Seen a lot of places in Europe. I liked all Scandinavian capitals, Helsinki, Kopenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm, clean beautiful cities with nice people. For history Athens and Rome are excellent. Paris is way ahead for culture, the Louvre being top notch. Places where I would advise people not to go are Prague for the crime level. My wallet was pickpocked there and try to explain that to the police. But without such an experience it's problably fine. Until shortly I would have advised Venice to be the worst place, never to go there, because of the extreme tourist robbery tendency seeems to be legalized there, while the cultural part is not half as what is expected. However, I just returned from London and Venice is now a nice place compared to the capital of the UK where I was robbed 200 pounds by the police after being set up. Never ever go there.
