despite lacking of tall buildings, Victoria downtown is relatively large for a city its size and is quite dense with lots of mid and low rises. Downtown streets are wide and packed with shops and restaurants with lots of hanging flowers baskets during the summer that makes walking around the city core is a real pleasant experience.

Best pictures of Victoria I've seen. I was really impressed when I visited a few years ago. The Empress hotel and legislature buildings are gorgeous.

a few of 150+ m tall buildings would easily put Victoria in one of top skylines list of Canada.

Loved the Victoria photo. It and Halifax are quite good for their size. Both pack in a lot more than you'd expect although the legislature in Halifax doesn't hold a candle to the one in Victoria.

In 2016-17 we might see the biggest skyline changes in Edmonton. It's about to enter the big leagues me-thinks.
