Edinburgh (Scotland) - in terms of stunning architecture and incredible topography/scenery, Edinburgh stands as one of the most succinct and beautiful cities in the world. It's golden sandstone buildings, overlooking the firth of forth, framed by the legendary Forth Bridges make this city truly beautiful.

Paris (France) - Breathtaking architecture, which has a consistency unparalleled.

London (England/UK) - Incredible architecture mixed with astounding contemporary architecture. London has areas of immense beauty. Victorian, gothic, Georgian, baroque are all covered as is modernity.

Rome (Italy) - The eternal city is still breathtaking. The architecture of a bygone age is awe inspiring. Truly beautiful.

Honourable mentions to Vienna, Prague, Madrid & Moscow.

No, but all the other cities I mentioned have much more consistent cores, and most of them have less brutalist & post modern architecture. (Not that that has to be a bad thing but it certainly doesn't make a city more beautiful) In the UK alone, I'd say Edinburgh, Glasgow, Cambridge and Oxford all have more consistent beautiful city cores.

Whats the point of a poll? To see which city people most choose, because i want to know. That's the point of the thread. And i think it's a good one.

Thanks.

^ That's wrong. Scotland is a non-independent country within the sovereign state of the UK. Maybe you should have clicked at one of the links above..

The UK, as country does not exist, there is no such place. It is basically like a treaty that binds England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland together as a union. All (except England) have their own parliaments and capitals (London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast) and are recognised as separate countries.
