With a cultural score of 9.85 out of a possible 10, Prague is the most cultured city in Europe, Uswitch.com/mortgages reveals. Home to cultural landmarks like Prague Castle, The Golden City has 14.46 landmarks for every 100,000 residents, the most monuments of any city in Europe, and 129% more than Vienna’s 6.29 per 100,000. Prague also benefits from having the most theatres (1.89 per 100,000), 28.6% more than the number of theatres in London (1.47 per 100,000), and enough to crown the Czechian city as Europe’s cultural cornerstone.

With cultural hotspots such as the Rijkmuseum, Amsterdam (9.81/10) has the most museums per 100,000 people in Europe (7.66), and is the second most cultured city in the continent. The city has 4.8% more museums per 100,000 residents than Prague (7.31), and 142.4% more than Brussels (3.16 per 100,000). The Netherlands’ capital also consistently places highly for every factor, coming second for cultural tours (3.39 per 100,000), and third for theatres (1.16 per 100,000) and landmarks (9.31 per 100,000).

Dublin is the third most cultural city in Europe, with a score of 9.48/10. With 2.17 cultural tours per 100,000 residents, Ireland’s capital has half the tours on offer in Rome (5.87 per 100,000). Dublin also ranks fifth for landmarks (8.50 per 100,000), 41.2% fewer than Prague in first (14.46). However, culture in Dublin is assured by sites like The Irish Emigration Museum and The Irish Whiskey Museum, contributing to 4.72 museums per 100,000 people. This is the third highest in Europe, and 31.5% more than those in Oslo (3.59 per 100,000), placing fourth in this factor. 

Germany has two cities in the top 10
Two German cities feature in the top 10, with Munich (8.6/10) and Berlin (8.38/10) ranking fifth and eighth respectively. Berlin has the seventh most theatres of the cities analysed with 0.73 per 100,000 residents: 55.3% more than Munich’s 0.47 per 100,000. However, Munich’s cultural status is elevated through its number of cultural tours (1.73 per 100,000) - 154.4% more than Berlin (0.68 per 100,000), marking it as the most cultural city in Germany.
