It has to be Prague. There are other incredibly beautiful capitals with Paris and Vienna coming to my mind first but when I look at Prague I feel that I'm about to melt. That city is too beautiful and charming.

Once upon a time there was Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Amsterdam and London. All the Euro Capitals worshiped them until they died. The end.

1. Paris
2. Amsterdam
3. Edinburgh - Surprised it hasn't got many mentions
4. Dublin - Surprised it hasn't got many mentions
5. Madrid - Surprised it hasn't got many mentions
6. Prague
7. Vienna

VERY hard to choose.

Many positive words to sum up London, beautiful isn't one of them. Has it's beautiful parts, but isn't consistent enough.

Perfect!

I would only add Lisbon to the list (though I like oPorto better, but it's about capitals so never mind...)

That's true for all cities. Do you think everyone in Paris live in a Haussmann building?

I dont have exact order, but in my personal top 10 are these cities:

Prague,
Vienna,
Paris,
Rome,
Stockholm,
Berlin,
Budapest,
Ljubljana,
Kobehavn,
London

but there are a lot more beautiful cities - Tallin, Riga, Bruxelles...I think that every capital in Europe is beautiful in a way and depends on individual taste
