Top Ten Best Capital Cities

The Top TenXW

1Islamabad

It is an amazing;highly developed and absolutely safe capital city, but also regarded as one of the best capitals in Asia and can be competed with any glorious capital city in the world - even from a highly developed country. There is no doubt that international developments are rapidly appearing in nearly every corner of the city. Its unique and awe-inspiring surrounding makes it more than a capital! If compared with Delhi (capital of India) it will surely win. Each and every Pakistani should pleased with such a world-class capital, despite the financial crisis political and religious conflicts, vulnerability to terrorism across the country and several other issues. Thus making a Pakistani proud for what he/she has

I love this city I search in Internet for this city is so beautiful I have never been there always wanna be there but I live in London it is in Pakistan I have heard that Pakistan is so beautiful place to visit I love this country always wanna be there I love there national anthem as well I can't understand in there language but the translation is so beautiful

Clean and green, peaceful and quiet with all sorts of places to go to and all sorts of activities to do.

I love Islamabad pak

2London

London has more history and it's landmarks are recognised throughout the world. It's one of the world's top financial cities and at the height of the British Empire it was the most powerful city in the world.

London is the natural and totally apt international cosmopolitan capital of the cultural world. No other city can come close to the historical, cultural diversity, architectural, commercial, financial and internationally connected hub that London is. It spans the globe and belongs to everyone on the planet!

'When a man is tired of London! He is tired of life' - You can find almost anything and anyone (one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world, anyone from any country will surely find a restaurant or shop or community centre belonging to theirs), there's constantly new things opening here and new areas to explore (I. E dalston and Stratford being redeveloped), there's something for everyone and it's so easy to get around with the underground transport, this is also where much of the world has been ruled and developed from historically and where so much has and will happen

Its very nice and pretty like my mom.

3Tokyo

Incredibly safe and clean, amazing foods, fashion, arts, sophisticated cultures, you are just spoiled for choices.

Beautiful city with both modern and traditional part nice people and food

Tokyo is the most incredible city in the World. Fashionable, a mix between crazy fashion, sexy fashion and Business fashion. You are most likely to meet really good looking people, from Japanese to other nationalities, models and rich people everywhere and the technology is just BY FAR way better then anywhere else. LOVE Tokyo

I have been there and liked it, the people are nice, the culture is nice, relatively clean, safe, food is nice, technologically advanced, smart, and unique. Tokyo has the mix of traditionally Japanese and modern into a package of cool city that I like.

4Paris

Paris is for sure the most beautiful city in the world, and has so much landmarks! If I were a country, it would be the 11th economy in the world! Paris is strong on all fronts and is therefor the world's best capital city

Beatiful architecture, few eyesores, great atmosphere

Splendid city, architectures from ages to modern building, among the most numerous cathedrals and Churches, abundance of all kinds of restaurants offering top international cuisine and of course French one.

So many theaters, exhibitions, festivals etc... And that also through the country France. :-))

For people who are complaining about graffiti it's just part of urban art, Paris take a turn to the future, and street and urban arts have to be considered as arts.

5Berlin

Even after being completely destructed during the 2nd world war in 1945, still city like Berlin was able to rise up and include itself amongst the topmost earning and the busiest capitals of the world.

So much history and very nice people, I would say this is by far better than London as it is safe and not full of drug smugglers who want to mug you. There is a diverse culture, many museums and fantastic architecture. So vote for the best!

One of the best city I have ever been!

Best city I have been too! Amazing culture, great history, people are friendly, lots to see and do. Great public transport, mega cheap for a capital city, easy to get around and amazing nightlife! So much more I could say!

6Ottawa

Ottawa is magnificent. The Neo Gothic Parliament Buildings are second to none. The Parliament Buildings are situated on Parliament Hill, on a precipice overlooking the Ottawa River and Province of Quebec across the river. Ottawa has some of the best "green belt" parks of any city in the world, let alone a capital city. It is a compact city, easy for walking. In the winter, it is glorious to skate on the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO Heritage Site. Is amazing to see civil servants, with their long coats, suits, ties and brief cases, skating to work on the Rideau Canal. Where else in the world would one see this? Amazing. In May the tulip festival is also worth a visit. The tulips are an annual gift from The Netherlands in thanks for Canada harbouring Queen Juliana, who gave birth to one of her daughters while in exile during WW2 in Ottawa. The Dutch have never forgotten. Ironically, it was the Canadian army that liberated most of Holland in WW2. In the summer, there is Chamberfest, an annual ...more

Its perfect! Good night life, world class museums, many land marks, great places for site seeing, great food and culture. Also it's not a concrete city, balancing nature with the city, a great place to visit in all seasons

Beautiful Ottawa

Amazing place, can't be beat. The best part is enjoying a nice crisp winter day in ottawa!

Ottawa has a great museum too.

9Rome

Dirty, dark, chaotic, noisy, outdated, aging, obsolete, overpriced. Hotel offers are among the most expensive and the stars mean here nothing, a palace in Rome, and Italy as a matter of fact, is really less comfortable than a basic Holidays In. Food are just basic and impossible to east Indian, Japanese (Asian in general), Spanish or even French. Therefore at the end we cut our stay to visit some other better European countries. And also main point, Italian people are extremely unfriendly.

11Madrid

Amazing nightlife, amazing culture, amazing art, amazing people! Number 1 for me and I am from Barcelona.

Just amazing! A beautiful city were history is in the air, it's also remarkable that it was the most powerful city in the world during the Spanish Empire. Best gastronomy on the whole globe. Full of museum, amazing monuments and one of europe's biggest parks, the Parque del Retiro, with statues and a big pond with little boats on it. A modern, metropolitan city where tradition and modernity are combined wisely.

Very nice city with lots of contrasts between old buildings and modern structures. Very interesting

14New Delhi

New Delhi has the historical monuments coolest places in India.

This should be first because this is the only city to have thousands of visiting places. This is 12th beautiful capital in the world. It has many monuments to visit! (It has 195 monuments)

The only city in the world to have a long historical background even before Buddha was born

Can't believe and number 1 - vivek0305

15Canberra

Is actually the capital of Australia, not Sydney, which seems to be higher rated in this list.

The dumbass who put Sydney on the list obviously knows nothing about Australia. THIS is the capital city, not Sydney!

Canberra is certainly one of the most amazing capital cities in the world in terms of wealth, education, security and environment.

I love this country

Seoul is the best I went there it is amazing

Seoul is the a bit underesteemed treated as unpopular city but if you go over and experience there, you might turn your impresson of it. It combines varaity of shopping that has many products to choose, sightseeing that is unique not a spectacular but breeze on spring and autumn season and exotic night cultures... Etc. Try to go there! It's treasure under the sea. !
