You are right, since Frankfurt has the best skyline in Europe so far.

Again, guys! It's just a matter of opinion. Don't get too worked up about it as people tend to do in this forum.

Actually all comparative threads are about expressing ones personal opinion, which often leads to arguing.

But I wouldn't want to see these threads closed.

yep, it's true because they are not very in tune with the old Soviet buildings. But I think it's a very cool mix of old and new. If you take the perspective from the areas with new buildings, the Moscow City will look very harmonious.

Skylines are interesting only on pictures. When I have been to London, Paris, Moscow and Istanbul, I didn't saw any skyline and skyscrapers, but I saw beautiful streets and old buildings, monuments, churches, parks...

Does a thread showing skyscrapers districts from the ground, with the point of vue of the inhabitants ?
We could compare public spaces, streets connexions, general organisation, life within the disctrict (shops, coffees, events..) the perpectives, the eventual "canyon feel" ...

That would be a better subject to discuss than a skyline which is obviously subjective as everyone has its own tastes.
And this thread would become only pics and likes.

Not Europe's best nor largest/tallest by a long shot, but it's worth adding it to the mix as a pretty good representative of a typical large Far Southeast European city.

As has been stated , this is not a population page .. but I can't resist replying to your post ..

London's 'metro' by 'global' standards extends from the English midlands into the south of England and is arounbd 20million plus easily ..

London is a massive city ... it is bigger than Moscow ..

Moscow includes swathes upon swathes of rural areas in it's population .. a massive area .. on the same criteria London just wins .. easily ...

Moscow metropolitan area is 17 million citizens and 13,500 sq. km. London metropolitan area is also 17 million citizens but only 11,400 sq. km.

Frankfurt, Moscow and Paris look best. London skyline looks weird with randomly shaped skyscrapers which don't fit very well together
