For me cities like milan,madrid , kyiv are just new comers. let's take the time to see their promising developments.
For the moment they are the league 2 of european skylines when the battle for the title concerns ONLY the "big four" London,Paris,Moscow,frankfurt by far

Those pics are terrific. Its like a wall of towers.

Canary Wharf has just had it's tallest tower proposed for it. With this and Wood Wharf plus many other 80-140m towers it's really going to start looking like a ini-manhattan

3- Paris
4- London
5- Rotterdam

If i had to predict 15 years forward my list might look like this:

1- Moscow
2- London
3- Paris
4- Frankfurt
5- Rotterdam/or replaced by other city

Ok I've decided to make my own list. These are just my own thoughts. You know everyone has his own vision of perfection. I have been in every city on my list, personally.

1. Frankfurt- Good quality of skyscrapers. It looks really great from far away. And pleasantly when you're going across the downtown.

2. London- Really high skyline. Good quality but the skyscrapers are too far away from each other. And you don't really see the skyline when you're going across the streets.

3. Paris- Good quality, great skyscrapers on their own. When you're going across the streets it seems really big and high, which is really great. But, for me, it looks too boxy from far away. It looks like a big cube when you are on the edges of the city.

4. Rotterdam- I know it's is not high and not that big like Warsaw, but it looks better right now. The skyscrapers fits together perfectly, and they all have good quality. I think it would be number 1 or 2 in the future.

5. Warsaw- It looks great and modern from the streets and really good from far away. But the commie-blocks destroy the whole Downtown. I hope Warsaw is going to change that. And they will be destroyed or renovated with a high quality. It has a big potential to be number 1 in the future, but the way is very long.

6. Moscow- It fits together really well. But it looks Asian and a little kitschy for me. I don't like any skyscraper there. It's an average quality, too much of shiny glass and that gold skyscraper is just ugly for me.

7. Milan- It has a potential, but doesn't look great right now, just good.

8. The Hague- I love that one, but it is too short.
9. Vienna
10. Madrid

Entirely off topic post...

Furthermore, the beauty of a skyscraper does not depend on its height but on its design/impact on the skyline.

Why?
"Discuss:..." and the height is an important criteria for this discussion.
