2. Christmas and winter holidays spirit.
3. High-culture and historical heritage. Tons of museums and theater. World-famous ballet companies and opera theaters.
4. Moscow subway system.
there are also things that are nicer about DUBAI imo.
for example the sea, i always love the sea.
and the desert is also really nice.
warm temperatures can be a plus.

and im speaking really objective, i love moscows newer skyscrapers

I'm glad we could delete any posts supporting the west in this thread, and keep all the pro Moscow ones.
It really lets your readers know how this site works.

No matter how much money Dubai wants to invest. It's not just a cluster of supertalls and bunch skyscrapper towers here and there for Moscow, there is much much more.
I was never talking about this. Of course I know that the geography of Dubai and Moscow are as day and night. I was referring to the structure of the skyline disregarding the architecture and the idea of having so many supertalls close together

To me, the IBC today is very similar to what LA was in the 1980's, which is to say imposingly tall and highly futuristic. Since then, LA went through an uncharacteristically long lull in its (skyline) development process, and never evolved the Bladerunner type skyline that was expected by now. So in a lot of ways you could argue that the LA skyline has passed the torch to something bigger and better in Moscow.

LA's new U/C Wilshire Grand looks like it would fit in really well with the IBC. I also think a lot of the IBC towers would fit into the LA skyline. Ever since City of Capitals was built, Moscow's skyline has reminded me of a fresher, glassier version of LA. I can definitely see where you are coming from with that comment.

lol!it just doesn't make sens to compare Moscow with Los Angeles!
NYCruiz was probably refering to the highway's network.
Also,neither Moscow nor Beautiful Los Angeles are real skyscraper cities;they both have some cheap clusters of mediocre towers like many european cities.
The gems they contains are elsewhere!
Imo,Moscow should have been well inspired to check what was done in beautiful Berlin!

That reflection of Evolution-Tower on Imeria-Tower looks cool.
