aarhusforever always posts very low quality pics of Moscow. It would be so nice if he leave Moscow alone and post Frankfurt or London pics only.

Poor aarhusforever, he's gonna realize now the power of russophobic attitude. Is this an example of high-quality pic of London?

I'm sorry you feel like that, Fulger2013, but you are more than welcome to post your own photos of Moscow

I spend a lot of time finding skylinepictures and I usually use Flickr, as it is rather easy to find skylinephotos of most European cities. Moscow skylinephotos however is very hard to find on Flickr...I usually find Moscow skyline photos from russian forums, but mostly the photos are not creditet and then one is not allowed to post them in SSC...so to answer your question...I post skylinephotos from Moscow, when I find them on Flickr and If I find them interesting ...oh and by the way, I love the skyline of Moscow just as much as the skylines of the other great European cities

moscow skyline is currently the best in europe and it will be even better when it gets a few more highrises around that massive cluster contains many supertalls.

Well, may be in German it does, but In other languages it might mean slightly different. For example in English bourgh means town or community and in Russia, burg was used few times to mean town also, for example:http://touch.otvet.mail.ru/question/17967119
So in Russia, burg means town or city more than anything else.

The English influence was never so strong in Russia as German ones.

In Russia, "burg" means fortress (citadel) that was originally built at the site of future city. So, it can be translated as "fortress city". For example, the name of Saint Petersburg is derived from Peter and Paul Fortress which was built at the Hare Island.

This is text of original decree of 1723 about naming of Yekaterinburg. Originally it was the fortress that was built on the Iset River and named in the honour of Yekaterina I (Catherine I), the wife of Peter the Great and future Empress of Russia:

The city of Orenburg was built as fortress near the Or River:
