Some may think that humans ruined the natural landscape by building tall skyscrapers and houses, but there is some charm to them too. It is especially interesting to see the differences between cities, how they developed and how new and old cities are so different.

The most famous city skylines are considered the ones in Chicago, New York, and Dubai, but there are so many other beautiful cities. That’s why a subreddit like r/CityP*** exists where people share high-quality images of cities and those photos are real eye candy.

I like how the lanes are reflecting...making it look like a circuit board.

The subreddit was created 10 years ago in 2011 and currently has 724k members. Users share stunning photos that you can't take your eyes off of. 

These photos are not only skylines with stunning sunsets behind them but also images from the flight of a bird, interesting and unexpected places in the middle of a city or how nature intertwines with a cityscape.

In these photos you can clearly see how modern cities developed quite differently from the older ones, especially in the photos taken from above. For example, old European cities often developed organically, spreading from some sort of a center and the more modern cities were developed according to a plan so that is why they look so neat and have straight streets as opposed to curvy roads in many European cities’ historical centers.

Probably the most iconic skyline is considered the one of the Windy City, Chicago. The ten-story Home Insurance Building in Chicago, built in 1884–1885 is considered by many to be the first skyscrapers in the world. It’s not that tall by today’s standards as it’s 42.1 meters (138 feet) tall, but then it was record-setting.

Chicago’s most famous skyscraper is the 110-story Willis Tower, still commonly referred to as the Sears Tower. It’s 442 meters (1,450 feet) and adds to the beautiful skyline with Lake Michigan lying behind it.

Dresden was never on out bucket list, but so glad we went. It is beautiful and different, especially if you know the history( look it up, it's worth the read). The people are very nice too, and their opera is amazing. We went to see West Side Story there, and that was how we ended up visiting the city.

Skyscrapers are a big part of the city skyline. The most well-known skylines often are in cities with tall buildings and that have some sort of body of water nearby. In this list there are cityscapes with both taller and shorter buildings. It seems that people really like night images, probably because of the light effects.

These are the best submissions to the subreddit for you to enjoy. Tell us which cityscapes marveled you the most and don’t forget to upvote the images that you liked the better!
