For the culturally-deprived traveler, Europe is always the perfect place to satisfy your needs. Home to some of the world's oldest civilizations, up to this day several European countries have retained the masterpieces made by our renowned artists, sculptors, and painters in the past.

Today, you can tour around Europe and be amazed by the stunning art up for display whether you're an art critic, painter, or just another art-curious individual. Here are some of the best cities in Europe you should go to satisfy your love for art:

Vienna, Austria. The art scene in Vienna is particularly divine, since for a hundred years the brightest artists in the world are drawn and inspired by the beauty of the place, resulting into some of the most famous art masterpieces in the world. "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt is found here, displayed at the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere in the Belvedere Palace. Another must-go museum is the Museum of Applied Arts (MAK), which houses some artworks made all the way from the Middle Ages up to the present day.

London, United Kingdom. London is full of art galleries that will pique every art enthusiast's dream. In the National Gallery, you will see famous works such as Vincent Van Gogh's "Sunflowers; in Tate Modern, you will revel in the works of Picasso and Hockney; and in the Serpentine Gallery, you will be showered by amazing pieces of contemporary to modern art. Make sure to also stop by Saatchi Gallery, where it features some of the most controversial art pieces in the world.

Berlin, Germany. Your imagination will take a stunning whirl in viewing the stunning artwork displayed in several art galleries in Berlin. From big, ostentatious galleries to small, quaint ones, you can go all day visiting every art museum and still wouldn't get enough. Take yourself back to the past at The Gemäldegalerie, where 13th-18th-century European paintings are found; view some stunning photographs in C/O Gallery where up-and-coming artists are breaking their way to the art scene, and Eigen+Art is a fantastic place to view contemporary art from around the world.

Barcelona, Spain. Here in Barcelona you will find Picasso's own museum, the Museu Picasso-which houses the most abundant works of the legendary artist. Aside from that, you can indulge in the most excellent pieces if Romanesque art in Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, and be amazed by the collection found in CaixaForum, where no two visits will be the same. If you want to view some great artworks produced by artists in our time, then head over to galleries like Artevistas.

Paris, France. And of course we shouldn't forget about Paris, home to the royal artists of the world. The Musée du Louvre, the most famous art gallery in the world, houses paintings and art pieces worth million dollars a pop, works by esteemed artists like Da Vinci David, Delacroix and Géricault, and other art treasures you couldn't find anywhere in the world. But there are also other fantastic art galleries here as well. Musée d'Orsay features impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces from 1848 to 1914, and Musée Maillol houses the works by early 20th-century sculptor Aristide Maillol.
