Yes, it was decided that Istanbul is a European city, but that doesn't mean the whole of Turkey is. I'm a contributor to this thread and the one before for years.

Apart from that, do Ankara and Izmir really qualify for one of the "best European skylines"? That's the name of this thread. Not, "any skyline in Eurasia". There are thousands of nice skylines all over Europe, but we mostly talk about Frankfurt, Paris, London, Moscow, Warsaw, Rotterdam, Istanbul, Vienna, Milan, Madrid and maybe Benidorm in here. Even a city like Berlin (we had a persistent troll from Berlin in here) was not really considered a worthy contender in this thread. So please don't spam us with any Turkish city.
Gentlemen, I think Tiaren has a point. Plus Not every skyline in the world belongs on a best skyline thread. Then, we defeat the purpose.

Just my two cents..
Sometimes, I just don't try to fight it. What is "Best" can be so subjective sometimes who can really say how ridiculous or unrealistic somebody's choices are. I do think though that the Vancouver skyline is often given more credit because of its spectacular setting.

Agreed! I was surprised when I saw how many on-going projects they have, I never expected to see Milan in threads like this. I'm very glad about his development, that city surely has it's vibes, that's why I like it so much. And not to forgot Warsaw, amazing development. I would also like to see Madrid joining the party.

I titled my posts with some tower's names, but come on these are mainly skyline pictures.
If you remove all the pics representing only one tower, you can straightaway close this thread.
