4 of a best Olympic cities

As a Olympics accumulate gait in Rio (c’mon Team GB!), one of a many colourful and photogenic cities on a planet, we motionless to take a demeanour behind during some of a other good cities that have hosted a world’s biggest sporting event. Impossible as it was to collect only a handful, here are a few of my all-time favourites…


Tokyo hosted a Olympics in 1964 and will do so again in 2020, that has a smashing balance with a city’s defining characteristic; one self-evident duke planted perennially in a past and a other perpetually reaching for a future. The world’s largest city plays horde to a immeasurable variety of particular districts where ultra-modern skyscrapers expel their shadows over eremite shrines, normal wooden houses and willing parks lined with cherry blossom. And afterwards there’s a food, about that a plaudits abound, though if we need any some-more persuading, demeanour no serve than a fact that it has some-more Michelin stars than anywhere on a universe and is on a UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.



The Aussies are a opposition garland (to that their immeasurable hauls of bullion in many Olympics are testament) and this carries over into a extreme adversary between dual of a vital cities: Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is widely remembered as one of a best Olympics in history, though Melbourne isn’t a place to be outdone. A city that once had a repute for feeling all too British is now a breakwater of newcomer populations, giving a city a clearly general feeling and transforming it into a place of colourful enlightenment and quirky attract with a foodie stage to opposition anywhere in a world.

Any city in that we can legitimately ice movement to work in winter has got my opinion and Stockholm, built opposite a sprawling archipelago, is only such a place. No consternation a Swedes surpass in a winter competition department. It can also lay explain to being one of Europe’s many smart and worldly cities; while winter is all about cosy bars and cafes, a unconstrained summer nights meant a celebration never stops. And we can flattering many find any area to fit your mood, from a pastel-coloured buildings and Gothic alleyways of Gamla Stan (old town) to a hipster breakwater of Sodermalm.


Mexico City

It’s satisfactory to contend Mexico City has something of a bad repute though if we demeanour over a stereotype, a horde of a 1968 Olympics offers a quintessential Latin American knowledge – bags of culture, good hotels, a abounding foodie scene, some illusory museums and, many importantly, it’s not scarcely as intimidating as we think. Built on a site of a good Aztec collateral of Tenochtitlan, a city’s design takes we right by a ages, from a aforementioned pre-hispanic times, by a colonial epoch and into a destiny with some severely sparkling contemporary buildings on show.

Where next?

Now if my/Wikipedia’s calculations are scold afterwards there’s never been an Olympic Games hold on African soil, that feels like something of a caricature given it is home to one of a biggest cities in a universe in Cape Town. Few cities can exaggerate as overwhelming a earthy environment as a South African collateral and what a steer it would be to watch a planet’s sporting gods battling it out in a shade of a good Table Mountain.
