According to the team, Bratislava is the world’s most “scenic” destination for a road trip this summer.
The Slovakian capital sits along the Danube river, in the shadow of the Little Carpathian mountains.
A spokesperson from the team said: “The city is a perfect destination for travellers. From rows of picturesque dollhouse-like homes and storefronts in Bratislava’s Old Town district to the iconic Blue Church in Northeast Bratislava.”
The team recommend travellers take a drive to the historic Devin Castle, a mere 13km from the capital city.
Tourists will need to ditch the car to explore Bratislava’s pretty Old Town, which is pedestrian only.
Rovaniemi in Finland took second place, but the capital of Lapland would only be suitable for confident drivers due to snowy conditions.
The home of Santa Claus, Rovaniemi is a great destination for families and offers uniquely incredible views.
Confident drivers could even hit the road at night to catch a viewing of the Northern Lights setting the skies on fire.
Outside of Europe, Victoria, the small and pretty capital city of the Seychelles Islands took the top spot.
Tourists can also easily explore the city on foot and check out the fresh produce at Sir Selwyn Clarke Market.
Slovenia’s pretty capital city, Ljubljana, took fourth place on the list and could be combined with a road trip to Lake Bled.
The stunning Lake with its castle is just a 45-minute drive from the Slovenian capital and the perfect spot to relax.
Tourists could also stop at the Skofja Loka Castle and Museum, a restored 1200s fortress, situated midway between the lake and city.
Britons looking for a longer summer adventure could combine Bratislava and Ljubljana, which are just four and a half hours drive from each other.
On the way, tourists could stop in the southern Austrian city of Graz or even take a small detour to Vienna.
Tourists could then choose to head to Italy or Croatia to continue their road trip adventure after Slovenia.
