What cities around the world (small to large) do you know of, that do not have significant bodies of water (examples: navigable rivers, bays, ocean, natural lakes, inlets)?

How about Mexico City? It used to be a large lake basin but it drained out
Well, Certainly, Mexico City was founded over a huge lake, but today there are still some parts as a living memories of that lake.

Xochimilco is the great reference.

There is a map about the location of Mexico City, you can compare how was the size of the Texcoco lake (La cuenca de México ayer) and now the actual situation. (La cuenca de Mexico hoy)

Nothing in Canada really. Every city of any size is located next to a significant body of water. You have to go all the way down to cities as small as London (457,000), Kitchener-Waterloo (451,000), and Regina (194,000) to find cities with no significant body of water.

Here Debrecen,Nyíregyháza,Pécs,Kecskemét. All are above 100000 big cities.

I find the question a bit confusing...what is city internationally? Settlements here even with 5000 can be "awarded" with city rank...
