actually Kiev really has no skyline. Several huge commy and ... nothing.

Historical Kiev is more interesting for me personally) I hope Kiev will preserve it.

If Kiev has no skyline, then Moscow has not much of a skyline as well. Moscow looks just like Kiew, a sea of commieblock highrises, with just one cluster sticking out.

I like "Historical Kyiv" too... It is worth remembering that the "Historical Kyiv" was created for 1,000 years. New high-rise buildings were built to last 10 years. Ten years ago in Kyiv there was only one building over 100 m. Today Kyiv boasts of more than 500 buildings 20+ floors of which more than 30 are above 100 meters.
In 2023 in Kyiv will be 60-70 buildings above 100 meters of which 5-7 are above 200 meters.

Yeah. Just one cluster with 5 supertalls and 150 something buildings over 100 meters...

No, seriously, Kiev has no skyline, St.Petersburg doesn't have one either, no need to be bitter about it when someone mentions it when you constantly try to imply that Kiev belongs to "Best European Skyline" thread. It doesn't.

Do you know what is the definition of skyline?

Quote:
A skyline is the overall or partial view of a city's buildings and structures against the sky. It can also be described as the artificial horizon that a city's overall structure creates. Skylines serve as a kind of fingerprint of a city, as no two skylines are alike.
So Kyiv as any other city has skyline. It's different saying that you don't like it and that there is no skyline...

And there are not only commie-blocks, do not lie. There are a lot of new glass highrises. You can see it from the previous pictures.

Everyone who said that Kyiv has no skyline are russians. Isn't it strange?
They are simply jealous. For them only Moscow has skyline and is the best in the Europe...
What can you say... typical trolls...

Who cares if it's super talls! That's a made up categorisation for nerds and just bean counting. A cluster of 15 towers of 200 m does still make a better, more varied skyline than a cluster of just 5 towers, even if they are 400+ m.

Even Benidorm beats Moscow any time:

By the way, I think, Benidorm is seriously underrated in here (Though it's kinda ugly. But so are Moscow's towers...).

Why again would you feel the need, to post (according to your judgement) "not so good" skylines in a "best" skylines thread?

i think we should be allowed to post also 'small' skylines, this thread would be boring with just 5 different skylines.
