Baku on list of three green capital cities of Europe in 2010

Quote:
The Azerbaijani capital city has received a status of a European capital under the next nomination for 2010.

According to sources in Azerbaijan's Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, the UN Environmental Program declared Baku the European capital of environmental protection for 2010. This status was also provided to Italian Genoa and Swiss Geneva.

The ministry considers that this decision was caused by the successful implementation of environmental programs by the authorities of the country.

If you mean Flame Towers, very few floors are left. In mid 2011 the project will be completed so we will see that panorama in better colours

I like those u/c towers in Baku as they look in Galandar's photos; are the second tallest structures in Baku, right?

Thanks Christos! You are absolutely right. Flame Towers which is seen on the above pictures is the tallest actual project in Baku and second tallest among ongoing under construction projects after 200 m SOCAR Tower
