The research showed a hide difference between the northern and Scandinavian European capitals and those in Central and Eastern Europe.

Stockholm, Oslo and Berlin are in the top five while Kiev, Belgrade and Sofia are at the bottom of the table. The research takes into account the accessibility of tourist attraction, hotels and transportation, including airports.

London, which is considered among the most accessible cities in the world is outside the top ten, together with Paris, Madrid and Rome.
