Best Skylines outside of North America and Asia.

I was just looking at a the thread 15 Best skylines in the world and realised nearly all of them were in Asia and North America because obviously that is where the biggest skylines are.
So what are the best skylines outside of Asia and North America?

Australia/New Zealand/Pacific, Europe, South America, Africa. What is out there that usualy takes a back seat?

All in no particular order. The best thing about Euroscrapers is that they are a relatively new concept here. Very few post-modern 60's concrete office blocks about, but alot of ultramodern, glassy and elegant highrises.

Love the London photos!

Auckland has a great skyline that is generally quite overlooked.

Probably Sydney, Melbourne or Frankfurt.

Don't like South American skylines such as Sao Paulo because they lack height and are basicaly a sea of midrises. Not very nice IMO.

In South American cities such as São Paulo, it's hard to see a skyline at all. Nothing stands out.

I agree with both Goschio and Portu, except when it comes to Santiago, Chile.

I think this thread should change it name to Best Skylines outside of North America, Australia and Asia
