It's perhaps unsurprising that the bulk of the world's most populous cities are located in the world's two most populous countries, China and India. Shanghai and Beijing, with populations of 25 and 22 million people, respectively, Delhi (27 million), and Mumbai (25 million) are among them (over 21.5 million).
However, when the entire Tokyo metro area is considered, Tokyo is the world's largest city, with a population of more than 38 million people. Osaka, another Japanese capital, has a population of nearly 20.5 million people. Non-Asian cities with large populations include Mexico City (over 21 million people), Cairo (nearly 19.5 million people), and Buenos Aires (nearly 15.5 million people).
Istanbul is the most populous city in Europe, with a population of over 14.5 million people. Moscow (with a population of over 12 million people) and Paris are the next two cities on the list (11 million including the Paris metro area). Of course, these cities are culturally important, and each year, millions of visitors visit them.
A number of well-known and culturally rich cities have smaller populations, resulting in higher living standards for their residents. Barcelona, Sydney, Berlin, and Vancouver all have populations of less than five million people, but they are all popular cities to live in. There are also a few relatively small cities with significant cultural, historical, or political clout, such as
Sarajevo (314,000), Edinburgh (502,000), and Venice (631,000) are examples of comparatively small cities with large cultural, historical, or political reputations, showing that small cities can be highly significant regardless of population size.
