I really love Moscow's skyline! It's very well planned, doesn't lack density, height or a focal point. Altough I am a huge London fan, I admit that Moscow is just no1 now.

London (the city) lacks density atm, that's quite understandable taking into account the strict building laws and the St.Pauls sight lines around this area. What it also needs, are some very very simple scrapers (eg. 100 bishopsgate) and not anymore wacky shapes which btw make scrapers look shorter than the actually are.

Paris lacks a focal point, something to focus when you see La defense from a distance because it looks like a wall. Easy to fix that.

Frankfurt needs some density too, but overall is very good.

What I also like about Moscow's skyline is that buildings are slim, don't seem out of place and they are next to each other.

My honest opinion.

Paris La Defense's really beautiful. There are not many skyscrapers in Europe. Skylines of Europe aren't impressive from afar . However they're clean, fine, tidy when coming close.

I think, Paris La Defense has the best skyline in Europe. It's really very fine.

The pics you've chosen prove that Moscow is the third.
One can see 8 skyscrapers. But now Moscow has 13 skyscrapers on the pics you've shown. So now Moscow is the first
feel the difference. This angle now.
