For thousands of years, Europe has been a focal point of world affairs, home to an ever-shifting sea of alliances, borders, and wars. Along the way, resilient and strategically-located cities managed to survive the chaos, bringing a bit of order to the region’s trade and politics.

There are dozens and dozens of countries in Europe, from the sprawling likes of Germany, to the United Kingdom and France. We bet that you can probably name the biggest cities in these three countries without much effort. But what about places like Croatia and Turkey?
