Above: towering over the London Eye though standing two and half kilometres to its east, the Shard is the most prominent building along the skyline seen from Hyde Park. To the left of the pic, Rotten Row, the horse track running through the park (in 1690 this became London's first artificially-lit thoroughfare).
Dwarfed by the Shard, to its left, we can see the world's tallest hospital, Guys, with its 34 floors and standing a mere 142m high.
The location is more central than one thinks - Canary Wharf and London's second-highest skyscraper are another 5km further east.
Drop Warsaw on top of London, and it almost gets lost. But then living in a smaller capital city has its rewards too - the countryside's nearer.
