Posted on Travel 12

When you want to send a postcard from a particular place, it’s really hard to choose its design. After all, you have to decide what site portrays the essence of that location best. Google goes through the same problem – if a person searches a place, the website has to determine what images appear at the top of the result list.

Before we jump to the algorithm-based results, however, we have to decide where are we going. According to the United Nations, there are 195 of them (193 countries that are member states of the organization and 2 countries that are non-member observer states). Bored Panda has conducted a Google image search of all the capital cities around the globe and collected the first images of each query. From the sunny coast of Algiers to the buzzing lights of Taipei, these pictures show the incredibly diverse beauty of human civilization. Scroll down to enjoy the pics and don’t forget to upvote your favorites!

P.S. Results may vary for each user, but to make our list as objective as possible, we used Google Chrome’s Incognito mode (the queries were formulated as follows: “City, Country” and was conducted on google.co.uk).
