Because Sochi's Skyline is on the coast, that looks more unique to me.

For me Paris is the undisputed number 1.
London does not have half of the skyscrapers in Paris.
Frankfurt has a nice towers but poor densification low towers.

Moscow skyline- few giants nothing more.
Istanbul makes a big impression though is a little chaotic.
Nr. 6 - Warsaw getting better dynamic skyline.
7. Rotterdam Great low buildings and several towers.
8. Milan - constantly better.
9. The Hague- small but consistent.
10. Vienna-mini skyline

I have really enjoyed looking through this thread.

For me, the winners are - to my surprise - Rotterdam and The Hague: they are modern but also distinctly European and even distinctly Dutch in character. Both are stunners and they just ooze integrity.

I also like Warsaw - it's very characterful and I love how it's a non-corporate building that dominates.

Of the more modern skylines, Frankfurt is my winner. I love that the towers are understated. There's no gimmickry,and it seems to breathe in a way that Paris does not. But Paris is clearly very impressive and I, for one, love that they have preserved the skyline of the old city.

As for London, from a very few angles (mainly from parts of south London) it looks like an Emerald City and I love that. If they get it right, it could become fantastic. But, as a dedicated follower of Ray Davies, it's the view from Waterloo Bridge that counts for me, and that - at the moment - is a bit of a disaster (in both directions). I think they need more understated buildings where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

Moscow is very impressive, but I don't find it loveable.

I think in this thread were some good Photos of Sochi and I say it again, Sochi looks better because of skyscrapers in front of the black sea.(that's my opinion you can think whatever you want ) A nice green city with really good highrises. Thats why I positioned Warsaw a little bit lower in my rating.
