I personally really like the unlike.net city guides. They're mostly on venues, but still worth a visit. There's guides on Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, Ibiza, London, Miami, Paris, Sao Paulo, Shanghai, South Africa, and Vienna. I just wished their iPhone app wasn't that pricy...

I'm living in Pristina right now, capital of Kosovo. I think it's a great city, very small and seems very safe. I have photos and some info on the place on my blog, I'll be putting up more as the time goes by. For any specific questions about Kosovo PM me.

Its probably a good idea for you to do a bit of research before you travel anywhere. You need to know what you should/shouldn't do and its always good to get a bit of knowledge before you arrive.
I personally quite like doing tours but obviously it depends how good your guide is!

When visiting Sarajevo suggest Free Sarajevo Walking Tours. Its great thing to do for a quick rundown of all Sarajevo has to offer on journey from the Ottoman Empire to the Austro-Hungarian to the war period(92-95) till now (architectural and historical facts).

There are many site that can tell you about hotels in Europe but it would be helpful if you could specify the country in which you are interested.

Definitely look at http://www.inyourpocket.com. It's a fantastic guide book with hilariously honest reviews of restaurants/bars/clubs/cafes/museums/monuments/hostels/hotels/b&bs...everything you could possibly think of! Prices are included and it's nice to have an honest review for once... It also contains a ton of history on the city itself and also districts/areas within the city. You can access it online for various countries/cities. Once in the city itself, you can pick one up a tourist office for a small price, but I found that the majority of the hostels I stayed in had copies laying around for free. Cannot recommend enough!

I usually prefer the free/cheap things. So I generally use wikipedia to read about the cities I will visit. But, sometimes, if the city is big and I don't have much time there, I take a paper guide. My favorite is Top 10 (Eyewitness Travel) - a guide by DK Publishing. It has top 10 places to see, restaurants, budget restaurants, local maps and many other info about the cities. It gives a lot of insights like local & not so touristic restaurants.

A very useful thread I don't see in other forums.
Keep it up !!

During my last Europe trip, I joined a Berlin free city tour(you just tip the guide at the end) as soon as I arrive and I visit the other places on my own after that.

If you are traveling solo, you may feel lonely after sometime, joining such half day or full day free group tours is a good break.

Prague gets a bad rap for being too touristy and Disneyland-ish. This is such a shame. There is still a cool Prague out there and one that is open to travelers who want to experience another side of the city. If you're the kind of traveler who wants to get off the beaten path in a city that's already been "discovered," then check out this alternative guide to Prague:

I actually don't like guides.. I like to investigate the city by myself, don't like when somebody's hurring up me..
