This is a great shot of Frankfurt. It looks really big and dense from that angle.

The architectural quality of what's going on in Milan is impressive. Frankfurt, Paris and Warsaw are still far to reach in terms of quantity, though.

This is a shame, because there are many other beautiful cities in Europe which a longer stay are worth.

Agreed. All european capitals have something magic and beautiful inside. London,Paris, Madrid even cities like Belgrade, Zagreb or Warsaw - all of them have unique connection of most amazing historic places in the world and elegant modern architecture. Wait few years - our skylines will rise to world's lead. Still the best place to live. Not only London here in Europe.

This reminds me of some Aussies I met, who moved to London because they "wanted to see Europe" but they never left it in the 4 years they stayed there. They moved back to Australia eventually.

I'm not sure if 2-3 skycrapers is enough for that title...

Would be grat also, if they would do something with the TV-Tower.

Paris or Barcelona/Madrid would also be cool if I spoke their languages.

Also Prague , Munich , Milan und Florence are beautiful cities.

I also love cities that bring a healthy mix of old and new architectural culture together.

I think Yekaterinburg has a good chance to get the rank 9 or 10.

Dont forget about balkanic cities. They have specific kind of beautiful different than this one in richer european countries. Monumental Belgrade, Bucharest ( the city what can be european Art-Deco-Capital after some revitalizations) or Athens with amazing Acropolis ( yes, I know this isnt Balkans but its close enough ). Its not to much time to list all beautiful european cities here, they are everywhere on our continent.

It could be a good opportunity to learn another language, French or Spanish are not that difficult And you can easily survive with english in those cities anyway.

Stunning photos!

Also, from what I've seen Yekaterinburg definitely has the potential to rise into the top European skylines very soon.
