Moscow as the capital city of the huge empire, the only remaining empire in europe , certainly will be the most impressive, beautiful city of Europe, and ofcourse the Moscows skyline soon will be unbeatable!

You'd rather take a look at the following poll...

HERE

What can I add apart from: "it says it all..." Frankfurt & Paris definitely are in another league. It may be difficult to accept (especially for a brit), but it's just the way it is. The gap will be even deeper with the amazing skyscraperc U/C (Majunga/D2), the stunning LOUIS VUITTON Foundation & the forthcoming AIR2/ALTO/PHARE/HERMITAGE PLAZA...I'm so proud of my beloved Défense...<3
ALSO, if that poll is evidence, then it shows that Warsaw has the best skyline in Europe.... Which me and you both know is not true. Not hating on Warsaw, its awesome, but it isn't Europe's best.

Jeez. The trolls keep coming.

Only remaining Empire?? That wouldn't have even been the case back in 1917.

To be honest the density/angle issue applies to London as well.

Nontheless i think London's skyline is actually the best (for me) right now in Europe, and if they keep up the good work they can even compete skyline-wise with iconic North American cities, but of course there is still a long road to go.

Frankfurt and Paris in another league?? eh?

Why would being a Brit make it harder to accept?

Jex, i normally enjoy reading your posts but you are deluded and massively overconfident here.

This is the typical attitude that us Brits find difficult to understand, where does this overconfidence come from, i mean you have lost out at pretty much every occasion over the years, where does this pride come from, it is a little embarrassing when you think of your recent history!

I know, but people mistakenly believe that it attracts more people than all those arenas in Canada and the US when it doesn't. Regarding NBA/NHL, I can see regular season games being played there, but not actual teams based in London. Besides, I was under the impression that Canadian sports weren't popular in the UK. Don't you prefer netball?

Well considering I work in global finance i would kinda know....

London and New York are the financial centres of the world. Just google it, its not a secret.

So YES there is MUCH more demand in London.

The fact that some of you lot are arguing like 6 year olds about which skyline is the best is actually pathetic. I'm 17 and I am sure that most if not all of you are older than me. Don't insult someone just because you don't agree with their opinion. Explain why you think your favorite skyline is the best instead of bringing people down. And as for people hating on London and Brits in general, take a good look at yourselves before making up silly, stereotypical remarks.

I'm done

I also agree with this...

Paris is a stunning city and one of the marvels of the world, but in Skyline terms it does not compare to London, Frankfurt or Moscow. I have no idea why you would not see that??? O_o

Paris has way better skyline than London, London can't compete with Paris yet.

Hahahaha dont make me laugh! Economically the UK is much stronger than France. It always has been. My family had to live on rations so that the British and American governments could give money to France to get back on its knees after the war.

France and Paris is BEAUTIFUL. And i generally love the French people. But London and the UK is economically much stronger than Franc

Thank goodness we do not use Euro.

Anyways... back to the subject. London is the best European Skyline, followed by Moscow and Frankfurt. :-D

Only in your dreams, it can be the most booming city in the world (it is not) but its not the same league in terms of skyline as Paris and Frankurt.
Unfortunately London is also not as attractive as Paris, well actually its pretty ugly compared to other European capitals.
