This is not obvious yet.
The Shard may become the tallest in Europe for a while. It might happen that the Shard will have been built but the Mercury tower (being taller) will be u/c

I took some pictures from the train/station of The Shard today, how do I post them on here? Will I have to create a Flickr account or an equivalent and then embed the URL into the post? Thanks

GPO Tower City view by xtinalamb, on Flickr[/img][/QUOTE]

The shot is indeed taken from Fitzrovia's BT Tower and is overlooking the East-South East of London.

The prominent greenish cupola is British Museum's Great Court Roof (1999-2000, Norman Foster and Partners and Buro Happold)
Here is an inside view of it:

stop your childish!

I say that the modern aspect of london is much more impressing than the ancient couterpart!

In paris it's the contrary i mean. Old parts still better than new parts.

In London it is the modern part that redefines the city. it hasn't the historical limitations seen in some european cities (rome, paris, madrid...)
