Nice towers individually but what on earth were they thinking - look at the astounding lack of density around the bases, also they are too uniform in height it doesn't seem well planned at all.

The Centrum location shows the vast amounts of empty space
which will soon be filled with tall buildings, i.e. the big car park
and many other bomb sites.

Happy flying Gentlemen.
Not recommended for people who get travel sickness.

...or anywhere else on the planet.

The Eiffel Tower was built for a trade show in 1889 - and noone could be bothered to take it down again - so it has accidently become a symbol of Paris. So far I have not found one French person who likes it (or are they just being modest?)

Just head on down to the French forums on this site.

The Eiffel Tour is an innuendo for just how erect and hard they all seem to get over it round there.

@Londonfox-> we don't care of you and your comments!

paris is the most beautiful city in the world! London never appears in this top 5 list except from people coming from your cities(leeds,birminghman or yorkshire)!
we often read, paris , rome, venise, Prague but never London!

You can erect 100-200 anothers skyscrappers, paris is more beautiful than your capital!

Film like "Midnight in Paris" by woody allen show you that foreign love paris like no one place on earth!

they like our food, our culture, our monuments and they come every years in the most visited city on earth that your rubbish airport statistic try to biase!

Paris is Paris!

And earth love it with NYC as the most famous visited cities on earth!

People please excuse me but Londonfox is exasperating

No, no.

I agree... Paris is more beautiful than London... by quite a way too.

London however, trumps it every day of the week with regards to most other measures.

As a frenchman, I have not found one french person disliking it...it used to be World's tallest tower, & now, it is 'just' the most iconic & magical tower in the world, it has a history & 124 years after its birth, carries on making the world dream. The French love their capital & worship the Eiffel Tower, only the jealous brits hate it, how strange...

Whatever, coming from you brits, those remarks are & will always be such a delight...

When I go back home ( Paris ) from London, I'm happy to eat some decent food ( you know what I mean ).

Top French chef declares London capital of cuisine

London is the new food capital of the world, according to a French chef who has more Michelin stars to his name than any other.



Abandoning his countrymen’s traditional pride in the national cuisine and disdain for English fare, Joël Robuchon admitted that the city’s restaurants are now more innovative than those of Paris.
The 65 year-old, whose restaurants have been awarded a record 25 stars by the revered Michelin guide, also claimed that the biggest variety of world cuisines is to be found in London, after a revolution over the past few decades.
It comes just days after the French prime minister, François Fillon, praised the quality of English food, suggesting an unlikely rapprochement between the two countries.
In the latest comments, Mr Robuchon - once named “chef of the 20th century” – told a newspaper he “would argue that London is very possibly the gastronomic capital of the world”.
“Why? Because it’s only in London that you find every conceivable style of cooking. When it comes to what’s new in cooking, to innovative cuisine, it’s all happening in London.

“The epicentre is not Paris but London.”
Mr Robuchon, who has a restaurant in Soho, said that 30 or 40 years ago, gourmands would only find “terrible food” in London.
“But now the tables have turned. Because it’s in London you will find the best Japanese, Indian and French restaurants.”
Earlier this week, the French prime minister – who married a British woman while his brother married her sister – spoke of his admiration for the country during a visit here.
Mr Fillon told a newspaper that he and Nicolas Sarkozy, the French President, had had “heated arguments” about cuisine, and that he took the line that: “The food in England is much better than people say.”
The French prime minister also admitted that he preferred Britain’s traditional drinking establishment to the continental café society, saying: “If there was one thing I really would like to import from Britain to France it is the pubs.
“The social mix that you find in pubs is something that really doesn't exist here.”

Now now gentlemen. Paris is very beautiful , London may not have the romanticism of Paris but it is better is many other aspects.
The stereotype that British food is bad is more appropriate to the 1950's than the present day. The reality is that there are many top quality British restaurants and the public's cooking in general is improving very rapidly.
Have a pleasant day.

@Londonfox-> stop to troll with you crap newspaper owned by the same magna who work for Big brother!

He washes your mind by feeding you with stupid stories & articles

London you don't know what good food is before french came in your country to learn how to cook well.

The fact is Paris has more Michelin restaurants starred!

I was in london and i don't see a sign of decent english food.

When i go in London i eat croissants at breakfast when i see brits eat beans with milk & coffee
We don't have a single lesson to learn when come the question of food!

France is the best food country from the breakfast to the dessert! We are OK with that!
I love london but there's rubbish food there full of sugar and cholesterol
