30 of the smallest cities in the world
These tiny places are big on appeal!
The word "city" tends to conjure up images of a big, bustling industrial hub of a place, but some cities are teeny tiny places, punching above their weight when it comes to status. The lines regarding what constitutes a city can often be blurred—some nations attribute city status according to size and population density, others according to historical importance, still others according to the presence or otherwise of notable buildings. The indistinct definitions can make it difficult to cohesively rank the size of cities, and some places around the world are referred to as either a town, village, or city, depending on who you ask!
But while some might quibble over detail, these 30 small-but-mighty settlements are all proud to declare themselves cities despite their less-than-large stature. Curious? Click through the following gallery to discover some of the smallest cities in the world.
