We'd like to honeymoon in a romantic European city but want to avoid clichéd cities like Venice and Florence. Which cities are hot at the moment?

We have lots of suggestions for an edgier Euro-experience!

With the sterling at the weakest its been for a long while, there’s never been a better time to take advantage of England’s capital city: London. There are couple-friendly spots aplenty (the South Bank at twilight, Kew Gardens on a balmy evening, Waterloo Bridge when the sun sets over St. Paul’s) and discreet, chic-Gothic Hazlitts in Soho is the perfect pad for loved-up urbane pairs. Or consider Stockholm in Sweden. It's vibrant yet laid-back and picturesquely scattered over a network of 14 islands on the edge of the Baltic. The inhabitants ooze Nordic hip, and there's a buzzing bar scene, upscale shopping on Biblioteksgatan and antique-hunting opportunities on Södermalm. With plenty of culture to soak up (check out the unexpectedly intriguing Vasa Museum, which houses the world’s only remaining 17th-century ship) and some seductive hotels (such as Berns Hotel, which is set in a renovated movie theater), it’s so cool it's hot.
