Major cities without skyscrapers

Guys know any major city that doesn't have a skyscraper or any city where the tallest building is only 7 stories high?

I seriously doubt it unless it's completely obscure.

I think 7 stories is too strict!

Anyway, though it has buildings over 7 stories, this city does not have any skyscrapers

Washington DC


another one,

San Marino

Those cities are tiny. Fiji only has a population of 800K


Madrid would have been one a couple years ago but it's finally building tall buildings, and already has a couple talls.

Others

Mumbai
St. Petersburg
Prague
Berlin
Phoenix
San diego

La Defense isn't in the municipality of Paris. And the thread title says skyscrapers plural. Montparnasse is only one building. Semantics... Gotta love 'em!

Washington does have many in the 12-15 range though, even if the tallest is only 96 m that's still something.

I think Vientiane, the sleepy capital of Laos, has a height restriction of 7 storeys.
Recently, I think this year, a company bypassed the restriction by building a midrise on a sandy island in the river. I hate that building!

edit: it's not a very large city, with a population of maybe 500 000

You're right.

I stayed in a hotel/condo under 1km from the Eiffel tower (I think it was called Flathotel). It was about 30-35 floors.
