Jilín City – alternately romanized as Kirin – is the second-largest city and former capital of Jilin province in northeast China.

As of the 2020 census, 3,623,713 people resided within its administrative area of 27,166.37 square kilometres (10,488.99 sq mi) and 1,895,865 in its built-up (or metro) area consisting of four urban districts.

A prefecture-level city, it is the only Mayor city nationally that shares its name with its province. Jilin City is also known as the River City because of the Songhua River surrounding much of the city. In 2007, it co-hosted the Asian Winter Games
