I perceive it as a resort for uncultured British people who go there to drink in British pubs and bars, eat British food and watch British TV

1. Paris (by far the nicest IMO).
2. Frankfurt (nice, but i don't like some towers).
3. Madrid (i really like the new towers and the divesity of older towers).
4. Rotterdam (nice, but i don't like the diversity of towers).
5. London (nice, but has to much boxy-towers).

Not so many Rotterdam pictures, and since Rotterdam is changin every single day, here are some recent pictures!;

They are made by 909;


















And The Hague, pictures are also by 909. From the same thread (because The Hague is visible from Rotterdam and visa versa);







[b]And again Rotterdam, during the Red Bull Air Race, by Apollyon;[/i]

Rotterdam looks very good!
But common, Warsaw and Liverpool got more votes than London! This is ridiculous!

Nowadays, Paris (La Defense), Frankfurt am Main and Rotterdam have the best sets.
But, in a few years London, Moscow and Warsow will be fighting for title...
