My Top-10

1 Paris (some views are gorgeous - which include Eifel tower and La Defense)
2 Frankfurt (only 1 good angle, but it is stunning)
3 Moscow (#1 by count and height, but very scattered. I love MIBC and Stalin skyscrapers)
4 London (same problem as Moscow; Canary Wharf is excellent)
5 Warsaw (fantastic photos on previous page!)
6 Constantinople
7 Milan
8 Rotterdam
9 Benidorm (density, Spanish Hong-kong)
10 Ekaterinburg (will be in top-7 after end of construction of CBD and other skyscrapers u/c)

WOW, The Eiffel Tower never fails to amaze me! Surely one of the most beautiful structures in the world, gives the Parisian skyline that extra kick.

I definately wouldn't call the skyline short or little. I personally don't think Paris needs extremely tall towers. It all fits in very nicely at the moment.

the skylines of Paris and London are just impossible to compare for many reasons..both look visually stunning from many angles .. it's just a case of oranges or apples...

The guy who was trolling jo'burg on here ...just embarrassing.

European cities have a rich and massively varied array of architecture with skylines increasingly sexy, sleek and modern...Jo'burg has nothing to offer other than a skyline frozen in time.

So much bias for London here. Moscow, Paris and Frankfurt look better right now

So unique, so elegant, so Paris

Well, how about The Hague mate? I think it would fit in your 'Group C' the best

However, 'boom', 'constantly' or 'barely growing', such phases can change from one year to another..
