A travel book publisher has said that Nottingham is one of the world's top city destinations for 2010.
Dorling Kindersley believe it is largely down to Ridley Scott's Robin Hood film which is released to the world in May.
The publisher also cites the arrival of arts centre Nottingham Contemporary as a further reason to visit the city.
Alongside Nottingham as the ten places to see are Istanbul in Turkey, Oslo in Norway and Boston in the USA.
The film was shot in the UK, mostly in Pembrokeshire National Park in Wales, Bourne Wood in Surrey and Pinewood Studios, Buckinghamshire.
A local tourism leader expects huge benefits for Robin Hood county.
Mike Balcon, from Experience Nottinghamshire, said: "The research we've done shows that visitors are more likely to visit the locations portrayed in the film rather than those that are actually used for the film itself."
Nottingham Contemporary opened its doors in November 2009
Robin Hood is released in the UK in May 2010.
The city's new arts centre Nottingham Contemporary, designed by architects Caruso St John, have had 43,737 visitors since opening on Saturday, 14 November (correct to Friday, 18 December, 2009).
The other cities chosen by publishers Dorling Kindersley are Delhi in India, Nara in Japan, Tel Aviv in Israel, Valparaiso in Chile, Vancouver in Canada and the Icelandic capital Reykjavik.
