Top 25 most beautiful cities in the world (Part 1)
A beautiful city is different for everyone. New York, London, Paris, Rome, Tokyo – these are all beautiful cities that almost everyone on the planet wants to visit at some point in their lives. But there are hundreds of other cities with their own special beauty worth seeing. To inspire your passion for travel, here are 25 of the world’s most beautiful cities to see before you die.
25. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
While Rio de Janeiro has received conflicting press reviews since hosting the 2016 Olympics, it remains one of the most beautiful cities in the world and the third largest city in South America. If you’re a know-it-all rather than an adventurer by nature, keep in mind that Rio has the largest library in Latin America (the 8th largest in the world. Imagine how vintage books smell!)
24. Istanbul, Turkey
In this case, it’s hard to lay out all the reasons why you should visit Istanbul, Turkey, in one sentence. Formerly known as Constantinople and Byzantium, sometimes referred to as the gateway between East and West, the city has been known since 660 B.C. To say that it has a rich history and culture is a gross understatement. Istanbul can and should easily be classified as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
23. Lisbon, Portugal
Lisbon, the Capital of Portugal, is the oldest city in Western Europe. It is close to London and Paris and is located at the mouth of the Tagus River. Lisbon is not going to prove its beauty to anyone, as it is naturally beautiful city. Almost every place in the city has or is just a few steps away from a spectacular view.
22. Florence, Italy
The beautiful city has a high position in the ranking of “cities where you can eat good food before you die.” This beautiful and fabulous Tuscan countryside has been known to inspire artists for centuries. The taste of Tuscan wine cannot be described in words. The city itself is romantic and touching. The world’s filmmakers easily find picturesque expositions to realize their creative intentions. But really, ask someone who has visited Florence what their journey was like and they will mention the local beauty and food. After you eat, you can easily get lost in the beauty of the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore.
21. Mont Saint-Michet, France
The French town is best known to today’s generation as the place where Allied troops landed in 1944 to help save the world (that’s not an exaggeration, they really did it). Normandy is also stunningly beautiful; a visit to the monastery of Mont Saint-Michel alone is worth a lot, but there are also pebble beaches, quiet villages and some of the best medieval museums in France.
20. Chefchaouen, Morocco
Jewish refugees who landed in Chefchaouen, Morocco in the 1930s painted it blue. Everyone loved it and since then there has been a tradition there of repainting everything blue every year. Hidden in the mountains, the settlement of Reef is just an insanely beautiful blue city that is almost surreal.
19. Amsterdam, Netherlands
There is a misconception that Holland and the Netherlands are one and the same. In fact, there is a country Netherlands, while Holland is only a small but economically developed region. Amsterdam is a beautiful port city that has a well-deserved reputation for its lively nightlife. The beautiful city has given us one of the most beloved desserts in the whole world – donuts were invented here! Amsterdam boasts many cafes, interesting people and a rich history. The city has very well-preserved architectural structures that are over a hundred years old.
18. Cape Town, South Africa
The port city of Cape Town, South Africa, has beaches with beautiful clear blue water, white sand and penguins (heck yeah!). It’s also home to the African version of Burning Man, the Afrika Burn, and has its own, less busy version of Burbon Street called Long Street. If neither of these festivals are right for you, you can take a ticket to the cable car above the city and enjoy the spectacular views of the water and Table Mountain.
17. Bruges, Belgium
Walking through Bruges is like walking through a fairy tale. A beautiful city of some of the best preserved medieval cities in the world, located in the heart of Europe. Breathtaking Gothic and Baroque architecture connected by cobblestone alleyways and a canal that can take you through the city.
16. Seattle, Washington.
Seattle, Washington boasts one of the most unique landmarks in the world, the Space Needle. The futuristic tower is also home to some amazing museums and a restaurant located 165 meters high. Don’t pass by the Pike Place Market, which is a huge tourist attraction and is close to the waterfront. It is the oldest market in the United States and is believed to be founded in 1907.
