I dont see why Birmingham is a joke, yes its not going to come first on this poll but i wouldnt call it the worst skyline in Europe. It depends what u like i guess.

I would much rather have this as a skyline than Barcelona's

^It's just not much. Even Amsterdam and The Hague have a better skyline.

And Rotterdam, well....

I don't say that the skyline of Birmingham is the worst in Europe, but there is a much better skyline (Benidorm, for example, or Barcelona), not on this list. As I, Birmingham isn't excessively high buildings (only one or two stand out a bit) because the low heigt of everything that surrounds it do to have the feeling of being important to a skyline. 4 Barcelona has more than 120m highrises (3 over 140m), and more than 15 between 100 and har about Birmingham? Naples is even better.

It isn't a joke the skyline of Birmingham, but it appears as one of the best in Europe. After checking the names of cities on the list, I can only say that anyone did, of course, was english.


NAPLES

Im sorry but barcelona has a pig of a skyline, the individual buildings are nice (and the height is good if you consider that the main thing of a skyline) but collectively it looks disconnected, most buildings have the same height which means that noting stands out and the height is comletely lost. Valencia has more of the same and looks to me to have no defined skyline at all. Before you respond remember that a good skyline is based on the aesthetic not the height or number of buildings! Failure to include that fact in your response is not a proper response

Birmingham



Liverpool

But Birminghams skyline has several little skylines miles apart from each-other.Birmingham doesn't have height yet but in time it'll have quite a few 130+ towers & one 180-200+ tower.It has one of the best skylines in Europe minus Paris,Warsaw,London and a few others.And Birmingham definitely has a better skyline than Naples.Naples has a tiny skyline made up of few tall buildings (the highest being 129 metres [Birmingham has taller])
