That's quite an ignorant claim you made there. Central Europe has a great variety of architectural styles with distinctive characteristics throughout its regions. For someone with at least some basic knowledge and actually cares, it's no real problem to distinguish Czech city from a Bulgarian one, dooh.
With the type of generalising you've used, one could say all Latin American cities looks the same; or traditional architecture of China and Japan,..

I still think London pulls it...

But Cities that have gone way up in my estimation are;
Milan, (this one really surprise me! Looks amazing)
Rotterdam,
Warsaw,
Istabul.

I am LOVING the Moscow development.

What I love about Warsaw though, is that hey have centred their cluster around the Palace of Science and Culture - i just LOVE the contrast of styles. The Palace is like Eastern Europe's Empire State, and i love the mini-manhattan that is developing around it!

But yes... my heart still lays with London <3

I never had impression that Polish cities are known worldwide. All I wanted to say that major Polish cities are more recognizable than major Russian cities, certainly more than Russian cities of comparable size.

Krakow vs Nizhny Novogrod
Wroclaw vs Yekaterinburg
Gdansk vs Novosibirsk.

Will really more Japanese know the second one than the first(most won't know both, I'm sure).

Yes, Warsaw has unique chance to create one skyscraper cluster in the centre of the city, where their concentration would compensate for numbers or height. Unfortunately, urban planning is still ignored here nad adjusted to will of inverstors.

Also the big area aroung Palace of Culture remains unocuppied due to uncertainity about land ownership claims. And it goes so for 20 years by now.

The Shard wins the "Best Large Project" award at the Global Construction Summit in New York



The Shard in London won the "Best Large Project" award at the recent Global Construction Summit organized by Engineering News Record (ENR), a major New York-based publication. The ceremony took place in Manhattan Thursday, June 6.

This is the first year of the "Global Best Projects" awards. It acknowledges the best construction projects, worldwide.

A host of other constructions were honored in various categories. A panel of judges chose the buildings on the basis of various parameters, according to ENR.com.

The Shard building was chosen by the panel as a part of the "Best projects of the year" award. In this category, judges singled out two international projects that excelled in terms of design, innovation, construction quality, overcoming international building challenges and safety.

You know that your argument is just childish.
And one troll from Poland is not a reason to wish death to every pole. You're not making your country likable with such comments, just like him.
Guys promote your countries and cities with respect, without putting any other city down. It's just not fair, it's like shooting all other runners down to win.

Les Invalides (French pronunciation: ​[lezɛ̃valid]), officially known as L'Hôtel national des Invalides (The National Residence of the Invalids), is a complex of buildings in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, France, containing museums and monuments, all relating to the military history of France, as well as a hospital and a retirement home for war veterans, the building's original purpose. The buildings house the Musée de l'Armée, the military museum of the Army of France, the Musée des Plans-Reliefs, and the Musée d'Histoire Contemporaine, as well as the burial site for some of France's war heroes, notably Napoleon Bonaparte (lists below).

Again, what forces you to think this way (except your sadly-famous Polish "patriotism")?

I don't think vast majority people in all world will able to name at least one prominent building in these cities. So how can you say that Polish cities are more recognizable?
