the thread is titled DISCUSS... and I never made a skyline ranking until now, I'm sure no one care , but here's mine:

1-Frankfurt (for the skyline more than the buildings)
2-London (for the buildings more than the skyline, the two clusters disperse the global effect)

we are discussing about the skyline, so I don't care about how tall are the buildings or whatever...

3-Warsaw (the skyline shape is already impressive, even with less skyscrapers than Paris or Moscow)
4/5 - Paris Défense/Moscow with no specific order (Paris has nice buildings, but the skyline is quite flat; Moscow has tall buildings but not a real skyline, it's too compact, and as an architect I hate the Mercury tower)
6 - Istanbul (lot of tall buildings but definitely not a nice skyline, it's much better the mosques' profile on top of the golden horn)
7 - Milan (nice skyline even with not very tall buildings, with more coming)
8 - Rotterdam (quite a flat skyline, but with great vantage points to look at)
9 - The Hague (it's a very nice, small skyline)
10 - Naples (the bay is in one of the best natural scenarios in Europe and, even if the "centro direzionale" looks like an alien, it stands at the 10th position for me)

This is my top ten, after that Barcelona, Madrid, Vienna and the others.

Benindorm deserve a special place... in hell

You have some weird point of view about your country. You really regret that USSR is gone? That's true that Soviet Union did some inventions and that it had some world class technology and science. But for average citizen it didn't matter. It was just for show, to show for the world that Soviet Union is great superpower, you know this whole Cold War thing. But Soviet Union wasn't really technologically advanced, atleast people didn't contributed from this. I bet that per capita it wasn't that innovative like capitalistic states. I think you should be happy that communism is over and actually more people can do business and can become richer. Before war on Ukraine Russia was doing pretty good in terms of income, almost as good as Baltic States, now with those sanctions your economy will suffer but still, Russian Federation is much better place to live than Soviet Union.

A skyline has to possess character ..


Benidorm is a just a ramshackle collection of spanish tourist boom apartments....


Give me Berlin anyday over that ... and yes, Berlin IS still recovering from the 2nd world war...


A skyline has to have a heart and soul ... Gravitas...

Berlin has still to recover from socialism. This hit the city really hard. To this, an incompetent city government.

The sad thing is, there are new highrises and skyscrapers proposed regularly for the past couple of years. Investors want to build them, but it's the city officials, that are against it. And even if a project is going to be built after fighting for it for many years, they reduce the heights considerably in the end, so that neighbors aren't "verschattet" (lie in the shadow) or because it may steal the show of the ~370m TV Tower or...just because. It's a tragedy...

oh common look at Warsaw, it had even a worse situation. I love Berlin and how it looks now, for me it doesn't really need highrises. I mean Frankfurt is the business city in Germany and it has the best skyline in Europe for me Berlin is known for its past, tolerance and multiculturalism and I think it should stay like that, I don't wanna see it develop into a business, snobbish city

As Unicredit tower is the symbol of contemporary Milan, the spire is a link between to new and old architectures in the city. It is the modern version of the Cathedral (the symbol of ancient Milan) spires . I wonder if you have never noticed it before.

Rotterdam is a nice city, but I don't like the boxy shape of those highrise.
There too boxy.
