Default How big a city/town/village do you want to live in?

I spent my childhood and youth in quite a small town (in Finland), with around 6,000 inhabitants. After that I studied in a city of almost 200,000 inhabitants. Now I'm living in Germany in a town of around 50,000 inhabitants.

I'd say I'd prefer a city with a population between 200,000 and 500,000 but also like smaller towns down to a population of 20,000. Of bigger cities I've visited, e.g. Munich and Budapest felt too big for me. Dublin isn't as big a city and I really liked it. But also smaller towns can be cool places. I really like where I live now. There is beautiful nature close to the town centre. But in bigger cities there are more job opportunities and more leisure opportunities. But cities with over one million inhabitants feel too big.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Was born in a city of 17,000
Then moved to a city with 160,000
Now I live in a city with 330,000

The first one was great to grow up in, as a kid, you had plenty of room to play and not a lot of dangerous traffic. But now I'm in my college years I love the city I'm in now. It's not too big, but big enough to have stuff to do.

When I'm older I wouldn't mind going back to a small city <20.000 again, but that's a long way down the road.

I was borned in a city of 100.000 but, unfortunally I live in a city of 10.000 now. I lived in a city, during 4 months, which has a bit more than half million people, Vilnius. That seems like the perfect size to me. Not too big, but big enough to not be a small one, and where important things happens.

I live in a ruralish village about 20 mins train journey from Manchester which has population of around 10000 people.

I like it here, it is not two crowded and there is lots of places to go on walks and just relax without others getting in my way and the views are good.

Preferably when I get a job wherever it is I would like to be able to move to a similar place to where I am now and if needs be commute to the city I am working in. A large City is very over whelming for me already and I could not imagine trying to cope living there.

I'm living in a city with population at 6,000,000 approximately, so a smaller one is much preferred.

1.5 - 2mil Sofia is perfect for me atm.

Living in the outskirts of the mountain, 15-20min from downtown, combining village like atmosphere with everything the city has to ooffer nerby. I'm a lucky guy in that department.

Been living in Paris - loved it.
Been living in Geneva - loved it too.

At the end of the day it seems that i either have low expectations, or been very lucky to live at nice places.

City i liked a lot and could live in nowadays would be Ljubliana, lovely, small, but not too small, clean, river, many young people, Westernish standard, close to sea and mountains, just perfect.

I tend to prefer the metropolis environment. We'll see if that changes as I age.

I'm glad someone mentioned Paris actually. London is a good place to live in my mind because I enjoy the big city environment but, though I've never been, Paris may have even more of that because it's geographically much smaller and therefore denser. Just adds a different perspective to the question.

When I say I like the metropolis environment, I have the image of bright lights and a thriving, hugely active city centre but it's important to remember there are parts of London on the outskirts which are sold to people on the basis that they have a "village feel".

So, whether or not I've added a dimension to anyone else's thoughts, I would add the caveat to my answer that I favour the metropolis so long as I live in the busy area. Of course to someone who lived in a quieter area they can still venture easily into the city and may see it as the best of both worlds.
