Damn, how could anyone consider Madrid, Birmingham or Liverpool best in Europe?
Its obvious that:
1.Ffurt/Paris
2.London/Rdam/Warsaw
Why do we have to discuss it over and over again?

I didn t think Warsaw been so beautiful, although my vote was for Frankfurt, Warsaw call a lot my atention, and in my point of view Warsaw is the 2nd skyline of the Europen Union.

And your point is? Paris is ahead of Warsaw in the poll, I guess its clear by now that youve got some issiues with Poland, your girlfriend/boyfriend left you for polish boy/girl or what?

Paris has the densest of all European skylines. It's just...the towers are boring and boxy. If there would be just some tall spires added, then it would beat Frankfurt.
Frankfurt isn't very dense yet, but it's skyscrapers got class and are unique!
London's skyline is to spread out in this huge city. And Canary Warf, the only real cluster, is boring and boxy again.
Warsaw, in my eyes, is completely overrated. Honestly, there is this tall socialist Skyscraper, but that's it. The rest is too spread out and has more of a commiblock charme.
One city, that actually is very underrated, is Benidorm. Yeah, ist looks fugly! XD And it beats Warsaw's commiblock charme by far. But it is so dense on a large front, that it looks damn impressive, hands down.

A little mathematical rating :

Quality-Height-Size-Density-Setting-All

Frankfurt: 10-10-8-8-8-44
London: 9-10-10-7-8-42
Paris: 7-9-9-10-7-41
Rotterdam: 8-7-8-9-8-40
Warsaw: 6-9-7-8-7-37

Well that's a very good method of finding out which skyline do you prefer.

What's the problem? Let's simply delete the poll and change this thread into "Frankfurt Skyline Thread" because Frankfurt is clearly the best in EU and other options clearly not.

Democracy is Democracy. And Democracy states clearly:
Frankfurt am Main - 377 votes
Rotterdam - 116 votes
London - 132 votes
Birmingham - 20 votes
Liverpoll - 59 votes
Paris - 249 votes
Madrid - 68 votes
Warsaw - 200 votes

In Democracy there is no division on citizens of second category (Poles) and of first category (Other), so I don't understand the fuzz about Warsaw having 200 votes. I personally don't care that 377 Germans were voting on Frankfurt or that 249 French were voting on Paris. So what's the big deal? Since when voting on Warsaw is a problem?
