This city belongs not in this thread.

It depends what the limitations are to this thread.

Is it the BEST European Skyline ... if that's the case then the only pictures we should be seeing are those from London, Moscow, Frankfurt, Paris, Istanbul and Rotterdam because those are the only 6 which can even be discussed here.

If it's a debate on Europes BEST skylines (e.g top 20) then Birmingham can be posted, same as places like Milan, Benidorm, Barcelona, Manchester, Liverpool, Kyiv etc.

1) it's your opinion

2) I think here as "best european skyline" we mean the top10...as everyone always posted their own top10

Birmingham belongs definitely not to the top 20.

This Cities are all better than Birmingham or Manchester.

Moscow, Istanbul, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Warsaw, Ekaterinburg, Ankara, Milan, Vienna, Izmir, Rotterdam, Madrid, Benidorm, Kiev, Brussels, Naples, Berlin, Cologne, The Hague, Munich, Amsterdam.

On what basis? Height?

In that case then we've answered this question. Moscow followed by London.

Close the thread.

Number and Height. The most important part to compare skylines. Only then comes the look.
