Travel experts at Paris Ticket & Tours analysed the total number of proposal-related hashtags, including #capitalproposal and #capitalengagement, for each European capital. The final ranking was then determined by the capitals with the highest hashtag volumes.

Magdalena Petrusic, a travel expert at Paris Tickets & Tours:

“Proposing abroad has always been such a romantic and sought-after experience, which is why it’s so fascinating to observe which European capitals are the most popular for popping that all-important question. While it’s surprising that Paris does not top the list, given the capital’s well-known association with romance, this study demonstrates how social media trends can sway a ranking. It will be interesting to see how these capitals place on this list in a few years’ time.”
