London. Beautiful city, beautiful history and architecture. Nice people. Great, gloomy weather that keeps me awake in the day. Everyone has to dress nicely in layers.

So perfect.

Prague is indeed one of the loveliest cities in the world. Amazing how beautiful a city can be if it can manage not to get bombed.

My list:

Seville (Sevilla): Guardian Angel of Andalusian Culture. Intoxicating. Thank God the Muslims left their mark before Spain stupidly threw them out!
Rio de Janeiro: The most beautiful urban setting on Earth. I can't believe God put so much in one place...rock mountains, forest, sea, beaches, islands, great climate...and then a city emerged there!
Savannah: Exquisitely charming, southern, rustic, gritty, subtropical, and original--all at the same time!
London: Urban Dynamite!
Buenos Aires: Urban Dynamite, but Inexpensive!
Atlanta: An Urban/Suburban Forest with no imitation in the World!


*(Wow...didn't mean to make so many God references...I guess I'm more spiritual than I thought...)

I think Zurich could give it a run for its money.

That's hard. But, I would say New York City, Salzburg (Austria) and Cabo San Lucas (Mexico), all for different reasons obviously.

Get there before they go on the Euro...the fact that they still use the Czech crown makes Prague a relative bargain for Europe.
