With the Maastoren (165m) the Rotterdam skyline looks a lot better

Europeans really need to come to terms with teh fact that most of their cities (except the ones I mentioned) just don't have a skyline, or anything close to it.

(I'm not including Moscow in Europe)

And what's that steel structure inside La Grande Arche? Is it being repaired?

Paris without a doubt for me.. Frankfurt comes close, and then London.

The rest of the cities on this poll barely have a skyline except for Warsaw but unfortunaltey most of their buildings are boring and fat..
