World Capitals
In All Continents and Countries


I love to write about World Capitals. In the world of tourism, that has been part of my life for more than fifty years, it has been very helpful.

But many countries have somewhat unknown capitals and very big and important cities that people think is the capital and it is not. The countries presented here is as per the list of the United Nations for Independent Countries only.

We are going to list the capitals by countries and by continents, so you can find them alphabetically and then as the site progresses we are going to develop pages for each one of them. Or let’s say most of them.
