Many Europeans know London. It is the most visited city in the world, in terms of airport passengers (135 millions in 2012), and it is the second largest city in Europe, only surpassed by Paris. There are almost 9,6 million people living in London, but during everyday office hours it is estimated that apprx. 12 million people are present within the greater city limits. This requires a highly effective system for mass transportation and roads in top condition. The traffic density is high at all times, even at night. From apprx. 1831 until 1925 London was the largest city in the world. Today that honor goes to Tokyo, with a whopping 35 million inhabitants within “Greater Tokyo” (WOW!) - 13,2 million in the very center!
