London for it's liveliness and multicultural touch. Even after I came here for the first time (that was back in December 2004) I felt somewhat familiar with it. After spending here 1 year I feel like if I were living here for my whole life. I doubt I'd feel the same in any other city in Europe. :okay:

London. Of course I may be biased but I think it's the most varied and cosmopolitan city in the world. I have travelled all over the world and I've barely seen a city that can match the variety of architecture, neighbourhoods, and people as London. I love the parks, the river, and the architectural contrasts between the grand Victoriana and contemporary glass and steel. The nightlife, culture, entertainment, and restaurant scenes are superb too - arguably the most varied in the world.

This thread should be renamed - into "name your city"

Personally, I liked Ljubljana a LOT. This city, which is 5 times smaller than nearby Vienna, impressed me a lot more than Vienna, with its livelyness, architecture, the restaurants that line the Ljubljanica river (for a moment there, it seemed Ljubljana had more restaurants in its downtown core than much larger Belgrade)

And the language spoken there of course, doesn't differ much from Serbian so you don't need to strain yourself too much

Its definately the #1 city on my list of places that i'd like to re-visit. Probably will this summer

Why? Most people didn't name their own city and if they did, named other cities as well.
What's wrong with living in your favourite city? They way I see it you are doing things right if you do (so move out of Toronto already...).

I stick with London on this one, though not because i live here. Actually, it's the other way around - i live here because it's my favourite city

This will result in a endless list of the most wellknown cities of the world. But that is normal I will say. The big city, like London or Rome, always have more to explore the next time. On the other hand all those small towns is worth visiting. And the small town or neigbourhood exist in the big city and thats why you find it that interesting.

So, London and Rome because I've been there and like to see them again!
