Most Famous European Cities – Amsterdam

Europe is filled with fantastic sites and fascinating culture and history. Sometimes it can seem almost as though there is too much to visit to ever really feel like you can tick ‘Europe’ off of your list. However that said, there are some places in the continent that are more famous than others and that are particularly high on most people’s ‘must see’ lists. This is particularly true of many of the cities, and it’s no surprise that Europe is so popular for city breaks. Here we will list some of the most famous European cities for you to consider visiting.

Amsterdam: Amsterdam is one of the most famous European cities for several reasons. It is first and foremost a very modern city, but at the same time it’s famous for being very liberal which makes it a great destination for stag and hen parties.

Athens: Athens is another of the most famous European cities and partly because of its expansive history – a hub of early civilization and progress. It also has a great climate which makes it great for holiday makers.

Berlin: Berlin is a very modern city that is kept highly clean and is particularly famous for its cobbled streets, war memorials and of course the chocolate. Like Paris and London it’s also one of the most famous cities in Europe due to the role of Germany on the world stage.

Budapest: Budapest is one of the most famous cities in Europe principally because it’s known for being so beautiful and featuring a large World Heritage Site. It also features 80 geothermal springs and impressive architecture such as the synagogue and huge parliament building.

London: London is one of the most famous cities in Europe because of the large amount of history and sites. There’s the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, The Millennium Wheel and many other instantly recognizable sights. Further to this London has all the other things that are synonymous with England such as the red phone boxes and the guards.

Paris: Paris has a lot going for it that makes it so famous – sites such as the Champs Elysée and the Eiffel Tower for instance, as well as its renown as the most romantic city in the world.

Rome: Again it’s the historical sites and landmarks that make Rome one of the most famous cities in Europe and some examples are the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain and the many squares.

Largest Cities in Europe - Moscow

Largest Cities in Europe - Moscow

Europe is filled with many amazing cities, some of which are huge modern metropolises, some of which are quaint and unusual urban areas and others of which are historical and unusual in their layout and what they have to offer. While any of these are great to visit, it’s the largest cities in Europe that have perhaps the most global impact and that many people are interested in. Here we will look at the top ten largest cities in Europe by population.

Moscow:

Topping this list of the largest cities in Europe is the capital of Russia with a huge population of around 10,600,000 people making it also the seventh largest city in the world.

London:

London is the Capital of England and an important industrial and economic centre within Western Europe. It’s also one of the largest cities in Europe and one with lots to do from tourists whether it’s riding the London Eye or visiting Big Ben.

St Petersburg:

Two of the top three biggest cities in Europe are situated in Russia which is no surprise considering the country itself is so large as to span continents.

Berlin:

The capital of Germany with a population of around 3,400,000. Famous for cobbled streets and for the Berlin Wall and other historical sites.

Madrid:

Madrid in Spain is a great holiday destination (particularly La Puerta del Sol) and also one of the largest countries in Europe.

Roma:

Roma (or Rome to me and you) is one of the most famous as well as one of the largest cities in Europe and has many famous sites such as the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. At the same time it is also famous for containing within it the smallest country in the world: The Vatican City. Which is almost ironic…

Kiev:

Kiev, capital of the Ukraine, is another of the largest cities in Europe and a highly important industrial and scientific centre for Eastern Europe.

Paris:

Paris is the eighth largest city in Europe, but that is not what it’s known for. Instead Paris is known as the city of ‘love’ and is a popular destination for many young couples. It is also a city rich in history and with many famous sites to behold making it a number one tourist destination for everyone travelling to Europe.

Bucharest:

Bucharest in Romania is one of the lesser known largest cities in Europe despite its large population.

Budapest:

Budapest -Hungary – is one of the most beautiful cities (the most beautiful according to many admirers) in Europe as well as one of the largest cities in Europe – just about making it onto this list of the ten largest cities in Europe.
