Due to economic, environmental, social and cultural reasons, city administrations comply with the trends suitable for the needs of the high population with a human-oriented perspective. In addition to the central government, metropolitan municipalities are keeping up with this transformation by starting to create smart city units within their own structure. Adoption of smart city strategies in the management of crowded cities is prioritized to increase the level of welfare. In order to evaluate how smart cities are adapting to this strategies, it would be appropriate to periodically inspect themselves according to expert opinion and certain criteria. In this study, the suitability of seven cities for smart cities was investigated according to six smart city indicators. Circular intuitionistic fuzzy set (C-IFS), which have recently been included in the literature and are the extension of intuitionistic fuzzy set (IF), including the uncertainty of IF group decisions, have been applied for the first time with the PROMETHEE I and PROMETHEE II methods. The proposed method is intended to support the integration of C-IFS into MCDM models.
