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!

3 New York, 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.

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.

They don't call it the "center of the world" for nothing. Plus, it's an economic powerhouse with the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ.

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

The world capital should be this, London, or Tokyo.

4 Paris, France 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 more.

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.

5 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.
6 Oslo, Norway
7 Berlin, Germany

Once at par with the largest cities in Europe, Berlin had to experience the misfortune of becoming the battleground of empires.

Berlin is 1 of the best In europe

Best city.
friendly people
great nightlife

love Berlin

8 Moscow, Russia

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

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

I think Putin would agree.

9 Sydney, Australia

The most beautiful modern city in the world

I like sydney that's why

10 Edinburgh, Scotland
The Contenders
11 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.

12 Rome, Italy

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

13 Dublin, Ireland
14 Bergen, Norway
15 Olympia, Greece
16 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.

17 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!

18 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 should be at least among the top three.

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."

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
