How come most European cities don't really have many skyscrapers in them? Paris had a pretty decent skyline, but even London didn't have much of a skyline, and it's about the size of New York.

Because building a huge skyline would cause them to destroy their history.

Thats what I was thinking. European cities don't need huge skylines, anyway.

Wow, Go Ne, it's a tough decision on the European skylines.

Bulgaria.....The mountains make it.

I guess I like Duseldorg and Frankfort better than most although I believe Antarctica is wonderful; it looks so peaceful. Actually, I like the night skylines better than during the day. They're just prettier. Hong Kong beats all though.
