Largest European metropolitan areas

From Academic Kids

These are the largest metropolitan areas and cities of Europe. Where the population figure is for a metropolitan area, the population of the city proper is given in the brackets.

In many cases, the list of Largest urban areas of the European Union would give figures that better reflects common understanding of the different cities' sizes as the metropolitan areas include also non-urban and suburban areas and administrative borders for cities often cut across the most urban areas. As in the rest of the world, metropolitan areas in Europe are much debated, and widely different figures are given for the same place by different sources. These figures should be seen as an interpretation, not as conclusive facts.
