Overtourism has plagued some European cities for a while now - but here are lesser-known cities to check out if you want to skip the crowds.

Normally these tourist-heavy destinations are either capital cities that act as the hub for a country, or they have a multitude of historical, architectural or culturally significant attractions. While these cities are still important spots to visit, unfortunately the whole world thinks so too - contributing to hiked-up prices, overcrowding and unsustainable tourism practices.

But sometimes the most ethical travel involves taking a train or bus outside of these hot spots and exploring other cities of a country that generally get overlooked - even though they offer similar attractions to their bigger siblings.

So skip the crowds and check these alternatives for your next European holiday.
