How about "on the edge of the capital" ? I think in English this is said often as well - with the same meaning.

I am English and just answered edge, knowing what the periphery is as it is also a word in English!

I would say suburbs are outskirts, yes. Also we say "in the suburbs" but "on the outskirts".

Not necessarily, some outskirts are rural areas not suburbs.

In English, we say "on the outskirts," not "at the outskirts."
