Like in St-Denis, Vincennes & Boulogne there are many other such medieval monuments spread around the old medieval Paris (but now incorporated by the urban spread). Maybe at some point I'll try to list them up...

Prague was the empire of the Holy Sacred empire (that compromised Medieval times and some contemporary ones), in it preserves lot of heritage of that times (as his castle, the larguest medieval castle in the world). But it still seems me a very stupid afirmation to belive that Paris has the most medieval stuff in Europe (or the world).

You have no capital cities like Nuremeberg or Carcassone (and thousands more) that are really jewels.

And talking about capitals:

Tallinn:


Bern:

You are talking about medieval appereance on small area, in that case there are Bruges, Ghent, Rouen... but there are only few medieval churches, not like the 20 medieval churches only in center of Paris. Medieval buildings are up to c.1500. Most half timbered houses in Europe are from renaissanse and baroque era. Half timbered houses are village architecture up to c.1800 in Europe. Isnt every old building from medieval era.

Arcueil also has the fantastic old Medici aqueducts, but they are not medieval (early 17th century).

Sainte-Chapelle de Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye

It was in this chapel in 1238 that Baldwin II of Constantinople presented Louis IX with the relic of the crown of thorns and, though they were intended for the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris, they were housed here until the Paris chapel was consecrated in April 1248.

Well, Cologne, even though heavily destroyed during the War, boasts for example with 12 Romanic churches, plus the amazing Cologne Cathdral. In this regard it's in no way inferior to Paris.

Yes, it is, because all that 12 romanic churches are 20 century replicas.
This is sad but true, Cologne was one of the largest cities in medieval Europe.

Église Saint-Étienne d'Issy-les-Moulineaux

A very interesting church, founded early, with 7th century vaulted underground remains (if I understand right), a romanesque tympanum and a nave in a bizarre transitional style from medieval to classical.

Église Saint-Saturnin de Nogent-sur-Marne

This is a strange one. If I get it right, the South portal comes from a building in inner Paris that (even it) is not the original source. It is claimed that the portal could come from the old Saint-Sulpice church, when it was demolished.
