Triest is a city in Slovenia
Or at least, should be.

Italy can also argue that the Julian Alps, Istria and the Dalmatian Coast should also be part of Italy. Not to mention Haute Savoy, Nice and Corsica


I voted for Trieste coz Greece has the Olympics, Spain had the Olympics in 1992 and also cos Trieste is a EU city with easy access and is the port for Slovenia and Austria Winter Olympics (excluded)

Someone is voting here for Trieste too many times. This is what is going to happen in reality. Italians will try to bribe.

There is definetely one thing in common that all three cities are nice but not important as their capitals. Whoever gets it gets an economic boost or a big loss. Athens, Rome, Madrid can attract more visitors and investments without silly expos.

If Sevilla hosted an expo some years ago then there is no chance for Spain again. Unless you have real close friends to the committee. If anything like this happen we will go to the European court.

Actually, Slovenia has its own major port of Koper (Capodistria) that competes with Trieste for the Austrian market.

If you live in Trieste, you should realize that the city and -- to a greater extent -- its suburbs have a significant and historic Slovenian population. Therefore, the city is most definitely not "totaly Italian", just as many coastal Slovenian towns such as Izola (Isola) and Piran (Pirano) aren't "totally Slovenian" -- they have a significant and historic Italian minority.
