Apfelsaft, again......... How am I bothered to come to this forum and hear unfounded criticism of Moscow, which is based more on personal animosity towards the country and the political situation... I wonder why you don't smear the Chinese, Indian or Mexican cities... Why do you think that we're ennoble Moscow over all European capitals?.you obviously have some oddity in your head, with all that is connected with Russia. You can't even just quietly pass by, you definitely need something bad to say HATERS GONNA HATE

How come London skyline is nicer if it almost empty? London skyline in terms of size, and greatness may be compared to that of Yekaterinburg. But definitely not with that of Paris.

What a skyline looks like has nothing to do with whether it's empty or not, and if people think London has a nicer skyline than Paris, they are entitled to their opinion.

Here I disagree. London is good though because here the whole 2 cluster that look from different angles in a new way-a photographer's dream ... Paris reminds Moscow that its skyline "flat", it is almost the same on all sides, but impressive and covers huge space (this is not similar to Moscow), he resembles a fortress. In a word: London has an "air" Skyline, Paris more monumental, how do Paris can be monumental (speech about the skyline, of course).

I've always liked the Frankfurt skyline. It might even be my favorite European skyline. Not sure.

It's going up very fast. In fact I believe there are more constructions sites and cranes in London than in main areas of Dubai, judging visually. And more 100M+ projects U/C than Moscow and only behind Instanbul in Europe, so it's no way can be compared to Yekaterinburg.

The Warsaw Spire is indeed a nice add-on! The cluster on the right is growing faster than the other one as well: two towers (195 & 140 m) are being prepared there now (and a 96m U/C), while one 159-m is U/C on the left.

How many 250+ projects in London? 0 !! In Yekaterinburg 3. 280 + 280 + 300. A few skyscrapers 200+ While I certainly do not dispute that in London more built. But only because the city more. You should not underestimate Ekaterinburg. He will fight to the top in this topic in 5-10 years. I think it will be the seventh after Moscow (1) Istanbul (2) Paris (3) London (4) Frankfurt (5) Warsaw (6). It will be 7 best Skyline in 2025 that none can match. Others will be very far away, and they will be considered only on the basis of personal preference.

I've found you in the past to be quite hostile towards London, but even knowing that fact, comparing London to Yekaterinburg regarding the skyline is a bit much.
