The Russian city ranked last in a number of categories, including "friendliest locals".
Tokyo was the most highly decorated world city, ranking number one for best taxi services, friendliest taxi drivers, best public transportation, cleanest streets and safety.
New York City took out the top gong for shopping, but travellers felt the city's streets could use a sweep with the Big Apple ranking 28 out of 40 for cleanliness.
