To make a good skyline isn't just an addition of buildings.

I see a lot of european cities with lot of that and judgments are "ooh" "whaooh"
Sorry but London,Paris,frankfurt still the top list because they are balanced well and they'll continue in that way.
New contenders have to improve in the coming years before pretending to take the top list.
I respect Moscow because they can immediately be at the first rank due to the massive cluster they already built.

Warsaw. The skyline should look much different in 2-3 years there are 12 "towers" U/C from 80 to 230m (310 with spire)

What do you think Warsaw or Rotterdam?
Warsaw. More of unique buildings, even if some of the older ones lack in quality, PKiN makes an instantly recognisable dominant tower, it is also taller(11 towers 150+ against only 6 in Rotterdam).

You like Paris though.

1. Moscow (just epic) 2. London ( can be number 1 after the boom) 3. Frankfurt a really classic Style of forming a skyline and also experiencing the biggest boom ever..

I find it hard to place Paris somewhere.. I feel it’s detached of the city. Just a business city. (Maybe the pictures create this image and IRL it’s different)

Poor that you have such image of Rotterdam. It is time to see for yourself what wonderful city Rotterdam really is in every sight!

Rotterdam is not as bad as you think given the fact it is being overrun by waves of Polish immigrants. What I don't mind by the way!

On Topic:
You can't deny that on almost every high rise building or skyscraper in Warsaw there is an antenna or spire.

Every building in Warsaw you need to cut like 20-80 meters of because of the antenna’s. Btw since when is Muslim or Christen a racial thing? You cannot change race you can change your believe. So no racism.

All right than. I am a moron, but what makes you for saying: 'I will take Warsaw's antennas and spires over Rotterdam's minarets any day'? A muslim and islam hater?

Maybe he doesn’t like the architecture of the minarets? Maybe he doesn’t like being confronted with an faith?

Some people hate tall glassy skyscrapers..

Many buildings in Rotterdam have antennas as well, and I have no problem with that. The only height I care about is the full architectural height.

Spire is a part of a building.

Also, my comment was about the fact that Warsaw has a few quite unique buildings like Złota44, Warsaw Spire, PKiN, Rondo1, meanwhile in Rotterdam it's just De Rotterdam. The rest are just plain boxes with very similar cladding. No diversity at all.

On these photo you see at least 13 buildings. None of them have the similar cladding or colour! No diversity?

Rotterdam and Warsaw both have excellent skylines for European cities. I'd put both quite comfortably in the top 5.

Warsaw's skyline is probably more unique and recognisable due to the spires (sorry Sash :/ ), but I'd also argue that Rotterdam has probably the most organic looking skyline in the whole of Europe, and maybe the most similar to a North American skyline (Let's be honest NA skylines are the benchmark).
