I was born in Copenhagen. I am of course flattered that you have 'my city' on your top 10 list.

I think I would have to add Warsaw to this list- the rebuilt old town feels ancient, yet it is all post war.
However I do hope to visit Copenhagen this year and would ove to go to Rome

Interesting list. I have been to some of the places you mention and they are really great destinations. Of course, in Europe alone there are many more places worth visiting.
