I think it looks great, but I wouldn't have minded some taller spires.

Some Norwegian skylines of yore.

Hammerfest - the city was burned to ground by the Germans during the war.

Would be a nice addition to the skyline!

Here is a site, where is all information about this fund, what is willing to rebuild this nice church (unfortunately only in lithuanian): http://www.svjono.lt/topic/index.html

Nice angle, Oslo needs a few taller towers, f.e. of similar height as those cranes.

Two Oslo shots (again I know).

Telthusbakken skyline. Believe it or not, but this small scale village is actually right in the middle of the city surrounded by 19th century buildings on all sides.

And zoom out and this is the view that will great you:

That looks like some random city in the States. Parking lots and skyscrapers.

Gothenburg is way underrepresented in this thread, it seems people forget that Gothenburg is in the same size category as Oslo and Helsinki and is the 5th largest nordic city after the capitals. Here is a little push for my city! :-)



it should have been three pictures here but i cant figure out how to share them, this is silly ffs!

People post the pictures they want, it's not like the cities have a quota based on some unwritten criteria. You are one having to make a difference!

Some true words there!
Sad thing that they turned so nice and welcoming pretty cities into cold and ugly commie areas!

Although I'm not saying that all of Klaipeda is like that, it's still a very sad thing!
