Brits can get £30 flights to European hotspot Bill Gates recommended as ideal place for summer holidays

Brits can get £30 flights to European hotspot Bill Gates recommended as ideal place for summer holidays

This European hotspot has been highlighted by Bill Gates as a must-visit holiday destination

Flight tickets from the UK to Bill Gates' recommended European hotspot for the summer holidays can be nabbed for as little as £30.

The Microsoft founder has previously revealed his favourite European destination, and you could get there for an absolute steal.

We know it's only February, but that doesn't mean that it's too early to start dreaming of your summer holidays.

Being on warm beaches, sipping on a cold cocktail, falling asleep in the sun... it's only a few months away, so don't worry! But when you are thinking about these destinations, it's worth considering this one hotspot in particular.

One European country is often overlooked by holiday-goers, with the majority of Brits opting to visit more popular places like Spain, France or Portugal.

Sometimes though, the best holiday destinations are hidden from the wider public and require some extra digging.

Well, this one place has been recommended by the one and only Bill Gates, officially giving it the billionaire seal of approval.

So, where is this promised land I hear you asking?

The country in question is Croatia.

Bill Gates has specifically highlighted the Dalmatian coast town of Skradin as 'his ideal place for summer holidays' to Forbes.

A representative of the Skradin tourist board said: "Gates enjoyed strolling the streets and visiting local restaurants.”

It boasts the Waterfalls of the River Krka and the entrance to the Krka National Park, but this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Croatia as a whole is an incredibly attractive holiday destination that can be overlooked, but we're not quite sure why.

Flights to the city of Dubrovnik in April will cost just £29 from London or Manchester, and the city offers a wealth of activities.

The ancient walls of Dubrovnik are a great tourist attraction to behold if you like exploring.

If you're more about that quiet life, Lokrum Island is easily accessible from the Old Town port, offering natural swimming pools, vibrant wildlife and an escape from all the noise.

You may want to fly to the capital of Zagreb, with flights from just £18, where you can explore the bustling streets boasting beautiful 18th century architecture.

A short trip from Zagreb could take you to the UNESCO World Heritage Plitvice Lake National Park, known for its 16 - yes SIXTEEN - lakes and breathtaking waterfalls.

The other hot destination in Croatia is Split, which also features a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Palace of Diocletian.

All three of these destinations have a lot to offer, and provides a less-crowded alternative to what you may have been planning for the summer.

So, why not consider Croatia this year?
