a thousand and one year club

these cities are old...really old.. we are talking 1001 y.o. or more! Guess what ...they still sing about these beauties

This text implies a Silk route city of Shymkent (ancient site in modern day Kazakhstan). Archaeological excavations point to VI AD as possible start of settlement.

Toledo (Spain) has more than 2000 years verified history.

Seems to me that Jerusalem passes the 1001 y. limit with flying honors (around 1000 B.C. )
On this site only we have four songs about Jerusalem:
Gad Elbaz - אם אשכחך ירושלים (Im eshkaheh Yerushalaim)
Alexander Listengort - הנה שוב עכשיו אני בירושלים (Hine shuv ahshav ani beYerushalaim)
Sarit Hadad - ירושלים האחרת (Yerushalaim HaAkheret)
Naomi Shemer - Yerushalayim shel Zahav (ירושלים של זהב)

You could find some songs about Derbent on YT. This city is 5000+ years old.
it would be cool if you will arrange your collection starting from the oldest.

Yes, cool, but might open a door to politically fueled bickering, I d rather stay out of such temptations.

[@wisigoth] А почему добавили страницу исполнителя, а не страницу самой песни?

Не могу найти исполнителя и пара слов в тексте есть непонятных в последней строфе...
...
Словно море лугов и пашен
Переменам великим рад.
??? свершеньям нашим Ради славы свершеньям нашим ???
Гордо высится Создаль-град!
