Top 10 Cities Around the World That Should Be the Capital of Their Country

I have not visited any other country. I live in a suburb in Nottingham, Bingham.

The Top Ten

1 New York City, United States New York City, United States The City of New York, often called New York City or simply New York, is the most populous city in the United States.

New York should not be the US capital. The District of Columbia was created to keep the capital more centrally located and separate from a major city like NY, Philadelphia, or Boston. NY being the capital would put it at risk for more terrorist attacks, protests, and political disputes that come with being a capital city. New York is the greatest city in the world and shouldn't be plagued by politics.

No, just no

2 Toronto, Canada Toronto, Canada Toronto is the capital of the Canadian province of Ontario. It is located within the Golden Horseshoe in Southern Ontario on the northern shore of Lake Ontario.

Toronto is the economic and cultural capital of Canada so naturally it deserves to be the political capital as well.

Many people think Toronto is the capital - Metal_Treasure

Ottawa is the capital for being in between Quebec and Ontario

3 Istanbul, Turkey
4 Frankfurt, Germany
5 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
6 Milan, Italy

No, Rome was once the capital of the world and is one of the most historically significant cities in the world. Also, Italy is not that old of a country, and there are many differences between the north and the south. Rome is in a great central location that connects the two parts of the country.

No, Rome makes perfect sense as the capital of Italy, considering its history. - clusium

7 Sydney, Australia
8 Amsterdam, Netherlands

This is the capital

9 Nottingham, United Kingdom

Once upon many moons ago, Northampton held the title as Capital of England. - Britgirl

10 Seattle, United States Seattle, United States Seattle is a seaport city on the west coast of the United States. It is the seat of King County, Washington.

The capital should remain in Washington, DC as DC was specially created for that purpose and fulfills it well. Even if the capital was to be moved, it should be moved to a more central location or a location with greater world influence. New York is where the capital would be if it weren't DC. After New York, probably Philadelphia or Chicago. They both have more influence and are better located than Seattle.

The Contenders

11 Dubai, United Arab Emirates Dubai, United Arab Emirates
12 Abidjan, Ivory Coast
13 Hamburg, Germany
14 Montreal, Canada

Considering how important it is in the world, how many tourists it gets, how historic it is, how much impact it has on Canada, and how superior it is to Ottawa, it is easily worthy of Canadian capital

This city needs a lot more recognition, it's a very important city over the world, yet it remains kinda unknown

15 Tel Aviv, Israel
16 Jerusalem, Israel Jerusalem, Israel Jerusalem is a city in the Middle East, located on a plateau in the Judaean Mountains between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea.
