Different countries deal differently with large cities. Athens, for example, has about four million inhabitants, but it has been divided into many municipalities making the city proper of Athens one of the smaller European capitals, with about 800,000 inhabitants. Densely populated regions that have no single core but have emerged from the connection of several cites and are now encompassing large metropolitan areas are Rhine-Ruhr having approximately 11.5 million inhabitants (Cologne, Dortmund, Düsseldorf et al.), Randstad approx. 7 million (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht et al.), Flemish Diamond approx 5.5 million (Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent et al.), Frankfurt/Rhine-Main approx. 5.3 million (Frankfurt, Wiesbaden et al.) and the Upper Silesian metropolitan area approx. 5.3 million.
