Skylines of largest Nordic&Baltic cities

Everyone is welcome to post pictures of skylines (only) of N&B (only) cities around 100k +. This would enable easy evaluation, comparison and search for them.

2 pics per day per individual would keep it easy to go over.

P.S. If there is a similar thread delete this one or merge it.

Small and low quality photo from probably one of the best places to take photos of Vilnius new skyline:

And that's usual angle of NCC:

Great idea! It inspires me to another thread idea: "aerials of largest N&B cities". These 2 photos are really great and unusual of Riga. Oh God, these days are so much to photograph in Riga - new TV Tower enlightenment, 30 other light decorations in festivity time, and then also this lunapark tower should be worth to visit surely. And just today I bought 70-300 mm lens! Only problem now - to find time to get all these photos!

Regarding to this thread - tried to find "skyline" of other latvian city which belongs your defined criteria - Daugavpils, but couldn't find and doubt there is any such pic becaus Daugavpils hasn't much of a skyline

Oslo pics are not a skyline pics, sorry. City skyline - city silhouette at horizon, there is mountains at horizon.

Right, hadn't thought of that
Made a quick search and have come up with alternative pics to fit the criteria.

Thanks - photos are great. I am looking forwards to see more Helsinki and Copenhagen skylines... and some Stockholm as well

I like the way Malmo/CPH Bridge supplements the skyline.

Sorry, didn't realize it was only 2 pics per day. I'll just refrain from posting anything the next three days to make up for it.

Nice one - haven't heard any news from Klaipeda lately. Skyline for the size of the city is so cool.
