I've been to many parts of Eastern & Western & Northern Europe and the Mediterranean. I've been to 16 states in the United States. I was born and live in Central Europe.

The most unique city I have visited and found to be the most interesting and diverse in both architecture and vibe is...

NEW ORLEANS


New Orleans is magic. It has a vibe that's nowhere to be found. A melting pot of tribal African, old Spanish and French and quintessential American qualities. It also has a strange mystical feel for some reason. Maybe because of those hundreds of years old oak trees with the Spanish moss and colorful beaded necklaces hanging down from their branches. Maybe the Haitian voodoo elements in its history. New Orleans has also preserved its classic Americannes: the neon signs, the old-school movie theaters, live blues and jazz music everywhere. The old streetcars!

That city is indeed magic!

Indeed it is magic. People either feel it or not.

IMO, NO is the only city in the "new world" to have such magic. My great, great, great grandfather also felt the magic many years ago and settled his family here where we have flourished despite the heat, humidity and the ever present roachs.

Default Takes me back in time!

So true that New Orleans is magical. There is an old spirit in this beautiful city that can't be found anywhere else. Whether I walk through the streets near the Riverwalk or along St. Charles and towards Audubon Zoo the peacefulness I feel is like something "old".
It's hard to explain but it's a comforting, nostalgic feeling. Love it so much and wish I could visit more often.

Yes, it is quite a place. Interesting to hear a European viewpoint on New Orleans.

For those of us from the U.S., we often feel we have to travel to "old" Europe to experience a place with deep history and character. Many U.S. cities are dominated by post WW II architecture (bland shopping malls, tract housing, etc.).

However, I agree that New Orleans is in a different ballpark with its rich history, unique architecture and varied cultural influences.

Miami refers to itself as the "Magic City" Perhaps New Orleans could be called the "Mystical City" as a place that inspires a sense of spiritual mystery, awe, and fascination.

Even the Catholic Church St.Louis looks like a magical fairy tale castle.
