I like this thread since I have been wondering what other cities I might want to visit someday. How about adding these for comparison?

Prague vs Budapest

Vienna vs Salzburg

Casablanca vs. Marrakech


These are the only ones I have a clear preference/know enough about. Astana looks cool, like a space age city in the middle of the Steppes. BA looks like a beautiful city.

You created an interesting theme/pattern for this city rivalries! I noticed plenty of them are for cities in the same country competition, and also for some others cities in bordering countries.

That is why I mentioned those examples because they go with that pattern/theme too.

I also would go for Amsterdam instead of Brussels. However, Brussels seem great too. I also pick Buenos Aires compared to Santiago.

I think I would pick Tel Aviv instead of Jerusalem but that is almost a tie.

For Almaty vs. Astana, it is almost a tie but I think I would go for Almaty because it is much closer to other nearby countries, and near mountainous scenery. Astana is a bit too isolated in a vast flat steppe region in the middle of the country it is in.

This is the ones I pick for each pair:

Zurich vs. Geneva

Mumbai vs. Delhi

Tel Aviv vs. Jerusalem

Auckland vs. Wellington

Krakow vs. Warsaw

Glasgow vs. Edinburgh

Amsterdam vs. Brussels

Santiago vs. Buenos Aires

Almaty vs. Astana

Casablanca vs. Marrakech
