Top Ten Cities That Deserve to Be the World Capital

There are hundreds of megacities around the world, This list shows cities with the best-Wealth, GDP, Public Transport, Crime Rate, Facilities and some others.

The Top Ten

London, United Kingdom

Well, actually you tried to (and still are trying to) do it. There are not even 30 countries in the world UK didn't try to conquer. Just a fact. I'm not against UK at all, but most people who tried to obtain power usually didn't govern accurately. I wouldn't vote as capital city any of the cities of the "Developed Countries" but I'd rather choose one of the countries that are emerging. In fact, I don't think there should even be a World Capital, for that could create a centralization that could lead to inequity and confront. Politics is complex as it's almost impossible to satisfy everyone.

Sorry about the partiality with the developing and the developed nations, but you cannot guarantee that at one stage the developing nations will be more developed than the previously developed nations.

Are you developed under developed or nearly developed or over developed. Or are you still unsure of your development.

Best city in the world bar none, something for everyone here.

Tokyo, Japan 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.

Tokyo has been the capital of Japan for more than 400 years and been peaceful. it has by far more tradition and technology than any other cities has. It also has energy to create new things.

Considering Imperialist Japan's ambitions was to make it the world capital, ironic.

The largest City in The World can be the World Capital!

This should be number 1!

New York, United States

It doesn't. You'll regret it. You'd hate it there. It's already over crowded, dirty, full of crime, etc pick some other place

When people think of big cities New York City is what that comes to mind.

It does deserve to be capital. You won't regret it. You'll love it there. It's not actually as crowded, dirty, or crime-filled as some naysayers say.

NYC should be the capital of the world because it is he largest city in the most powerful country in he world

Paris, France

Paris is economically one of the three strongest cities in the world, bustling with economic activities and also a "Grand" and beautifully made city thanks to Napoléon III & Haussmann. Paris as a city also has the second largest revenue amongst it's companies at around 1.4 trillion USD per year.

This makes Paris the second strongest city in the world just behind Tokyo.

The district of La Defense is the fist is the largest business district in all of Europe and the first in term of number of skylines among the most famous.

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.

I don't think there should be a world capital since cities are horrid that is why there should more suburbs on this list.

I think that it is a bit too small to be the world capital

Hong Kong, China Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is an autonomous territory on the eastern side of the Pearl River estuary in East Asia.

Love it!

Berlin, Germany

Hitler once made it the greatest city in Europe, but imperialists did nothing to develop it.

Berlin is 1 of the best In europe

Best city.
friendly people
great nightlife

love Berlin

Oslo, Norway
Moscow, Russia

I think Putin would agree.

Yes, just to put America down to be honest, east should've won the Cold War

No offense, but seriously? Moscow? The
Whole world would be screwed then!

Umm... You do realize that Moscow IS the capital of Russia?

Sydney, Australia

I like sydney that's why

The most beautiful modern city in the world

Edinburgh, Scotland

The Newcomers

? Aarhus, Denmark
? Trondheim, Norway

The Contenders

Glasgow, Scotland

Yes, Glasgow is certainly one of the most famous capital en the world and in the top 3 in Europe.
Also Scotland is known for its famous castles, beaches and food.

Rome, Italy

Rome is a dirty city, chaotic and Italian are among the worst people in the world and certainly the most lazy, arrogant, rude, obsolete of western Europe.

They tried that already, but then they dropped the ball and got beat up by some goth kids.

Rome dominated parts of 3 continents before, so 7 continents shouldn't be too hard.

Rome is one of the most beautiful cities of the world for its rich architecture and beautiful monuments and more

Dublin, Ireland
Bergen, Norway
Olympia, Greece
Shanghai, China Shanghai is one of the four municipalities under the direct administration of the central government of the People's Republic of China, the largest city in China by population, and the second most populous city proper in the world, with a population of 24.18 million as of 2017. It is a global financial more.

This would be the best choice. It is about halfway between America and Europe. It's the largest city in the world, bar none (within city limits). It's not the capital of anything else. It's on the edge of China, on the sea, so it could easily be detached from that country to form a Federal District. China has more than a billion people, the detachment of Shanghai would not even put a dent in them. It is a modern and prosperous city, and it already has an international ambience. This would be the best capital for Earth.

It should be the capital of china, No joke Shanghai should really be a capital of china

The financial capital of Asia and soon the world!

Beautiful, clean and green City.

Toronto, Canada Toronto is the most populous city in Canada, the provincial capital of Ontario, and the centre of the Greater Toronto Area, the most populous metropolitan area in Canada.

Toronto deserves to be the capital instead of Ottawa!

The most idyllic western city ever!

Seoul, South Korea 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.

Always the best...

Istanbul, Turkey Istanbul, formerly known as Byzantium and Constantinople, is the most populous city in Turkey and the country's economic, cultural and historic center.

Istanbul was every time the world capital in history. Byzantine - Roman - Ottoman Empire. On the world map its excatly in the center of Europe, Asia and Africa, the only city on 2 continents, multicultural, over 20 million population, historical buldings from every empire, centre of christians, jews and muslims in history etc.etc.

Istanbul is already called the capital of the world. A city where Europe and Asia meet

Istanbul is the hub of world between east and west

Istanbul should be at least among the top three.
Istanbul (once called Byzantion, Nova Roma, Constantinople, etc.) was the capital city of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, meanwhile it is the primate city of Turkey. The city literally bridges the gap between the continents of Europe and Asia.
Even the world's economical center of gravity is shifting towards the Pacific, Istanbul's geopoliticial importance still remains thanks to the Bosphorus Strait.
Many people have admired the city's unique location. Napoléon Bonaparte is quoted as saying, "If the Earth were a single state, Constantinople would be its capital."

Beijing, China


New Delhi, India 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.

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 more.
