Nah, its about 5 times the size.

But still, 3 hours from south to north would be achievable.

It's important to look at the intent. In this case it was to negate entries of suburbs or satellite clusters of large urban areas. Niagara Falls, Ontario may be within 100 miles of Buffalo, but it doesn't owe its existence to Buffalo or is it part of the Buffalo metropolitan area. It's not even in the same country.

Is Antwerp part of the Rotterdam metropolitan area? No.

Well, there are a lot of metropolitan areas that include more than one country, like the Oresund region or San Diego - Tijuana, and Buffalo - Niagara Falls is also one of them:

yes, besides the Antwerp - Rotterdam example is a bad one. It is within 100km (78km), but they are a bit too far away still due to the wide rhine delta

I guess they have a point.. main criteria should be a "stand alone" city, right?

Madison, WI has a rather significant skyline of mid-rises (there is a height restriction)

What about Port Louis, the Mauritian capital (137,000 inh.)?

A couple more of Rochester:

City: 107,000
Metro: 187,000

Located roughly 75-100 miles from the Twin Cities. It is not part of the same metropolitan area, very different feel in Rochester. I lived there for a year, and it wasn't big enough for me. However, I really did come to enjoy the city by the end of my time there.

OK. Seriously, none of these cities even come close to SARAJEVO-BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA. Not one of these cities has such historical significance, not one of them has such culture and endurance of spirit throught ages.

A little more of Sarajevo- there's modern downtown, historical ottoman old town, mix of old and new all blended in beneath olympic mountains.

And need I remind you all that this city was completely destroyed just 17 years ago.

It's definitely spectacular and beautiful, but its metro area population is over 500,000.

I admit that Sarajevo is beautiful and has historical significance, especially in european history.
However, to be honest, the skyline of Sarajevo is not that impressive,
Olny the tallest tower, Avaz twist tower(176m with antenna spire), stands out alone and there are a few midrises there.

Beacuse this thread is about the small city skyline, not about historical significance of the city.

By the way, how far is it from Zagreb(around 780,000, the capital of Croatia) and Belgrade(around 2 million, the capital od Serbia)?
There are no cities over 500,000 within 160km (Or this thread only counts within its territory no matter how close neighboring cities are in the other countirs.)

Too bad though; the cityscape and setting look ideal.
