Reykjavík has been voted the world’s 10th friendliest city by Condé Nast Traveler's annual Readers’ Choice Award Survey.

This is what Condé Nast’s readers have to say: “Like nowhere else in Europe,” this world’s most northerly capital city is “an eye-opening experience as to the Icelanders’ ability to make the most of an inhospitable climate” with their “deep sense of culture, intellect, sophistication, and friendliness.” “The hospitality was amazing, no matter who you met.” Plus: “Reykjavik is hip, and the locals like to party!”

Above Reykjavík on the list is Auckland, New Zealand; Budapest, Hungary; Kyoto, Japan; Edinburgh, Scotland; Bruges, Belgium; Kraków, Poland; Queenstown, New Zealand; Dublin, Ireland; and Sidney, Australia, which was voted the friendliest city in the world.

In Condé Nast’s opinion, Caracas, Venezuela, is, on the other hand, the least friendly city in the world, followed by Casablanca, Morocco; Guangzhou, China; Guatemala City, Guatemala; Nairobi, Kenya; New Delhi, India; Cairo, Egypt; Moscow, Russia; Jakarta, Indonesia; and Cannes, France.
