There is no argue that London has great quality on its skyscrapers but I don't think the overall skyline looks better than Moscow, Frankfurt and Paris. The distance between the main clusters Canary Wharf and City of London is too large to look good in the same skyline (it looks too spread out) and individually they aren't better than the cities I counted...

1. Paris - Best density and design in Europe. I don't mind the lack of height in this case.
2. Frankfurt - Good height and quality. From certain angles it deserves to be number one.
3. London - Due to the fact that I find CW one of the best Clusters in Europe. I like the boxy buildings.
4. Warsaw - Because of the palace of culture and science, the completion of Zlota 44 and Cosmopolitan Twarda 2/4 just ahead of Moscow and R'dam
5. Moscow - Massive Buildings, but too little variation in height
6. Rotterdam - I prefer waterfront Skylines and from each angle the Skyline is neat. Besides that the addition of Erasmus Bridge makes it just a fine Skyline. Needs one or two 200+ Buildings to make it top 5.
7. Istanbul - Lots of High-rises and skyscrapers, but very spread out. I like it from distance shot photos. That is also the downside.
8. Milan and The Hague - Lots of quality! Milan not dense enough and The Hague needs a couple more High-rises.
10. Barcelona, Kiev and Benidorm - Just worth mentioning them and best of the rest.

i dont think so, London is unique as it's each building, Paris is unique too but there aren't taller buildings than in London, so London is the first. Moscow is new city as it's skyline, there are only few normal or good buildings in Moscow, many of them are just waste!

My best 10 in Europe

I have to use the same analogy here, where height is not important!

1- Sochi/Izmir/Berlin
2- Bendidorm/Frankfurt
3- Istanbul/ Grozny
4- Moscow/Paris/London
5- Yekaterinburg/Milan
6- Novosibirsk/Kazan/Valencia
7- Rotterdam/St Petersburg
8- Liverpool/ Vladivostok
9- Barcelona/Samara/Krasnodar
10- Madrid/Hague

The Hague is in my top 5. Amazing quality/perfect urban design.

Paris - Not for me. I find it extremely dull. Afterall, it is a midget skyline but it will look much better once they build taller buildings in the heart of the La Defense.
London- Very organic and tall. To me, it is the best city in the world.
Moscow - It is too far away from the city center but the quality is very high and the towers are tall.
Istanbul - Some towers lack quality. You can't see a slight attempt for urban planning. They just build towers randomly everywhere.
Warsaw - IMO, better than Moscow and Paris because it is very organic and towers resemble Polish historical features.
Rotterdam - Even though some photos are great, Rotterdam reminds of an industrial waste land, transformed into a city. I guess this is the downside of northern European countries.

That's a fair opinion. Thanks for your honesty mate!

The Luftwaffe and the post-war construction transformed it into the city it is now a days.

Some parts of London remain very ugly for me. Guys tower ruins the Shard imo.
The best city in the world but its skyline needs some work, which luckily enough is taking place atm.

Yeah. Guys tower is atrocious.

London is so vast and actually has so many mid-rises unfortunately the big ones have to be in the right location to stand out.

Canary Wharf on it's own should become Europe's best skyline, especially as the peninsular is being developed opposite but when the all the clusters start emerging and joining, London will look unbelievable.

I still don;t actually think it's the best yet. I don't think Moscow is either. I actually think Moscow is being overrated.

For me the best are La Defense, Istanbul, Frankfurt and Warsaw.

In my opinion, the Shard is not ruined by anything. In fact, it is one of if not the best skyscraper in Europe in my eyes. However, I do agree that Guys tower is hideous.
I guess I would say it somewhat detracts from the skyline as a whole (although it's more than made up for by the marvels such as the Leadenhall building), but does not take anything away from individual buildings, namely the Shard.

Didn't you just say that Kazan was the best one in Europe?
