Say which city and place a picture
"beauty is in the eye of a beholder"
a quick glimpse at a photo taken of Vancouver and I can tell you it looks somewhat like New York City from one angle, however instead of an open ocean I see mountains covered with snow outside of the city. Personally I find Bahamas, at least from pictures, to have the most amazing eye candy sight. The blue water with white sand and lush green surfaces with mountains of palms and exotic trees and animals. Some might find Hawaii to be an island of paradise, some may find Florida Keys to be beautiful.
It depends on how you want to defnite 'beautiful city' - either by its engineering and archetectural marvels, or by its natural habitat and environment. I'd assume you want a combination of both. Brazil has a nice combination of both natural beauty and engineering in Rio and Brasilia
Oslo, of course.
This beautiful lake (Sognsvann) lies in the middle of municipality of our capital:
It's less than half an hour from the urban centre of Oslo (about 15 minutes with private car, instead of public tranport).
Lots of pictures from Oslo may be found under the heading: "Kategorier: Oslo-bilder"

I'm also quite fond of Edinburgh.
Prague is by far the most beautiful city I've ever been to. Its just magical.
I was gonna post Prague, but Matthyesinfopalogapouw beat me to it.
montreal or northern quebec, i heard most cities by the mediterranian are nice...
there's a plac ein taiwan thats a park andtempl like... oh and i've seen pictures of the azure islands...
i dont' know if you can be biased to one city because it depends on what your looking for ...snowy peaks, clear blue water, safari animals, green lands, open lands
perhaps we should break it down into sub categories ie
best mountain city, water etc.
i did like those pics of prague especially the night shot.
and i did hear that victoria was n ice.
Bah, buildings and roads. Where are the babes? Bring on the babes.
Portland Oregon baby :!!)
Look in the east, and you will see a dormant volcano, look to the west towards the great Pacific Ocean, look to the south to our great farms, look all around for the beautiful green trees.
Florence by a narrow margin to Prague.
my favourite place: (Kerala)
2nd: (Lotus Temple, Delhi)
Wow! That doesn't even look real. Very pretty!
Hahaha. That's my neighbourhood. You can almost see my house in one of the pics. I live right on Oak Bay Avenue.
I was going to say this is one of the most beautiful places in the world but coming from someone who lives here it probably wouldn't mean much. Nice to see right away how someone acknowledged this!
Edit: Looking at the pics again I realize some of the captions are wrong. But I guess that really doesn't matter.
Hey, I can read Norweedish! That side picture says 'send postcard', right? I got it, didn't I? Geez, I am so smart...
Rio de Janeiro. It's not quite as beautiful on street level as, say, Portland or Vancouver, and doesn't have the magical quality of a Prague or Edinburgh, but it wins out because it combines a beautiful city with beautiful weather, beautiful beaches, and beautiful women. You can't beat the overall beauty.
Really, don't ever try to pronounce my name. I don't want you to hurt yourself.
Are you the one who is crossing the street in the fourth picture ?
You are a linguistic genius, I'm sure you would have understood all by yourself that the word "gjelgje" means:
"the (swingable) beam above the fireplace on the underside of which the hook is attached on which the cauldron can be hung" (so that the contents in the kettle/cauldron can be heated easily, without making its handle too hot).
Noone mentioned Paris yet? It has great architecture.
San Diego, California, USA
Pretty typical beach shot from Mission Beach.
what?! i've been living here since 1981 how could any of the captions be wrong? :grumpy:
Well, no, actually...
(I thought it was that J.Lo/Affleck movie that nobody watched.)
