          My main interest is WW II, so I selected that city that had the greatest deal of WW II combat within it's confines. Warsaw

          Berlin would be my second choice.

            Sorry it took so long - had some trouble putting the whole question in the few characters available.

              I picked London. I was there for a week in 2010 and barely scratched the surface. For a large city I liked the place, and there is a ton of history there going back a long way. A guy could spend a couple day each in several of the museums, there's good food if you know where to look, the rest of southern England has rich history as well. Yep, London.

                Roma.

                Although Constantinople would be my second choice.

                  I would've picked Rome or London, if not for the fact that I'll be visiting both rather soon. I voted Moscow from the remainder, though I would've preferred St. Petersburg.
                  Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
                  And sorry I could not travel both
                  And be one traveler, long I stood
                  ...
                  Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
                  I took the one less traveled by,
                  And that has made all the difference.

                      I voted Rome, having already been to Paris, London and Madrid from the list.
                      Could have voted Moscow, it's a draw pretty much.

                        I picked London also. Cause Glasgow and Edinburgh, Scotland wasn't on it, nor was Belfast or Dublin. After those I'd have picked Rome.

                          Athens,Greece.
                          It's the birthplace of democracy and it has a whole lot of history to explore.
                          If anyone watches Musuem secrets the one on Athens is one of the best.

                            Surprising that St. Petersburg (Leningrad) isn't mentioned.

                              Yeah, I may have to do another poll sometime including that and some other more popular ones.
