Bratislava, Slovakia Dubbed Partyslava by its residents for its vibrant nightlife, Bratislava has also been called the next Prague. Make the most of its lack of notoriety while it lasts as this city is set to become a tourist hotspot in the near future. The reason for Bratislava's increasing popularity is its reputation for safety and the fact that it remains reasonably cheap. Take the opportunity to visit one of the many pastel-coloured palaces, once home to European nobility, and take in the gothic architecture and historical monuments. Visit the Slovak National Theatre for world class ballet and opera performances, and revisit Bratislava's past with a tour of the castle. The city also has more than 20 galleries showcasing ancient and modern art. Whether it's culture and relaxation, or dining out and nightlife that you want from a city break, Bratislava really does have it all.
Amman, Jordan The capital of Jordan, Amman, is a diverse city, neither a bustling metropolis nor entirely stuck in the past. Evidence of ancient civilisations juxtaposed with modern city life are all part of its appeal to tourists. West Amman is the modern part of the city, where tourists can sample the nightlife at its lively bars and nightclubs. Restaurants offer traditional Middle Eastern cuisine alongside Western style food. If you want to immerse yourself in history, visit the Roman Amphitheatre in Amman (pictured). Jordan Valley is a short distance from the city for the more active and adventurous. Five star hotels and resorts are starting to spring up: Le Royal Hotel Amman comes highly recommended, while InterContinental Amman is a popular choice among foreign professionals.
Antwerp, Belgium (pictured) Known as `The Diamond City', Antwerp is a fashion-conscious city and the centre of the diamond industry. It is little wonder then that this stylish metropolis is gradually gaining a reputation in fashionable circles. Antwerp's fashion centre, ModeNatie, is also the location of the Flanders Fashion Institute and the Antwerp Fashion Academy. Fashion historians should visit The Mode Museum, dedicated to fashion design. But the city's history makes it more than just a shopper's paradise; architecture, museums and galleries abound, celebrating the world-famous masters Rubens and Van Dyck. In the evening, wine and dine at buzzing restaurants, bars and clubs.
