    Bolivia is one of the few countries that has two capital cities -- Sucre is home to the judicial branch of the government (making it the constitutional capital), while the president and congress are stationed in La Paz (the administrative capital).

    It's hard to say exactly why Bolivia's government is split into two places, but it seems to have something to do with the Liberal Party of 1899. According to the extensive Bolivia - A Country Study from the Library of Congress, a political power struggle and an economic shift led to the establishment of two capitals. In 1899 Bolivia's Liberal Party overthrew the Conservative Party during the Federal Revolution. Tin mining, which was centered around La Paz, had become a big, new money-maker for the country, and tin entrepreneurs supported the Liberals.

    La Paz is the home of the Bolivian government and if you look on most maps it will show La Paz as the capital city... However, the centre of the judicial system/courts is based in Sucre so technically that should be the capital.

    I'd say it has two - La Paz and Sucre.

    La Paz was founded; headquarters of the government of Bolivia and capital of the department of the same name. Since its foundation, the city has known how to harmonize those features of its cultural and architectural inheritance, with discreet flashes of modernity that constitute authentic brushstrokes of the future in the andean height.

    As far as I know, capital is only one, and that is Sucre.

    The goverment runs the country from La Paz, but the capital is Sucre.
