Besides Berlin's TV Tower is still higher than Eiffel Tower.

Torreta de Guardamar in Spain being the number 1 tallest structure in the EU.

Ostankino would be the tallest building in Europe then, because it also has a cafe at the top.

Since the Mercury Tower construction is very slow now the Shard has a big chance to become the tallest in Europe.
Let's be expressed correctly. Not in Europe and the European continent, but there is every chance but not for long. Mercury began being completed

EU!!

To say something about the shard:
I actually find it kinda dull and simple. And there's something that makes the cladding (at least for me) look cheap. Yeah, it's big, the biggest in Europe... but it's not necessarily a marvel of architecture (at least for me).
