Turks are extremely nationalistic due to country's imperial past and its upbringings with the democratic republic regime. However, it is only for 3 days in a year. The Republic Day, The Sovereignty and Children's Day and The Youth and Sports Day

I know it seems very autocratic/dictatorial when you look at it from outside but if you look deeper, you would see what the country has been through. It is not easy to be a western nation with a decent democracy right next to countries like Iraq, Syria and Iran. It is not easy to have a muslim majority population and still be a western democracy. These days represent the westernization of Turks as a whole. These days represent Ataturk's "modern European Turkey" vision. These days are the mile stones of the "European idea" in Turkey. Only 90 years ago it was the Ottoman Empire so it is still a hot topic. My father's grandmother is still alive and she was born in the Ottoman Empire as an Ottoman citizen. Those flags mean waaaayyy more than what it looks like.

Do you really find them interesting? Density is nice, but except the tall glass building the rest looks rather cheap to me.
There is a lot of criticism about the buildings (High-rises) in Rotterdam, but the buildings on the photo of the Maslak cluster aren't any better.
The buildings remind me of a bussines area in Rotterdam/Capelle aan den IJssel which is named 'Rivium'.

Most of the buildings in Maslak are from early 90s, before the construction boom which increased the quality of the materials, designs and the workmanship. As Dogu said most of the Turkish members would agree that they are ugly as hell, that's also the reason why we don't share pics of Maslak so often

Moscow's scrapers seem to take aaages to be build. Russian economy and outlook is already not that rosy anymore, I guess...
