I don't see Liverpool, Vienna or Brussels before Milan and Madrid but for the rest it should be pretty much similar to my list.

Milan will gain some positions on my list, when most of the projects are completed. But a "skeleton"-UC Skyline is not high in my list and still behind Liverpool, too.

I took your comment under consideration and do think Madrid deserved to be in there, but not Milan. I've down graded Liverpool and upgraded Madrid. Here's my revised list:

01. Moscow
02. Frankfurt
03. London
04. Paris
05. Rotterdam

06. Warsaw
07. Istanbul
08. Brussels
09. Madrid
10. Vienna


11. Milan
12. Liverpool

That's better
I must admit I was never in Liverpool nor in Moscow but I have been in all the other cities of this list in the last 2 years.
I am pretty confident Frankfurt is still on top, (but maybe Moscow could be there too, I can only judge from the pictures). I have been to Brussels and there is hardly a skyline except for some buildings close to the main station. Vienna has a decentralized cluster but I do not think it should be in the top 10 European skylines. Madrid has 4 great towers but very decentralized. Milan is still a work in progress but it will eventually have 3 to 4 major clusters 2 of which centrally located. IMHO I would say at this time:

01. Frankfurt Moscow

03. London Paris

05. Rotterdam

06. Warsaw Istanbul

08. Madrid Milan
10. Liverpool - I am still not too convinced by the skyline pix I found on line - but if anyone could post some good ones I might change my mind

11 -Brussels - Vienna (If at all to be considered skyline cities)

I quite like what Brussels and Vienna has built. It's not that tall, but they have attractive, modern clusters.
