not true. Moscow is bigger, also without considering the metro population.

Guys to be honest your arguments and the whole argue about cities is more or less like this:
-My ***** is bigger!
-No my is bigger!
-Ok, maybe but my is thicker!
-But still my is better.
like little boys just different toys.

Moderator PLEASE DELETE those posts [mine too]~! The discussion is about SKYLINE not the population of cities or area or whatever!
Ps. forgive me the example but i could not resist it

This is getting silly

London is much bigger than Paris .. it's ridiculous to state otherwise..

London is also bigger than Moscow.. the Moscow city stats involve an area the size of Poland

London is the biggest city in the whole of Europe. London's metro is around 18/19 million .

Skylines can be historic as well. Why don't you guys consider the historic skylines of Prague, Istanbul, Cambridge, Budapest, Seville etc ?

This thread is great as is and I appreciate all of you showing your favorite cities but I am sure we could contribute without harassing each other.

I personally don't like the buildings in Moscow or Paris. They are rapidly manufactured as parts of the business district master plan. There is an unexplainable lack of "life". They remind me of soulless Chinese cities, honestly. I believe cities are alive, especially in our homeland, Europe. I believe the best cosmopolitan city in Europe is London. Paris is out of the equation for me because the entire city is built by the same guy and the lack of variety, unfortunately, killed the city. I would prefer the lovely medieval Paris over the current one any day. This is why cities like London, Istanbul, Frankfurt etc are full of life and show a healthy evolution. They carry their history in them but still adopt to the 21st century.

Yes. I will go with London, then Istanbul. I miss London!!

GREAT NEWS FOR LONDON.

Pinnacle tower to keep ‘helter skelter’ design after review

London desperately needed this to keep in touch with Moscow.

Even with Pinnacle, London still has a ways to go before it catches Moscow skyline wise.

London never will catch up Moscow.
Moscow eventually grows twice as fast as London and triple faster than other European giants skylines.

You may probably refer to Georges Eugène Haussmann who created the "grands boulevards" like the Champs-Elysées or the Avenue de l'Opéra, but he was no architect, he built nothing, just ordered and proposed a kind of modern building. Have you ever put a step in Paris ? If yes, I really wonder how you can say it lacks of soul and diversity, and how you dare comparing Paris to a Chinese city...If you refer to the color of the roofs, well ok, it's kinda uniform with this blue/grey (dont mix up "uniformity" and "harmony"), but I never noticed than the great Hôtels Particuliers from the 15th century like the Hotel de Soubise or de Sens and Art-Nouveau buildings or the Place des Vosges were look-alike.
