Are you kidding me?! Apart from the really gorgeous St. Petersburg all Russian cities look the same to me. Vast seas of ugly commie blocks, maybe some socrealist towers (which essentially look all the same) and here and there kitschy post Soviet Union buildings.
Poland's cities are MUCH more varied, distinctive in their look and beautiful. Cracow, Gdansk, Wroclaw, Torun...and there are many more.

of course, you know Poland much more better than Russia (neighbour+ many of polish cities are originally German)

But Brazil is equally far from Russia and Poland, so Brazilian opinion is more objective.

I live in Belarus right between Poland and Russia and also can distinguish much more polish cities rather then russian ones. Actually only 2 - Saint Petersburg and Moscow.
Where in Poland it's Warsaw, Crakow, Gdansk, Poznan and Bieloslock(well, probably the most popular city for belarusians )
and i guess it's the same among other young people who did not travel through ex-ussr which was the only distination some decades ago

In Poland, there is only one city which is pretended to be in this list. If you ask any person from non-neighboring countries about other Polish cities - none associations that can come to the mind. Gdansk, Wroclaw, Torun... What is it? How many people outside EU heard about it?

LOL. Do you want to say that this set of box-shaped buildings can speak about changes? What buildings are "masterpieces" for you?

I can see only one beatiful building at this photo. Ironically, it was built by Russians in Soviet era.

The whole Warsaw consist of these "penals":

Can you explain me how recognizability matters? Does a simple fact that you have seen something before make it automatically better and something unknown worse? I guess you have no soul of an explorer.

actually you are the person who starts this game

those lists don't have Tour Osmose(284m) for instance, so never trust wikipedia)

wiki does not mention about it because the application for that tower was not approved (failed project). anyhow, the same thing can be said for london too. many approved and proposed buildings are missing in the tables on wiki page. there are plenty of highrise/lowrise buildings rising up all over london like the mushrooms are popping up in the forest. therefore, londoners don't even bother to open dedicated threads for them in the international sections.

tons of multi billion worth of projects in london

Sweet innit xoxo
Frankfurt has 5 (200m) towers in a cluster.

+1

frankfurt has as many skyscrapers as london and i wish the u/c european central bank hq was planned to be above 200m+ to be classified as a skyscraper tho.

it is such a nice building with glass cladding. frankfurt "financial centre of the eurozone countries" needs more iconic and modern buildings like that.

However, you have right. But it was in the earlier past, buildings were planned significantly lower, but were later built higher.
e.g. Tower 185 today 200m (previously 185m)
**TaunusTurm today 170m (previously 136m)
