If you ask people who like to travel quite often, only a few will tell you that hidden places and small villages are on their radar. Most travelers concentrate on large or slightly smaller cities that can offer them a large number of landscapes, a variety in accomodation choices and a satisfactory nightlife with many restaurants to choose from. That’s quite understandable for people who haven’t traveled to many countries, since everyone starts from the basic stuff.
