We need a definition of Europe too, we've seen some entries from Israel and Azerbaijan. Geographically Europe's eastern border is defined as the crests' of the Ural and Caucasian mountain ranges, the Ural river and the Bosporus, this means there are countries split between continents, namely Turkey, Russia, Kazakstan, Azerbaijan and Georgia.

Can any entry from these countries count or only those entries that lie within the European region of that country e.g. Moscow Counts, Vladivostok doesn't. Regarding Istanbul, Sapphire Istanbul is on the European side of Istanbul so can count, but what about buildings on the Asian side of Istanbul? Regarding Baku, Baku is in the Asian region of Azerbaijan so no buildings in that city should count.

This map shows the boundary between Europe on the left and Asia to the right as a red line:

jdjones: it will not be a problem I guess, because I don't think any building from a questionable city will get enough votes.

however, this should be the rule to rule:
Quote:
only those entries that lie within the European region of that country


coth: only one building per country.

As a european it's amazing how uninteresting the continent has become. The only really impressive buildings are the ancient ones. Other than that I agree with the people who didnt read the rules- the best ones arent really in europe or at least are so far outside the EU that it's debatable. If this thread was titled "Nominate your favorite Dubai skyscrapers" it would probably look better. Go East, people.
