The Best Sunsets In Europe

When we first started our journey, we made a promise to the universe. A promise that no matter what, we’d always chase and live in the sunshine. Why? Because we feel that the sun is part of or being. Whenever it is shinning, we smile and receive all its energy, and when it’s hidden behind the clouds, we keep hoping that it will shine the next day, because it will!

One of the most exciting moments in life is that one when the sun is fading on the horizon, irradiating positive energy, painting the skies with the most warming tones and showing that life is to be appreciated until the last second. If you relate to this, you probably know that feeling when the day is coming to an end, and you try to find a peaceful place, with an astonishing view, drinking a bottle of wine or just having an intense connection with your loved ones while waiting for that magical moment. Isn’t it amazing?

We are true sunset lovers and one of the things we like the most is to watch a different sunset in each country/city we visit, and we found diversity while experience different sunsets in different places. Just like people, every sunset is unique, and we want to share with you our 5 favourite sunsets in Europe (with no specific order), showing how this beauty of nature can be so unique.

Orange tones in Venice

It’s known that everybody loves to go to Piazzale San Marco to watch the sunset and see the skies turn orange while admiring that wonderful surrounding architectonic. But do you know that you can experience something even more special than this? We found a beautiful hidden gem where the river canals meet the sea and the sun fades through that sky line touching the water. We sat down on the platform, swinging our feet over the water and enjoyed its magical tones appearing in the sky. Venice has one of the most beautiful sunsets due to the colours, bright and warm stunning orange tones that create a magical atmosphere. On the beginning of Ponte delle Guglie turn right and walk until the end of the street, sit down and enjoy the show.

Enchanted transformation in Budapest

The Hungarian capital it’s a wonderful fairy tale scenario, with mesmerizing buildings, big bridges and amazing alternative styles decorating the city. After you explore its wonders and as the golden hour it’s approaching, Citadella and Géllert hill are the places to go. While you walk to reach the top, you will find several viewpoints, where you can get the most breathtaking view over the city. What’s peculiar about the Budapest sunset it’s the enchanted transformation you can presence when the sun fades and the city turns on the lights. You will feel amazed with the scenery, the bridges lightening up and the city illuminating the sky, what a beautiful moment!

The mountain scenery of Salzburg

Once you are in Salzburg, you don’t need to look further to get a spectacular view. The city is built in the middle of the mountains, so you can feel that when the moment comes, it’s going to be epic! We wanted to have a full view to the city and the surrounding landscape, so we walked along the river and sat down on the Mullnersteg bridge. What we loved about this sunset was the mountains background, a spectacular nature landscape on the horizon and the moody skies completing the scenery.

Mysticism in Bled

We fell in love with the wonderful nature vibes in Lake Bled, since the sunrise until the sunset. Just picture this with us: a beautiful pool with a view to the mountains, that fresh and pure breeze evolving us, the birds singing and that mystical vibe around, this was the perfect setting for an unforgettable sunset. We can say that this was such a special moment due to the mysticism of the combination between the purple tones of the sunset and the landscape surrounding us.

Florence and its breathtaking view

From all the city sunsets, Florence is our favourite one so far. Why!? Because it has the most amazing view, atmosphere and delightful orange and red tones! The most iconic place to see it is Piazzale Michelangelo, a square with a panoramic view over the city. Everyone brings their bottle of wine and sits down on the stairway, appreciating the sun going down. The birds flying on the horizon, the traditional music being played on a classical guitar and violin and the warmest of the oranges painting the sky, set the perfect scene for a perfect sunset, where you will feel loved, blessed and truly alive.

All these moments were proof that the finals can be beautiful, powerful, and bring better days. So when something is over, just smile and get ready for what will come!
