Travel website Travel Supermarket partnered with bloggers Adam Goffman, who runs “Travels of Adam,” and Emily Ray from “The Cosy Traveller” to find out which neighborhoods across Europe will become tourist hotspots in 2017.
The ranking was broken down into three categories — culture, creativity, and value — and looked at the ratio of trend-setting and creative industry indicators (such as independent coffee shops, vintage fashion stores, independent bike shops, co-working spaces and art galleries/studios) to the number of residents. Penalty points were subtracted for areas that had high numbers of big chain brands such as Starbucks, Costa and Pret a Manger.
Holešovice scored 8/10 for culture and creativity, and 6/10 for value. The district has been described as “filled with modern bars and restaurants serving contemporary European cuisine.”
Kreuzberg in Berlin has been named Europe’s coolest neighborhood, according to the bloggers. It scored 10/10 in the ranking’s cultural category. The area and its bohemian residents have been made famous in the music industry.
