Should the 'in Europe' part in the sentence below have been placed after 'best place'.Sure I have no difficulty taking it in or what it's trying to convey but it may cause a bit trouble in smilar but far more complicated ones,and with the adverb of place being put at the end of the sentence,it may suggest that 'stars are in Europe' as well.
What would you think of it?
Thanks in advance.
'Scottish Park to be named as the best place to gaze at stars in Europe.'

You are quite right to notice that the way it is now, it sounds like the stars are in Europe.
I think it's generally best to keep phrases as close as possible to the words they are associated with.
