Well the Ukrain is not currently in the EU and that skyline is not currently standing (during its construction the other cities have time to make thiers much more advanced anyway). Also from the above render I find that proposed skyline quite sickly and gimiky.

I think the designs of these towers are just fillers. I hope it won't be exactly like that!

No, Ukraine will surely NOT join the EU, if even Turkey after decades of trying to become a member hasn't managed until today. Honestly the EU has already become way too large and has it's difficulties to rule itself. We don't need any more members making administration fo the EU impossible...
Please don't make such stupid comments since Ukrain is DE FACTO NOT EU! And these towers are DE FACT NOT BUILT but merely visons of the future.

I'm from Warsaw
1)Paris
2)Frankfurt am Main
3) Rotterdam

London represents quality but on these photos i can see only 3-4 really tall buildngs.
Barcelona is a joke here for the same reason.
I really like skyline of Liverpool
I don't like Madrid and Birmingham
Warsaw can chalenge Paris and Frankfurt but we need more buildings.

No Indeed, but on the other hand Monaco is more integrated than some recent EU members.
Monaco is member of the Schengen area (since the Schengen Agreement exists) and it's a member of the euro currency zone (with its own euro coins, since Euro currency exists) :

Monegasque euro coins (if you find some, keep them because they're very rare) :


Of course Monaco is a sovereign country, but it also has more than a "special relationship" with France (Monaco policy must always stay in conformity with French interests), so their independence is quite relative.
A blockade of Monaco by France has already happened (in 1962) and could happen again .

Skyline (try to find the border between EU and Monaco )

By the way, Warsaw and Paris LD skyline lack the water, that's why they won't ever reach the class and augustness of Frankfurt

At least I can see the enormous rock in the background which is right above Cap d'Ail (where we made our school prom journey in my last year on school) which is already in France and if I am not wrong 2km from Monaco. However a great place!

Seems to be a good place for such a trip. We stayed there 10 days in September. The others went to Berlin and London and had rainy sh*t weather - we came back with a tan and had much fun. 10 days of sun, warm weather and warm water!
