I don't know...I always thought that a city must have some mountains in the nearby. I think that is the reason that Brasilia (where I live ) is so boring!! Not only a single hill...I came from an ups and downs city, Belo Horizonte, and a miss those "russian hills" streets and avenues...

Santiago De Chile


Zakopane - Poland - Tatry Mountains



And lower parts of mountains in the left



City has no skyline at all, it's small resort, but VERY popular due to beauty of the mountains (really stunning, I've been there a few times in highest parts. You should see it, some call them "pocket Alps" ).

Fantastic photos!
I also love to see in cities that have mountains in its background, is something magic, and fascinating, always giving us the scale of magnitude of nature, and its extreme beauty

These cities that have been posted, I highlight Santiago and its modern skyline, and the contrast with the beautiful Andes, Rio de Janeiro a beautiful city, and Beirut and Jounieh, in which I declared fan!
