It's between Paris and London for me. I liked the pics for Liverpool, though, even if they may not qualify.

My first post!

Are you sure
Timeline of tallest buildings
City of Capitals: Moscow Moscow 2009–present
Naberezhnaya Tower C Moscow 2007–2009
Triumph-Palace Moscow 2005–2007
Commerzbank Tower Frankfurt 1997–2005
Messeturm Frankfurt 1990–1997
Moscow State University Moscow 1953–1990
Kotelnicheskaya Embankment Moscow 1952–1953
Boerentoren Antwerp 1932-1952

I make the most classical choice: Frankfurt, Istanbul, Moscow, London, Paris, Warsaw, in no particular order

Cities with top 10 tallest skyscrapers in EU

Madrid - 4
London - 3
Frankfurt - 2
Paris - 1
And which 3 in London would that be? I suppose you don't include buildings that don't exist currently.

According to Wikipedia:

Cities with top 10 of tallest skyscrapers in EU

Moscow - 5
Frankfurt - 2
Madrid - 2
Istanbul - 1

In context of the top 10 list surprisingly almost correct (except of London and Warsaw)

Well, you don't count Moscow because it is not part of EU

I don't count things like Communication towers, Eiffiel Tower (Cultural type), TV antennae, Churches spires and Chimneys etc. So i thought that tallest one in Warsaw is some kind of like Cultural type that's why i didn't put it in the list and i put The Shard instead because it currently standing at 280m+ which is taller than any other U/C towers in EU. Isn't it fair lol i can change my list if you want.

Frankfurt got 14 scrapers, not 4. the two tallest of Frankfurt are taller
than your 4 ! so how do you think you got 4 of the 6 tallest in europe
that would mean that you have the 4 tallest in Europe except Frankfurt.
what is with Paris, London, Warsaw...?
btw. what is the height of the 4 towers of Madrid ?
What you saw from far away is not the reality.
I didn't say Madrid is the best European skyline, I only wanted to say Madrid has a skyline like few European cities, and you said that Madrid didn't deserve be in this list, absurd.
Why do you talk about Frankfurt? Don't feel attacked, I know the Frankfurt skyline is better than Madrid skyline (for me the second in Europe after the Parisian).
Yes, Madrid has 4 of the six tallest in EU:
1-Commerzbank Tower. Frankfurt. 259m.
2-Messeturm. Frankfurt. 256m.
3-Torre Caja Madrid. Madrid. 250m.
4-Torre de Cristal. Madrid. 249m.
5-Torre Espacio. Madrid. 236m.
6-Torre Sacyr. Madrid. 236m.
You have to add ten +100m buildings (and a lot of proyects), some of them were the tallest in Western Europe.

Actually no city in EU can compete with Moscow (in terms of height and number of supertalls) which is home of Europe's tallest buildings.
I really quite like it

To me, a skyline isn't just skyscrapers, its a mixture of old and new architecture. So I rate London, then Paris as my top 2, because out of all of Europe's cities, they have managed to intertwine the old and new beautifully.

Then for the rest;
3. Rotterdam
4. Moscow
5. Warsaw

I really think that Rotterdam's skyline is under-rated. Its in my top 3 easily, but in some 'best of Europe' threads, it barely scrapes the top 10
