To judge a city as a whole one should evaluate many factors, such as history, architecture, art, but also more modern elements such as gastronomy. However, when it comes to hospitality, only one factor is enough: the attitude of the locals. Taking into account the atmosphere created by the inhabitants of a city, the readers of Conde Nast Traveler highlighted the friendliest destinations in Europe for this year, which includes Athens:
12. Dubrovnik, Croatia
Although tourists often bypass it to go to neighboring Split, the city made it onto the Conde Nast Traveller's list. Its very strong elements include the pedestrianized streets, the baroque architecture and of course the background of the sea.
11. Athens, Greece
In addition to the fact that according to Conde Nast Traveler, the Greeks are among the friendliest people on the planet, Athens combines modern life with a rich historical background.
10. Amsterdam, Netherlands
Amsterdam is full of postcard-worthy locations. According to Conde Nast Traveler, the city has managed to attract art and history lovers, as well as people who want to have a culinary adventure.
9. Stockholm, Sweden
In addition to the picturesque landscapes, Stockholm invites visitors to embrace the laid-back lifestyle as they create an extremely friendly atmosphere.
8. Lisbon, Portugal
It is a city that has become a favorite destination for the weekend, due to its unique architecture, but also the most modern elements, such as gastronomy.
7. Oslo, Norway
Thanks to the hospitality generously offered by the people of Oslo, the city manages to come “out of the shadow” of Stockholm and Copenhagen, according to Conde Nast Traveler. It is a destination that has brought out the best elements of the “personality” of Scandinavia.

An internationally known destination for volcanoes, natural pools, cool colors, but also museums with Viking history, it is a favorite city for many Europeans.
