Top Ten Most Beautiful Capital Cities In Europe

The Top Ten

1 Paris Paris is the capital and most populous city of France, with an area of 105 square kilometres and an official estimated population of 2,140,526 residents as of 1 January 2019. Since the 17th century, Paris has been one of Europe's major centres of finance, diplomacy, commerce, fashion, science, and the more.

Splendid city, architectures from ages to modern building, among the most numerous cathedrals and Churches, abundance of all kinds of restaurants offering top international cuisine and of course French one.

So many theaters, exhibitions, festivals etc... And that also through the country France. :-))

None of the other capitals throughout the world can be compared to Paris. No one is so beautiful, romantic, has such an excellent food and such a strong history that can be reflected by every of its monuments! Paris is definitely the best city.

For people who are complaining about graffiti it's just part of urban art, Paris take a turn to the future, and street and urban arts have to be considered as arts.

And the most underrated city because the best European one with London of course, are so different but 1st ex-aequo.

I've been to Paris several times, and just walking around the streets and admiring the beautiful architectural wonders would do the job! Wonderful city! And I cannot get enough of DisneyLand.

BY FAR the most underrated city in the entire world. Because people visit just 0.5% of this worldly capital city.

Without any doubt the best with London.
So many different monuments to visit, famous avenues and shops, restaurants from lots of different countries, the Seine, theaters, exhibitions, entertainments etc... Etc...

2 London London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south eastern part of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia.

We say London is the 6th French city (Mayor Boris Johnson)...

Yes, because London is a real attractive city and also a so beautiful one.

My heart beats for Paris & London or London & Paris..

Love London spent a lot of time traveling there as main source of transport to get any where in south england slept on the streets when had to wait till next day always felt safe great city

Best city, better visit Big Ben, The Shard, Bukingham Palace, London Eye, such a brilliant city.

London is overrated, Paris, Luxembourg and Vienna are better in my opinion.

3 Madrid

Stunning architecture, vibrant life day and night, world class museums like El Prado, Retiro Park, excellent food, affordable, friendly people, modern and classic, people people and people, great shopping... Its different to any other capital in Europe, elegant and Cosmopolitan but with the spanish essence. MUST visit.

Madrid is a great city, much more beautiful tan others listed above

My favourite city in Europe! I just love the energy of this vibrant and cosmopolitan city! There is an impressive arquitecture and such friendly people! Food is absolutely amazing! The feeling of this city is very different from other capitals in Europe! Oh and it has the best nightlife!


4 Rome

Rome is simply the most beautiful city in the world. History, art and architecture at every step. 2700 years of continuous history. Architectural model over the centuries. Class!

Beautiful, breathtaking sights. A walking museum of artistic and historical attraction. That's about it though, deep historical and cultural roots, but pretty much everything else is shallow.

By far one of the most overrated city in the entire world, best is NYC.

The true capital of the world. It's unique.

5 Vienna

Best in Europe!

Great Quality of life,high Standard for reasonable Price,beautiful Center and nice winyards in western Districts of City:

Vienna is by far the cleanest, friendliest, Englishspeaking, charming, upscale historical imperial modern capital of the world. As a worldtraveller, I ve been to a lot of places, but Vienna is unique in many levels. Its save not too expensive, traditional preserved on one side o the Danube, skyscrapers on the other. No wonder its been voted Nr.1 to live in the world for 3 years in a row.
Vienniese people are classy, well dressed sophisticated and heartwarming. It is also on e of the cities with the most entertainment and diversity. Its very green and in my opinion the best public transportation in Europe

6 Berlin

Berlin for sure

Best beutfull capital in Europe

It's better than Rome,Paris and London.

When the Humboldt Forum is completed next year, the Lustgarten and Museuminsel are will be a phenomenal experience. It's pretty sublime already.

7 Stockholm Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and the most populous urban area in the Nordic countries; 962,154 people live in the municipality, approximately 1.5 million in the urban area, and 2.3 million in the metropolitan area.

Europe's most beautiful and underrated city.

One of the 10 most beautiful capitals of Europe, period!

Most beautiful

Stockholm is very Beautiful (especially in the Winter), ok sized and simply great city.

8 Brussels Brussels, officially the Brussels-Capital Region, is a region of Belgium comprising 19 municipalities, including the City of Brussels, which is the capital of Belgium.

Brussel is a hell hole.

No, Brussels is THE capital of Europe chosen for its bright beauty.

The best city in the world. Friendly folks

Beautiful! Interesting and very clean. The people are friendly and openminded. So many small pubs an cafes

9 Oslo
10 Budapest

I think it should be among the best three cities, as for me it is the top one, because it has something apart from the others! The people, the friendly people as when I visit a country where I am willing to spend and relax at least I should expect in return a smiling faces, this you can find in Budapest and Hungry

Very historical city and people are so nice

It feels charmy like no other place. It's definitely got a soul and the people are very warm.

Budapest should be in Top 10! I have been there once, everything is so ancient and vintage there, all the streets stays in the style of the 1900s, all the buildings were so beautiful, it's a peacceful city, althrough the economy is not that good in Hungary.

The Contenders

11 Amsterdam

The wonderful peaceful atmosphere walking along the streets and enjoying the beautiful historic buildings and canals. - Just love it.

Pure joy to visit

12 Moscow

London, Brussels, Berlin, Paris, and Moscow.

Lived in berlin, london, paris, moscow and madrid. Moscow was excellent and the best. The rest was just acceptable, a lot of visual pollution.

Beautiful and big city

A largest city in Europe, very beautiful.

13 Bucharest

It is a beautiful, big city, you have a lot to visit and there are many places to discover. I stayed here for a week and I couldn't even see 10% of the objectives. A nice place to spend time with friends or family.

Everyone should visit the Count Dracula memorial duck pond.

Bucharest is the best city! It has places that you can visit, beautiful museums if you are passionate about the Romanian culture. Also, when you want to go to eat / drink something, nothing is more expensive than 30 ron. OK, it may have the communist athmosphere because of its buildings, but I ensure you, if you are ever going to go to Bucharest, you won't regret.

The biggest mistake people make when they think about an European city, they expect old parisian or londonese type of buildings. Bucharest is not like any other capital in Europe. It is a Cosmopolitan city that combines a big variety of architectural sights - from neo-classicism and interbelic structures to communist and modern buildings. And unlike some other cities like Oslo, Rome or Bern, it is actually a fun place to live. There is always something to do both day and night time.

14 Edinburgh
15 Lisbon Lisbon is the capital and the largest city of Portugal, with an estimated population of 552,700 within its administrative limits in an area of 100.05 km².

Safe, beautiful, full of culture and great places for hang out. Joy! Going back for sure.

Atlantic, Sunny, Warm, Safe, Old and so, so Beautiful.

The jewel of the Atlantic, the San Francisco of Europe, older than Rome.

The hot spot just in the corner of Europe. Warm, sexy and beautiful. A must visit city.

16 Prague

I do not know about Paris but Prague is far more beautiful than London, London is so overrated.

Living museum of architecture!

Prague is far more beautiful than Paris, I have been to both and found Prague far more beautiful

It's so underrated, I actually live there and it's amazing, people are really nice too if you take the time to know them!

17 Athens

Amazing city. Loved every single corner. So different. So urban style.

Amazing city... Love every moment there...

Coolest city on the planet

Loved it! So much history.

18 Copenhagen Copenhagen is the capital of the Kingdom of Denmark. At a population of 591,481 inhabitants as of January 2016, it is also the largest city in the country. It is located in the Hovedstaden region of Denmark and is home to the world famous Tivoli Gardens, one of the oldest operating amusement parks in more.

Belgrade should be in Top 5!

23 Kiev

The history of this city is amazing!

I was there. Better than Paris.

24 Ljubljana

Cause it's beautiful


In my opinion Ljubljana is a beautiful capital city of a beautiful country (Slovenia - for those who didn't know). It is quite underrated, and can be described as a mix of the best of Italian, Viennese and South Slavic architecture.

25 Chisinau Chișinău, also known as Kishinev, also referred to as Kishineu, is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Moldova.
