I’m sure most of you will automatically consider visiting the Eiffel Tower when taking a trip to France, the Colosseum in Rome or the Kremlin in Russia, but there are other locations in Europe with sites you should visit. In fact, a Reddit user recent compiled a map of suggestions based on the results when you Google ‘what to see in’ various countries.
So what are the other main attractions to visit across Europe?
- In Iceland, stop by the geothermal spar, the Blue Lagoon, which is located in a lava field
- Belgium’s Grand Place – the central square of Brussels – is certainly a must see for any visitors
- If you’re travelling to Albania, why not stop by the Albanian Riviera, a coastal area in the County of Vlorë, running along the Ionian Sea under the Ceraunian Mountains
- Castles and palaces feature quite heavily on the map, including Vaduz Castle in Liechtenstein and Peles Castle in Romania
- If you’re an outdoors-kind of person, the Tivoli Gardens in Denmark or the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia are worth a visit
- The Neutrality Monument in Turkmenistan – built to commemorate the country’s official position of neutrality – is well worth a stop.
Contracting in Europe
While each of these attractions have their appeal, anyone contracting in Europe for contracting opportunities must remember that they aren’t just travelling to see the sites and there are numerous tax and employment laws that need to be considered. And given the Brexit vote, these requirements across the continent could soon change.
That’s not to say of course that once Article 50 is triggered, opportunities in Europe will vanish overnight. There will always be a need for specialist contracting staff across Europe, but it’s highly likely that there will be a change in processes, including tax payments. It’s for this reason that it’s vital to speak to an expert to ensure you remain compliant as any revisions come into effect.
