For me at present there are two:

Germany - Dusseldorf, Aachen, Kaiserslautern and Munich but not Berlin
Sweden - Malmo but not Stockholm (this should change soon)

Some other countries which fell into this category in the past were:

Canada - Winnipeg, Toronto, Saskatoon, Guelph, Niagara Falls and other places visited before Ottawa
USA - Chicago, Rockford, New York, Denver, Boulder, Newark, Richmond, Philadelphia and Baltimore visited before Washington DC
Venezuela - Puerto Ordaz, Ciudad Bolivar, Margarita visited before Caracas
Spain - Barcelona, Tenerife, La Gomera, Ibiza, Mallorca, Benidorm and Gran Canaria visited before Madrid
The Netherlands - while I connected through AMS I did not leave the airport but then visited Vaals and Drielandenpunt before properly visiting Amsterdam 5 years later.

Hop to it, fly for life!
