Seattle, USA
Home of the 605ft Space Needle, Seattle has one of those skylines they print in silhouette on coffee mugs (which has nothing to do with the major java culture in Seattle, nor the fact that Seattle is home to Starbucks HQ). Seattle’s total area spans 53,718 acres, of which 6,189 acres are parks and open areas.

Paris, France
This list would be woefully incomplete without Paris, the skyline with one of the most well-known and well-recognized centerpieces. Looming high above the city, the Eiffel Tower stands at 1,063ft, a full 305ft above the current next-tallest building (though two 1,050ft buildings are currently under construction, expected to be completed in 2017).

Panama City, Panama
From high-rises to Spanish colonial buildings to French- and Antillean-influenced townhouses, Panama City has a wide variety of architecture to marvel at. The skyline, however, is rapidly changing and will soon no longer look as pictured, as there are over 100 highrise projects currently underway. The city’s current 127 completed projects make it 45th in the world based on highrise building count.

Philadelphia, USA
Philadelphia has some of the oldest architecture in the United States, as well as the most historically significant, including Independence Hall (birthplace of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution). A long-standing law ordained that no structure could be built taller than City Hall (erected in the late 1800s and standing only nine stories high), so Philly was skyscraper-free until 1987, when the ordinance was lifted and One Liberty Place was constructed. Since then, only the Comcast Center has been built taller, standing 57 stories high.
