mate do you understand the difference between skyscraper and skyline? what i said was the best skyscraper contest. anyhow i personally think moscow has the best skyline in europe, the amount of construction projects in cities like london, moscow and istanbul etc are just unstoppable. this or that is the best one answer will be different based on who you ask. but the fact is the london is the most booming city in the entire world when it comes to total amount of investment and money for new buildings, projects and constructions. on the other hand la defense skyline is great, it is massive and made up of many highrises and one skyscraper. overall it looks nice in the pictures but if you really stand in the middle of that cluster you don't get the "awe" feeling and i think it is because of the height of buildings. i haven't been to frankfurt so i can't comment on this city, but without a doubt it is still top dog, nevertheless we don't see great potential in this city like we see in moscow or london or other booming cities.

london vs frankfurt cup

the winner - the gherkin, london

Paris and Francfort are truly the best
Moscow will be interesting to follow the next few years, as Istanbul.

4 cities at the top of Europe

bbc just recently reported that many chinese firms and finance companies are eyeing to purchase the royal docks in order to establish a new financial district there and many more new towers will be built there too. in addition to that, the cw group has announced that the size of canary wharf skyline will be doubled by later 2020 which is a fantastic news. at the moment cw is pretty stable in terms of construction, only 25 churchill place is rising in that 2nd financial district of london. the american banking company gp morgan also should make up their mind to erect 2 massive skyscrapers at the heart of the canary wharf. hopefully, the crisis in eurozone countries will get better and more money will be poured into the city.

May be it's because all these ratings are subjective as, for example, some people are always excluding London, even though it keeps delivering high class skyscrapers year after year and really going through the boom years.
I tend to ignore all personal "top 10" as either you like it or not or may be have some other reasons to "hate" another city not to include it into the rating.

Well I did inform Axelferris about the two towers he believes will push Paris to the top in a private message but it seems to have fallen on deaf ears. Probably shouldn't have bothered.

What people don't tend to realise with London is the actual scale of it. St Pauls, London Eye etc are all well over 100m tall but look tiny but having them on the skyline completely out performs any normal average 200m+ tower IMO.
