October is one of the most beautiful months of autumn. There is neither the summer heat that we can't get over in September nor the winter cold that will show itself in the winter with the beginning of November... For some reason, the ideal month for me is October.
I have summarized the most beautiful routes you can go in October in my opinion. While I was in these cities, I told you about the nearby towns in the country.

1- Berlin (Germany)

Berlin, one of the most important historical and art centers in Europe, is one of the cities that I like very much, especially with its art galleries, museums, parks, and nightlife.

In Berlin, which became the center of art and culture with the collapse of the Berlin wall, directed by many names such as Hitler and Einstein; The Parliament Building, Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Wall Monument, and Berlin Cathedral are the most important places you should see. In addition, there will be other places you will see, such as the Berliner Dom, Museum Island, and Potsdamer Platz square.

By the way, while you are in Germany, you can also go to Munich and experience the October Fest, one of the most famous festivals in the world. The festival, which started on September 18, ends on November 4. Especially beer lovers, I would say to attend this festival.

2) Prague (Czechia)

While walking the streets of Prague, it is impossible not to feel like you are living in the medieval period. Prague is one of my favorite cities for some reason. Especially its bridges, historical quarters, and squares are incredibly beautiful and well-maintained.

3) Bled (Slovenia)

Autumn is the best time to get lost in nature. During this period, it is the right time for Lake Bled, which is one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe.

The city of Bled in Slovenia is famous for its lake. After wandering around the river for a few hours and seeing the castles on the hill; a wonderful lake and St. It is incredibly enjoyable to visit all the hills for the view of St. Martin's Church.

Anyway, getting lost in nature should be a priority rather than a place to visit here. If you have time, I would say spend a day in Ljubljana, one of the lovely capitals of Europe.

4) Bucharest (Romania)

I saw one of the top 5 most beautiful parks and nightclubs in Bucharest in many cities I have seen.

I would say don't walk around the lake in Herastrau Park for hours, get lost in Strada Lipscani street in the old town in the city center, and go back without having fun at the Bamboo club in the evenings.

Although the city is not very expensive, especially taxis are quite cheap. Finally, one should not leave without seeing the Parliament building, which was built during the Ceauşescu Regime and is the second largest building in the world after the Pentagon.

5. Goa (India)

Goa, the city I liked the most on my trip to India and where I felt peaceful, is one of the most interesting places on the coast of the Indian Ocean, where you can walk under palm trees, and where you will be surprised to see cows strolling on the beach, one of the most important religious values ​​of Hindu culture.

Not only with its coast but also the small villages, rivers, rivers, and temples in the vicinity will most likely fascinate you. If you want to explore Goa, either rent a motorbike or private guided vehicles. Rest assured you won't regret it. You can also charter one of the boats on the coast of Goa and sail to the islands where you can see dolphins, especially in the morning.

6) Cappadocia (Turkiye)

Cappadocia is very beautiful, especially in October. The humid and suffocating taste of that hot air in summer is replaced by cool air with the arrival of autumn.

During this period when the weather gets a little cooler, visit the wonderful regions created by the Fairy Chimneys in the Ürgüp, Uçhisar, and Göreme regions and witness the breathtaking landscapes, especially at sunrise or sunset. Also, do not leave without visiting the potters, tasting the Urgup wines, and eating the jug kebab. Finally, Ihlara Valley, which is about 1 hour away, is one of the must-see places.

7) Kyoto (Japan)

Kyoto is a magnificent city, as they say. It was necessary to go to this city not in summer, but especially in spring and autumn. The parks where you will see every shade of red and orange, the zen gardens, and astonishing Shinto shrines that have been thought through to the finest detail will make you get lost even in your imagination.

If you have the opportunity, you should see this city during the period from mid-October to mid-November. While you're here, don't forget to stop by the cities of Osaka-Kobe and Nara.

8) Piedmont (Italy)

Truffles, pecans, and chocolate give their festivities at this time of year. And of course the vintages. In addition to its extraordinary autumn scenery, Piermont is a region worth seeing with its wine and food culture right next to the Alps in Northern Italy.

9) Lugano (Switzerland)

Your eyes will see the most beautiful picturesque views of autumn in Lugano, located on the edge of Lake Lugano, in the south of the Alps on the border with Italy. Considering the cold weather, we recommend you visit it in the first weeks of October. While you are there, you can attend the Autumn Festival and taste folkloric music, grapes, and fine wines.

10) Douro River Valley (Portugal)

Portugal's Douro River Valley transforms into a sea of ​​red, orange, and vibrant yellow in autumn.

Rows of vineyards line the river and prepare for winter. It is an ideal region for food and wine in autumn. Although Portugal is not the first wine country to come to mind in the world, Douro Valley wines are worth a try.
