A Few Rule Changes This Year
This annual contest that takes place over the course of March is no stranger to controversy but your suggestions after last year’s Romanian repeat made me think a change in the format was appropriate. This year, entries will be grouped by region so that cities from the same country will compete against each other in the early rounds.
The Best City To Visit Travel Tournament is a round robin style competition, with voting every week during the month of March. I’ll take the first 64 cities you nominate, which will be halved every round by your votes.

Last year I was incredibly fortunate to meet the reasons Craiova, Romania was The Best City to Visit in 2014. No city is too small or little traveled to advance far in the tournament, all you need is a passionate following.
