Best Shopping Centres of Eastern Europe: The Poll


Introduction:
It's where we see and buy the latest fashion trends or where we go to meet friends and spend not only time, but money. Shopping centres are conveinient, bringing many different unrelated wares into one area for the public.

In this thread, we will vote for our favourite shopping centres.

Voting Guidelines:
  1. Each member has to vote for exactly five (5) nominees on the list. Do not vote for any less, or any more. There are no exceptions! The votes of whoever chooses to disregard this rule will be omitted from the final count.

  2. Do your best to vote as honestly and fairly as possible, putting all of your biases aside. This does not mean that, for example, you cannot vote for your city/country. It means that you should vote for the nominees that you think truly deserve to be in the top league.

  3. Review all of the pictures posted for the nominations, even if you think you remember all of them from the nominations thread. This will refresh them in your mind, allowing you to make a wiser choice.
Nominees:
  • Globus Underground Mall (Kyiv, Ukraine)
  • Europa Mall (Vilnius, Lithuania)
  • Stary Browar (Poznan, Poland)
  • Mandarin Plaza (Kyiv, Ukraine)
  • GUM Centre (Moscow, Russia)
  • BTC (Ljubljana, Slovenia)
  • Athens Commerical Center (Athens, Greece)
  • Mercator Centre (Belgrade, Serbia & Montenegro)
  • Arkadia (Warsaw, Poland)

thanks delfin, I was about to say the same thing. ... it's been getting better recently, but it's still a bit of an issue. I'm no longer deleting 50 votes in the polls now though, so it's an improvement

If anyone doesn't vote properly you still do have a chance to correct it, it's best if you send me a pm to correct your votes though. I may miss it in the thread.

Hunter's row is so underrated, I think it's a very beautiful historical place for a shopping centre and it's modern inside.

@Mike! What is that?

King Cross in Zagreb is not a shopping centre or mall, it is a supermarket ala Spar, Metro, Konzum, Mercatone, Lidl etc etc etc... jeeeez.

Why didnt you nominate some real thing like Importanne Galerija, Importanne Centar or Kaptol Centar?

p.s. good thing is that 'Farmer Jack' didnt come to Croatia yet

Anyone who votes for Arizona Market should be disqualified from participating in the Best of EE series. I submitted it as a joke, Nate.

Better photos would help your case, unfortunately the photos that are up don't show any spectacular.

"Lined up naked on wooden crates women and girls are pinched and prodded by potential bidders. Prices start at $500 and go as high as $10,000 for the young and pretty. Girls are as young as 12. The buyers plan to make their money back within a week. This isn't a scene from an 18th century slave auction, but an open air female sex slave auction called the Arizona market in a district called Brcko in Bosnia."
