It’s August and pretty much all of Europe is on vacation. From beach resorts to mountain peaks and cultural destinations, Europe has so much to offer.
But there are a handful of destinations that are truly special and which everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. And some of these amazing destinations are best to experience as a child, together with the family and loved ones.
At FatherMag.com, they decided to create the first travel bucket list destinations for children and families. They turned to online reviews to rank the best 50 family-friendly destinations in Europe based on their average rating and number of votes, as consistent high scores is a great indication of quality.
They ranked over 250 destinations that kids and families love such as amusement parks and theme parks, aqua parks, beaches, zoos and aquariums, kids museums, and national parks.
The rankings are a weighted average score based on the average Google rating and number of reviews for each destination. High ratings on Google are given more weight, so, for example, a destination with an average rating of 4.9 and 30,000 reviews will score higher than a destination with 4.5 average rank and 40,000 reviews.
Plitvice National Park ranked as Europe's 4th best destination for families, while Krka National Park ranked 22nd.
