I've always liked Tour Montparnasse, the original Paris (and European) skyscraper. The perfect complement to French cigarettes - Gauloises and a Citroen Maserati.

All of these buildings are unique but as the whole there is a lack of the harmony.

It has its own harmony.

That picture is just downright impressive. Once 52 Lime Street, 40 Leadenhall, 100 Bishopsgate and The Pinnacle are complete, this will be the most impressive view in Europe.

That's how my top looked more than year ago...

1.Moscow
2.Frankfurt
3.London
4.Paris
5.Warsaw
6.Istanbul
7.Rotterdam
8.Milan
9.Vienna
10.Madrid

And that's how I put them today. I don't think Europe has an undeniable best skyline. Each has its own both advantages and disadvantages

1.Frankfurt(+1)-actually the best european skyline, has a lot of quality towers, but the development in on the very low level
2.Moscow(-1)-can be the best one in the future, has a great potental, but now tha'ts just a cluster, however they are incomparable high, and each one looks amazing
3.Paris(+1)-I used to dislike this skyline, but now I see that it's growing. It's really huge cluster, but some really high towers are needed, then it could be the best in Europe.
4.London(-1)-the quality of each building is excellent, I like City, but it could be denser and higher
5.Warsaw(=)-really good beggining for the future skyline, but now it's too spread
6.Istanbul(=)-huuuuge number of tall buildings, amazing level of development, but I still can't understand it's skyline...
7.Milan(+1)-that's really shocking, how it has appeared just from nothing year ago...maybe I didn't noticed it, but now, I see it's growing just like a mushrooms after rain
8.Rotterdam(-1)-very nice, balanced skyline, but it pales against the backdrop of suck a titans like Moscow or Istanbul for example
9.Madrid(+1)-quite strange skyline with the 4 high(really high)towers in a row and some skyscrapers lower nearby, anyway these 4 looks gorgeous
10.Vienna(-1)-I like this city, I like the towers themselves, but it has no skyline, just some skyscrapers and the TV tower in it...

I've been to London several times and I find it pretty chaotic compared to the other Western capitals not only in terms of the skyline, but it's only my humble opinion.

Denser it will be in a few years. But higher? It can't be.. due to the proximity of the London City Airport.

Attention:

Do not start yet another British/French war!!!!! This thread is finally back on the right track, but the last few remarks from some forumers in the last few pages of this thread are not okay. I know QuantumX and Yellow Fever won't allow any bashing in this thread, so just stop it now!!!!

Thank you
