This wouldn’t be a list of the best holidays for couples in Europe without mentioning Banská Štiavnica. This charming Slovakian town is truly one of the continent’s hidden gems, particularly noteworthy for its medieval buildings and ‘love bank’: a museum entirely dedicated to lovers, and created based on the world’s longest love poem! Nominated for ‘European Museum of the Year 2021’, you can be confident you’re in for an exceptional time when you book a visit here. Since 1993, the town and its surroundings are proclaimed by the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site

Head to ‘the only love vault in the world’ within Slovakia’s LOVE BANK: a museum made to commemorate the longest love poem in the world, MARÍNA. See the original manuscript up close, walk under the ‘sky of love’ and pass through the LOVE VAULT, where you can leave your own romantic notes, musings and letters. (You can even try and write the new longest love poem, if you’d like, though we wouldn’t recommend it. MARÍNA is 2,900 verses long!)
