Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed! Very useful information particularly the last part I care for such info much. I was seeking this particular information for a long time. Having been to both Warsaw and Krakow, I really disagree with placing Warsaw first. The beautiful, walkable Krakow with the castle and main square stole my heart. And, having the park running around the old town is just amazing. Unfortunately, Warsaw is just too full of Communist built concrete block buildings, despite the rebuilding of the old town.
Being a University town also adds to Krakows vibrancy. At night the old town square is just magical. Give me Krakow any day. Oh my God..!

I used to study a little bit about Europe countries After watching and reading all these legend cities i really have to visit Italy at least once in my life. Nice list. Been to 6 in the past few years and 3 London, Paris, Amsterdam almost 40 years ago. Have two must visit cities from the list — St. Petersburg and Rome. On the Baltic States, I prefer Riga to Tallinn as the former has plenty more to see, albeit is grittier. Barcelona gets most of the attention, but while it is beautiful, we still prefer Madrid.
Such a great post, makes me want to pack my life up and travel!
