Although Krakow in Poland topped the list, the city was closely followed by Prague in the Czech Republic, Budapest in Hungary and Vienna in Austria, which are all destinations that can be visited during river cruises with Scenic Tours, were included in the list, but did not make the top 10.
Based on a number of factors such as food and drink, accommodation, cultural attractions, ease of getting around, shopping, and value for money, voters were asked to rate each category out of five. Only cities that received more than 30 responses were included, with the final list consisting of 47 destinations chosen by the public.
Prague featured at number 3 in the list and scored 5 stars for its value for money. One of its special mentions was for its public transport, which is free to visitors aged over 70. Cultural attractions such as the Old Town Hall’s medieval Astronomical Clock and the statue-lined Charles Bridge over the River Vltava are also reasons why the city is deemed a popular tourist destination.
Budapest also scored highly for its value for money, helping the city into seventh place on the list. Vienna followed at number 8, with those voting praising its world-class musical performances such as Viennese concerts and free filmed operas.
Those voting were asked to rate the cities based on experiences in the last 12 months up until August this year, with the condition that cities chosen must be within a three-hour flight of London. In contrast to the top 10 cities mentioned above, Milan and Naples in Italy featured at the bottom of the list.
