Many beautiful buildings but few stand out as the architure is so similar. The ones that catch my eye are:

London: Pure Classic
Hungary: Stunning
Canada: Bold Gothic Revival
Brazil: Absolutely brilliant

Thanks jerseyboi for the great pics and info! Was it the paving stones in the square that were arranged into a V symbol during WW2?


This is the British Columbia Parliament Buildings in the city of Victoria. This is the capital city of the Province on Canada's Pacific Coast. The city is located on Vancouver Island. Not to be confused with the city of Vancouver. That's about 1.5 hours east by ferry. You can also fly between the cities in about 30 mins. It has the mildest weather in Canada, palms, banana, eucalyptus, and many gardens are a common sight.

The buildings were built in the 1890s by Francis Rattenbury.
