Paris, London and Brussels.

I know I´m biased but I´m going to say Helsinki as well. In winter the city can look really grey and drab, but during the summer it´s an amazing place. The closeness to the sea, the people, the liveliness and the relaxed yet exciting atmosphere is fantastic. You might find plenty of architecturally superior cities in Europe, but many of them are dull and unoriginal. Stockholm is similar to Helsinki. These two cities are among the most beatiful towns in Europe during summer.

There is no other city as Praque in Europe! When it comes to beauty and style. Don't get me wrong, i am not a Czech, i truly think Prague is the most beautifull!

Because beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder!
I consider Prague as the most beautiful capital too, because of its perfectly preserved historic architecture. But some people might consider this as boring. They prefer a modern cityscape or an equally mixed cityscape of old and new. They might consider contrasts beautiful.
