The Lviv pictures is horrible. Although our skyline is pretty modest, that picture doesn't show even half of it. Where is the Dominican Cathedral? That is the most noticable dome in Lviv's skyline. Korniakt's Tower is also not present.

With more than a third of those being Polish, I can conclude that this was a very "patriotic" poll indeed.. Plus it seems to me the cities would have to be presented, or nominated before voted on (I'm not that familiar with the system at ROS), so my conclusion is that all this list shows is Polish dominance of the forums..

But I have to agree with Warsaw, it deserves to win.

Thanks for the votes. I added Ljubljana to the list and changed the picture of Lviv, I hope it looks better now ;)

@Timoth12: Do you have some new pics of Bratislava skyline?

I was wondering how the heck Belgrade got such a high rating for skyline. Then I noticed that 25% of the voters gave it a 10 :|. If we make the radical assumption that Belgrade doesn't have a perfect skyline, it's score goes down to 5.8

Some of it is funny, like zelonograd. While Lviv for example should be much above Kyiv.

As much as I love Kyiv, it doesn't have a skyline. It needs to be looked at individually, square by square, building by building. It's too large to have a proper skyline.

If you'd look closely you'd notice many people gave Belgrade a 10, and they were far from all being Serbs. They voted for the city itself, and not the skyline. Now here's a big :| from me too.

Did I say they were all Serbs?

Which one would think to be besides the point in a forum called "Rate Our Skylines".

Rarely does one vote for the skyline, they vote for the whole city. Look at Prague, barely any skyline but high ratings. Or Toronto, fantastic skyline yet low ratings. No need to get all :| on us just cause Belgrade's beating Sarajevo, no need to get your panties in such a twist...

I vote exclusively for the skyline, and in my experience most others do the same. For the city overall there exists a "rate our architecture" forum. And I did not mention Sarajevo at all. Please calm down.

Not yet, but maybe this picture is better, I would add him in the meantime, more skyline is behind the right side of the picture:
