Europe's largest cities
Cities ranked 1 to 100

Capital letters denote country capital cities. This table provides population figures for cities with legally defined boundaries, with recognised urban status and with its own local government. The figures do not take into account suburban settlements or other heavily populated areas outside city boundaries. Some of the population figures for smaller towns in the United Kingdom include neighbouring rural areas if they and the towns share local government.
