6 Cities in Europe that Offer the Best Cultural Experiences (INFOGRAPHIC)

Did you know that London has been rated as the 55th most livable city in the world, or that Paris has the highest number of Michelin starred restaurants? Barcelona ranks in as the city with the most UNESCO World Heritage Sites and Amsterdam is the birthplace of Vincent van Gogh and Ann Frank. This infographic, created by our friends over at HouseTrip, offers an array of fascinating facts about the six most culturally appealing cities in Europe.

    1. Hi Peggy! Thanks for your comment. You’re welcome to repost using the “Repost” feature at the top of the page.

  1. This is fantastic, would I be allowed to repost this, with credits of course, on our website futurecapetown.com?
    We doing a liveable cities them next week, and this would be great 🙂

    1. Hi Emma. We’re glad you enjoyed the infographic. You can use the “Repost” button to re-generate the piece on your site. Thanks!

  2. Hi! Thanks for the great infographic, very nice! But if I have to be critical: almost none of the people you mention in the section ‘famous natives’ were born in those cities…. easily fixed by naming it ‘famous inhabitants’ (although Van Gogh for example did not really live in Amsterdam)! It is actually the characteristic of great cities that many talented people move there to partake in the artistic/intellectual/economic activity.

  3. Wonderful infographic, but the photo for the Museu Picasso in Barcelona looks an awful lot like the Musée Picasso in Paris.

  4. Interesting post, however it’s full of mistakes.
    1- You cannot compare the whole area of London if you only compare the city of Amsterdam or Barcelona. London City (zone 1 and 2) is smaller and around 4-5 Million population.
    2- Submarine inventor was Isaac Peral born in Cartagena (Murcia) not Barcelona,
    3-Pablo Picasso born in Malaga (Andalucia) not in Barcelona
    4- Van Gogh born in Zundert not in Amsterdam
    etc.

    Beside the buildings, art movements etc. that you choose which in my opinion are not the most representatives ,however that is more a personal opinion, it would be great that you are more accurate with the information you include in your website.

  5. Robert thanks for pointing this out. It keeps on happening, particularly in the English speaking world – everyone who lives in the M4 corridor (that is Greater London) should be compared with Greater Paris which has 14 million inhabitants. Paris is so much bigger than London but the English keep on denying it 🙂

  6. Slightly surprised that Vienna did not feature in it. Not too sure whether ‘number of museums’ represents a true measure of a city’s culture?

  7. You are talking about all capital cities in Europe. Where is Barcelona coming from? I don’t know since when Barcelona is the capital city of Spain? Though they are fighting NOT being a part of Spain. For your information Madrid is the capital city of Spain.
