The skyline of those supertall skyscrapers in Moscow looks great at the close range, but it looks kinda lonely in a sea of low rises from the distance.

I like it its massiveness, thanks to this great architecture of these buildings can be seen even from long distance. Moscow too monotonous high-rise buildings, I hope MIBC same massive from this angle, this is it unique
I hope the cluster will grow on the sides and back of the higher will be the dominant (450-700m)

Thank you all for keeping this thread alive and interesting
You may be right about the location, but Yekaterinburg doesn't have cluster of modern skyscrapers or high-rises so it doesn't belong to this thread either.

Well, that is not up to me to say whether Yekaterinburg have a cluster of modern skyscrapers or not. I merely stated that Yekaterinburg do belong in this thread due to its location. Personally I don't think it has one of the best skylines in Europe, but maybe someone other has another opinion and he or she has the right to mention that in this forum

Here is my own list:

First tier
1. Paris
2. Moscow
3. London
4. Frankfurt

Second tier
5. Istanbul
6. Warsaw
7. Rotterdam
8. Milan
9. Vienna
10. Madrid

Third tier
11. The Hague
12. Benidorm (yes ugly, but impressive)
13. Barcelona
14. Kiev
15. Brussels
16. Amsterdam
17. Baku

You got it wrong Yekatrinberg Bashny East is 209m high taller than any skyscraper in warsaw and handful of buildings over 100m its definitely has more right to belong to this thread more than flat Vilinus, and I do find Novosibirsk way much taller as a city say than Vilinus or manchester and many other european cities

but isnt the same case with L.A and few US cities where the financial district has got all the skyscrapers while the rest of the city is flat?

For Yekaterinburg can be argued that part of Europe. It is located at the foot of the Ural Mountains.

Let's just allow Yekaterinburg because it is on the border of the European continent. I think that as long nobody claims Vladivostok is European, we don't have any problems here . Please stop this discussion and don't ruin this interesting thread .

Agreed and lets adopt Yekaterinburg as an European city.

I personally don't know any existing building in Yekaterinburg that is over 200 m tall... Maybe you made some spelling mistakes or you're talking about some proposed projects? Anyway we've got taller buildings in Warsaw so what are you talking about mate?

In my opinion we should allow posting Yekaterinburg photos in this thread but this should be really the last city in Europe. Also in my opinion: I don't find anything interesting in its skyline.
