Most City administrators will always argue that their city is the most beautiful, the greatest city of them all and I do not blame them for believing that. But the truth is that most cities aren’t exactly what would be called beautiful and the term ‘concrete jungle’ doesn’t conjure up visions of paradise.
However, there are cities that prove it’s possible to be big, bold AND beautiful though, as this list of the 5 most beautiful metropolises on the planet shows.
1. Cape Town, South Africa.
Cape Town is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. Slowly rotating cable cars climb to the mountain’s flat top, from which there are sweeping views of the city, the busy harbor and boats heading for Robben Island in Table Bay. The notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela is now a living museum.
