Travel with Style on your Valentine's Getaway Abroad!

Getaways for couples are more than just to visit the place and crossing it out on your bucket list it is the experience of being there. There is more reason to travel and surprise your loved one with a romantic Valentine getaway. What to pack? That's the biggest challenge.

Krakow, Poland 
If Krakow isn’t already on your list, it should be now. Flights to this city aren’t too pricey either, so it makes the perfect getaway for the most romantic day of the year while sticking to a budget!

Just like some of our other top picks, this city strikes a balance between historic culture and modern entertainment it an ideal last-minute getaway. From partying in the main square to visiting castles and cathedrals, make sure you have enough time to explore everything.

The weather over Valentine’s weekend is set to have highs of 3°C and lows of -7°C, although it’s set to be quite sunny which is perfect for those day-time adventures. For roaming around central with your loved one, fit in with the locals by wearing bright tones!

The evening is where the party is at and is your chance to rock what you feel most comfortable in. But for Valentine’s Day date night itself, be the star of the show with a chic dress and matching jacket!

Plovdiv, Bulgaria
Bulgaria is becoming a more popular destination with young Brits, and there’s plenty to do in Plovdiv. Dubbed as an exclusive city after being built around seven hills, you’ll be thrown deep into the historic culture that comes with visiting this city.

Perfect for couples that love exploring and learning, you could take a trip to see one of the world’s most intact ancient theatres (which is still in use 2,000 years later), or even the aviation museum that’s a hit with locals and especially tourists!

For Valentine’s weekend, the temperature will stay at around 3°C but could go right down to -8°C. When it comes packing for this destination, you need to pack something that keeps you warm but is super practical for walking — as you’ll do plenty here! Think about thermal waterproof jackets, boots, and gloves.

There’s a few old-fashioned restaurants and bars in this city, and you don’t need to dress up to the nines if you don’t want to. Go for something subtle like a roll-neck jumper, jeans, and some flat trainers. Take a backpack to keep your belongings in and a jacket for when you get cold walking back to your hotel. Always remember to pack light with your essentials when traveling.

Riga, Latvia 
Romance in Riga is something that we’re all after, so book those flights and schedule those holidays in at work — especially if you want to indulge in the art nouveau architecture that this city offers.

There’s nothing that you can’t do in this capital city with your travel companion. Whether you’re into cars and want to visit the Riga Motormuseum or take a swift stroll through Central Market, you’re really spoilt for choice with this location. But what should you wear?

If you’re visiting over Valentine’s weekend, temperatures are expected to be at highs of 2°C but lows of -6°C, there is always a need to be prepared for all types of circumstances. For dreamy walks through Old City opt for toasty attire such as woolly jumpers, hats, scarves, and gloves! For photograph souvenir, your outfit will stand out wearing darker color suits when posing in front of the bright buildings. 

When it comes to evening wear though, you best pull out one of your most glamorous Maxi Dresses because Riga’s dining scene is world-class. Whether you’re looking for the best local, Italian, Indian or Japanese restaurants — you must look fab and glam. Pair your dress with some chunky heels and wear a faux fur panel jacket to stay and be the trend in fashion and comfort.

Reykjavik, Iceland 
Famous for its beautiful landscapes and cozy city vibes, it’s no wonder that Reykjavik has been described as the ultimate romantic getaway. 

What’s dreamier than cozying up with your other half while you both watch the incredible northern lights? Or taking a relaxing spa day to another level by visiting the Blue Lagoon. There’s no denying that the climate in the Nordic country is extremely different to our own, so what should you wear?

You can expect temperatures between -2°C and 3°C if you visit the city over Valentine’s Day weekend this year, so making room for a warm coat is essential. If you’re planning on going on any excursions such as the northern lights or Golden Circle tour, you should think about packing some thermals as it can get even colder the further you move away from the city center. An extra baggage weight when packing is always to consider. 

When it comes to the evening, there are still opportunities to dress up. Reykjavik has a number of fine-dining restaurants and clubs. Some of the late-night venues have dress codes, so you’ll need to change from your hiking boots and jumpers to a more dressy evening dinner. 

Bruges, Belgium
With its cobbled streets, canals and medieval buildings, a trip to Bruges with your companion this Valentine’s Day will be your most romantic getaway yet. But what’s so special about it?

From attractive restaurants and bars to shopping trips and iconic cultural landmarks, this surprise trip will be extremely hard to top. From visiting the Chocolate Museum to the Brewery, there’s something for all couples to indulge in.

With highs of 6°C and lows of -1°C, this is one of the locations on our list with a warmer climate. When heading for a romantic walk around the city and stopping at cafes, you can keep it casual with a jumper dress or jeans and pumps — again, keep it lively with bright tones!

For evening trips to places like the brewery, you want to dress to impress. Head out formal with heels and a sophisticated dress; for the walk home, you should always take a matching jacket to ensure you always look on point, and never forget to feel warm and cozy and enjoy your way back to your hotel.

Where will you be heading this Valentine’s Day with your special someone? There’s a lot to choose from — but wherever you go, we’re sure it’ll be super romantic and extra special.
