This angle would be great if the skyscrapers in the foreground weren't blocking the ones in the back :/

You say it yourself. You name the designs of the skyscrapers; most of them are nice. The Gherkin in London isn't high, but it is nicely designed. I don't care if towers in Moscow are 200 or 300m, but if they are nicely designed, they contribute to a nice skyline.

Benidorm has a lot of relatively high buildings, but in terms of aesthetics they don't score a lot and therefore it isn't the best skyline in Europe.
Towers in Moscow are not beautiful?

Ghettos in Warsaw? Don't be ridiculous. Take your personal problems with Warsaw somewhere else and judge the skyline.
Disappoints me that you know nothing about Moscow. There are many beautiful buildings, modern houses, historic districts. You must visit Moscow.

Simmer down folks. We've had 2 European Skyline threads closed already. Be respectful of others and avoid city/country bashing.

I had Moscow in #1 spot for quite a while, but I think London has pulled ahead of it now.

1. London
2. Moscow
3. Frankfurt
4. Paris
5. Istanbul

No Moscow bashing here. Here are all Forumer welcome as long as they follow the rules. This also applies to "Apfelsaft"

Incidentally, we should celebrate. We have reached the 100 page.

In my opinion ist the other way. Frankfurt is nice, but nothing special (only Messeturm ist really great).
And Moscow is spectacular. Many different buildings and towers you don't find so in other cities. Very spectacular and unique. Many different styles, many different time periods.

Are there any significant constructions in Frankfurt? For a while, I thought it has the best skyline in Europe but London, Moscow and Paris caught up really fast. I'd say Paris doesn't really have much of a skyline but it's amazing how well organized its small skyline is and it adds up to its beauty.

Despite being number one in my current list, I'd say London could have done better in terms of zoning. It's a shame that its mix of old and new didn't turn out as good as New York's. Moscow on the other hand did pretty amazing with its nice little cluster of skyscrapers. I just hope it doesn't turn out to be another Dubai or Shanghai that almost lost the traditional architectures.
