Wow ... for a country that cannot even into space, Poland (Warsaw specifically) has a very good skyline and city centre.

That last Canary Wharf picture is amazing, it reminds me of Calgary or Edmonton.

"A country that cannot even into space" - What the heck are you trying to say?
That Poland doesn't have an own space research program?

Those are the kio towers, kind of scary to be under one, it feels like the building is coming down on you . Here is a pic with the new obelisc on it. The obelisc looks weird in pictures lol but that is because is a mechanical one. Check out the video, it's almost as cool as the towers . If anyone wanted to know is 93m tall made by Calatrava, an it looks like is alive!!

In this thread I have left Rotterdam. Compare Rotterdam to Paris, Frankfurt or London, it's almost offensive. Above all, having removed from the list to Madrid, which has 5 skyscrapers taller than the tallest of Rotterdam, or not including Benidorm, whose skyline is spectacular, regardless of beauty or ugliness of its buildings.

Madrid has 4 buildings taller than R'dam, but R'dam has more buildings between 100 and 150 than Madrid. Besides that, the R'dam skyline is much more denser and I find it even better and more beautiful than Madrid’s skyline.
Madrid’s 4 skyscrapers it self are beautiful, but doesn't fit or match with the rest.
Don't get me wrong, because I find Madrid one of the most exciting cities in Europe, but I don't have anything with the skyline.

Common. It is easy to use the worst angle of Madrid to compare it with the best angles of Rotterdam. Madrid isn't THAT bad.

There is more than just the 4 skyscrapers. These four skyscrapers are just what Rotterdam HASN'T...

Well, congrats I prefer seeing Rotterdam than Madrid's skyline. Those pictures don't make it any better.
