the city its self is fantastic looking , but the skyline, well its not the good. the rest of the city is a 10. i give the skyline a 6.5 because for the size of the city it is to short and not that big for a canadian city of 1 millon.

pleas don get me wrong i think this is a fantastic looking city. skylines are not the only thing we can find apealing about the looks of a certin city. as for the city in question, there is a lot to be said. the old buildings in Ottawa are killer. like one other former said its a tossup between Q city and Ottawa. how much nicer than that can u get. cities like calgary have a great skyline for 1 million, but they will never have the old city like them two cities have. so, i think that is an advantage, because in the future it may also have a kick ass skyline, but calgary wont have a kick ass old city.

^ Ditto for me. 8.5/10. Maybe not a lot of "skyscrapers" but a very, very pretty city!

Ottawa just goes to show how density is much more important than height IMO. I like it. 8/10

I spent four months in this city and all I can say is that there is something abnormal about this place. Something strange. You see the parliament building and all the skyscrapers around it and than on 5 minutes walk you go to byward market and crappy areas around it. I mean cmon isnt it a bit disappointing for the capital of Canada which is one of the richest countries. Some of the embassies are located in the middle of residential area and you see homeless ppl literally a few blocks from the parliament.

Another surprising thing was that city was so open, hardly any visible security. Could go within meters of pretty much any embassy and govt building.

I was there during the whole summer and I didnt see many foriegn tourists. There were foriengers but most for work not tourism. But despite all that I liked that ppl were much more friendly than other parts of Canada (and by other parts i mean GTA... lol).

Looks like a nice town. Especially the downtown area. More height would be good for this skyline. 7/10
