human187, I was not bashing Moscow or Istanbul if you got that impression. I was just trying to highlight how difficult it is to get a proper fair comparison as each countries statistics use different measures. Which city in Europe is largest is subjective and dependent on statistics that will never show the full picture. Even the density stats are ultimately useless, even from a skyscraper point of view. For example, the London borough of Kensington and Chelsea has a population density of 13,000/km2, yet it looks like this with not a skyscraper in sight.

Now just to balance this out, here are a few skyline photos I've taken recently.

There is no clear and fair comparison between those three cities, but a few more "facts".

Density.

London: 5,285/km2

Moscow: 4,581.24 /km2

Istanbul: 2,725/km2

Metro Population.

Istanbul: as far as I can tell it's 14,160,467, the same figure that was posted below as being the city proper.

Moscow: Roughly 15 million. That includes Moscow proper and parts of Moscow Oblast, an area 35% of the size of England. I'm guessing the parts included are just the major cities within the Oblast.

London: 13,709,000 including Satellite towns in the South East. Most of these towns would have been swallowed up years ago if the city had been allowed to sprawl out. I'm not sure what area this covers, but it's far smaller than the size of Moscow Oblast. If London's metro area were taken as being the same size as Moscow's you would have to include Birmingham as part of the Metro area.

So yeah, apples and oranges.
London is easily the biggest city in Europe..

With Moscow they're including an area the size of Belgium .. Maybe bigger .. Absurd and an unrealistic comparison.

Paris is dense but London is just much bigger than Paris .. I'm sorry but it really is .. London just sprawls forever .. and is dense as well ..

Any conflict here starts with London stuffs or London fans.
Each time there is some brawl, London is always in it.
Just an objective statement. Simple observation.

I would say Frankfurt is more New Yorkish. London's Citi cluster is pretty small.
