The winners of the competition are selected on the basis of expert assessments, ratings of world reservation systems, consumer reviews and voting results in the “Active Citizen” project.

Before the pandemic, in 2019, the capital was visited by 25.1 million tourists. This is almost twice as much as in 2010.
