My castle is better then your castle.
The best castle in Swedish history was a Norwegian one :^)
Are you jealous?
I see the beauty nearly every day.
>doesn't even have sexy thick walls in a slick starshape
"Look up in an index of any history book and you'll find that Bohus has more pages than Kalmar"
Come on, that's a rather stupid argument. It's says in the Bible that Kalmar is more important :^)
Bohus has never been taken in combat, even though it has been sieged 14 times. It has been one of the most important castles in Norway, Denmark and Sweden.
Kalmar was... conquered once. That's about it. It isn't a very important castle in the grand scheme of things
Even the old city was walled. That because it's non-important
The mural in front is even by Picasso himself. Unfortunately the building is currently scheduled for demolition.
Borgholm Castle, somewhat empty. The king that deluged Poland lived here for a few years. During summer concert are held there.
One last brutalist piece.
>tfw don't live in Chile
Why even live
I don't know if I'd want to live there, but Santiago doesn't seem awful I guess.
Santiago is pig disgunsting.
This is like every morning and every afternoon.
Did trains from line 5 have the same problem?
>i-it's not that bad
That's pretty much every 6-9 AM and arround 6-9 PM, imagine buses, imagine streets and avenues. Pig disgusting.
Garden Bridge planned for London.
Thoughts on the design?
It's bad but I think the pics make it look worse than it is, sometimes it's on par with Japan but only when they're having issues with some of the trains / stations and not at all times.
And parts of Santiago are rather poor but the north-eastern half is quite nice.
nz cities always look so heavenly with it their vibrant green and blue colors. i'd like to live there.
New Zealand is nice. Their fjords look like ours, but with more flightless birds and less trolls.
Can Sao Paulo be compared to the NY of South America with Buenos Aires to the Chicago?
Depends on how its finished though. Hope its not just colored concrete.
We're big euroboos in the Northeast.
>Chicago, you can see the Trump Tower :^)
Tianjin looks relatively good as for a Chinese city
Shanghai has a lot of colonial architecture.
>$60 5-star hotels
Fuck I might visit. Is it safe?
even Swedish castles look gay
Viipurinlinna in Vyborg which was lost to Soviet Union in 1944.
>tfw idiots keep trying to sue a Museum because they can't read
I might visit this summer then, looks comfy.
Does anyone even like these types of buildings?
Vyborg used to be the second largest city in Finland and it's the only Finnish town still having medieval buildings. Nowadays it's shit and ruined because of the Russians.
That's Museo Soumaya by Fernando Romero aka Carlos Slim's son in law.
>the castle of Kajaani :D
This really shows of the mentality we had in the 60-80s towards historical buildings
The cluster of skyscrapers on the left did not exist until 2008. In fact, most of them have only been built in the past 2-3 years, with several more to come.
That long building in the foreground is supposed to be a transportation hub with possible high-speed rail in the future. It's also going to have a park right above it. Hopefully the place won't be infested with bums.
For those who think Brazil's Capital is Rio de Janeiro or Buenos Aires...
Ladies and gentlemen... Brasília!
If the rail is cheap it will be trust me. Hopefully you're city bans bums entirely.
Hey can't be worse than when I lived in Florida.
>nothing to do because middle of nowhere
>humid as shit so sitting outside was terrible
>had an ammonia leak once where it was so thick everything was covered in a fog of it
>trailer park trash everywhere
