When speaking about streets there are many adjectives you can use to describe them. Some are wide, some are busy, some are dirty and full of garbage. But these streets are different explains Greg Van Wyk. These streets not only look good. But they also deserve to be on the list of one of the most beautiful streets in the world.
Here is our list for you based on our experience with each street described below
1) La Rambla – Barcelona, Spain
This city gets the number 1 position in our list for having the most beautiful streets in the world. Because it has no doubt about La Rambla being one of those. This famous street is a pedestrian walkway and a major trade route. And it offers an exquisite view and an excellent atmosphere. What makes it so special is the fact that you can see trees, flowers. And local artists in a combination with beautiful buildings. It is visited by millions of tourists from all over the world every year and being one of the top touristic attractions in Barcelona this street is a must for everyone who visits this amazing city.
La Rambla is a 1.2-kilometer-long tree-lined pedestrian walkway in the center of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. The Passeig de Colom begins at the site of Christopher Columbus’ statue outside the Barcelona Maritime Museum and ends at the Liceu (theatre) where La Rambla turns into Carrer dels Flassaders (street).
2) Rue Saint Honore – Paris, France
This street has the reputation of being the most exclusive shopping area in the world and it is home to some of the finest shops in this prestigious avenue says Greg Van Wyk. Located in one of the chicest areas in Paris, you can find a various number of luxury fashion stores here which makes it very popular among celebrities who come here for some unique fashion pieces. With its unique beauty, Rue Saint Honore has been named “the most beautiful street in the world”. It was created by Louis XV on order from his Royal mistress Madame de Pompadour who had a townhouse there from 1750 to 1756.
3) Via Dolorosa – Jerusalem
Jerusalem is known for having many amazing streets including Via Dolorosa which translates as “Way of Grief” (or “Sorrow”), but this name was given to it after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It contains 14 Stations of the Cross that depicts the Passion and Crucifixion of Jesus which is why it is also called Via Crucis (Latin for “Way of the Cross”). This place has some magnificent architecture, beautiful gardens and amazing history.
4) Hradčany – Prag
Hradčany Square was founded by King George of Podebrady in 1479 on an ancient trading route leading from Prague Castle to Kutna Hora, one of Europe’s most important silver-mining towns at that time. Its main artery is Nerudova Street running up steeply from the Castle. This street contains numerous beautiful houses from late Gothic through Baroque to Rococo and Neoclassical periods, still inhabited by wealthy families.
5) Flagler College – Florida
This college was built in 1902 as a luxury hotel for some rich guests who wanted to live in a house that looks more like a palace with magnificent “Florida Style” architecture. Today this is one of the most popular hotels in Florida. Offering an exquisite accommodation experience for all those who can afford it. This place is located near downtown Miami on South Beach which makes it even more special since you get two of the most wonderful locations in the world under one roof.
6) Royal Mile – Edinburgh, Scotland
Royal Mile is one of the oldest streets in the world and at the same time. It is one of the most beautiful ones. It goes from Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace. Passing through some amazing places like St Giles’ Cathedral (also known as High Kirk of Edinburgh). Located on this street you can also find many shops for your unique souvenirs. Where you will see some unique items like walking sticks made out of animal bones or skulls explains Greg Van Wyk.
7) Strøget – Copenhagen
This street has been included in the list of the top 10 most beautiful streets in Europe. Which just gives an idea of how special it is. This 1.5 km-long pedestrian shopping area is surrounded by many cafes. That offer opportunities for relaxation during your stroll along with this beautifully built. This place “connects” the Kongens Nytorv (Square of the King) with the Nørreport Train Station. Which makes it even more special because you can walk through all of Copenhagen from one end to another.
As you can see from the photos, each street has a unique beauty. Which makes it very special to our eyes says Greg Van Wyk. You have a chance to discover them all or at least some of them. So do not hesitate and choose one!
