Istambul's skyline is pretty underrated here. To me it's top 5 even though it might lack some recognizable buildings, but when you look at it as a whole you know it's Istambul.

On the other hand Warsaw is way too overrated. I mean its nice and all, but not THAT nice.

Also Kiev has alot of potential I think

I would say the opposite, Istanbul has some great towers and a great skyline, but i cant recognise where most of the buildings sit in the skyline due to massing, they are too far from anything famous in Istanbul other than the semi regular bridge shots (but then other cities have suspension bridges that could be confused), whereas Warsaw has a generally concentrated skyline of two or three instantly recognisable skyscrapers (at least to us on here). The best European skylines to me are ones that have both historic icons mixed with modern ones, Istanbul doesn't have any modern recognisable skyscrapers as of yet that are predominant on the skyline, or set as a backdrop against the historic skyline of Istanbul. All of this is of course based on the images posted on this forum, from staying in Istanbul a few years ago the modern areas of Istanbul were not on my tourist radar or even that visible when traveling around; a lot of building have of course been constructed since i was there though.

Istanbul has one easy recognizable modern building, that polygonal building in Levent.

Soyak is the best building as you mentioned,
  • Trump Towers
  • Spine Tower
  • Sapphire
  • İş Bank Towers
  • Varyap Meridian
  • Rönesans
are also recognizable but Soyak is the most distinctive one as you mentioned.

That's a nice view of Levent and the Bosporus even if the weather is not cooperating.

The Best european skyline is La Defense no doubt about it because La Defense has more towers, more density and continue to grow. (French want to keep the spot of 1st Business center in Europe) Frankfurt is a stronger number 2.

When the Hermitage Plaza and the Phare Tower will rise in La Défense it will be a no match.

London have a good potential but actualy The City (or Canary) does'nt have many tower (less than La Défense), maybe in the future if London's towers rises fast The City can compet but today La Defense have a good advance and Hermitage towers and Phare will increase that.
