Throughout the history of architecture, there has been a continual quest for height. Thousands of workers toiled on the pyramids of ancient Egypt, the cathedrals of Europe and countless other towers, all striving to create something awe-inspiring. People build tall buildings primarily because they are convenient – you can create a lot of real estate out of a relatively small ground area.

But ego and grandeur do sometimes play a significant role in the scope of the construction, just as it did in earlier civilizations. Up until relatively recently, we could only go so high. After a certain point, it just wasn’t feasible to keep building up. In the late 1800s, new technology redefined these limits. Suddenly, it was possible to live and work in colossal towers, hundreds of feet above the ground.

Here are the top 20 tallest buildings in Europe.
