Although the three largest cities of the world all are Asian cities, there are quite a few metropoles on the European continent as well. Two of these cities even have more than ten million inhabitants, ranking these cities amongst the largest cities in the world as well.

The ten largest cities in Europa are;

1. Istanbul (Turkey) – 11,4 million inhabitants


2. Moscow (Russia) – 10,5 million inhabitants


3. London (England) – 7,6 million inhabitants


4. St. Petersburg (Russia) – 4,6 million inhabitants


5. Ankara (Turkey) – 3,9 million inhabitants


6. Berlin (Germany) – 3,4 million inhabitants


7. Madrid (Spain) – 3,2 million inhabitants


8. Rome (Italy) – 2,9 million inhabitants


9. Kiev (Ukraine) – 2,8 million inhabitants


10. Paris (France) – 2,2 million inhabitants


However, when you only look at size, and not so much at the inhabitants of a city, Baku is the largest city in Europe. The capital of Azerbaijan measures a stunning 822 square miles, which is about twice the size of New York City.

  1. Reply Vladimir Boskovic 13.12.2010 What is this? Where is Athens?
  2. Reply Europeish 14.12.2010 Actually, the city of Athens only has 700,000ish inhabitants, but if you would count the surrounding agglomerations as well, it would definitely be in this list with 3 million+ people living there.
  3. Reply Ralph 06.11.2011 Istanbul lies, for the half, in Asia and Ankara is entirely in Asia.
    • Reply Marc 11.12.2017 Turkey is a part of Western World that's why it's capital Ankara is classified as Europe.. Istanbul is already a European city..
  4. Reply Rashad 13.07.2012 According to wikipedia Baku's population has already passed 2 million inhabitants 'couple years ago'. So you can include Baku to this list as well

  7. Reply Jack 22.05.2018 This is a joke! EVERYBODY knows Russia is NOT part of Europe! Its rubbish propoganda, are the Russians trying to market themselves as the head of Europe?! Nonesense! Moskow is the largest city on the continent of Eurasia, it is NOT the largest city in Europe! Its not part of the EU and it isnt part of the European continent! Neither is Turkey! Stop confusing people with stupid jargon that puts other nations inside the EU or European Land mass. Europes largest city by size and population is London!
  8. Reply Peet 16.12.2018 Actually Russia isn't in Europe so why is it in this site.seriously i even checked Google and Google maps and russia isn't in Europe so sort yourself out.
  9. Reply Paul 28.12.2018 Athens is way too small. It has only about 300,000 inhabitants. It's about a tenth of Rome in size.
  10. Reply Paul 28.12.2018 Athens is too tiny, folks. Even with the metropolitan area, it doesn't reach the amount of residents required to make it into this chart.
