Paris and Frankfurt have best skylines in Europe, long gap between those two and other European cities.

Pretty impressive for a city ten times smaller than London...It's no biggie to have 10 skyscrapers in city of 10 Million...

This is just SO's typical trolling when he is bored.

Not sure if this is entirely true, however the same could be said about Dubai and any other city in the world, yet Dubai does not have the best skyline in the world for most people because its clusters come across quite artificial and anorganic in relation to the direct surroundings. The Moscow City cluster is tall but also very limited by size as it ends quite abruptly next to that bunch of tall towers squeezed together in order to form a 'skyscraper mountain' rather than a real skyline. Hopefully this will soon be going to change.

you need time to build a fantastic skyline and moscow has begun like a rocketer!
I wish a lot of cities could do what moscow has achieved in few time.

For me the future star of Europe will be Paris because it hasn't phare+hermitage yet but the day it will come trust me it will amaze european panorama.

Only paris can do it.

London has the shard wich is isolated from the city and CW its a separate cluster.
In Paris "all in one shot" is possible because you have all in the same place
The axis could produce another great 300m skyscrapper which balance well the dominance of hermitage towers.

No doubt Paris is this one which could be spectacular, well balanced and build on a historical symetric axis! Yes paris for the future could be this winner!

I personally think Moscow in not too far future will be on its own league in Europe with its skyline.
I also got a feeling with the rapid growth of London and its borders finally forcing it to grow more densely you will see London as the financial center of Europe becoming the number one skyline in Western Europe in the next 20 years.

For now imo Frankfurt sits alone on the top.

You must be kidding. La Defense is a bad ass cluster and even on a global scale a fairly unique one. Not the highest or largest but pretty dense and with the Grand Arche just iconic. London does not get even close to that.

But London would come on number four of my list, after Paris, Moscow/Frankfurt.
