No, maybe I simply don't think it makes that much of an impact on the skyline as a whole.

The most majestic skyline in Europe, a very well distributed density!

Haha I actually agree. Although I can't stand the building itself, it doesn't have too much of an impact on the rest of the skyline as a whole. Plus it's mostly blocked by the Shard anyway from where I usually view it.

No offence but those Russian cities have a really kitschy architecture.

Proof that no height is most important but the quality and location.

For me Moscow, London and Paris are clearly the Top 3 in Europe.

Moscow is the best imo. Nice high skyscrapers, the seven sisters, a TV-tower and many other nice towers.

London has the CW, the gerkin and the Shard, what makes it #2. I don't like most of the other towers. But all in all the city has a wonderful skyline.

Paris has also many nice buildings and the Tour Eiffel. But it needs two or three skyscrapers in the cluster that makes it more unique. So it's just #3.



Some words to Istanbul. It has some nice skyskrapers. I like the sapphire. But it's a bit spreaded out and some towers aren't as elegant as they should be in a city like Istanbul. Furthermore Istanbul in my opinion shoulden't even have a skyline. I associate Istanbul always with old houses on the hills and some minarettes and narrow streets. IMO a skyline don't fit for a sity like Istanbul (the same for St. Petersburg by the way). So it is just my #6 (could ba also 7).



Then the next three that can be compared are Warsaw, Rotterdam and Frankfurt.

For me Warsaw is clearly in front. Nice buildings, nice densety, nice high and the Palace of Culture. It could even exceed Paris in the future.

The second best is Frankfurt. I like the Messeturm. The Commerzbank-Tower is also pretty nice. The rest I don't like so much. But it makes a nice skyline. (Also I don't like the rest of the city.)

Rotterdam seems to have a pretty skyline in Europe. But ,I don't know why, I don't like it so much. The buildings are all this "Netherland-Style" and good to fill a skyline, but without an accent. Except the Nationale Nederlanden. That's my favorite in Rotterdam. (I also was once in Rotterdam and it seemed to me like it was total empty. There weren't much people in the streets and not really much cars. It was like extinct. Like a big village. Maybe that also marked my view of Rotterdam a bit ) So it's just my #7 (could ba also 6).



Than comes the best of the rest. I've choosen Benidorm, Vienna and Milan.

Benidorm has just some high towers that make a skyline looking very latin.

Vienna woulden't be in the list without DC1. But the UNO-city is also nice.

Milan is really not my favorite skyline, but is hay some towers and so a skyline. That's why I put in on the #10.



Yekaterinburg will definitely make it in the top 10 in the near future. Maybe even next year.

Kiev will be also interestin to observe. And Dnepropetrovsk.

Than there could be some polish and turkish cities that can become nice.

Madrid has just these four skyscrapers standing there alone. It's nice to look at them, but I think they don't make a real skyline. Maybe if there will be build sone buildings around. They even don't have to be skyscrapers.

Naples looks nice, but also too few buildings and to few high.

The Hague looks for me like a small village. I just don't like it.

Batumi looks like a funfair. Despite it has a waterfront, what is a nice condition for a skyline, they deface it. It is really ugly. (By the way, Georgia is lokated in Asia, without parts in Europe. So it don't belong to this thread)
