There are a dozen or more well known European cities. What are the hidden gems that you have found a bit off the tourist track?
Asturias and Covadonga convent in Spain and Kamnik Alps in Slovenia are couple of many hidden gems you can try. Happy Travelling

One of the best cities to visit is Cordoba, in it you will find monuments declared of good cultural interest by UNESCO (Mezquita, Medinat Azahara, etc.), good food (salmorejo, flamenquin, paella ..), as well as numerous events and great accommodations .
I indicate a website <snip>where you will find all the information about the opening of the monuments, free audio guides and places to stay. I hope you visit my city, you will surely love it.

Vall Nuria is an amazing place to visit. You can do a day trip there from Barcelona. It has amazing landscapes since it is near the Pyrenees and it's perfect for hiking. I went there with this tour <snip> when I was in Barcelona, and it was so so worth it!

Without a doubt id have to Say Chester in England, wen there years ago with my family, Most beautiful city, incredible culture, well worth a visit, although I havn't written about my trip, as I've only recently started blogging <snip>, adn i might post a bit here, but definitely recommend Chester, its not a huge big city feel, but more of a historic, cultural city, sort of like York.

Lviv in Ukraine is a hidden gem. Best of all for atmosphere
I never would have thought)
Potsdam, a smaller and fancier version of Berlin
We really enjoyed Salamanca in Spain (though it was almost 20yrs ago!). Gyor in Hungary was also a petite surprise, and I'd also back up praise for Budapest as mentioned above.
Gotta be one of the World's prettiest cities from the air then on the ground a revelation that keeps on happening.
With no doubt one of those gems is Murcia in Spain!
