The World’s 30 Best Cities for Art, Food, and Music

2017-03-20
by Chloe Pantazi

The INSIDER Summary:

  • A new ranking reveals which of the world's most popular cities have the most cultural attractions per capita.
  • The ranking includes the number of theaters, concert halls, museums, art galleries, World Heritage Sites, and Michelin-starred restaurants.
  • Amsterdam, Dublin, and Prague top the list, which also includes cities like Madrid and Riyadh.

Whether you're into art or music, or just really like good food, there's no better way to get to know a city than by immersing yourself in its culture.

A new ranking from TotallyMoney.com reveals which places have the most cultural attractions in the world.

The credit comparison site looked at 30 of the world's most popular cities and used data from TripAdvisor and the Michelin Guide to find the number of theaters, concert halls, museums, art galleries, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and Michelin-starred restaurants in each one.

The list takes into account the number of cultural attractions per capita — so some smaller cities may appear to have fewer attractions, though they're actually bustling culture capitals.

Here are the world's top 30 cities, ranked by their cultural offerings.
