  4. Citytalk and Urban Issues
    All the cities of the world are different. However, like langauges, climates, religions they can probably be grouped according to similarities/differences in architecture, culture, economy, history, lifestyle. E.g. Latin American cities may be all somewhat similar to each other but very...
  5. Citytalk and Urban Issues
    This is an interesting topic I think. Because some cities may have less density and that will give a "suburbish" feeling. I always hear that people say that Los Angeles feels smaller than it really is. The same with Seoul in South Korea. Here is the best list in my opinion of the largest cities...

    U principu, jako malo gradova u Nemačkoj je u potpunosti izbeglo bombardovanje R.A.F. i sovjetskih snaga u toku WW2, tako da danas u Nemačkoj nema mnogo većih i značajnijih gradova čiji su istorijski srednjovekovni centri netaknuti i u identičnom stanju u kakvom su bili i onda kada su izgrađeni...

  12. Urban Showcase
    I was lucky enough to be able to return to Singapore this month. Did almost nothing but take photographs till my feet ache, till I run out of batteries/memory or till it's to dark to shoot without a tripod. The city-state is a must-visit not only to skyscraper fans but also to anyone into urban...

It usually gives you 3 places of interest on the side at random. I chose one of those places of interests and dropped the pegman at a random...

  15. Cityscapes and Skyline Photos
    Simply put, I put in a google image search for each city and embedded the first image that appeared that was not a map, flag, text, chart, or road sign. Unsurprisingly, city skylines were heavily represented, but there were a few local quirks that sprouted up. The search query: was "City name...

    So it’s approaching that time of year, in Europe anyway where Christmas markets start appearing. These markets based on the traditional Christmas markets of Germany, turn what would otherwise be empty, sterile public squares and spaces into bustling markets full of freshly made hot food and...
