Data charts show that Moscow has the biggest skyline in Europe by a wide margin.

Half of the skyscrapers in Moscow are these socrealistic "Blocks" and they don't really count as skyscrapers.

You may not like them, but that's a different matter entirely. They certainly do count as skyscrapers.

I never said I don't like them, I'm just saying that they're not skyscrapers.

To be fair. Half of them on commie blocks which aren't "IN" the skyline.

London has hundreds of them too but they don't classify as towers. They're just "there" nothing special about them and many people care not to even remembering they exist albeit with them towering over head.

Maybe you're right, but in my country they are considered as "ruin" or "toys to demolish"
We just hate them because of our communist past.

Please, be so kind to point what you mean by commieblocks on skyscraperpage.com diagrams:

According to their database, there are 90 100m+ buildings, built after 1990. As far as I know, there are even more (total 152 topped-out 100m+ by this thread).

Here is a map of 100m+ (not up to date).

And why do you use bold?

Polish trolls are so funny.

La Defense is not much bigger than MIBC (1:1 scale):

Let me show some of the soviet-times buildings from there.

"Commiblocks" with 4-meter floor height, build like offices and still used that way. Situated in the center of the city:

Canary wharf has 3 skyscrapers (200m+) and The City has only 2 skyscrapers (200m+) and the mighty shard is not considered skyscraper, but tallest and first supertall in the eu and its also worlds most expensive building. therefore in total london has 5 skyscrapers (200m+) and 1 supertall (300m+) and 10 skyscrapers (200m+) approved/UC.

canary wharf has 1 skyscraper. 8 & 25 Canada square are 199.5 meters as is written by skyscaperpage.com

if you count for plans then just look how many approved towers Paris has. At least 2 supertall which gonna hit the shard, one almoust supertall(297m Tour Phare) and lot of other projects. And I'd say that some london's ones have only Approved status for much longer time

But honestly, are we trying to compare Moscow and whats the name of that city agaain in Poland? That is just so pathetic if you ask me because for one i am a Brazilian and i cannot even recognise one single city in Poland (Pictures) as do many of Brazilians whereas in Russia a lot of people here can recognise five or more cities just by looking at the pictures.
