There’s no doubt there are a lot of beautiful places to visit all over the world, and while beaty is subjective, a new report claims to have used science to pick the Most Beautiful City in the World.
- A new report by Online Mortgage Advisor looked at Google Street View for front-facing photos of hundreds of streets and more than 2,400 buildings in historical cities worldwide to determine the Most Beautiful Cities in the World, according to science.
- They then looked at corners of each building to determine the “proportion of the longest and shortest lengths of its dimensions.”
- They then compared that to what is considered the “golden ratio,” which is used as a barometer of beauty, which numerically is a ratio of 1:1.618.
- With all that in mind, the report picked Chester, England as the Most Beautiful City in the World, scoring 83.7% alignment to the “golden ratio.”
- Coming in just behind Chester is Venice, Italy, which scored 83.3%.
- The only U.S. city to make it in the Top 20 is New York, New York, which earned a 77.7% to land at 17.
