Frankfurt is definitely better than that Moscow is just beautiful in one small concentrated part. The commieblocks are ugly!

Frankfurt will still be the most beautiful skyline or a city in general in the future than Moscow. Even Paris will still be above Moscow!

Read the thread title again, it clearly says "Skyline", not "Most beatiful city"

Frankfurt is better right now.
Just wait when these 3-4 towers are built. And Moscow city will have
506 m - spire
380 m - Mercury
360 m - Vostok
309 m - Eurasia
299 m - Moscow - topped out
268 m - Naberazhnaya - done
255 m - Peterburg - topped out
242 m - Zapad - done
239 m - Imperia
193 m - Mirax Plaza
168 m - Morax Plaza - topped out
This will happen in 2010

For today the best 5 skylines are (in order):

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

There are no more really good skylines in Europe for today.


In 5 years i predict the list will be like this:

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

Maybe they will build some very good skylines in other cities too. For example Warsaw already looks like beating above mentioned cities, but still lack of something there.

Moscow is more beautiful than Frankfurt.

Yes it have the ugly commies, but the old buildings are better.

At old arhitecture Moscow is in the same league with Paris, London, Roma. *

* - even though they are more beautiful than Moscow, but at least they are in the same league.

I like the new Moscow but cmon how can you compare it to Frankfurt? Yes, Frankfurt has not so tall buildings as Moscow but its more beautiful and german engineered
In Moscow i see only 7 buildings pushed together

The Moscow CBD is carefully engineered too, it is by no means a chaotic development which you seem to think it is. Just wait until it is finished

But the fact that the cluster is surrounded by an endless sea of commie blocks makes Moscow´s skyline quite dull. Just like Beijing etc.
