What do Baghdad, New York and Rome have in common?
Kaj imajo skupnega Bagdad, New York in Rim?
Rome is the capital of Italy, Baghdad is the capital of Iraq, but New York is not a capital city any more. It was the 1st capital of the States (between 1785 and 1790).
The capital of the USA is Washington D.C., and it is in the states of Virginia and Maryland. Washington D.C. became the capital because the Americans wanted to have their capital city in the "middle" of the USA (at the time all the states were along the eastern coast).
Rome is in Italy, Europe and about 48 million tourists visit it every year. The most visited city in Europe is London. London is also 2nd most popular tourist destination in the world. Iraq is in Western Asia, specifically the Middle East. The most visited place in Asia is Bangkok – with about 16 million international visitors per year. New York comes 1st in the States and 'only' 5th in the world, but 1st on the amount of money people spend there – about $18,6 billion.
For almost five hundred years, Rome was the largest, wealthiest, and most politically important city in Europe. Its population passed one million people by the end of the 1st century BC. Baghdad was the largest city in the world from shortly after its foundation in 762 AD until the 930s, with some estimates putting its population at over one million. In 1950, New York City was the only urban area in the world with a population of over 10 million.
