Top 10 Most Underrated Cities

Perhaps because of their proximity to better known locales, these cities are too often neglected by travelers. In fact, you should visit them.

The Top Ten

1 Baku, Azerbaijan
2 Trabzon, Turkey
3 Providence, United States
4 Heidelberg, Germany

There are many things to do. The castle is world-famous and you could go there by a cable railway. The oldtown is nice. As in many other European cities, you don't need a car, the public transportation with buses and trams is perfect. Otherwise you can use a bike.
Heidelberg is located on the Neckar river and lies romantically at the edge of the Odenwald mountain. It is much better than more industrialized and larger neighbor cities, as Mannheim, Frankfurt or Stuttgart.

5 Lviv, Ukraine
6 Kazan, Russia
7 Glasgow, Scotland

Absolutely. Glasgow gets such a poor reputation and it is completely unjustified. Edinburgh's crime rates are soaring, Glasgow's are on the decline - but you'll never see that in the media! - euroexplorer

9 Blackpool, England
10 Bruges, Belgium

While Bruges has become more of a destination since the release of the film In Bruges in 2008, the city still lies in the shadows of Antwerp and Brussels when it comes to Belgian destinations. - fuadmondeo

30 Grand Rapids, United States

34 Tel Aviv, Israel
35 Guangzhou, China

Totally underrated though it's a cultural and culinary capital of southern China, a city with great history and amazing architecture.

36 Lucerne, Switzerland

Small, but beautiful city. Unfortunately a bit to expensive.
