10. Paris -- 9,780,800 (3.3%)
This list have wrong numbers , as even in 2013, Paris had 16.8 millions of foreign tourists and 15.7 of local ones. Even if the figures for Asian cities were true, and that only Paris figures were wrong (which i highly doubt) the city would rank 3, between Bangkok and Singapore.

As my Russian friends said, Russia is part Europe too so we are not compare themselves with whole Europe. We do it with some European countries (not Italy by the way), because they are more developed than Russia. It is not bad. It is just a sort of incentive for us.

I want to understand why so many freaks always express they hostility to Russia. Perhaps it some sort of complex, isn`t?

What source do you have for this, there are countless sources that state London is ahead in this regard. I'm just interested why you think otherwise?

Is a structure and not classed as a habitable building, in the same way the BT Tower in London is 177m in height, however is not a skyscraper as it's not habitable.

Anyway this sort of debate Isn't what this thread is for, by all means discuss which European city will have the best Skyline in 10 years time, anything else is off topic!

Yes : http://www.visitparisregion.com/

As i have frequently explained on ssc, it is often only central Paris (2.6 millions inhabitants) that is part of the numbers instead of the whole city (+/-11.5 million inhabitants). For instance Eurodisney and Versailles are not part of these numbers.
Other sources (official and french) only counted people sleeping in hotels (excluding auberges de jeunesses, camping, rent a house...)

I'll give you this point as it's true that Eiffel tower is non habitable (but we could argue that the first floors have is visitables, and that a restaurant is on top of the building.

You are also right that this is not the good thread, my apologies.

Она станет самым высоким зданием "Екатеринбург-Сити" и будет закончена к 300-летию города.


"Екатерину" и концерт-холл построят к 300-летию Екатеринбурга.
В УГМК озвучили планы по строительству нового небоскрёба на площадке "Екатеринбург-Сити". Об этом стало известно накануне Иннопрома. Завтра будет подписано соответствующее соглашение с мэрией Екатеринбурга.

"Екатерина" – это 300-метровое многофункциональное здание, которое станет самым высоким небоскрёбом комплекса в частности и Екатеринбурга в целом. Небоскрёб должен украсить город к его 300-летию. Ранее самое высокое здание комплекса планировали назвать "Урал".



– После ввода в эксплуатацию "Екатерина" станет самым высоким небоскрёбом не только делового квартала "Екатеринбург-Сити", но и всей уральской столицы. 62-этажная башня высотой около 300 метров и общей площадью 124 тысячи квадратных метров расположится на пересечении улиц Бориса Ельцина и Челюскинцев и уравновесит по композиции уже построенную УГМК башню "Исеть", – рассказал Е1.RU представитель УГМК.

К возведению "Екатерины" планируется приступить в 2018 году, а завершить стройку в 2022 году.

Напомним, концепция "Екатеринбург-Сити" предполагает строительство на площади в 7,5 гектара в квадрате улиц Челюскинцев, Бориса Ельцина, Боевых Дружин и Октябрьской Революции более 400 тысяч квадратных метров коммерческих, торговых площадей и апартаментов, а также объектов социальной инфраструктуры. Презентовали обновлённый проект комплекса в прошлом году в сентябре.

Ранее проект комплекса – с башнями "Исеть", "Урал", "Татищев" и "Де Геннин" – спроектировало французское архитектурное бюро Жана Пистра. Впоследствии "медники" отказались от него в пользу проекта немецких архитекторов Хельмута Яна и Вернера Зобека. На месте комплекса расположено несколько купеческих усадеб (некоторые - памятники архитектуры), поэтому против строительства комплекса в этом месте нередко протестует ряд общественников.

Основу комплекса должны составить четыре высотки, расположенные по углам застраиваемого квартала, а также здания меньшей этажности между ними. В центре "Екатеринбург-Сити" разместится общественная зона с торговыми, досуговыми и социальными объектами.

Одним из них должен стать универсальный зал с возможностью организации акустических концертов до 2 000 мест. Предположительно, это будет здание высотой 25 метров и общей площадью 25 тысяч квадратных метров. Строительство концерт-холла планируется начать в 2020 году, а закончить в 2023 году.

NC-LDN posted this. Looks good. Take into account the skyline of stratford, Canary Wharf, Greenwich Peninsular, Nine Elms, Elephant and Castle and London is going to be pretty special.
