How many cities with over 1 Mio people are in Russia?

Dear readers,

maybe you thought about, maybe not: how many cities with over 1 Mio people does Russia actually have?

I actually thought about the topic before I started to investigate and to read about it and the first obvious two were Moscow and St.Petersburg, but there are several more, of which some are a surprise to me!

Here is the Top 10:

  1. Moscow (12.05 Mio)
  2. St.Petersburg (5.19 Mio)
  3. Novosibirsk (1.57 Mio)
  4. Yekaterinburg (1.43 Mio)
  5. Nizhny Novgorod (1.27 Mio)
  6. Kazan (1.21 Mio)
  7. Chelyabinsk (1.18 Mio)
  8. Samara (1.17 Mio)
  9. Omsk (1.17 Mio)
  10. Rostov-on-Don (1.11 Mio)

Further on there are also Ufa and Volgograd with a bit over a million.

Please note also, that every source has different numbers, so these ones are average, but should show you well the proportions!
