Vanves French pronunciation: [vv] is a commune in the southwestern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 5.6 km (3.5 mi) from the center of Paris. It is one of the most densely populated municipalities in Europe and the tenth in France 
On 1 January 1860, the city of Paris was enlarged by annexing neighboring communes. On that occasion, about a third of the commune of Vanves was annexed to Paris, and forms now essentially the neighborhood of Plaisance, in the 14th arrondissement of Paris.
On 8 November 1883, about half of the territory of Vanves was detached and became the commune of Malakoff.
Vanves is served by Malakoff – Plateau de Vanves station on Paris Métro Line 13. This station is located at the border between the commune of Vanves and the commune of Malakoff, on the Malakoff side of the border.
