Moscow reminds me of the first time I saw a supertall. I think only Moscow, Frankfurt, London, Madrid and now Paris are the only European cities that have buildings that can give me that vertigo feeling from the ground. Something you can't describe in pictures and it is why I love skyscrapers.

Moscow would have had a nice cluster of 11 buildings
but it's been reduced to nine, ever since City Duma and
Russia Tower were kicked out.

Looks like instead of Russia tower (520000 sq meters) there will be another project for 250000 m2. Same goes for City Duma.

Great news! But it seems like the original Russia Tower project got scrapped and they will be building something much smaller

Moscow skyline (I mean Moscow City) "needs" several 180-250 metres tall skyscrapers more, not one 600 metres tall.

My absolute top is London. In terms of Central London, I find both the modern skyscrapers and historic buildings well blended in the scenery (it looks stunning e.g. on photos taken from the Golden Gallery at St Paul's Cathedral). Very vibrant and cosmopolitan look altogether.

The other interesting and/or impressive ones would be Moscow, Warsaw, Naples and Liverpool. Also, have to say there's something I like about Benidorm.

In particular, I'm really glad that Warsaw is catching up fast with good style. I've done a small compilation of a few pics, consisting of the aerial shot (the National Stadium under construction is captured as well) and the city skyline. Enjoy.

A couple of things
1: Paris is overrated and I don't like la Defense
2: Madrid has a couple of high buildings but it's just not a complete skyline
3:Frankfurt has quiet a nice skyline but i'm getting bored of all the pictures of the commerzbank
4: Warsaw is upcoming but it's certainly not top5 and ofzourse not before Rotterdam or Moskow

My top 10

1 London (has a beautiful complete skyline)
2 Moskow (great buildings)
3 Frankfurt
4 Rotterdam (fantastic skyline the most beautiful pictures come from here and benidorm)
5 Benidorm
6 Istanbul
7 The hague (this is booming 2011 will be the year for theme)
8 Warsaw
9 Madrid
10 Paris

Pardon my question sir, but are you high? Overrated Paris? Getting bored with Commerzbank pictures? London with beautiful and complete skyline? I will agree on Madrid and Warsaw but the rest is just a mockery.
