Either 8 or 9 depending on how you count.

Antigua & Barbuda - St. John’s
Canada - Ottawa
Italy - Rome
Mexico - Mexico City
Saint Lucia - Castries
Scotland - Edinburgh (almost a country?)
United Kingdom - London
United Arab Emirates - Abu Dhabi (most recent)
Vatican City - Vatican City (knock on wood)
And get to add Tokyo by the end of this year!

In terms of countries, I sadly have not seen the capitals of Morocco, the USA, Germany, France and the Netherlands yet.

32-33 for me but I've been to one of the more-obscure ones: Capital of Belize. Also went to Bonn in the smaller BRD/FRG.

For some reason, I always thought Pretoria was the capital of South Africa.

You're absolutely correct! Still one of the most unusual trips I've ever taken...

It's the administrative capital, Cape Town is the legislative capital (Parliament sits there.) So yes and no.

35 for me, including a couple from the former USSR that weren't independent countries when I was there, Tashkent and Dushanbe.

*Berlin Hauptstadt der DDR (East Berlin) - Berlin was not the capital of the Federal Republic at that time.
**If transiting an airport counts. I was admitted through immigration since I was connecting to another Schengen country.
