...but will milan be considered europe or not? haha! Just joking, but sometimes flexibility in rules is very important to let games be funny, so totally favourable for Baku included in this competition!

Why is most of people nominating Torre de Cristal or Torre Espacio in Madrid? It's a honour but I like Torre Caja Madrid more than the others!

and then? 70% of buildings nominated here are not over 200 metres...many buildings from london too. but here with "skyscraper" i think we mean easly "high building"...and however the pinnacle (NOT antenna) take it to 231 m of height.

West Kazakhstan is in Europe, at this point the boundary of Europe is defined by the Ural River. Similar but slightly different to Azerbaijan, who's culture can be considered European even though it is primarily in Asia, the culture of Kazakhstan is primarily Asian, even though it has some land in Europe. You cannot deny fact, even if you don't like the truth, the internationally recognised border between Europe and Asia has been in place since c.1850.
