- Moscow, Russia

- New York, United States
- Dubai, United Arab Emirates
- San Francisco, United States
- Hong Kong
- Honolulu, Hawaii
- Shanghai, China
- Bangkok, Thailand
A city that is not to be underestimated when it comes to skylines, is Moscow. You will find at least 7 of the 10 tallest buildings in Europe in one single view. In between Moscow’s modern buildings you will also find many old churches, providing a nice and varied city view.
The Tokyo Tower is basically similar to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Without it, the city view is just not complete. Surrounded by dozens of towers, the Tokyo Tower is the shining star in the center of the city. Tokyo's skyscrapers are relatively small because of earthquake risks, but they are no less beautiful for it. Especially at night, you get to enjoy a beautiful view over the city, filled with shining lights.
New York, United States
This list is not complete without the skyline of this impressive American metropolis. The Rockefeller Center offers an amazing view. From here you can see the beautiful skyline of downtown Manhattan, and admire the Empire State Building too. Another great skyline in New York is the one over Central Park. Such beautiful greenery and so many buildings, seen at one glance, is really impressive.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The fastest-growing skyline at the moment is the Dubai skyline. Spot the Burj Khalifa from the water and admire the tallest building in the world, measuring 828 meters. But it is not just from the water that you get to see a beautiful skyline. From the desert, you also get a super cool view of the Dubai skyline.
San Francisco, United States
A trip to San Francisco is not complete without having seen the Golden Gate Bridge, with beautiful San Francisco rising up behind it. There is some luck involved in seeing the bridge completely, as it can be quite foggy, but on a clear day, it is definitely recommended to head to Battery Spencer and enjoy the view from there.
Like all other cities, Hong Kong has an impressive skyline. Due to a lack of space, Hong Kong has been built to the sky. Victoria Peak offers the best city view. From Victoria Harbour, at night you can feast your eyes on the many lights that completely transform the atmosphere.
Honolulu’s skyline might not include as many tall buildings as the other cities in this blog, but it is no less beautiful for it. What makes Honolulu's skyline so much fun to watch, is the abundance of palm trees on the wonderful beach in front of the skyline. Because of that, this is the most relaxed skyline of them all.
London is by no means the only city with a Ferris wheel right in the city center. Singapore has its very own London Eye. From up here, you get to see a beautiful view over the city, including the Marina Bay Sands hotel. This hotel consists of three large buildings, featuring a roof terrace with a surface of 12,400 m2.
A recent addition to the Shanghai skyline is the Shanghai Tower. Opened in 2016, this tower is 632 meters high, making it the second tallest skyscraper in the world. Like many others, this city is also very different when seen at nighttime, due to the miraculous light shows in the sky.
Bangkok is a vibrant city, combining a modern skyline with numerous Buddhist temples. The beautiful view depicted on this picture of Bangkok is of Wat Arun (a Buddhist temple) which is very impressive, especially at night.
