Istanbul Set to Eclipse London as Europe’s Biggest City by 2020

London’s status as Europe’s most populous metropolitan area is threatened.

The Turkish city has been growing at an average rate of 2.6% since 2007, when its population was 12 million. And it will continue its growth for the rest of the decade, ending up at 16.4 million.
