London is in my opinion the best City in the World. It combines old historic buildings with modern skyscrapers. Cities like Shanghai or Dubai are single-sided and just boring....

+100 You absolutely right, man. Shanghai, Hong Kong and Dubai look stunning and cool, but they are some ... artificial, they have no soul. Paris, London, Milan and other European metropolises just combine the history and modern motifs. Shanghai, for example, is almost completely got rid of the historical heritage and national identity lost. He now does not look Chinese, and this is bad.

Dubai yes, has no soul, but you are absolutely wrong about Shanghai or even HK. They do have lots of history.

London seems to me an enormous village. It is hard to view it as a megapolis.

I see it the same way. Thats also, what I love about Moscow and its skyline. There are so much different styles from different historical eras. There are churches, the kremlin, zhe seven sisters, modern highrises (office and also residental buildings), different towers (tv-towers) etc. That's just great.

Shanghai and HK have a soul. That are great cities. Dubai and Doha not.

How old? From XVIII and XIX century like US ? City with false neo historic buildings. Great Fire 1666 destroyed whole London.
Paris is the best city with plenty of true medieval, renaissance, baroque, classicism, art nouveau and modern buildings.

The Great Fire of London didn't destroy all of what was then London!

London still has many numerous Medieval buildings:

Tower of London
Westminster Hall
Westminster Abbey
St Bartholomew gatehouse
Temple Church
St Bartholomew-the-great
Cloth fair road
St Olave's
Temple area
Southwark cathedral

And many more.
