I am tempted to say Warsaw is outranking London when it comes to skylines. Those are wonderful views!!!

Warsaw's one cluster of skyscrapers is better than each of London's clusters individually. Only London as a whole/in wide-angle is of course more impressive.

It's like saying the whole skyline of Sao Paulo looks better than the main cluster of Singapore.

Well it's not exactly the best skyline , but here's Bratislava, if anyone's interested :

And this is my favorite photo that nicely combines new (highrises) with the old (castle):

The city skyline should get more interesting as the New City Center and Panorama City projects get completed and form a cluster near the Apollo Bridge (the one with the arch design on the first photo).

There are also other highrises in Bratislava (not visible on the photos), but they are randomly scattered all over the city...

From this angle and taken with a zoom lens it looks like one dense cluster. On picture 2 you can see it ain't dense as it looks on picture 1.

On picture 1 above Warsaw looks very impressive, but in real I find Canary Wharf the better cluster.

^ That picture of Canary Wharf was taken nearly 3 years ago. More new highrises have been added since then.

Why is it Manchester and Leeds and not Birmingham and Liverpool?

The poll speaks for itself!

Warsaw has really impressed me in this thread!

And the last weeks there is more information mentioned in official documents about a 222m-high tower right in the city centre, next to the Central Station and close to the Liebeskind tower



On this (older) photo it will be positioned just in the middle behind the complex and on the same line as that lower blue tower behind the station .

And they are also preparing the 159m Q22 tower.

And the 180m (220m with antenna) high Warsaw Spire is going above ground level

I like The Hague for some reason, unlike other cities the city follows a homogeneous and continuous concept with their highrises.
