Top ideas for a short trip in 2022 – discover the world with MrShuttle.

When planning a more extended holiday trip or a short break in the remaining months, most people wonder what form of a trip to choose. Everything depends on a variety of factors which influence the place of departure and the time spent there.

To begin with, it should be noted that every trip – regardless of where and for how long – is unique in its own way. This form of rest, longer or shorter, allows us to forget about daily matters and familiarise ourselves with our chosen place. It is also worth mentioning that short trips are usually planned spontaneously, and we can easily organise them multiple times throughout the year.

UK Bank Holiday - plane you travel

Longer trip or short holiday?

If you have had a tough week and there are a few days off on the horizon – it is worth considering a little relaxation. Especially if you feel exhausted and want to escape from your stresses and worries for a while before the following week, it is not true that you have to wait until the summer season to be able to unwind a little. Short trips over the weekend or those associated with a public holiday are becoming increasingly popular. Why? Check out the advantages of short breaks and see what you can do during this time!

It is safe to say that the vast majority of us travel once or twice a year at the most – usually during the winter holidays and summer holidays. However, if you feel that you need a break, you might want to take a trip for just a few days. The long weekends in 2022 are not only an opportunity for a long holiday, but also a chance to extend your holiday without taking extra days off, or less of them.

MrShuttle has put together some suggestions that not only align with your weekend plans but also include a “UK Bank Holiday” perspective. Extend your weekend and visit exciting places with us.

  • Barcelona (Spain)   UK Bank Holiday - explore Barcelona
    While preparing a ranking of the most stunning cities in Europe, we didn’t even think for a second to omit Barcelona. This Catalan city has a lot of charm and tourist attractions, so you have to visit it at least once in your life. Whoever decides to do it will not forget the time spent in this unique place for a long time.Barcelona is one of the most original cities in Europe due to the presence of buildings designed by the famous Art Nouveau architect Antonio Gaudi. All his works are characterized by wavy lines, rich colours, parabolic arches and intricate sculptural ornamentation.   

    Among the greatest monuments of Barcelona is the Sagrada Familia church, which is considered to be Gaudi’s most important work. Its construction began in 1882 and interestingly enough, it has not been finished yet. Fans of the architect’s style should also see the Casa Milà, Casa Batlló and Casa Vicens buildings, as well as the Parc Güell full of fantastic structures and the Güell Palace built in the style of Catalan modernism. It’s also worth taking a walk down the famous La Rambla street and strolling up Montjuïc hill. This is the best chance to use UK bank holidays in the most attractive way.

  • Kraków (Poland)UK Bank Holiday - maybe Krakow?
    Another extremely much-loved place by tourists is Krakow. This charming city is considered the most beautiful urban centre and an excellent exploration base. Beautiful monuments, which are traces of ancient history, attract tourists worldwide. Krakow lies in the country’s south, at the crossroads of important rail and road routes. Therefore, it is impossible not to get here from any corner of the country, and even from abroad, thanks to the International Airport in Balice.The unique atmosphere of Krakow attracts like a magnet, especially felt in the cosmopolitan Krakow Market Square and the backstreets much less frequently visited. Perhaps they determine the uniqueness of this place. Therefore, many tourists return here countless times, and each time they discover something new, something beautiful. Krakow is primarily a city of young people, and they create this unusual atmosphere here. Moreover, it is the centre of culture and entertainment.Krakow is a piece of Polish history, the seat of Polish rulers, and their necropolis, a symbol of Polish culture and tradition. Important events for Poles have taken place here for centuries. The most important buildings on this hill are the Royal Castle. The beautiful Old Town in Krakow is filled with numerous bars to eat local dishes to feel Polishness through the culinary experience. There is Wieliczka Salt Mine or Memorial and Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau not far from Krakow.
  • Lisbon (Portugal)UK Bank Holiday - sightseeing Lisbon on bicycle
    The Portuguese capital is the perfect place for picturesque streets, atmospheric restaurants, fine cuisine, and excellent wine lovers. In the heart of Alfama and Mouraria districts, nostalgic and reflective fado music resounds every night, making Lisbon a melancholy city and prompting visitors to reverie.The biggest attractions of Lisbon are the Hieronymite Monastery and located nearby on the banks of the Tagus, the fortress Torre de Belém and the Monument of Discovery. In the heart of the old town is a Moorish castle of St. George, where there is a beautiful view of the old part of the city, Praça de D. Pedro IV (called Rossio), the historic Santa Justa elevator, the ruins of the Carmelite monastery and the Sé Cathedral.Take a walk down the city’s most famous street, Rua Augusta, which leads from the Triumphal Arch on Praça do Comércio to Rossio. In the evening, be sure to dine at a casa de fado to listen to music that captures the spirit of the Portuguese like no other.
