The Moulin Rouge in Paris comes in second with a disappointing score of 92%. Visitors describe the site as ‘inspiring’.

Visitors described it as “5% old steel structure, 5% flashing LED lights, and 90% desks.” Although unpopular, the Atomium is an important landmark of Belgium, built for the 1958 World Exhibition in Brussels.
