Istanbul is quite underrated in this forum. It is a major historical centre and has a lot of modern skyscrapers as well. It's quite a hidden gem. Where is most of that skyline located - the European side or the Asian side?

When I used to play Simcity 3000 Unlimited. I always think of Frankfurt when I play the European set.

I think Frankfurt's skyline would be better than London even in 2015

I totally think Frankfurt is the best present European skyline. Not much proposed for Frankfurt so it wont keep its top spot.

London may only have Canary Wharf and 'couple of 2,3 buildings' as you put it, however, this is still enough to be one of the top few skylines in Europe (Frankfurt being top)

London has alot of highrises and it's not just Canary Wharf. Also I look at CW as London's counterpart to Paris' La Defense. CW though has One Canada Square which is one of the most iconic euroscrapers.

That's what I was implying. There are several high/mid/lowrises that dot the skyline but are relatively unheard of...
