In the day-time without its lights, Waraw's skyline really isn't as good as people might think. 7.0/10 But in the night I'd give it an 8.0/10... overall: 7.5/10

Well that first picture kicks ass! From ground level I have never noticed this really cool view before, although I have been in Warsaw a couple of times! Excellent so this is gonna be a 9!

Another point I would like to mention is that all the "old" buildings are newly build after being destroyed by the Germans and Russians in WW2. I think they (the polish with rebuilding) did an excellent job!

Warsaw has a nice skyline for a city not known to have one.

8/10

Now I'm proud to be born in this city! ;-)

But Warsaw has many urban problems, the city doesn't care enough for uran planning and many good skyscrapers are being built outside the strict city centre. If that was not so, this city would have had an even better skyline...

Well yeah some of the skyscrapers are build a distance from the city center but i think that with time they will all clense together to make one big downtown.

reminds me of london minus canary wharf to be honest, but i love the palace of culture there - one of my fave skyscrapers. very european, lots of spires and rather spread out too. i give it 7 - 5/5 for character and history, and 2/5 for density and height.
