You're so annoying with your everlasting superlatives, it looks as if you were a 6 year old kid...and to say that you're not even british, must be hard to accept...stop posting photos with isolated buildings, that's not the right thread to do so, otherwise we're gonna do it as well & I'm not sure we'll do our foreign fellows a favor.

No clue what any of this means, even after googling.

SOmeone's need to boast with achievements of their country or city (or even with someone else's country or city, lol) is an act of compensation for someone's personal underachievement...

Please City of Capitals is 301.60 metres and the first supertall in Europe. Don't get me wrong, you are doing a great job with all your pictures and info in the SSC threads, but somtimes you just get on peoples nerves with your comments. Remember, we are all friends in SSC and share a common goal and interest

...ps: I love all the great and amazing cities in our lovely Europe

SO143, you can certainly argue that the Shard is the tallest building in Europe for a few more months, but calling it Europe's first super-tall is BS, and everybody else seems to know this except for you. Maybe people would appreciate your contributions more if you were more honest and truthful with your statements. It's incredibly easy to verify information in this day and age.

For the record, I think London has Europe's 2nd best skyline.

Two buildings in Moscow already taller than the shard namely Mercury Tower and Eurasia may be of the same height of the shard if not taller, and by the end of the year two more building OKO and Federation tower will surpass the shard as well!

Yeah, but neither are done yet, so technically the Shard will be the tallest completed building in Europe until one of those opens.

We don't need any of this, unless you're specifically trying to annoy people. Just post the pictures - I agree that London is a great city that has a lot going for it, but there's no need to take it too far and boast about it (especially as it was actually Moscow that had Europe's first supertall, unless you meant the European Union).

silly debate...
I think that the quality of the architecture is more important than the height of the buildings.
