Madrid, Spain, took the third place in the ranking due to its sustainability performance. By 2050, the city plans to become carbon-neutral with a car-free center and environmentally friendly transportation, Euromonitor International notes.

Other cities in the top ten are Amsterdam in the Netherlands (5th place), Berlin in Germany (6th place), Rome in Italy (7th place), Barcelona in Spain (9th place), and London in the UK (10th place). There are also three non-European cities among them: Dubai in the UAE (2nd place), Tokyo in Japan (4th place), and New York in the United States (8th place).

12th place went to Germany's Munich, and the next highest, 13th, went to Italy's Milan. Dublin in Ireland took 15th place, probably due to the launch of the country's first 3D city map, Vienna in Austria took 18th place, and Lisbon in Portugal took 20th place.

Europe's success is driven by rapid urbanization and widespread adoption of technology. With the popularization of remote work, high-speed Internet, flexible booking and a comfortable working environment have become an important factor, Euronews.travel writes.

Vilnius, Lithuania, was the last city in the top 100 among European cities. It ranked 92nd, and this is the first time the city has been included in the ranking.

In particular, megacities were evaluated by 55 indicators to get an overall assessment of attractiveness. The categories included economic and business performance, tourism, infrastructure, tourism policy, health, safety, and sustainability.

Euromonitor International also noted that cities are revising their strategies to combat overcrowding after COVID-19 and introducing additional tourism fees to also support investment opportunities in their cities while enhancing natural and cultural assets.
