I dislike Paris very much. Such a kitsch city made by one man who wasn't even an architect. Paris is nothing but a giant disneyland project.

Pity.
Not like I care nor I am a side in this "war" but saying Paris is kitsch is ridiculous. Paris is monumental, stunning, very European, maybe a bit to dense (not much green areas) in many aspects kind of reminds me Budapest. London is chaotic, repetitive, copy paste red brick, wet row houses makes up biggest part of city - kind of depressive, schizophrenic dream alike.

Woaw mens, have you finish your battle upon Paris and London?

Paris and London are both amazing cities, probably two of the five best cities in the world along with NY, Tokyo and Shanghai.

Its not the place for saying which is the WORST city of Europe but, the place to say which is the BEST! IN YOUR OPINION!

I already said that, for me Paris is my favorite city, but I wouldn't say that London is bad! In contrary. After Paris, London is probably my favorite city in the world. I like, the architecture of London, his modernity, his electricity, his culture and his business.

So I love London as I like Paris, and even if Paris is my favorite, I take London deep in my heart.

Then, Parisian and Londonian, stop this stupid war, it is not impossible to like both this two cities.

And remember, Frenchmen and Englishmen, in this world, and for the rest of humanity, we are both Europeans. And if we doesn't want to be friends, we SHOULD!

Who is "we"? What does my French friends have anything to do with the urban design of Paris? I am really wondering. I would just prefer the beautiful medieval Paris over the Haussman's disneyland project. How am I trolling the thread when you people post zillions of La Defense pictures and blindly defense Paris against any criticism. You are the one, trolling the thread. Don't call people "troll" just because they don't share the same opinions with you. Grow up.

Stop with La Defense and let us see some other cities please.

So what ?
It's a reason for bashing a city?
If I said a stupidity like "itambul is nothing but a third world cities" you would be outraged.

Last time I posted a pictures on this thread, you were not even on Skyscrapers city...
And i see more pictures of Francfurt, London, Milan and Moscow than Paris here...

Well, when I see your pictures of Istanbul doguorsi2 and, when I see the Baboulinet's picture, I think that peoples of Europe are very lucky to have so many beautiful cities and skylines.

And even if our cities are thousand years old, they are still very modernes.

I am not bashing anything dear friend. I was just expressing my opinion. We call it freedom of speech over here. If you don't like it, please ignore it or kindly discuss it with me. I would be glad to hold a conversation with you about it. You can call Istanbul a third world city, in fact there are a lot of ghettos in Istanbul that I personally call third world. We don't achieve a better version of ourselves if we ignore our faults and re-do our mistakes. Btw that last picture you posted is unique!

"Last time I posted a pictures on this thread, you were not even on Skyscrapers city... "

I know! I am sorry I didn't have time join earlier and chit chat with you. I was busy working on my graduation project in the architecture school.

This is why I am proud to be European Actually, Turkish member Erhan has the best pictures of Istanbul. I am really impressed with the pictures he finds.
You can find some of them here :

You get me completely wrong mate. It is not that I don't want to see Paris. Just some of the pictures you guys posted are very repetitive and doesn't help to show other views of the skyline. Same goes for the Frankfurt. There is a single picture of Frankfurt and it is on every single page I just think that seeing variety of pictures from different angles would help us to feel the city in a better way.

Try to come during the spring/summer season if you can. Turkish people go to southern Turkey for vacation which means lesser traffic and more enjoyment.

Istanbul is no doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and its urban landscape has the immense privilege of spanning 2000 years of architecture history, from Roman empire temples to glassy skyscrapers, from Ottoman mosques to 19th century palaces. Absolutely unique...

Plus, the city is populated by adorable, gorgeous and friendly cats, which is way better than the usual pigeons you find in many European cities

That said reducing Paris to Haussman's planning is very unfair, as the city itself still boasts 2 very large older neighborhoods (from the Middle Ages to XVIIIth century) in Le Marais and Saint-Germain-des-Prés/Quartier Latin +numerous pockets of villagey areas (Montmartre, Butte aux Cailles, Mouzaia, Auteuil, Passy, etc.). Grand Hausmannian boulevards indeed criss-cross Paris urban fabric, but the streets in-between are far more diverse than people expect and are really worth exploring.

And I don't event mention the surrounding "suburbs" (actually more neighborhood of the newly formed Grand Paris administrative entity), which have been mostly ignored by Haussman's revamping.

I should check those villages in my next visit then! Thanks for the info. I have been to Bordeaux, Nice, Strasbourg and Toulouse besides Paris. Strasbourg was a little Germany inside France. Toulouse was heavily Spaniard influenced, especially the residential blocks and government buildings. Nice was like any other Turkish coastal city. But.... BORDEAUX!!! I left my heart there. I can't wait to go back and spend days in the wineries. It was one of the classiest cities I have ever seen.
