I like the towers in Moscow but they seem to be all very large and too close to eachother.

It's a business district like La Defence but smaller and less interesting for the moment. Doesn't seem like it's well integrated with the rest of the city and will probably get empty after the office hours but at least the towers are pretty high...

OMG
1)The total area of MIBC - 4.5 million square meters. This is approximately equal to the area of La DÚfense.
2) unique supertall cluster with an average height of 280 meters it is "less interesting"?
3)On the territory of MIBC have 2 metro stations. Another 1 metro station and S-Banh under construction. Nearby is one of the main roads of Moscow - the Third Ring Road.Or do you mean the absence of near tall buildings? It is done intentionally. In the future, vacant lots around the MIBC will be built up with high rises.
4)Empty ... no coment.

I'm not talking about the superiority. I just pointed to the lie about the size of MIBC and poor integration.

My top ten


Proper top ten this time ..


1. London- quality and diversity and immense

2. Moscow- Wow factor and immense

3. Paris- Pristine and beautiful... lacks the wow factor tho.. and lacks diversity.

4. Istanbul- No city on earth can compare to this .. Unique is not the word. . But for now it's skyline lacks cohesion..... For now...

5. Warsaw/Frankfurt- Both similar sized cities.. both possess fantastic skylines... However, just now they seem to be heading in different directions.


6. Now it get's tricky ... So many pretty mediocre cities are hawked on these pages I'm going for a few which are just as good if not better than those which are relentlessy shoved in our faces ... ....

Vienna


7. Hague


8. Liverpool


9. Birmingham



10. Berlin

When I said that it's smaller I didn't mean the size of this area or the boundaries of a district one might check with a map but rather the number of buildings I could see on the photos and general impression.
As for the integration it's a bit more than some public communication or a road. This district gives the impression of a business island surrounded by a city rather than being a part of it and even with it's height it doesn't affect the Moscow panorama that much because the city is so big.
As for the life what about people actually living there? I think many forummers would laugh when you mentioned a mall as part of the city life but I would say it is something, but still not really comperable with La Defence that had similar problems btw so it might change with time.

Russian folks seem to have quite a bit of trouble trying to speak English. No one could speak English when I was in Moscow last summer, not even the passport inspection officers. It makes me very skeptical about the Russian education system. I am really wondering why you guys don't speak foreign languages when Russia is a major player in international business and gradually expanding its market throughout the globe. Is English not on high demand or is this because of incompetent education system? How do you land jobs after college?

No, show all of them for both cities or not at all, because now It's pure manipulation.

First of all, I don't know how russian education system works, but judging it by ability to speak english is unfair and a little bit absurd. Russia always had different area of influence, english is not a priority for them in an way it seems.


Nonetheless I also cannot agree with this: 'Russia is a major player in international business and gradually expanding its market throughout the globe'.
The reality is harsh:

There is huge difference between learning French and speaking it!

In the UK everyone learns French in school but practically no one can speak it fluently.
