Chester in England has been crowned “the most beautiful city” in the world.

The result of an in-depth study of images of the most attractive cities in the world sought to find the “most beautiful”, the researchers have compiled a standard beauty score for buildings.

After scanning 2,500 images of buildings and skylines to bring them into line with the ‘golden ratio’, the report landed on a small market town in North West England.

Not Rome, not Paris, but the provincial colony of less than 80,000 people.

And it was all “according to science,” says Online Mortgage Advisor.

“The Golden Ratio (1:1,618) reflects a set of proportions that have puzzled and studied by mathematicians for millennia,” the report states.

The golden ratio has been described as the “formula of beauty” and mathematical symmetry. It is found in paintings, music, and even the natural world.

And now he’s been found in Chester.

The charming city on the River Dee was found to be 0.4% more in line with the golden ratio than Venice – the second most beautiful city according to the study.

It received a beauty score of 83.7, for the highest percentage of buildings lined up for viewing pleasure.

Other aesthetically appealing cities featured in the study were London in third place with 83%, Belfast with 82.9% and Rome whose timeless beauty is pleasing at 82% in line with the golden ratio.

New York was the highest rated city in the United States with a ratio of 77.7 in alignment with the beauty of the golden ratio. The “beauty scores” were calculated by measuring the buildings and finding the proportion of the longest and shortest lengths of its dimensions.

“Using a famous mathematical concept, we analyzed thousands of buildings around the world to find out,” the mortgage consultant said.

Local tourist board VisitCheshire.com was understandably delighted to be in the same beauty category as Venice and Paris.

“The ancient city is a truly breathtaking experience,” said the provincial tourism marketing office, which praised the city’s Roman amphitheater and medieval stone carvings.

The study sample was generated from randomly selected buildings using Google Street View. Although the dataset was not released, it was pointed out that the UK company had analyzed many more local towns, which could have affected the rankings. The Derby-based company was only 90km from Cheshire to Venice.

Perhaps the beauty lies less in the golden ratio and more in the eye of the beholder, but there are some attractive sights in the British Isles.

St. Paul’s Cathedral in London was recently named the most beautiful building in the world, according to the same principle of the golden ratio.

The Roofing Megastore study found that the cathedral aligned 72.28% on the gold radio, followed by Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
