    Maciamo, did you ever visited Switzerland? I lived almost 9 years in Lausanne.
    From my balcony I had the most beautiful view, Lac Léman and then those mountains covered with snow.
    Although I am Francophile (love France and the French) I have been very happy in Lausanne. Often made a boat trip around the lake really wonderful, or just across the lake to Evian in France. I worked several years in Genève also a very beautiful and interesting town, but Lausanne stole my heart.

    I don't know Switzerland so well. That's why I didn't list any town there.

    Yeah, great place to have fun, smoke some weed every day, and do nothing else. Don't you think, that Poland is more fun? I've been to Cracow (aston hostel), and it was just great. Cool staff, nice people and reasonable prices.
    And Cracow was stunning! Beautiful city.

    I think Poland is way more fun! Last summer, when I went there with couple friends of mine we had totally unforgetable time! Best parties, best shopping centres,best monuments and everything! We were also very lucky, because we found this Aston Hostel and we saved loads of money, because it's really cheap! And I must say, there were several times, when we were too tired to go out for a party, so we stayed in our room and have a party of our own! :) Best time ever - Poland rocks!

    Yes, I have been to Istanbul. I have now added it to the list. I hesitated between 1A, 1B and 2A. I saw almost everything in my guidebook in about 5 days, so I opted for 1B.

    Ah hem.....where might I ask is Dundee?


    ps. No seriously, no one should ever go anywhere near Dundee, the general rule is if you are traveling away from it you are going in the right direction.

    Ljubljana

    I recently spent a weekend in Ljubljana and I thought that it was perfect for a break of that length, a pocket sized Baroque-style city, lots of lively streets, pedestrian friendly, good food and good value.

    Zagreb is about the same, just bigger.I would divide Central European capitals by their representativeness, attractiveness and size in this way:
    1.Vienna
    2.Zagreb
    3.Ljubljana

    Note this is just a categorization, in the 1)category would probably fit Prague and Budapest as well.

    I really liked London, being able to understand the natives was a big plus. I also enjoyed Amsterdam it is a fun place to spend a couple of days. Rome was my favorite. Great place, noisy, congested and hot in the summer, but a wonderful place. After several days I got where my ability to speak Spanish had transformed into an ability to understand Italian. Truthfully I had less trouble understanding Italian than I did understanding some people in Scotland.
    Naples was beautiful, but scared the feces out of me. In the first 5 minutes of getting off the train, I saw a fellow get his stomach sliced open right inside the station. Then a couple of hours later not far from our hotel my wife was nearly knocked down by a couple on a Vespa trying to steal her handbag, they missed her bag but got a Japanese ladies about 15 meters down the sidewalk.

    Tastes do vary a lot between people. For me, there is no way that Toulouse is more beautiful than Nice. But I don't really like raw brick, and I love colourful façades...

    You can also find Russian architecture (orthodox church, hotel, palace) from the Belle epoque in Nice

    It all depends on what you are interested in, of course. I love ancient architecture, and among my favourite places in Europe are Heidelberg, Tarragona, Segovia, Edinburgh, Prague, Antwerp, Torino, London, Dresden, and many more, mostly because the cultural offer is wide and the city has a special feeling.

    Why isnt Edinburgh on the list.
    Edinburgh Castle, The National Museum of Scotland,The Royal Mile, The Scottish Parliament, Arthurs Seat, The Royal Yacht.
    It would take a week to list all of Edinburghs attractions never mind visit them.

    Amsterdam is great. I think also Athens it's not bad, but more for cultural reasons...it's not the same sensation like in Amsterdam walking in the streets.
