I think the made a far way in the supertall-cup. If I renember right, they were beaten by ESB, but it was really close.

Most midscale and <1.mio inhabitants Skylines like Leeds, Tallin, Essen, Duesseldorf and Vilnius (maybe Lyon, too) are all quite on a same level, in my oppnion. Making a Ranking here is really though.

A "problem" with Vilnius is that it also has some scattered small towers, so it is difficult to get a photo of all the high buildings in "one place". Will see what we'll get in the future. The good think is that high buildings are allowed only in one place and there are 29, 31, 20, 17, 22, 28, 26, 26, 16, 16 storey towers designed there just waiting to be built. These highrises are not big, but for Vilnius scale little city it is the best. And another two clusters will rise in the Western part of the city (6 x 23 + 21 storey near existing 23+23+20) and in the so called Business Triange (3 x 20 near existing 19+14+14) before 2025

These all will improve the view significantly and will add what it lacks now.
But even now one can feel some small big city feeling near these tiny "skyscrapers".

However, Vilnius is the only one out of these cities with even the metropolitan area smaller than 1 million (with the only other exception being Benidorm).

Seeing pictures of Milan, I often think, it's a pic of Dubai, with Burj Khalifa hiding behind a highrise.
