I don't think he was trying to say that so much. Frankfurt afterall is a key player within the EU and is head of the single currency market.

It is 2nd in Europe and within the top 10 across the world.

It is definately a major financial centre.

It's funny enough but you can check the importance of the European cities in terms of finance by checking the passanger statistic of London City airport: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London_City_Airport

Zurich is way ahead of every other city, than it's Amsterdam (probably just being to hub to get to Americas and Asia), Geneva and Frankfurth being 4th if you don't count the second UK finance hub - Edinburgh. It's almost matching this list after all: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_..._Centres_Index

Thanks for the link. That list surprises me a bit. Switzerland has 2 cities in the Top 10, Boston is #2 in the US, Los Angeles isn't even mentioned and Vancouver, Montreal and Calgary are only separated by 1 point from each other, respectively.

That is interesting. Although flights could be dependant on alot of things - size of airport, accessibility etc, etc.

Again. There are many different types of financial aspects to the importance of a city.

Frankfurt certainly is important. GFCI has it in the top 10, behind London, Zurich and Geneva, The IFCDI ranks it 7th. Above Paris and Zurich but only behind London. WCCI ranks Frankfurt 8th in terms of commerce only behind London and Paris.

Statistically Frankfurt is seen as a financial centre as big as any other in Europe except London.

I think Frankfurt isn't a real reflection of its economy the second largest world exporter after China, I think Germany has the best economy in EU mainly becuase of its manufacturing and exports worldwide and the Eurozone but then it was crippled by EU expansion and the recession , thats why anti-eu party has been formed in Germany,UKIP in UK etc.. Whenever the economy is down you get poverty, unemployment , nationalism etc...

Yekatrinburg
I was right all along about the spelling of that city and whoever corrected me was wrong


Google spelling of Yekatrinburg

The windows of the 151 m building U/C in Yekatrinburg made to look as a Hebrew scripture!

dont really think ur right about UKIP there tbh. ukip was going in the boom years, not a reaction to the bad times. the UK has always had an anti EU side of one sort or another, tho maybe become more popular now EU in complete chaos

interesting ranking anyway... especially Zurich (5) and Geneva (7)... so important yet no single skyscrapper (those are to nice and cosy cities to spoil the old skyline with skyscrappers probably)
Skyscrapers don't mean much. At the end of the day, they are simply real estate.

Google spelling of Yekatrinburg

Do you know Greek/Russian name Yekaterina? It's derivative from this name hence Yekaterin - burg as a city.

I love how you you still spelled it wrong two times in this post It is not Yekatrinburg (like you wrote) but Yekaterinburg (City of Katherine), even your link does tell us so. Missing "e" all the way Sorry I must have, mate

BTW, it is still just a transcription from Cyrillic Екатеринбург, so it can be done many ways after all. Sorry for the OT.

As for European skylines the most coherent and just beautiful IMHO is still Frankfurt. Then the mighty London with its many clusters. I also love how Warsaw's Skyscrapers merge with the historical part of the city (although it's skyline still needs much much investment compared to the beforementioned and Moscow and Paris). Moscow is going very strong too (although I would finally skip the red star upon stalinist buildings, you do not really use swastika in Germany, don't you).

Google said that I'm right , and every internet reference is referred to it as Yekaterinburg and that is that!
Wikpedia and google yahoo call it Yekaterinburg
In English is Catherine not Catherene
The main argument here if (I) is present

Well, if you want to lecture us about the derivation of names, you should at least know, that "burg" does not mean "city". It's German for castle.
