European City of the Year 2011


Scotland was the big winner at the Academy of Urbanism's annual awards for the best places in Europe, with Glasgow and Tobermory Harbour voted European City of the Year and Great Place of the Year respectively. The Academy's website is a bit short on the details, but apparently Glasgow's 'friendliness, local character, commercial success and sustainability' were enough to beat Budapest and Helsinki, the other shortlisted cities.
