^ Great pictures of La Defense. Good quality pictures. Great Skyline!

Althought there were a hell of a lot of Dutch pictures - they all looked very impressive. I especially love Rotterdam.

Milan is coming on a treat! Looks gorgeous. Very sleek.

& Yes - Birmingham does have quite an impressive skyline considering it's not a huge financial centre. Let's not laugh at someones opinion aye fellas.

But nothing can beat my London. (imo of course blah blah blah).


Awesome pictures guys. Keep it up.

Milano is gonna slay Europe soon, I think it is the most impressive improvement in the last few years with Moscow (but more elegant imo)

1. Frankfurt
2. Paris
3. Warsaw
4. Rotterdam
5 London
6. Moscow
7. The Hague
8. Istanbul
9. Milan
10. Oslo

An explanation for those who probably just think "WTF? London and Moscow at 5th and 6th place?"
I love London, but not rly for the skyline. I personally don't like it, it looks great on pics, but when I was there it just bored me. You don't rly get the feeling that those buildings are that high, when you're walking on the street.
Moscow: It's great, but I just don't get it now. It's like a couple of rly high skyscrapers put in one place, it needs some of middle high buildings and some low rises to make it more complex and consistent. And it has no soul like La Defense or Warsaw, so I thing I will never find it rly interesting.

Even though I totally respect your opinion, I think you are a delusional person.

Lack of broad vision and a detailed review of each of the cities led you to that opinion. At the Moscow International Business Centre has its own style. He is not like any one such center in the world. This futuristic skyscrapers district some very unusual and eye-catching design. This is called in Russia: spirit of city. Just that you never been interested by Moscow skyscrapers. You are trying to maintain the integrity of itself to create a small picture of skyscrapers in Europe using only skyscrapers EU. You do not want to delve into the skyscrapers of Istanbul Moscow and Yekaterinburg. This is called a lack of broad-minded. And there is not something to be proud.

You rly want to bring politics into this? I was in every of those cities besides Istanbul And that list is just my opinion, and how I feel about those skylines, just respect that. You don't have to change people with different opinions, It's like to change someone who likes brunettes to be into blondes, but u probably will call him racist.

No, I do not want to go into politics. It's true just narrow outlook. It can not only be EU. Can be pointed at the East Europe, only Germany or in cities where there are few buildings. (Easy to remember all the skyscrapers.) Simply in your case you sharpened on the EU and put on the 6 and 8 place objectively best.

My Grandpa was Belorussian, my best friend is Turkish and over the half of my friends are Russian, I just don't like those skylines that much like the others, but it has nothing to do with that they are east European.
You probably have some paranoia, that many EU citizens don't rly respect eastern countries, but it's not me.

Istanbul, Turkey by 2015 (Most of the towers are U/C and a few others will be U/C soon. Honestly, I don't want more towers to be built in Istanbul. It is already too crowded. Plus the Syrian refugees, plus the tourists, plus this plus that... The city is going for 20 million!)

I did that one back in 2012 I think 6 of them are already completed, 1 has changed design, 5 are U/C and 2 are Prep. Also there are 2 new towers that can be seen från this angle.
