Yes its true! A new survey by search engine Yahoo! has announced that Cork is one of the top ten cities to visit!
Cork, has made the cut, which is sure to offer a further boost to the already lofty opinion Corkonians have of the capital of their own “People’s Republic”.
The list – in which capital cities are conspicuous largely by their absence – also includes Antwerp, Valencia, Munich, Rotterdam, St Petersburg, Edinburgh, Gothenburg, Lyon and Thessalonika.
There may well be some science involved in cobbling together Yahoo!’s apparently entirely arbitrary list, for which the book ‘1000 Great Holiday Ideas’ seems to have been the source.
Cork is described as a city with a “burgeoning arts, culture and restaurant scene [and] an invigorating mixture of cramped 17th-Century alleyways, snug old pubs, top cuisine and modern architectural masterpieces.”
