tourists grow more and more in the coming years.

  • Because people don't visit it:
    The thing that makes this city less touristy than others is certainly the really harsh climate, which pushes the population to live a rather homely life. Unlike what happens in other northern European countries such as Finland, Sweden and Norway, Estonia does not organize important events, parties or concerts during the winter period, outside the winter markets.
  • Because it would be worth a visit:
    Tallin offers some characteristic attractions such as the Old Town and the Medieval Castle. But the real reason why Val la Pona goes to this beautiful capital are the traditional markets organized in the period before Christmas.
