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 Phoenix, United States
8 Glasgow, Scotland
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

Nice cute metropolitan, there's about pretty much everything a city could have SERIOUSLY! The only issue here are high taxes, the french thing isn't true you'll be welcomed in English believe me
