I'm neither Dutch or Polish, but these two cities deserve to be in the poll. I used to consider both to have better skylines than either London or Paris, but maybe not any more. Warsaw continues to impress me, but it's probably not likely that it can stay ahead of either of these two much larger cities. I've dropped Rotterdam to 5th, but still have Warsaw in 2nd.

Having said that, they've both been a pleasant surprise to my north American eyes.

1. Frankfurt
2. Warsaw
3. Paris
4. London
5. Rotterdam

Impressive skyline. I think at present only skylines of Frankfurt and Paris look better.

I'm quite sure that in a couple of years London will move to 2nd or 3rd place in this competition.

Rotterdam is not doing very well in this poll.
Here is one I took today from a distance.
