  2. There are now more than 500 million citizens in the European Union. This is another graph that includes the enlargement steps of the EU : http://www.ined.fr/en/everything_about_population/graph_month/population_ue Population growth by European country, period 2002 > 2007.

  5. Me too. Thanks to all of you, I love this thread.
  6. The data from World Gazetteer is accurate to me, at least for the European cities. What is arguable is how some large cities are grouped (Manchester-Liverpool, Randstad, Rhein-Main, Alma...), but considering the high density of those areas, why not ? The metropolitan areas are written in boldface. To know their composition, just click on the name, then "cities" at the top of the new page. So, according to World-Gazetteer, the 25 top metro areas in the European Union are (millions) : London : 13.22 Paris : 11.89 Rhine-Rhur : 11.83 Randstad : 6.59 Madrid : 6.32 Manchester-Liverpool : 5.16 Barcelona : 4.97 Milan : 4.34 Berlin : 4.05 Rome : 3.94 Athens : 3.85 Naples : 3.84 Birmingham : 3.78 Hamburg : 3.26 Rhine-Main (Franckfurt) : 3.14 Lisbon : 2.64 Budapest : 2.57 Katowice : 2.54 Copenhagen-Malm
  7. I think the same thing. Cool view after dark!
  8. With the perspective, the horizon seems to crush the city!
