Moving around in Amsterdam feels like crawling through a painting. Crawling because you'll be pausing every few steps, staring wonderstruck at the beautiful canals, bridges, narrow streets, and those colourful buildings.
The prettiest city of Eastern Europe. It has single handedly made travelling to Eastern Europe fashionable. Be it the Wenceslas Square, Old Town Square, Charles Bridge or boating in Vltava River, time comes to absolute standstill in this ancient city.
So this is what Russians were creating behind the famous Iron Curtain. Massive cities. Moscow and St. Petersburg are twin cities as grand as any other in the world. While Moscos has the Seven Sisters, kremlin and the Red Square, it is St. Petersburg which is the soul of Russia.

The City by the Bay is not only pretty, but pretty much a powerhouse. All of America's (and so the world's) internet moguls are in and around this mega city. But wait, we're here to talk of it's beauty. San Francisco, to many, is the most beautiful city of America (even more than New York). Maybe because it's built on the hills, or maybe it's the colourful Disnified houses. The city is also a culture and fashion capital.
