SDriver Why boring russian pictures always get high scores? Because russian bots vote 5 regardless of the quality of the picture.  +4
Davidinho You think they are boring, another one thinks they are nice. You rate it 3, others rate it 5, Ukrainians rate it 1... This is called democracy. And your particular opinion is worthless. All the voters together decide whether the banner is boring or not. As for me, I think it's extremely interesting. Such a lot of highrises 250 years ago. Some modern megalopolises cannot be proud of such a dense skyline.  +27
SDriver Only Moscow was good recently and worthy of skyscrapercity. because of moscow-city.  
Exethalion Your political opinion of Russia should not factor in. I think this is a great historical painting and shows how cities looked in the early Renaissance era.  +7
Proterra Exethalion; "Early Renaissance era." - Kazan, 1767. I guess Lenin brought the Russian reformation :-P  +1
kokomo More boring are lost-in-the-middle-of-nowhere Brazilian villages. Those tend to pop up at a rate of 1 or 2 every 10 days...  +1
Sorry for my English @Exethalion, don't disgrace yourself:) If you don't know European history, why are you write about "the early Renaissance era"?  
Exethalion Yes guys calm your titties, I meant late Renaissance which was the European era of the time.  
Exethalion @Sorry for my English, what on Earth do you talk about? "Don't know European history" because I misplaced a single word?  
Nightjar 1/5 - it's not the Kazan I know.  
Davidinho Then the Kazan you know is 5/5? Nice!  +3

Зуфар-Казань How many of the current cities with magnificent skyscrapers exist in 1767?  +5
SDriver More than you think.  +4
Davidinho Interesting question. Chicago was settled in 1780's. LA was founded in 1781. San Fransisco in 1850. Auckland was a Maori fishing village before 1840. Sydney was established in 1788. Brisbane - 1825. Perth 1829. Melbourne - 1835. Adelaide - 1836. Toronto was established in 1793 as York. Vancouver - 1886. Most cities in Arabian Peninsula either didn't exist before 20th century, or were quite villages before the petroleum boom. There are a lot of brand new cities all over South-Eastern Asia and China. Most cities in South America, South Africa are so-called planned cities and were founded in the 19th-20th centuries.  +13
