Yes, highway strip is a thing (not only in the former Eastern Block) but Paris was planned with cavalry charges in mind I guess.

More like parades and showing off in general, in fact this part of Warsaw is called the Parade Square and as was said wide roads were considered modern at the time.
Cities in the east of the continent were either heavily destroyed during the war or poorly developed to begin with (or both as in the case of Minsk) and because private property rights were rather limited planners could do much more than in most of western Europe (although not everything, especially since relatively few people actually had cars).

While Warsaw was indeed bombed from the air and with heavy artillery most of the damage was a result of months of looting and planned destruction by German demolition squads that methodologically destroyed building after building when the city was already evacuated after the failed uprising.

Cardiff, not bad, considering size of the city.

Both Frankfurt and London WOW


In the meantime, in Moscow the triplets of Capital Towers are rising so quickly that they will already dominate the skyline from this angle in the summer of 2020. Though their dominance won't last long

The ugly grey building and the wrapped tower have been acquired (not for cheap) by Coima Sgr, the developer of most of Porta Nuova.

They hopefully will be replaced by something better.
