First place goes to: Frankfurt, London, Paris (London would be out of concurrence if all the clusters stood together as one!)
Second: Rotterdam, Warsaw, Madrid
Third: Den Haag, Milan, Essen, and some other I don't remember right now,...

Vilnius

The skyline of capital of Lithuania is not that big YET, but NCC of Vilnius is growing rapidly and after couple of years it will be filled with more tall buildings

The Baltic skylines really put the Scandinavian ones to shame.

Considering Vilnius' size, its skyline is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

For me:
1) Paris
2) London
3) Frankfurt
4) Warsaw
5) Madrid

We have almost no skylines in our cities in Greece (just some old skyscrapers/highrises built before the height restriction) but interesting things happen in Nicosia/Cyprus. Despite its 200.000 inhabitants the city is developing a mini-skyline:

Nicosia-Cyprus











ps. most of the photos are from the members nick3dz and sk from the Greek part of Nicosia.

I thought it was fun to look this up. I looked at every city diagram of the following cities on Skyscraperpage.

The information of the status (u/c or proposed) is from Skyscraperpage. It's possible that something is missing (a diagram of a building).

Rotterdam
50m - 100m = 97
U/C 50m - 100m = 18
Proposed 50m - 100m = 7
100m - 200m = 15
U/C 100m - 200m = 2
Proposed 100m - 200m = 9
200m+ = 0
U/C 200m+ = 0
Proposed 200m+ = 2

Frankfurt
50m - 100m = 118
U/C 50m - 100m = 1
Proposed 50m - 100m = 1
100m - 200m = 22
U/C 100m - 200m = 4
Proposed 100m - 200m = 7
U/C 200m = 0
200m+ = 4
Proposed 200m+ = 3 (including 300m+)

Warsaw
50m - 100m = 70
U/C 50m - 100m = 5
Proposed 50m - 100m = 3
100m - 200m = 15
U/C 100m - 200m = 2
Proposed 100m - 200m = 11
200m+ = 2
U/C 200m+ = 0
Proposed 200m+ = 5

Madrid
50m - 100m = 100
U/C 50m - 100m = 2
Proposed 50m - 100m = 2
100m - 200m = 12
U/C 100m - 200m = 2
Proposed 100m - 200m = 0
200m+ = 4
U/C 200m+ = 0
Proposed 200m+ = 0

London
50m - 100m = 422
U/C 50m - 100m = 9
Proposed 50m - 100m = 30
100m - 200m = 33
U/C 100m - 200m = 6
Proposed 100m - 200m = 33
200m+ = 1
U/C 200m+ = 4
Proposed 200m+ = 5

Paris
50m - 100m = 350
U/C 50m - 100m = 0
Proposed 50m - 100m = 2
100m - 200m = 71
U/C 100m - 200m = 1
Proposed 100m - 200m = 3
200m+ = 1
U/C 200m+ = 1
Proposed 200m+ = 6

(Hong Kong has 104 buildings between 50-100m and 306 between 100-200m. New York has 2,513 buildings between 50-100m and 604 between 100-200m.)

@Skyline FFM - Here are some pics

Zalmhaven tower
+/- 188m & +/- 212m with spire

Schiekadeblok
This tower is going to be part of Central District wich may include another 200m+. +/- 240m
