Top Ten Best Capital Cities

The Top Ten

1 Islamabad 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.

It is a beautiful city

2 London London London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south eastern part of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia.

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

London because it

3 Paris Paris

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. :-))

Was pleasantly surprised by my visit to Paris the people were much nicer than I thought. Versailles was amazing want to go back

5 Berlin 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!

Lots of museums, cultural landmarks and very modern at the same time

6 Ottawa 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!

Whoever put Islamabad on the list I want to tell you it's not a good capital it's like the worst.Firstly Ottawa is very good and secondly New Delhi is very good.I love my city Ottawa as well as my country Canada and I like New Delhi and India too. Islamabad is not the best capital

8 Rome 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!

Surprised that Rome is not number 1. The history and culture this city has is unbelievable. This city has it all, good weather, good food, awesome people. If you want museums full of art and sculptures you got it. You want party? you got it. You want beaches? Drive about 50 minutes and you got it. Other amazing cities are close by, like Naples only 2h drive south, Florence 3h drive north.

I don't think any other capital city, at least in Europe, has as many things to see and do as Rome.

ROMA CAPUT MUNDI!

9 Copenhagen 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 ...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

Stupid dull city, racist and rude people. Why it's here? It should not even touch the top 30.

Fantastic capital. Top10 world at least

How could CPH not make it to the top 10?! This is the most awesome capital in the whole world! - dkfan24

11 Madrid Madrid

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

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

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.

In my opinion the greatest in the world. Amazing

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

New Delhi has the historical monuments coolest places in India.

Yes, New Delhi provides you a long lasting impression... here in New Delhi people comes form the different different part of the world, its spicy food and many more

16 Canberra

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.

Nice place but unfriendly people

17 Edinburgh

By far the most beautiful city on this list near to wonderful nature and great entertainment. Good food and lovely people will always go back again and again

Beautiful city full of history wonderful architecture. And very safe.

18 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.

Beautiful city but the people are very rude and unfriendly. I have bèn in 20 different countries and the Austrian people are by far the nastiest I have ever met

19 Bangkok

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

Beautiful beach and friendly people. The land of smile

20 Seoul Seoul Seoul – officially the Seoul Special City – is the capital and largest metropolis of the Republic of Korea, forming the heart of the Seoul Capital Area, which includes the surrounding Incheon metropolis and Gyeonggi province, the world's 14th largest city and second largest metropolitan area.

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. !
