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 arts. Paris is a major railway, highway and air-transport hub served by two international airports: Paris–Charles de Gaulle (the second busiest airport in Europe) and Paris–Orly. Opened in 1900, the city's subway system, the Paris Métro, serves 5.23 million passengers daily.

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.

Certainly one of the most beautiful capital cities in the world.

Paris is a concentrate of so many things from before Roman empire to the modern La Défense which is the largest business district in all of Europe and in term of number of skylines.

Paris (intramural) is more than 16 000 restaurants with international ones about 1 1000 Italian, 680 Japanese, 330 Sushi, 250 Indian, 240 Spanish, 280 Thais, 270 Vietnamese, 150 African, 90 German, 30 British... And so more...

And so, and so...

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...

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.

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. London is one of the world's most important global cities. It exerts considerable influence upon the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transportation

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..

I've been to London a few times, and I've always enjoyed looking at the sites and just exploring and walking about, it's great.

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

Greatest freedom loving friendly metropolis in the world.

3 Madrid Madrid is the capital and most populous city of Spain. The city has almost 3.4 million inhabitants.

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.

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!

Just amazing, Madrid is so elegant, pure and fun. Besides, it is less touristy than other EU capitals.

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

4 Oslo Oslo is the capital and most populous city of Norway. It constitutes both a county and a municipality.

Oslo is easily one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and in the entire world. Norway is a wealthy and developed country so therefore Oslo is a beautiful city. The infrastructure in Oslo is also highly advanced. Oslo is also very safe to the point where crime is super rare. The restaurants in Oslo serve delicious mouthwatering foods. The cold weather and the breathtaking views in the city are also perfect for picture-taking. Oslo is also a perfect city for shopping. Overall, Oslo is simply one of the loveliest cities in the world.

Oslo is an absolute best city. It is one of the safest cities in the world. Norway is also one of the richest countries in the world so therefore crime is unsurprisingly low. Oslo also has beautiful buildings and the city is very clean and green which of course makes it beautiful. Oslo has lots of shopping malls and restaurants that serve delicious foods. The cold climate makes Oslo even more beautiful with all the snow. Overall, Oslo is without a doubt one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and in the world.

In addition to being a gorgeous city, Oslo has one of the best public transportations in the world. Unlike most other public transportations, Oslo's public transportations are properly maintained and kept clean at all times, similar to that of Tokyo. The drivers are also friendly and they know how to drive properly.

Oslo is a truly remarkable city. Its cleanliness and overall safety make it a perfect destination for any tourists to visit. The restaurants serve really delicious food and the buildings are excellent to take pictures. Oslo is without a doubt one of the best cities in the world.

5 Rome Rome is the capital city and a special comune of Italy, as well as the capital of the Lazio region. The city has been a major human settlement for almost three millennia. With 2,860,009 residents in 1,285 km2 (496.1 sq mi), it is also the country's most populated comune. It is the third most populous city in the European Union by population within city limits. It is the centre of the Metropolitan City of Rome, which has a population of 4,355,725 residents, thus making it the most populous metropolitan city in Italy. Its metropolitan area is the third-most populous within Italy. Rome is located in the central-western portion of the Italian Peninsula, within Lazio (Latium), along the shores of the Tiber. Vatican City (the smallest country in the world) is an independent country inside the city boundaries of Rome, the only existing example of a country within a city; for this reason , Rome has sometimes been defined as the capital of two states. more.

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.

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!

Visiying Rome because it is the best city in all the world entire. Roma is the center of the world, it is the most city visted by the tourists in the world. In Roma there are the best restaurants in the world and the best catedrahls, houses, colyseas.

History, monuments, architecture, food, it worths the visit, trust me.

6 Vienna Vienna is the federal capital and largest city of Austria, and one of the nine states of Austria. Vienna is Austria's most populous city, with about 2 million inhabitants (2.6 million within the metropolitan area, nearly one third of the country's population), and its cultural, economic, and political centre. It is the 6th-largest city by population within city limits in the European Union.

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

7 Stockholm Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and the most populous urban area in the Nordic countries. It has the most populous urban area in Sweden as well as in Scandinavia.

Copenhagen is WAY better and more beautiful than Stockholm. Copenhagen is also one of the safest capital cities in the world. Unlike overrated Stockholm that only receives undeserved attention and nothing more. The only attention overrated Stockholm deserves are gargantuan boos, thumbs down, and other forms of jeers.

By far the most tranquil and scenic capitals in the world, and I've been to the majority of of european capitals by the way.
But the paradox is that the more people discover it, the more it will be ruined I suspect. But I've got to be honest, it's hands down the most beautiful capital, perhaps in the world

No way copenhagen is better. Stockholm is Europe's best city. Copenhagen doesn't have an archipelago, no Nobel prize and no nothing
Stockholm's better
Even better than NYC

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

8 Berlin Berlin is the capital and largest city of Germany by both area and population. Its 3.8 million inhabitants make it the European Union's most populous city, according to population within city limits One of Germany's sixteen constituent states, Berlin is surrounded by the State of Brandenburg and contiguous with Potsdam, Brandenburg's capital. Berlin's urban area, which has a population of around 4.5 million, is the second most populous urban area in Germany after the Ruhr. The Berlin-Brandenburg capital region has over six million inhabitants and is Germany's third-largest metropolitan region after the Rhine-Ruhr and Rhine-Main regions

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

Berlin for sure

9 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. Brussels lies in the north-central part of Belgium, about 110 kilometres (68 mi) from the Belgian coast and about 180 km (110 mi) from Belgium's southern tip.

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

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

The best city in the world. Friendly folks

10 Bucharest

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.

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.

Nice city, fun-loving people and also very very cheap!
No wonder it was called little Paris - it does resemble but at 10% of the price. Told city centre is bursting with fun - clubs and party 24/7, amazing dancing girls anywhere.The People's Palace is the second biggest building in the world after Pentagon, lovely parks like Cismigiu and Herastrau, great cuisine, this city has a mix of everything. For sure I'll come back

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.

The Contenders
11 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.

Moscow's historical Kremlin and Red Square is marvellous and a great piece of architecture.No monument can be compared to it.

A largest city in Europe, very beautiful.

Beautiful and big city

12 Amsterdam

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

Pure joy to visit

13 Edinburgh
14 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

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.

As far as lay-out, there is no competition. The way the 7 bridges are crossing Europe's widest river, separating the very chique but flat "Pest" from the hilly and largely historical "Buda"... it is photographer's heaven, the "Gisele" of cities.

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

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.

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

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

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

16 Prague

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!

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

This city has stunning architecture and it glows beautifully at night!

Like out of a fairytale. My favorite European capital so far.

17 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 the world.

Really beautiful, we like it, surely better than those south cities.

Amazing city much more beautiful than london with all the old architecture

Best capital city ever!

18 Dublin

I like the way they put the fish 'over there'.

Beautiful city Irish people well and truly best people on earth

I love it so much

19 Helsinki

Absolutely an amazingly beautiful city! Been there four times and I love it!

20 Athens

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

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

Loved it! So much history.

21 Warsaw

Great city with rich historical heritage!

Where old meets new. Great!

22 Belgrade

Belgrade will be one of beautiful European cities, but problem is poorest budget from City Mayor... Belgrade is top teen city... I love Belgrade.

City full of spirit and style with a lot of museums, theaters, culture, beautiful Moorish architecture, with many parks, charming, hospitable and with the best food in Europe

Belgrade offers the best entertainment in Europe!

The most beautiful city in the heart of Europe.

23 Kyiv

Kiev is easily one of the most beautiful cities. in the world. NicholasLoghin is just one of those jealous people who believe Ukraine is dangerous when only the eastern part is experiencing war; Ukraine is a great country to visit and is highly recommended to tourists.

Kiev is way more beautiful than overrated Paris. NicholasLoghin is just a Ukraine hater.

Rich history, beautiful architecture!

The history of this city is amazing!

24 Ljubljana

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.

The most beautiful country in Europe for sure!

Cause it's beautiful
