Populations of Warsaw and Katowice appear to be inaccurate. Or does this include suburbs? If so, then population of Kyiv is inaccurate.

What does Berlin have to do with EE? :)

A lot of figures seem to be off, I doubt this is the 'best' and 'most accurate' as you put it
Well as Doc said, it depends on what they counted

Are those population figures for the city proper and do not include the metropolitan area ??

Some figures make sense(Kiev, Budapest, Berlin...) but some like Belgrade do not.
1.1 million is figure from...1975?
Today, Belgrade has 1.7 million *officially* , 2.2 million unofficially. Some say even 3 million+.

Riga is 750 000? This is very wrong whatever methodics they use. Riga city inside its borders is 730 000, Riga as continuous urban area has got 830 000 inhabitants, Riga as metropolitan region - 1 100 000. Number 750 000 does not correspond to any of them.

I do agree with you, Belgrade has more than 2 million inhabitants. Don't know for others

Most of the numbers on that list are wrong. And I'm sure Zagreb has over a million inhabitants by now.
True
973.667 (2005)
1.200.000 metro area

Where did you find those numbers? I know for this 973.667 this is from MUP statistics in 2005, but that is for city area, I think there is no statistics for metro area ??

What are you talking about??? That is not correct :nono:

I don't know how to translate 'prebivaliste'. If we count students that would be 'boraviste'. 973.667 people has ragistrated 'prebivaliste' in Zagreb city area, so Zagreb has 973.667 inhabitans ;)

I think Zagreb has about 880 000 Inhabitants and additional 320 000 in metro area, Samobor, V. Groica, Zapersic, Sesvete.


Anyways we'll see in 2007 as Croatia has to complete new census for EU census before it joins EU in 2009, this is due to EU parliamentary elections in 2009.

Croatia is to get 7-8 seats in EU parliament, country will be split in to 4 voting units, Primorje-Istria, Central Croatian, Slavonia and Dalmatia.

Each unit 2 votes, = 8 votes.
