Prnu. The city of the right size, which is 43000 people and great in any other perspective aswell.

Tartu gets the second place.

Because it is my hometown, because it's waters flow in my blood, it's air flows through my lungs and the city itself shines in my memories.

Vienna, Budapesht.

It's funny how the Austro-Hungarian Empire let so many places develop culturally and aesthetically.

From the cities ive been to:

Dublin - been there a few times, nice scenery, cool people and good beer.

Yerevan - Armenian capital, one of the richest histories. Great vodka.

From what ive seen in pictures and want to visit:

In no particular order, Paris, Rome, Athens, Istanbul, St. Petersburg, Beirut, Cairo, Isfahan, Tabriz, Shiraz, Tehran, Jerusalem, Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Berlin, Prague. Much more but those are the main ones.

Bern is indeed beautiful, especially if you are fond of small towns. It's very well organised, has charming old buildings and fountains and of course the mother bear and her cubs. Although I must say everytime I was there I had felt sorry for the bear family, they live in a rather small and shabby cave/pool in the middle of the city. Not sure if they're let out.

My favorites go as;

Geneve, because I miss it and have great memories of it.
Istanbul, for the same reasons even though actually living in Istanbul sucks most of the time (traffic and crowds)
Bercelona, because it feels like it's out of a story book with all that Art Nouveau
Vienna, melancholic and pretty
Florence, breathtaking
and New York, because I live here and it's pretty damn cool even though I hate, hate, hate its winter when it goes down to -30C and the windchill strikes!

Isn't that a bit much?  Compared to Europe, New York is around where Switzerland and Austria are in longitute right?  It seems a bit much...

Its where Rome is, lattitude wise.
But it gets the full continental treatment, with no warm mediteranean or gulf stream to spare it the worst.

I never got to see the bears in Bern in the end, oh well, an excuse to go there again

My favorite is Paris.  So beautiful and they've managed to embrace the present and future and never lose the past.

New York, Rome, London and San Francisco are up at the top of my list too.

It is a bit much, if you ask me. The thing is, as Cywr says, there is no Gulf Stream or Mediterranean to warm things up and yet it is right by the Atlantic Ocean. What's more, in Manhattan, because of the way the city was built you get the worse corridor effect from the Hudson River to East River once the windstorms start and it's the windchill that does you in rather than the cold. New York is cold and humid, you really feel it to your bones. Last year the -30C days were more than 10 days at least. I saw the temperature below 0 in Fahrenheit, it was unbearable. For three days my school was out because of the cold, because the windchill was lethal to people with weak lungs (asthmatics etc.) New York gets colder than Reykjavik, not on average but in minimum temperature.

I'm hoping it won't be as cold this year but the way it's going it's not promising.

Wow.. never knew that about New York...  One reason not to go there in the winter .

Ah.. and you know I meant to say latitude, right?

Yes, it's a magnificent city.  The only thing I don't like is that solitary tower in one section of the city, I forget what it is called.  I heard they were going to knock it down, is that true? (Hope you guys know what I'm talking about)

Paris si so dirty and smelly, everyone smokes and theres more filth than a New Jersey city, but historically, yes a very fabulous city anyway.  I dont like very clean cities anyway, they have less personality.
