When i kept saying Frankfurt has best skyline this thread was so peaceful and no fight was detected.

But, when someone pops up and puts Frankfurt behind other cities DAMN a group of you people come up and start a flame war lolz this is not right.

Guys, please don't take the ranking seriously and remember any list is based on personal taste and of course a bit of biased opinion as well.

So, just don't turn this skyline thread into a "Bashing and hating" each other thread for god's sake, just ignore the posts if they are not your taste.

Thanks guys !!!!

I see some Moscow bias going on here. Yeah, the towers are high and modern...but if Frankfurt's/Paris's/London's/Warsaw's skyline would only consist of 5 or 6 towers, most wouldn't even consider it to be a real skyline...

But then the Moscow promoters definitely showcase the most stunning pics in here.

I saw a report about Moscow, about the huge gap between so many poor people and so few billionaires.

It was said that the skyline is mainly sponsored by 3 oil billionaires (Abramoshit is one of them them) and can be regarded as the newest try from Russia to show power and superiority.

To be fair. Could this report not be about any city or nation in the world with nearly same result?

Like i said, it was said in a report. Moscow is just the parade example for it. Moscow got the most millionaires/billionaires in the world.

This will probably never come to an end...

2008-2010: Paris vs Frankfurt
1st half 2011: London vs Frankfurt
2nd half 2011: Moscow vs Frankfurt


Somehow I've got the impression that people most often have a personal opinion/preference of the skyline looking the best which is perfectly resembled by their own hometown..

With an overcast sky Frankfurt's scrapers really look kinda grey and dated.

I am genuinely shocked to see reality/true words come out from you

( I think the effort and potential ( in terms of skyscrapers ) of Moscow is taking over Western Europe's major cities )

I am glad for them for the fact that Eastern Europe's cities have been dramatically changing and this transformation is what they really need.

I have already seen that perspective though. But the lights look very nice on this one!
