The Berlin TV tower is 368.03 m, while the Latvian Riga TV tower is 368.5 m. The Berlin one is not the highest one apparently. In Holland there is also still the Gerbrandy Tower, which is 382.5 m . And in the UK the Emley Moor Radio Mast, which is 385 m.

Away from El Greco's daily search for an argument I visited Milan recently and I must say it's skyline is really coming along nicely. I've obviously seen pictures on here but I don't think it pictures well compared to a view of it in person. Came back looking forward to seeing how it'll grow over the next few years.

in Wikipedia is written, that the Gerbrandy Tower was reduced to 367 m.

What are talking about? Triumph Palace is much taller than both of these buildings! And OKO supertall tower will be 100% residental!

I think the hatred is declining. Most people accept it and it has become one of Warsaw's incons, maybe the most important one.

The next challenge is to build something higher than it. The regional planning will allow this to be build (in terms of height, it is just a conception):


The first building in the pipeline is the building right below, the new Museum of Modern Art (Museum of Modern Rubbish ).

We were/I was only looking at the European Union.

"and all these cities being highlighted on this thread were being crushed and erased during the 2nd world war" - another London-centric overestimation? Moscow was there, too, you know?

UPD: actually, Saint Basil's Cathedral (next picture) of Moscow is older (built during 1555–61) than St Paul's Cathedral (1675-1720). It is a lot smaller, though.

Wow Warsaw's skyline is really coming along nicely. All those clean lines and buildings give it a North American feel.
