Istanbul and Paris are indeed beautiful and gorgeous.

But one cannot deny that London is one of the most beautiful City's on earth.

When it comes down to THE best - there is no such thing. It comes down to what you believe is the most beautiful. For example, not every man thinks one women is the most beautiful on earth - the same applies to City's.

However... there is a list of top class Cities that are absolutely beautiful... New York, Paris, Rome, San Francisco, Cape Town, Sydney, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Dubai, etc. It all comes down to taste. But one should not be so ignorant to say that;
A) The British have no taste
B) No one has said London is beautiful.

Both of these statements are completley un-true, false, and show a lot of ignorance. Shame.

-----------------------------------------------------------

I am LOVING the Rotterdam and Hague pictures. They look gorgeous. Definitely some of my favourite skylines in the world.

Paris is just GORGEOUS. ESPECIALLY at night time - it looks very nice.

Moscow is so impressive... good pictures lately! Nice work. I've been following the Evolution Tower since the start! Love it.

Milan! BEAUTIFUL. Considering there pretty much wasn't a skyline a decade ago it's incredibly impressive to see how much this has come a long.

Warsaw is brilliant... It's hard for a modern European skyline to beat Warsaw in terms of history with the Palace. It's gorgeous and is a real centrepiece of the City. Love it. (By History I meant in terms of a historic skyline... i.e. an old skyscraper).

And my London.... nothing can beat my London in my opinion. Its gorgeous and in terms of quality incredibly hard to beat.



Awesome news guys. Keep it up and keep the City bashing to a low. Learn to love all of the European Cities for what they are.

Frankfurt had the biggest coherently old town in Germany before the bombing.
It is currently trying to reconstruct a small part.

I like London either. Every city on this planet has own their styles. And come on dude! We are talking about f*cking London. If i ask you to tell me a random city, you'd say first London. Of course there's another cities like Istanbul, Paris, NY, Amsterdam, Frankfurt etc. But just as i said, every city has own their beauty. And i would really like to live there someday. And generelly, im not that kinda boy who can live anywhere he can find. <3

There is a difference between discussion and insulting a nationality .

Nor were you talking about skylines, but if a city is beautiful or not!
