Besides the architecture, food, festivals, music, nature and everything else that Europe offers to a tourist, one of the things that you really need to cross off of your bucket list is visiting an European garden.

Royal or botanical, Europe has hundreds of gardens proving that garden-making is a unique form of art and it allows visitors to be more in touch with history and nature at the same time. Even though there are many worth seeing, some are definitely standing out from the crowd and you should visit at least one of these gardens if you can.
