No offense, but its only your opinion. Moscow has around 20 buildings above 150m NOT in the main cluster. While Johannesburg has 3 in total. More specifically, it has like 19 buildings with 25 floors or more. In Moscow 25 is a typical floor count for residential building.

Warsaw has a couple buildings which are taller than the most buildings in Rotterdam, but Rotterdam's Skyline is larger than Warsaw.
I'm not saying Rotterdam is better or more impressive.

That SO143 is a mess. Well, at least he's entertaining.

As for the skylines, I really like Frankfurt, London, Warsaw and Paris, but Frankurt is my favourite one.

With Africa, let's take it easy on.
So what? Just in NYC there is 35 buildings higher than it, so that number is very small for an entire continent. Again I am NOT talking about height, but rather a skyline, none in Europe are very impressive right now, admit it.

I will let you get back on topic though

BTW, I have seen all these skylines I am talking about in person(besides Moscow) with my own eyes, so I think I can judge the skylines

Sure you are right with what you say that the greater Rotterdam skyline has. I was not sure at first. Warsaw but simply has more projects under construction and approved / planned. And the list is still room for improvement.

Throughout Africa there have been only two skyscraper in the 200 meter mark.
Namely, the Carlton Centre and Hassan 2 Mosque .

Almost all skyscrapers in the EU were built after Johannesburg, so just like we still place NYC next to Dubai, despite Dubai NOW being taller, we can do the same.

Also for the 3rd time, I am talking about a skyline not f*cking height! Geez its like we are comparing d*cks here!

BTW, I was actually born in Germany and lived there, and its of course my NO.1 country, but I am saying my piece.

Johannesburg may not have many buildings of height, but it has a more mature and natural skyline than those in Europe, maybe if you opened your eyes you would be able to appreciate that.

Does a skyline simply consist of height or does the blend of it all not come into play? If its only height, well the Dubai has the best skyline in the world.....

Lol.
Dude you can have your opinion of course but it is completely off topic and irrelevant to this thread. So would you be so kind and just drop this? There also is an African Skylines thread in this section that I would wish to become more active, btw.

Seen from the point of you of course right. Sure looks Johannesburg American than our citys but this does not equal better. it always depends on the approach approximate. Our cities are historically grown and not built according to plan in the checkerboard pattern, like NY. Outside these clusters are defined skyscrapers / highrises usually not desirable because it would destroy the old cityscape. Johannesburg is certainly the most beautiful skyline in Africa but with Europe you can not compare it, neither in look, mass or hight.

Damn reading the last 3 pages its all so cringeworthy and embarrassing. Here's to hoping the thread gets back on track and make this thread be the showcase of the amazing skylines we have here in Europe. These skylines I believe are some of the best in the world. They are much more unique, historical, classier, and generally more diverse and interesting then other parts of the world. We should be proud and celebrate our skylines rather then having a go at eachother, which is rather childish.

yes the europe skylines are the best skylines... yes a bit chaotic situated but it adds some sharm to it and relaxing view ... Hong Kong and NYC are look like brick/stone/glass jungles where I feel uncomfortable ... and you can't escape it there .
