Best Modern Skyline of Eastern Europe - Part 1

Ok, I want to create a series of interactive activities here on the Eastern European forum.

For the first activity, I want you to suggest the best Modern Skyline of Eastern Europe, and then, we can vote on the top suggestions (in another thread, which I will create as we receive enough suggestions).

Pictures are also a great way to support your suggestion. Please only post general skyline pictures, not ones of individual skyscrapers. Also, a few good ones should be sufficient for people to decide, so don't post 100's of pictures.

Let's start.

Warsaw, and Moscow. The situation could change in about 5 years time.

Remember, these are just suggestions, we'll vote a bit later, so you can provide more than one city.

Pictures are also a nice way to support your suggestion. Not too many pictures though, just a few good general pictures, not of individual buildings.

Warsaw for now.

Future city might be Belgrade because our best mayor in history zoned one district as modern skyscraper district. Beogradjanka is somewaht in that area. But then the moeny was gone. Now that territory is occupied by Main Train Station. It is in the process of moving to new location. That new station is almost done and will be finished in year or so.

Let`s not talk about Moscow which has number of residents as whole Serbia.

Nice tiny ssc might be Baltic states.

Budapest really needs some moderns because it is very expanding city.

Zagreb might get toothpick of 370 m and it will make it look funny not modern.

Warsaw, it's obvious. Moscow? It has many highrises spread all around the city but 99% of them are one hell of ugliness, although the situation might improve if the major projects (Federation Tower, TOR and some others) of "Moscow City" will be done.

Please read the rules! This is not about the future. The purpose is to see which city has the best SKYLINE at the PRESENT time.

And factors (like Moscow's population) don't really matter, because it doesn't change the skyline. We're looking for the BEST Modern Skyline, no matter what factors affect it.

right now I believe Warsaw, although I don't know in the future, some cities like Moscow are due to challenge the #1 spot

Can a mod please add "Part 1" to the title. I tried editing it, but it doesn't show up. Thanks.
(I wish I was a mod ... when do the mod elections start )

I appreciate your suggestion, and it will surely be on the poll.
But you also mentioned that some cities might have nice skylines in the future, so I just gave you a friendly reminded.

Thanks for participating.

Bucharest has some goodies one of them even looks like those boxes(which I like BTW) in Warsaw. Not many pictures though and all of them are from its bottom. Also add all baltic capitals and Berlin (Capital of former Easter Germany )

So I say Berlin
