Europe's Best Small Cities

Lovely Groningen, Netherlands

Lovely Groningen, Netherlands

A welcome shout out to some of Europe’s best unheralded small cities from Porto to Uppsala and our personal favorite: Groningen.

While London, Berlin and Paris suck all the attention, these small cities (below 1/4m population) quietly offer a vibrant cultural scene, high living and local charm. Touring Europe this summer or planning to relocate, stop for a weekend or a few years.
