Washington DC. doesn't own any skyline only because it's not allowed to biuld taller buildings than the capitol.

Frankfurt and Munich are the strongest cities in Germany when it comes to economy, Berlin is on the eight place. Berlin is only the biggest city in Germany, but it is pretty poor The only skyscrapers that I can imagine there, are Hotels and apartments, cause the city isn't rly a business center


OK then excuse me for Washington dc

London's skyline looks worse...

This is skyline of Europe's business capital? I'd say It is poor as hell.
And you have to remember that you chose pic where all of the highest buildings are in one line.

Better now?

I agree that Warsaw's skyline is not the biggest one in Europe but Warsaw is capital of young democracy with lots of space for non-highrise development.

Warsaw's highrises have very clean designs, similar to North American skyscrapers. I like that and I don't want this to change for some crazy postmodern bull***.

Mate, I wouldn't say it's poor...
London's skyline is just incredible and I read there are about 100 skyscrapers planned or in construction.

It 's a question of a few years and no city in Europe will stand comparison with this city, maybe a little bit Paris with the future two new skyscrapers.

I don't care what will come in the future. We are talking about present state.

Exactly, look at the the picture above. Intensity, height, elegance and quality.

London is at this moment number two or three in Europe in my opinion. But within 5 years it will be number one, though it looks like that from certain angles already a bit.













Pictures by myself.

skyline in Moscow looks like a lonely mushroom in a huge field.it cant be the best in Europe. height does not mean ,,BEST''. Personally i prefer Skyline of Rotterdam.

Berlin had a better political situation after the war too, at least half of it was democratic Warsaw on the other hand, was communistic until 1989.

And a capital city, doesn't need a huge skyline either Look at Amsterdam, Washington dc...

This is an unedifying subject to discuss and I will not argue with you on this
