Certaily I would say that itīs one of the best new skyscrapers of Europe, which is a lot to say, taking into account that in our continent buidling skyscrapers is usually very difficult. Better of worse than Moscow? It depends...I love Moscowīs new skyscrapers too, but I never get tired of admiring Madridīs four towers. Thatīs all.

Not to take anything away from these buildings, but I'm amazed how many page views and comments they are getting. 173,279 and 1265 respectively. That's a lot.

Well, the actual eastern boundary of Europe is quite a bit east of Moscow at the north-south line of the Ural mountains so, yes, Moscow is in Europe though from a political mind set, most people don't associate it with Europe.

Europe is a geographical term, not a political one.

Yes, they are nicest towers in Europe.
Sorry, but Russia is not part of Europe ; only members of EU are. To be a member of a federation of any kind, you have to be politically and economically linked (and similar) to the other members, which is not the case of Russia.
BTW, I love Russia Tower and Crystal Island!

So is that meaning that countries like Norway or Switzerland cannot be considered European either for the reasons you are saying? Sounds quite silly to me I'm sorry...
Russia is naturally part of Europe geographically, historically and culturally although they are not a member of the EU.

Still all your statments, Moscow is in Europe. But I am sure we don't say which is the best skyline in Europe. Cuatro Torres of Madrid are wonderful, Russia towers are smart and tall, London bridge tower is amazing, a lot of parisian projects are interesting and Frankfurt has some beautifull projects too but I don't think we can judge about the best european skyscraper beaucause there are all interresting (in my opinion)
I am happy to see all Europe begin to build some skyscrapers and I hope there will be other projects in Madrid, London, Milan, Paris, Frankfurt or Moscow.

Exactly, and in the case of Madrid, there isn't a proper skyline yet in my opinion, although it looks promising.

Maybe i have to change my way of thinking....or maybe not.

Anyway, and back on topic! Madrid's CTBA looks great and I hope will be further added to in the future.

Favourite of the four?......Definitely Repsol, the one that looks like a giant Harmonica.

Actually you don't need to have a too much opened mind to find out that Europe is more like a political-social term than a geographical term.
