I would you rather recommend the German or English articles.

Frankfurt has today exactly 30 highrises with 100m.
14 of these are higher than 150m.

A building is currently under construction and 6 are planned for the next few years.
I was using the English wikipedia-article on Frankfurt .

Maybe one day you'll see Warsaw yourself and change your opinion .

It's Pole, not 'pollack'. I'm half-Belgian anyway too, so call me a waffle-eater .

It is the historic reason. Add to that a communist regime of nearly 50 years and you get the ugly Commieblocks that were built for quick housing. At least the old city is beautiful and some districts survived the war to some extent. As said, I'd prefer to exchange all the towers for the pre-war Warsaw.

I know everone has his own opinion, but why are so many here so impressed by The Hague and rank it sometimes even pretty high? For me we have many skylines in Europe that are much more impressive and beautiful.

The Hague's skyline may be very small indeed... However, it is not only size that matters or is it!?

Here's Putano's take on the Hagie's skyline:

I know. But as I said, there are many better looking skylines in my opinion.

Example? I didn't see anyone ranking Hague high.

Of course Hague is worse than top 5 EU (London, Paris, Istanbul, Moscow, Frankfurt) and probably worse than Warsaw and Milan but that's all, in Europe there is no many good skylines so even Hague can be easily included in top 10.

You could easily conclude it by the simple fact I was born Warsaw... I'm Polish of course.

And this "warsaw is ugly because it was destroyed blah blah blah" it's just kind of excuse. No one cares if city was destroyed.

As a Pole, you would know the hard history of the city. A Pole would not use 'pollack' and 'his' would indicate it isn't your capital.

Hard history? You mean that Poles were historically so weak and they were invaded and destroyed over and over? It's no one but Poland's blame. Stop seeking for such excuses. Maybe common Pole wouldn't use a word "pollack", but I'm not a common one, I truly hate this nation especially for what you show now - "we are so poor and weak because HARD HISTORY". All of you just keep talking about past and history, you complain that you were treasoned in WWII, I hate this. I am focused on present time, and when I see that Warsaw looks bad, commieblocks everywhere, poor quality skyscrapers I won't say its beautiful capital, because compared to western cities it's definetly not. Stop talking about history, no one cares about it. Write your own history instead.

I must disagree. I lived in Spain and Italy for many years and I'm sure that there are not so many commieblocks as in Russia, Central Asia or countries of ex CCCP which I know quiet well.
