"you said it already"

Russia is a European country, so those two cities are European. The cities in the eastern parts of Russia can't help, that Russia is so huge and stretches so far east...they are still European cities in a European country.

No, you're wrong, Novosibirsk isn't European city. Here is the map that shows Novosibirsk's location



And here is the map of Europe



You see that NVSK is far from europe's border(The Urals). So it isn't in Europe...

No, you are wrong. Those borders (the Urals) are artificial boundaries made hundred years ago, but Russia is a european country with european cities.

stop it!

There are conventions, Europe ends at Urals. Get over it.
Russia is a Trans-continental country, as Egypt or Turkey.

It is general knowledge, that Europe's and Asia's border are the Ural mountains.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europe
Yes, it is an artificial/cultural border, but if we talk about "Europe" and not "Eurasia" it is it's own continent...and that for centuries already.

Change the thread title to something that stupid, just to cram in every random city you like?
Cool, I want Shanghai and Hongkong in, why don't we change it to "Best Eurasian Skyline" immediately?
It's about Europe (how it is defined for centuries) and if some of your cities aren't situated in Europe, then that's bad luck for you. Get over it. I'm sure you find a thread elsewhere to post Yekaterinburg and Novosibirsk pictures.

Amazing find Axelferis...

I wish we had more photos taken from these off the beaten track angles, La Defense' skyline shows how amazing it is in this pic. Even though they are stunning, there are way too many views taken from the main axis...La Défense has so many different faces...

I really hope we'll be having great news this year regarding our main projects...fingers crossed.

Proposed skyscrapers for Warsaw the coming years . Zlota 44 and Hines Tower are almost ready. There is more news about the other ones coming some time, and also a few projects not on this pic have started

Blue ones: Built.
Yellow: Proposed or being build.
(The picture doesn't show the architecture of the new buildings, only their height. It won't be all blocks )

You can learn how to read carefully, please
I offer spread only LARGE Skyline only to those countries which are in EUROPE (partly or fully)
The current list of CE most suitable i think

Yes! Like the Orco Orbis, HPO Tower and the new 230 m. Torca Tower

I'll be nice and give you Novosibirsk as it is technically in Eurasia, but Yekaterinburg belongs to this thread due to it's unique location on the geographical borderline of Europe and Asia

Thank you all for keeping this thread alive and interesting

Frankfurt

I love how these new developments along the water front complement the existing skyline. It's good to see Frankfurt expanding its skyline closer to the Main river. These new high-rises are certainly not super tall or architecturally as interesting as the ones in Moscow, Madrid, or Warsaw, yet somehow I love the simplicity and how nicely they integrate with the existing surroundings. The two smaller towers facing the bridge appear to form a little entrance gate to the business district beyond.
