ST VALENTINE’S DAY is looming and many singletons will be left wondering, “where in the world is the best place to find love?”
If those looking for love live in Spain, they’re in luck.

The top two places in the world turn out to be Madrid and Barcelona.
Wethrift found there are hundreds of reasons for singles to be mad for Madrid, with 733 romantic restaurants and 714 nightlife options across the capital.
Additionally, the city is home to 23 adult shops and 45 ‘hour hotels’, meaning Madrid is truly the best for a ‘quick(ie) visit’.
Spain’s second city, Barcelona, also came second in the research.
The price of date was considered good value,with the average price of two cinema tickets costing €18,00 and average date night meal valued at €50,00.
Additionally, there are a total of 785 romantic restaurants where couples can sample the gastronomic delights of Catalonia, as well as each other.

With third place getting filled by Berlin, fourth place is taken by Rome.
London and Paris tie for fifth place, with London offering more speed dating opportunities than any other European city.
