Top Ten Best Capital Cities

The Top Ten

Islamabad

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.

The most serene paradise on earth. Nature and modernity combined into one unique land called Islamabad. All foreigners who come here are awe struck by its beauty. A hidden gem that we hope stays uncontaminated for decades ahead.

London

In my opinion London is the capital in the world, and to the Parisians below me look at all of the "immigrants" sleeping in shanty towns and tents, London has also got more green spaces than New York and Paris so we can go outdoors more, London is also a hub more many businesses around the world come to London to do it. London has a diverse culture due to the British Empire which was once the world capital from a Indian takeaway to middle eastern cuisine London has it all. London also has some very beautiful architecture such as houses of parliament, Buckingham palace, the Shards, London Oprah house and West end and an arrange of nightclubs London dominates in night life as well.

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.

There is only one capital that London is similar to and that is Paris. London has everything from history, art, nature, science and modern day. There is always a mix of people. It is a beautiful city that the Romans found, similar to Paris.

'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

Paris Paris is the capital and most populous city of France, with an area of 105 square kilometres and an official estimated population of 2,140,526 residents as of 1 January 2019. Since the 17th century, Paris has been one of Europe's major centres of finance, diplomacy, commerce, fashion, science, and the ...read more.

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. :-))

London should NOT be in the top 50!
Full of gangs, drugs, guns and violence.
LOADS of shootings, stabbings and acid attacks every DAY!

Tokyo Tokyo, officially Tokyo Metropolis, one of the 47 prefectures of Japan, has served as the Japanese capital since 1869. As of 2018, the Greater Tokyo Area ranked as the most populous metropolitan area in the world.

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

Tokyo, Japan is an amazing city to live in and visit since there are so many things to do in this capital city and many job opportunities as well.

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

In the Japan itself it has proved its hardwork

Berlin

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!

Ottawa Ottawa is the capital city of Canada. It stands on the south bank of the Ottawa River in the eastern portion of Southern Ontario.

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!

I visited Ottawa in winter and it was amazing! The glittering snow on the towering Gothic turrets and the city is just yelling that it's friendly. I'm from Toronto which is about 5 hours away, but geez it's worth the visit. Ottawa by far is one of the nicest capitals on earth.

Washington, D.C.

Sure it has a high crime rate, but from 1995 to 2010 almost 50% percent of the crime lowered.

A great capitol city with impressive architecture

Incredible city with a very unique nightlife. A lot of interesting history packed into a fairly combat place. Strongly recommend.

Crime central.

Copenhagen Copenhagen is the capital of the Kingdom of Denmark. At a population of 591,481 inhabitants as of January 2016, it is also the largest city in the country. It is located in the Hovedstaden region of Denmark and is home to the world famous Tivoli Gardens, one of the oldest operating amusement parks in ...read more.

The city is beautiful but I hated my trip to the city because of it's people. Very rude, cold and unpolite unless you are blond like them. I went to Malmo and Stockholm and Oslo and the people are sparkling happy and talkative, pride to help, to give an information... As a tourist I felt the racism and xenophobia in Copenhagen several times in one week as I never felt even just one time while visiting Russia for one entire month for example. I was counting so much the days to get out of the country that I changed my plans and went for 3 days to Malmo by train, just to get out of there. Was a great decision I made, loved Malmo people... I imagine how it would be with me in a daily basis to live in Copenhagen. By the way I am (or I thought I was) European (I'm Portuguese), with white skin but black hair and eyes. For just 2 times I found myself needing information and no one even stopped to listen to me with a city map in the hand. In the restaurants and coffee I went, I found the same, ...more

Copenhagen has everything from clean air, shopping, art to wild nightlife. The city never sleeps and contains beautifull danish people in it

No Danish people are probably the most kind people in the world even though I'm not danish I'm a tourist(13) year old I thought that if u wanna see smiles then go there. Just meet the local residents and then you'll see how great they are and those rude people u see are tourists as well who come for vocations and then stay there for longer illegally

It's the best okay

Athens

This city is so beautiful, friendly people, great food and great culture but Athens is very dirty. But I love this city some much I know it's dirty but doesn't matter. It has lots of beautiful culture and history

It's a lovely city I think it should be higher in the list because of the amazing climate, the museums, the safety it provides to you and the great food.

A must see before you die...

Agree with the dude who said a must see before you die.Athens is not only damn gorgeous but it hss also amazing friendly people gorgeous girls and great food.Its also very safe.

Rome

Rome is wonderful city, which I have visited. It is wonderful to see such great constructions and historical legacy Rome have, especially the monuments speaks their history and culture

Most beautiful capital in the world

Birthplace of the roman empire, church, so much history! Totally amazing!

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.

The Contenders

New Delhi New Delhi is the capital and seat of government of India. It is also a municipality and district in Delhi and serves as the seat of Government of Delhi.

I am amazed it sits are 11, it should be 111, it is a polluted city and way behind many in Asia and nothing fashionable about it.

Been to London, Dublin, Paris, Istanbul, Vienna, Amsterdam, Belfast etc but Islamabad absolutely shocked me..it is much more beautiful and nicer people than New Delhi.

Such planned, broad streets coupled with parks all over the capital city, make New Delhi one of the best capital cities in the world! And yeah, not to forget the city's world-class metro system and the fabulous airport!

New Delhi in this List 1st Number Because Islamabad is not 1st Number

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)

Madrid

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

Pretty but dirty and everyone smokes so it smells bad

Madrid is cool, but would not be in my top 10. I lived in Madrid for 14 years and it doesn't have as much to offer as other cities (other than party and some monuments) in my opinion.

Latest among the European capitals, dates only from the sixteenth century. Lacking in History, just like a new-town.

Moscow

Old city with long history and lots of skyscrapers!

Awful people, gangsters, skinheads...

Best place with the best women

Amazing city with a lots of old and modern things

Stockholm Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and the most populous urban area in the Nordic countries; 962,154 people live in the municipality, approximately 1.5 million in the urban area, and 2.3 million in the metropolitan area.

I lived in Stockholm for a year, it's a very safe and friendly place

Rather overrated and boring. People reserved and very expensive give me london any day

Number one its beautiful, low crime rate, and clean as hell what more do you need.

Nice people and a beautiful city!

Canberra

Fun fact: Melbourne and Sydney got in a dispute over which city should be capital in the early 20th Century. So some people built a smaller city (Canberra) right between the two and said "Chill guys, neither of you get to be the capital, this place between you is". I think I quoted that word for word.

Pretty good, as long as you don't break the law. Break the law and your ife will be a living hell, if you even get to live.

Canberra is an amazing beautiful city that I visited a week ago I couldn't believe my eyes

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

Oslo

Born there, very safe, welcoming people and no racism

Free university if anyone wants to go ���"

In the previous comment I wanted to say BORN instead of burn :D

Visited Oslo for the first time in the Summer of 2013. I had no idea of what I was going to find or see there and I never planed a visit to this town. The only thing about Norway I knew was the group A-ha and that they have the Fjords. So then one friend invited me to go with him and I said yes and bought the ticket and just went without any expectation. I was amazed by the polite people since the airport workers, train workers, bus workers, people in the buses very talkative (loudly by the way). This feeling of happyness was wonderful and it would be already a good reason to love this charming and almost unknown town... but there are many things to love about Oslo: good vibration of it's people, amazing new archtecture, old colorful wood houses perfectly preserved, wonderful restaurants, cleanliness of it's streets, ""forest, river and waterfall" in the middle of the town! (clean river by the way - very rare to see in any capital of the world). If there is a place on ...more

Vienna

Vienna should be in the top 10. Friendly, safe, clean, historical, worlds capitol for classic music, according to MERCER index the best city to live in the world, architecture like Paris and, thank god, without the French

Very beautiful, safe and clean place.

The most beautiful city I have ever seen! It's really hard to find ugly building.

Very beautiful, excellent life style, safe and clean.

Bangkok Bangkok is the capital and most populous city of Thailand. It is known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon or simply Krung Thep.

It might not be the most beautiful capital but I think Bangkok has its own charm and filled of endless things to do.

#1 in Southeast Asia! This is SEA's Powerful Tiger City!

Beautiful beach and friendly people. The land of smile

Beautiful culture and anything for good life

Amsterdam

Beautiful, human scale city, excellent public transport, excellent for cycling, Van Gogh and Rembrandt paintings, beautiful people and lots of joy of living. Should bee the second better capital

World capital of art. Within 1 sq. Kilometer all the top museums of the world. Scenic canals, great restaurants and lovely people!

Comfortable city, beautiful historic city with a safe village feel.

Lovely town old and full of history. Very kind helpful people can't wait to visit again

Budapest

Beautiful city, friendly people, good food and excellent Hungarian wine

The most Beautiful City where I was!

Budapest = classical music. Don't miss the Art Deco style Academy of Music and the Opera!

Countless gorgeous spas, best thermal waters on the Continent!

Wellington

More coffee shops per capital than New York! You've got a beach, you've walking trails, you've got charming people. So metropolitan but also a real sense of community. WELLY, I LOVE YOU

Great place to live or visit, with tourist attractions worthy of visiting. Friendly people that are always up for helping anyone who needs it.

Beautiful city, beautiful people and a relaxed environment

New Zealand is a amazing country and Wellington is the most wonderful capital among all countries.

Buenos Aires

I'm Brazilian and I love this city! I was mind blown when I first visited there, indeed it is the Paris of South America, people there are beautiful too! Both men and women, amazing place!

It's amazing.. Beautiful people, amazing food, great views

Best capital you'll ever see.

Best capital city in worldy

Brasilia

Moving and good nightlife a

Unique architecture!

Cairo

Beautiful city and great food. People are very kind and friendly and everyone knows each other. The only time people fight is when they are driving. You hear the athan from the Masjid in your house. Tourism JUST NEVER ENDS. It's a lot more than just the pyramids. People are always lively and they play music so loud in the streets at 2 am. Only flaw is the trash everywhere and the pollution.

Cairo isn't very good it's dangerous and lots of ignorance

Prague

One of the most beautiful cities in the world. It's great! The castle on the hill, you fell like in fairytail, when you are coming on Old Town Square and beautiful Charles Bridge with statues... I love Prague!

I've traveled all over Europe, the Americas and the Middle East... Prague is hands down the most magical and gorgeous city in the developed world

Worlds most beautiful city

Awesome city
