Folk are turned on aesthetically by different things in cities and in architecture ..

And you obviously get a meeting of all worlds on this site.




But yes a good reply to the original question.

I'm one of the few who is posting Rotterdam pics so now and than and as I'm a bit (re)tired from doing it, there are not many photos of Rotterdam to find the last 20-30 pages of this thread.

Amazing pics of Warsaw. This city is in neverending growth (a real phoenix from ashes). With 7 skyscrapers currently in construction Warsaw will only strengthen its place in TOP European Skylines.

Warsaw starts to look good. I guess it would fit into top UE top 5.
London is a league in itslef. Canary Whartf and the City are truly IMHO really good.

Obviously not in terms of height or number of skyscrapers, but these don't automatically make for a globally known and recognized skyline.

I would argue Frankfurt is there in Top 10 most known/iconic skylines. It could change in the future as other cities build up and get more recognized but like I said, numbers alone ain't sufficient. Shenzen has far more and way higher skyscraper than Frankfurt but it's far less widely recognizeable and iconic around the globe. Sydney has larger skyline but without the low-rise Opera in the picture most people couldn't even name it.

You could make a case for Paris (La Defense) too, primarly thanks to Grande Arche being the centerpiece of the whole scheme, it makes up for a unique and striking skyline vista around the world.

I lived in London for many years and just moved to Dubai.

Would you consider Dubai skyline being amongst top ten in the World?

If yes, I have to tell, aesthetically and by sheer urban feel, London is few leagues higher than Dubai, which to date still feels like few high rises in the desert. So, yes, any most top European skylines would be in top 10 in the World.

Dubai is a strange one as it is a new place where they've just dumped a load of incredibly tall buildings. For sheer density and urban sprawl it cannot compete with london
