It's considered part of Europe, so just get over it.

Physically, 90% of the country is south of the Caucasus, which is Asia, but Baku is exactly where the Causasus ends, which leaves it undecided. Just like Istanbul, one foot in Europe, one in Asia.

TBO I'm influenced by the fact that Eurovision was hosted in Baku earlier this year

Hence, even if it's only 10%, Azerbaijan is part of Europe.

ps. I've just realised. Does this 'is Azerbaijan European?' detour matter? In this Thread's Case, the bigger issue is if/when/how this Tower will be built.........

yeah that is he thing that matters.
i think they planned to start construction 2016, hope we will get real renders next year, but we will see. although at one time i think to remember they changed the shedule to an earlier date, so we will see when they will start and how tall the building will get.

Google updated images of the area.

Imagery date: 23.08.2013

As seen from the image, works on the first island of Khazar Islands project is going. They also started the construction of the bridge connecting the first and second islands. Location of Azerbaijan Tower will probably be in the shown place:

I guess for certain people, if this tower is built, then Azerbaijan will be European so they can claim that the tallest tower in the world is in Europe.

Wow it really is that big? If this is correct then I guess I got the scale a little bit wrong when I photoshoped this a year ago.



But I need to make a new version with new google map picture to be sure.

Btw the picture I used is already two years old and the new one is from 2013. I have to say they've made very little progress over those two years. They always show us same road and some palms and few buildings in raw condition but it all seem like just for show. They are not making any real progress and it seems they cannot start the main tower in scheduled 2016. I hope my doubts are unfounded but they really need to show us more then just palms and roads cause the satellite images reveals it's just the show.

there's really alot of work to do until they can start with the tower, it's doubtful if they can start in 2016

Borders of east europe never worth discussing.

If small part of Azerbaycan is in europe,
so whole Turkey should be in europe?

I think there is nothing to discuss unless there is a real geographical land divider.

Whole east europe border discussions are useless.
