    Re: cities of the country/cities in the country

    I think , both are correct

    but you use them in different situations
    it depends on the sentences

    "in" could be used in most (all?) cases, so without a full sentence, I'd suggest that.

    Re: cities of the country/cities in the country

    Here is the full sentence:
    Number of museums per capita in the city is the largest among all cities in the country.

    Is it OK?

    Could you please give me some examples in which there is a discrepancy between "in" and "of"?

    Re: cities of the country/cities in the country

    I think "of" is correct one

    in all the cities of the country.

    I would say:
    The number of museums per capita in the city is the largest of all cities in the country.
    I can't think of an example where you'd have to use "of the country".
