The luxury travel magazine "Condé Nast", which has been around since 1986, published a list of 50 most beautiful small towns around the world.

The list, which was made by the editors of the magazine, includes towns from different parts of the world – from Canada to Japan.

"You can chalk it up to the welcoming locals, the hotels, or good old-fashioned charm, but we'll never tire of small-town travel." Almost every country in the world has a small town worth exploring – from historic villages in Japan to desert oases in Egypt. "Without a doubt, these are the most beautiful small towns in the world," the article said.

According to them, it is the most beautiful town in the world Albarracin in Spain. It is located in the province of Teruel, and according to the 2018 census it has 1.016 inhabitants.

"This isolated mountain town along the Guadalaviar River is a prime contender for the title of Spain's prettiest small town, with pink and orange buildings that blend seamlessly into the rocky surroundings. The place is particularly unique because of its history of Muslim and Christian rule. "Where else can you find Gothic cathedrals and Moorish ruins in the same small town," the description reads.

The red rocks that surround the town make it a popular place for climbing and hiking.

As far as the Balkan towns are concerned, the Slovenian city of Bled is rightfully on the list.

"There is a reason why Lake Bled is one of the most popular places in Slovenia. With its emerald water, small islet with churches, views of the Alps and a 12th-century castle on a hill, you won't be short of perfect views. The surrounding town of Bled is just as charming," Condé Nast's editors write about Bled.
