These cities are the second biggest in their respective countries (with the exception of San Francisco) and are generally considered hip alternatives, popular with artists, students, etc...

What's your favourite?

San Francisco is the second city...of California. Los Angeles is the second city of the US and Chicago is still traditionally known as such.

I'll say Barcelona, although there is an awful lot of pickpockets strolling those streets all the time. Lovely place though.

As they have mentioned, many cool second cities are missing in that pool. Rio is the best.

Those are all (with the exception of Dubrovnik) the capitals/largest cities of their respective country

Out of the cities listed: Montreal (and San Francisco).
Other second largest cities I really like: Hamburg (!), Osaka, Busan, Porto, St. Petersburg and Göteborg. Graz is also quite nice
