moscow skyline is more like a fetus compared to the ones which play on the global scale. this thread is about them and i don't think european skylines belong here.

For a city of 11 million, I'd expect more. In a historical sense, Moscow's skyline is stunning... but when you're up against cities like New York, Hong Kong, Dubai even... Moscow is lacking in comparison.

here's my take on density, architectural variety, balance, and a gorgeous setting...

There is no doubt that Sydney, Melbourne, Seattle, Los Angeles and San Francisco have better skylines than any European city.
Compared to the pictures of Sydney the Moscow pictures on the last page look like an urban wasteland.

I would argue that the "Best" skyline would have to have a combination of density and symetry. Thefore I would argue NY and Tokyo shouldn't even be in the top 4.

1. Hong Kong
2. Chicago
3. Toronto
4. Frankfurt
5. Dubai

Toronto is my Top 5, too. Very underrated and ignored. Looks well balanced and arranged from every angle. When there is fog or clouds between the skyscrapers it looks like a vulcano.

It was only a question of time, until Moscow Spam would reach this thread.
