Are you planning a short break? Nick Trend from British magazine The Telegrapf has 10 great suggestions for destinations which look set to make their mark next year, either because there’s plenty going on or because new connections make them much easier to get to – or both.
Lyon, Seville, Plzen, Mons, Catania, Bern, Milan, Deauville, Málaga and Krakow are on the short list of places you must visit in 2015 !
Why Krakow? British Airways (ba.com) begins direct flights from Heathrow to Krakow, four times a week from next May, which is also a great opportunity for the British to visit Poland’s second largest city whose splendid market square, its barbican and castle, its wonderful array of synagogues in Kazimierz district and historic churches, and grand city-centre palaces were spared destruction in the Second World War. Among the highlights are The Collegium Maius, where Copernicus studied and which is now home to Chopin’s piano.
