I'm here after a small brake. After reading all new posts written during my absence I'm very grateful that this ridiculous war has hopefully finally ended, as I suppose.

I must also say, how much I am proud of my city. I feel really honoured by such an elite company of western cities put alongside of Warsaw. Especially, when we remember, that's the only one of those set here in that contest which comes from the other side of the former Iron Curtain!

I think everyone would agree, we have really beautiful cities in Europe and no one should feel inferior to USA or any other country.

That's because it's about the "best skyline in the EU", not the "best skyline in Europe" otherwise Moscow and/or Istanbul would be included

Certainly. But as far as I know Moskow is not going to be an EU city;]
What I was suggesting in my last post was the fact, that only Warsaw has comparable skyline of all EU newcomers

And I really prefer modern centers of capital cities to those historical. We've got other cities to have such;]

IMO London's skyline is much better than Paris skyline - La Defense looks such a beautiful place from central Paris, but when You're in LD the whole effect get lost.

My personal ranking:
- Frankfurt
- London
- Rotterdam
- Warsaw
- Paris

Yes, of course La Défense is not the the warmest and most welcoming place in the world, but, for example, when you are in the centre of London you can't see any tower... An when you are in the city district or in CW you can see maybe two towers....

Anyway the thread is about skylines.....

on the other hand; the long distance effect of the la defense district is pretty moderate and without any skyline'ish structure, but thats a typical mid- to low- rise cluster effect.

Sorry, I'm not sure to understand you... my poor english has its limits...

All that I understood is that you have underrated La Défense (and its skyline).....
