lol, what an idiotic statement. Athens is one of the oldest named cities in the world,
having been continuously inhabited for at least 7000 years, and its recorded history
begins in 1400 BC. At that time, your Mongolian ancestors were still in a primitive state

No. NOOOO!

Istanbul is the most historic place in Europe. It has most history and culture of all cities in Europe.

It is not only full of Roman history but is also loaded with the mayor of Christian and Muslim history.

There is no other place in Europe that is so full of everything that emblematises European, Christian, Muslim, Byzantine, and Roman culture and history.

There is no other place in Europe with such an amount and diversity and scale of history!!!

No other place in Europe!!!

Old does not necessarily mean historically valuable.

Look at me to get the proof. I am quite old but not valuable hahaha...

DELHI-it has seven cities from several BC to medieval and British Raj.
I know that western education is quite bias against India and Asia as a whole but still Delhi is the most historically rich city in the world.Most of the people in Old Delhi are licing like that from thousands of years.

Rome is the most historic city in the world. It is capital of Italy and a cosmopolitan city like no other, offering endless possibilities for taste and pleasure of any kind of tourist.
