Technically, the Mississippi River, Ohio River and other Rivers of the same or similar size count as major waterways and do not constitute a city on the basin of one to be land locked.  That would rule out almost all the cities on this list.  Someone told me once that Indianapolis is the largest landlocked city in the world by population.  I could be proven wrong on that.

Upon recent study, the largest landlocked city in the world is currently Johannesburg, South Africa.

Being from Indiana I also have always heard that Indianapolis is the largest but have never seen it on paper.

I would not consider cities such as St. Louis or Cincinnati to be landlocked because they have waterways that give them access to commercial shipping lanes.
