Victoria - Canada

Victoria, BC has a greater population of about 400,000; it is the capital of British Columbia and it is Canada's southern most city with a climate similar to Portland. The Royal city is full of Victorian Architecture but few tall buildings due to hight restrictions.

Very large-looking, although could use some more heightage, but a very nice, dense skyline it looks like! Nice city too! 8/10

^ I would have to agree, Victoria lacks landmark buildings, it just looks like a jumbled mess.

Victoria is also a city of 74,000. That kind of judging would be good for a city of Vancouvers size, but you cant judge Victoria on tall buildings when the city is so small.

It tallest buildings are nothing special but it does have landmarks: the Parliament Buildings, the Empress, and some castles. But It lacks height, I'm not sure what it deserves yet.

I have visited there, it's a nice city with a dense & interesting core for a city of its size.
