    The skyscraper 30 St Mary Axe is a real implementation of the Business center in the game Megapolis. The 180 metres (591 ft) high construction was built in 2003 and was rewarded as the world’s best skyscraper.
    Due to its unusual form and for the greenish shade of its triangulated perimeter structure London the building was called ‘The Gherkin’. 40 floors of the construction combine business and pleasure: visitors may walk around in the lower floors and have a delicious dinner at the higher floor restaurants.
    The skyscraper became rather popular and even appeared in one of Harry Potter films. The building bringing good profit to the owners is constructed in an energy-saving mode compared to other buildings of this type.

    Dear players, today we will tell you about a unique architectural masterpiece.

    Palmanova is a unique town and citadel located in Italy, 120 kilometers from Venice. It was built in the 16th century to commemorate the victory of European forces (supplied primarily by the Venetian republic) over Ottoman Turks in the Battle of Lepanto.
    This tiny town was designed in the shape of a nine-pointed star. Between the points of the star protrude ramparts that allow the points to defend each other. Three large, guarded gates control all entry to the town. Palmanova is the best example of a Renaissance-era walled town. At present, it has a population of about 5,400 people.
    During World War One, the citadel became the center of distribution and supply for the army. After the Battle of Caporetto, the town was set on fire by retreating Italian forces.
    Palmanova was proclaimed a national monument by a presidential decree of 1960.

    Have the history built in your Megapolis!

    I agree, I appreciate knowing which lesser-known buildings are real so I can Google them. I already do if they have their real names in the game, but for the other ones, I'm certainly curious.
