Milano is going to look classy in a few years' time. La Ville Lumière is always awesome though.

I don't want to see another post like this. Seriously, I don't have the patience for it.

It will be, but not before it gets its supertall. One skyline can't be the best if it doesn't have a supertall, but I understand it is your opinion and I appreciate it.
By the way is there some kind of supertall project proposed, or maybe approved?

Paris just looks beautiful. I love it.

Milan looks great - really going to be something in a few years. I really am looking forward to seeing Il Dritto and it's neighbors rise.

I personally still think London is the best - but it's an opinion and I appreciate that. Different Cities have different styles. There is no Best or Better - all we have for that is statistics. Statistics only show us whats highest/densest/etc; but that isn't what it's about.

It all comes down to opinion. EVERYBODY is bias to their own City and Home. It's just how it is. But there doesn't have to be such an anti-Germanic, anti-French, anti-Italian, anti-life, anti-AnythingThatIsntYourOwnCity, Anti-UK, attitude. There ISN'T going to be a winner or best. Let's just share and compliment guys.

Frankfurt is one of the best skylines in Europe ( if not the best ) with no supertall.

Frankfurt does look amazing and I've already said before that the schedule of the towers is probably the best in Europe. It does look pretty impressive, but I really want to see a supertall project for one skyline to be the best, it's my personal preferences and what I appreciate about one skyline for being the best, anyway I share your opinion and I do think that almost every city should watch on it like on a great example. Especially its silhouette, like I already said it's what I appreciate the most about his skyline.
My ranking :
1. Lndonon/Moscow (still can't decide which one)
2. Frankfurt.
3. Paris.
