Paris is very well organized and it is very dense. However, it is a dwarf skyline. Though, I am sure they will build taller ones as the city demands. For now, it lacks height which is a major aspect of a good skyline in my opinion.

He wasn't talking about the tallest, biggest, widest or whatever. He was talking about his personal preferences when it comes to skylines. And obviously, the skyline is something which has to do with how tall the buildings are, whether you like it or not. Of course, it's not the taller the better, it doesn't go like that, but buildings need to be above a height for a skyline to look good, and that's why we don't compare every European city here and we only compare the ones that have tall buildings. That's what skyline is about, height. Do not take it personally when somebody says something about Paris, he's not the only one that says that Paris lacks a tall building that stands out because the skyline currently looks a bit like a wall. It'd be really exciting to see Paris getting a supertall, and it probably will sometime soon, but meanwhile let's not pretend that it's perfect. chill out

Parisian skyline is not bad but nowhere near the best. I am sorry to burst your bubble but there is Moscow, Istanbul and London. You need/have to be above 6ft if you want to be a male model so that you look good on stage and the clothes can show themselves on you. It doesn't mean shorter guys are ugly or the tallest guy on earth is the best model. It is just a fact that a decent height is very important in order to be a model. You can't become a David Gundy if you are very handsome but 5'7" tall.

You only make people dislike Paris with your repulsive attitude. It is not a good way to promote what you love. I don't mean to hurt your feelings though.

This, however, belongs to when we speak of the best skyline. Not only the appearance, all factors play an important role.

Paris doesn't have the best skyline. Paris is just....Paris.

I think that there is no need of posting historical skylines over here, no one said that Paris is some ugly ghetto, we all know that Paris is one of the best cities not just in Europe, but in the whole world, very charismatic, very romantic, with lots of world famous landmarks, but when we turn back to the issue: Which is the best European skyline? many of us would agree that you have lots of interesting high rises, but for a skyline to be the best it needs to have supertalls somewhere in it, for now it really is a beautiful skyline, but not before Moscow or London, because like I said we are talking about the best European skyline over here. What if Paris doesn't have the best skyline, who cares its still going to be one of the best cities around the world, there is no reason for you to get offended if some of us prefer Moscow or London as better, there is someone that thinks that Paris is the best and it will always stay the best for him, it's going to be his opinion, his statement, not a real fact. Just like when I say that Moscow is the best and it will probably stay best forever, but just for me, just for my personal tastes. When you're stating you're opinion you don't need to apologize about it, but you can't talk about you're opinion as it's a matter of fact.

To be the best you always have to fit with the required features, I really don't know why when someone says something about one city everyone are taking it bloody personal, it's not meant to hurt your feelings like some of the users already said on the previous page, we are discussing not offending each other. I was loving Paris so much before, when I came over here and saw how ignorant some peoples really are, I can see that there is no way to discuss with them. I mean what kind of discussion post is the next one:

Isn't there any better way of defending your opinion, at least he could have told us why does he think Paris is above the rest skylines, I am always ready for a nice discussion so I already told you what does one skyline need to have to be the best for me: Many towers with lovely designs, good schedule of the towers, how they gonna look when they are up, and for being the best it needs to have some towers that are going to be taller than the rest of the skyline, otherwise I can also put a picture of the city where I live and say this is the best skyline in Europe, but wait when I think about it, it's not the best just in Europe, probably it's the best skyline in the whole world, I mean come on even NYC can't beat it.
But that's not how does one discussion need to look, you need to say why do you think it's the best. And careful when you are reading my post I am not saying that we need to build a skyline full of megatalls to be the best, but we need to think about building something worth to be called the best. I have already told you millions of times what is worth for me to be called the best, and if you are not as ignorant as the person above, you can tell me which are the preferences that you respect when you are looking at this issue. If I see that your statement is correct, I am always here to say that you are the one that's right when we are discussing about the best skyline in Europe. Using just one ''nope'' it's not enough to convince me.
