København / Copenhagen er centrum for en meget en stor del af Danmarks befolkning. Hele hovedstadsområdet (inkl.. Køge og Roskilde) bebos af 1,8 millioner mennesker - knap en tredjedel af landets befolkning.

Københavns Kommune er derimod forbavsende lille. København har omkring en halv million indbyggere og er dermed ikke engang dobbelt så stor som landets næststørste by - Århus.

Da København blev grundlagt af Absalon i 1167 lå den ganske praktisk midt i landet. Men store dele af det det daværende Danmark ligger i dag i Sverige. Selv om mange københavnere i disse år flytter til Sverige, ændrer det ikke på, at Danmarks hovedstad ligger upraktisk placeret i det yderste højre hjørne af Danmark.

Som kulturelt og erhvervsmæssigt centrum står København dog stærkere end nogensinde. Byen tiltrækker mennesker fra hele Danmark, og ofte siges det, at København er den by, hvor flest jyder bor.
