1). Venice, Italy
Known as the city of bridges; with tourism of 20 million people a year, it may be shocking for you to discover that this city is sadly, leading to a decadence.
Rising sea-levels are threating this beautiful, historic city. So if Venice is on your bucket list, read on because we gathered some attraction recommendations for you, along with a little background of this city.
Venice was actually the central core of European glass-making! & while it's no longer the epicenter of glass-making it's still practiced today by many defendants. Here's a cool historical fact: Leonardo da Vinci visited Burano, a small island northeast of Venice, in 1481.

Olympia was never a city, although it's referred to as "the city which gave birth to the Olympic games", it is actually a sanctuary, where only the most prestigious athletes were allowed to compete.

Plagued by drought, Olympia is in danger of deadly wild-fires that can potentially destroy the ancient, historical ruins.

5). Brussels, Belgium
Home of opera, ballet, theaters and stage music; Brussels is interesting because of the mix of Dutch and French language locals speak. In fact it's said the style of this capital is similar to the style of Parisians.
Why it's in danger: Natural ecosystems are deteriorating due to coastal erosion and because of global warming, Brussels is now prone to flooding during storms.
