Which cities are the most populated, why is Moscow called “non-rubber” and how much Czech or Belgian can you accommodate in it freely? Whom more, Chinese in Shanghai, Japanese in Tokyo or Kazakhs in Kazakhstan? Statistics provides answers to even such tricky questions.

The most populated cities of Russia

The population of cities is not constant, and statistics become obsolete very quickly. Cities change places in the lists in just a few years, since the influx and outflow of the population, and the demographic situation in general, are sometimes influenced by unexpected factors. However, general trends do not change so quickly.

For example, for 2013, the Rosstat issues such positions in terms of population size.
In the first place - Moscow, where officially 11.9 million people live. And another five million people live either temporarily or illegally, but it is already more difficult to calculate them. Even if we take only the officially registered population, it turns out that in Moscow alone there are more residents than in many European countries as a whole,and even in some countries combined.

The influx of residents is constant, people go to earn a living. There are a lot of migrants, but so far Moscow is still a predominantly Russian city.
The second most populous is St. Petersburg. There, the population is three times less than in Moscow with suburbs, about five million and a little. Like Moscow, St. Petersburg is among the ten largest cities in Europe. There are relatively few migrants there.
St. Petersburg ranks second in the ranking of Russian citiesSt. Petersburg ranks second in the ranking of Russian cities
In third place is still Novosibirsk with its one and a half million people. This city is also a kind of champion of the country in terms of growth: with its age of a hundred and a half years, it grew to a million people very quickly.
Ural Yekaterinburg is rapidly catching up with the Siberian capital: 1.43 million for 2013.

Moscow is the most populated city not only in Russia, but also in EuropeMoscow is the most populated city not only in Russia, but also in Europe
In second place is London, where there are 8.3 million inhabitants. Two hundred years ago, London was the most populous in the world. St. Petersburg, with its 5 million people, ranks third in Europe.
In fourth place is Berlin, the capital of Germany, which is also the most populated city in its country. Of the 4 million inhabitants, more than 10 percent are foreigners, mostly Muslims, and the Berlin Turkish community of one and a half hundred thousand members is the largest in the world, if not to count Turkey itself. In general, Berlin can already be called a truly multicultural city.

The fifth position is occupied by the capital of Spain, Madrid, its population is 3.3 million inhabitants. The Spaniards also have problems similar to the German ones: the influx of the population comes exclusively from migrants from Arab countries.

What is the list of the largest cities by population in the world? The most populous city in the world is, as expected, in China.
Shanghai leads by a huge margin with its nearly 24 million inhabitants, and if you take into account the suburbs connected with it, you get 26 million Chinese, and not only Chinese. It is noteworthy that a hundred years ago, Shanghai was almost a village where mostly fishermen lived, and in the 21st century it is one of the largest seaports and transit river points, the economic, commercial and cultural center of the country, and in the global financial world its position is quite are high. Shanghai continues to grow and build up, but basically it is either a seal, or growth up and down.

The fourth densely populated city is also Asian: it is the capital of Thailand, Bangkok.The population is 15 million inhabitants according to official data.
Fifth - again Asia, Japan. In Tokyo lives 13.2 million. But if you take into account the entire Tokyo agglomeration, the city will come out on top in the world: 38 million people! An amazing amount, given the small size of the whole country. This is more than in the “trans-ural” part of Russia, in the same huge Kazakhstan, half as many people live. From here it becomes clear the desire of the Japanese to minimalism and the microscopic area of ​​their housing. Interestingly, immigration in the country is limited by law, and the overwhelming majority of residents are ethnic Japanese.
In sixth place is the capital of India, Delhi, with 12.6 million people.
The seventh is Indian Mumbai, 12.5 million people.
