A full list of world capitals, including photos for each city. If you're looking for a list of capital cities around the world, this is it! #Geography #TravelLooking for a list of world capitals? You’re in the right place!

But first – I have to apologize in advance for this very, very nerdtastic post. Here’s the truth though: once upon a time, it was my dream to memorize ALL the world capitals on Earth. I grew up practically hugging a world globe (this exact one, actually) and duh, one of my most prized possessions these days is my scratchable world map, which satisfies my wanderlust & (borderline troubling) love for scratch cards, all in one satisfying swoop.

So yes, ambitious young me somehow thought it would be “cool” to one day memorize all the capital cities of the world. And while my definition of “cool hasn’t really improved much (after all, last year I literally wrote a list of pickup lines for every single world country), I thought it was time to do a different kind of roundup… this time, a compilation of ALL the world capitals (with photos to boot).

The most fascinating thing about this world is its diversity, which is what made this post SO much fun to put together… I hope you enjoy this visual tour through all the world’s capital cities 🙂 Because I haven’t (yet) visited all these capitals for myself, the majority of these photos are sourced from Creative Commons websites or Flickr… that said, a few of mine did sneak in there. Can you guess which ones? 😉

Anyways, you must be wondering: what are all the capitals in the world? Well, here is a complete list of world capitals for all the 196 independent countries of the world as recognized by the United Nations. Scroll further down to see all the photos… I promise they’re cool to see! Enjoy.

Tell me in the comments: How many world capitals have you been to?

The capital of Andorra is Andorra la Vella. Besides its super pretty name, Andorra la Vella happens to be a bustling destination for winter tourism because of its ski resort. Plus, at over 1000m above ground, it’s the highest capital in Europe.

Angola

The capital of Angola is Luanda, the country’s chief port. Some call it “the Paris of Africa” for its sophisticated culture, and it has consistently topped lists as the most expensive city for expats in the entire world.

Antigua and Barbuda

The capital of Antigua and Barbuda is Saint John’s, where you’ll apparently find epic Carnival festivities during the summer from the end of July til the first Tuesday of August, when there’s a biiiig parade to celebrate.

St John's

Armenia

The capital of Armenia is Yerevan, nicknamed “The Pink City” for the colour of the stone used in buildings throughout the city. Also fun fact (not world capital related, but still) – chess is a mandatory subject in Armenian schools!

Australia

The capital of Australia is Canberra, not Sydney as many people wrongfully assume! Canberra is the country’s largest inland city and known as “the Bush capital” due to its location amongst the nature and mountains.

Austria

The capital of Austria is Vienna. Random but very fun fact: Vienna is where the snow globe was invented back in 1900. Basically Erwin Perzy (a fine instruments mechanic) was trying to make a light bulb glow brighter by adding water and semolina flakes… which didn’t make a brighter bulb, but a pretty and iconic new decoration! In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful world capitals on Earth.

Bahrain

The capital of Bahrain is Manama. Apparently one of their main districts is called “Hoora” (like, hoorah!!!) and that’s where a lot of the city’s nightlife is. This fact brings me great joy.

Juffair



Bangladesh

The capital of Bangladesh is Dhaka. Fun fact: Dhaka is known as the rickshaw capital of the world (with over 800,000 rickshaw pullers in the city).
