We said a surprising goodbye to last year’s champion Sarajevo in The Best City To Visit Travel Tournament Round of 32 earlier this week. Winning on a tie-breaking decision, Cape Town averted defeat to face Bucharest and Rosslyn’s dedicated effort came to an end. Sibiu continues along comfortably while quietly Casablanca and Buenos Aires are marching forward. This Sweet 16 is an extremely competitive one so I don’t expect there to be any easy victories.
Voting in the Sweet 16 is open until 6:00pm US EST this Monday, March 18th. Those of you reading through email and RSS will have to click-through to this page to vote.
The Best City Visit To Travel Tournament 2013 Sweet 16 brackets.
Please keep in mind the final votes for any poll aren’t final until they’re verified by my diligent verification team. The Elite 8 continues on with the survivors of this round on Tuesday, March 19th.
How about a Sibiu – Bucharest final? 😀
We can see that coming. Sibiu is favorite either way
Thanks, Andrei! 🙂
For those of you who support Sibiu in this competition, don’t forget to use the hashtag I’ve created for that: #SibiuForBestCity2013
Thanks again for your support so far, everyone! GO Sibiu! We can make this happen!
That would be awesome! 🙂
This is a great tournament! Glad to participate and pick my favorites for Best City to Visit. Thanks!
I think that only the Romanians are voting here.
Amazing concept – and some of these polls are REALLY tight!
How about Kirkwall capital of the northern Scottish islands of Orkney. Fascinating history and archaeology within and outwith the city. A small city but it has a cathedral so it is a city….
Warm, friendly and welcoming folk and beautiful beaches….not far from the ancient Skara Brae: a village dated 5,000 years before the pyramids and showing signs of advanced civilisation, engineering techniques (drainange systems etc…..Best to go see for yourself. AND, you might be sufficiently fortunate as to catch an amazing display of the Aurora Borealis, while there.. 🙂
June no darkness: December, no daylight. Dawn and dusk merely intermingle mid summer and again in mid winter.
Go and enjoy the clean waters around these islands and DO go see the cathedral…..
You can’t go within a quarter of a mile radius in Orkney without finding something of phenomenal historic and archaeological interest. The flora and fauna and ornithology are wonderful too, some of each unique to the islands, as is the geology and sea life.
Seven tides meet in the Pentland Firth, across which the boats sail you into Stromness and Kirkwall, but poor sailors can fly in or take the wee short ferry crossing from John o Groats up Wick way, to South Ronaldsay. 🙂
Definitely enter it in next year’s contest. Nominations will open in February and you can catch updates on the tournament by signing up to my newsletter:
my toughest choice was Edinburgh vs Prague! There are both such amazing cities. In the end it had to be Edinburgh though.
