I was just about going to say that.
I was going to say With each skyscraper Warsaw builds, it improves their skyline by a whole lot.

This tower will be iconic one.
So they can easily destroy the Soviet Icon now

I would not say that, but with zlota completed, the skyline will definitve catch up to (west) Europes Top2 and make it to a 3Group.

it is too an example, that you don't need an overdose of outstanding-freaky designs to form a good skyline. It will be a skyline wich works great with only two eyecachers from distance.

For me the best is still London for many reasons. The skyscrapers in London are amazing in architecture and in quality. It's dense and there are 2 clusters that are beautiful. It's without doubts the most iconic skyline in Europe. It has the only supertall in Europe that adds something impressive in the skyline. A lot of projects that are U/C or coming will make it more impressive than now and I think London will stay the best for a while.

That's my opinion, honorable mentions to Frankfurt, Paris and Moscow.

Since you are a pole and live in Warsaw, you feel the soul of Warsaw, but not the one of Frankfurt.

I was in Frankfurt and in my opinion Franfurt has got the biggest skyline in Europe but is soulless.

Moscow is impressive and big city but Moscow skyline is also soulless

Invite to Warsaw- same rate

I don't get in how far Warsaw does have a soul. And why do all the other cities lack a soul? Sounds like Bulls...
