Paris wins it for me. The size of the skyline + the density of the buildings + symmetry + its shape (like a hill - forms a crescendo) + situated in a perfect spot in the city + the context of the other landmarks in relation.

Moscow is a close second

I must say that is a superb picture of Paris - possibly one of my favourites that I've seen on this thread so far.
The sheer contrast between the foreground and the background is glorious!

Maybe that is part of its charm.

It is not the capital. Of course, it is a disgrace.
